smelter

Postby nuneintense » Mon Aug 28, 2017 10:17 pm

returning player here and just wondering.. Is it now the usual for smelters to only give 1 bar of pig iron for every 5-6 runs of the smelter? Use about 10 lime per load. I get a lot of blank slots where bars would normally be. It's on a claim behind locked wall so nobody is stealing it.

The smelter formula is new, and nerfed. The alloying formula is bugged so you'll have to wait for that to be fixed to balance out the metal outputs.

Provided you have enough lime the best combo still seems to be 13/12 ore to lime ratio, or 14/11 i think.

You should be getting 1-2 bars per run with 13/12 ratio.

Out of 36 smelters I get an average of 53 bars a run with the 13/12 method.

You'll even get 3 bars occasionally and very very rarely 4

Means it is really random

Also it looks like the "carry over" is no more, I tested it and smelted in a smelter repeatedly with a ratio that gives just below 1 bar per smelting, and it never returned a single bar, yet there were empty spots in between the dross where bars should have been. That's kinda dumb. -.-

I don't know **** about programming, but couldn't silver ore just be unflagged as addable to an ore smelter? Wasn't that the only ore that was worth abusing?

I have been doing 11 lime each load the rest iron and I have been getting 1-2 bars. If it's 1 bar the first load then it's 2 bars the second load..

You are completely right.
But no, lets ***** up the entire smelting system because you cant make silver ore unsmeltable and add silver bars to any of the npc stalls.
Atleast untill you have the time to actually fix it.
