Player Tips & Tricks

  • The output of X-ray Cracking directly aligns with the requirements to create Energy Matrix, and is the primary purpose.
    • It is not recommended to use X-ray Cracking outside of this purpose as there are simpler, more power efficient ways to obtain Hydrogen and Energetic Graphite directly.
  • The products of X-Ray Cracking (3 total refineries) have a total energy of (6.3 MJ/Energetic Graphite * 30 Energetic Graphite/min) + (8 MJ/Hydrogen * 45 Hydrogen/min) = 549 MJ/min = 9.15 MJ/s = 9.15 MW
    • Given that this setup consumes only 2.88 MJ, plus (18kW * 11 Sorter Mk.I) = 0.198 MW (one sorter per input/output), and an additional 0.84 MW for the oil extractor (which can be spread across multiple triplicates of refineries), this is an energy positive process.
    • It is not recommended to use X-ray Cracking to generate sustainable power due to the limited nature of Crude Oil when Thermal Power Stations are relevant.
  • Reforming Refine (Tech) with refineries coverts 2 Refined Oil, 1 Hydrogen, and 1 Coal into 3 Refined Oil.
    • For the cost of a coal this, combined with Plasma Refining, allows the production of Refined Oil without byproduct production of Hydrogen.
    • Combined with X-ray cracking, and a one-time jump-start input of refined oil and hydrogen, this allow conversion of Coal to Energetic Graphite at a 1:1 ratio; rather than Smelting Purification's 2:1 ratio.
