[A16] Steel extraction (More steel)
« on: July 28, 2016, 05:40:25 AM »

Extract additional steel from rock chunks!

A simple mod that helps you with your steel supply without changing the whole gameplay.
This mod also works with already existing save files!



+ You can now select "Smelt metal from debris" at the electric smelter to get
8x steel from 1x rock chunk (of any kind) (you need a crafting skill of at least 5 to do this).
+ Smelting slag will now bring 20x instead of 10x metal

So if you have no supply of steel anymore, not even slags, you will now be able to choose whether you need stone bricks or not. If not, go and melt them to make huge amounts of steel. If yes, you can cut them and still get some steel.
No more waiting for random events to bring you only a hand full of steel, finally you can be independent! :D
In a normal scenario with a big map and mountains you probably won't need this mod, but when you try new scenarios this mod will come in very handy, especially in the late game


Mod the Mod:

If you need even more steel you can edit the mod files:

Go to Defs/RecipeDefs and open the .xml using a text editor.
Then search for
where you can change the amount of steel you get for melting slag. And
where you can change the amount of steel you get for melting normal rocks.


Can modpack makers include your mod in their modpack? Yes
Can other modders make derivative mods based on yours? Yes
