I found a new way to make carbon dust


(TiCl4) #1

As everyone knows,we can’t centrifuge ash to make carbon dust in the new version,but I found a new way to make carbon dust.
Step 1: coal dust + quartz dust ==mix== black quartz dust
Step 2: black quartz dust ==centrifuge== silicon dioxide dust + carbon dust

I don’t know does it accord with GregoriusT’s setting.If not,this is a bug,please fix it.

This seems OP…

Try Sugar + Sulfuric Acid. That gives tooooooons of Carbon, and both Sugar and Sulfuric Acid are way more common than Coal.

sulfuric acid more common than coal? Mhhh… You need coal to power the machines in order to produce carbon, and it takes a lot of time…
Anyway, he’s asking if this way is “cheaty”, not if that’s worth it xD

But sulfur dioxide needs steel,steel needs carbon dust.So the first carbon dust can’t be made by this method.

But Graphite can be found for that. You can just use Graphite to make Steel, since Graphite turns into Carbon when thrown into the Crucible. 25 Iron Ingots to Steel per Graphite Dust. :wink:
