Condensed Carbon is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Condensed Carbon (C+) is a resource and one of the fuel elements.

Game description[edit | edit source]

Advanced material, processed from regular carbon in a Refiner.

The increased molecule density offers a substantially improved energy-per-gram ratio.

Occasionally found in crystalline form. Harvesting large crystals may require an Advanced Mining Laser.

Sources[edit | edit source]

  • In crystal minerals located on nearly every planet. The larger minerals require an Advanced Mining Laser. These are visible on the Scanner.

Condensed Carbon can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • PRODUCT.FUELPROD.png Carbon Crystal x1  →  SUBSTANCE.FUEL.2.png Condensed Carbon x150  ("Carbon Melting", 2 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.FUEL.1.png Carbon x2  →  SUBSTANCE.FUEL.2.png Condensed Carbon x1  ("Condense Carbon", 0.45 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.FUEL.1.png Carbon x2  +  SUBSTANCE.AIR.1.png Oxygen x2  →  SUBSTANCE.FUEL.2.png Condensed Carbon x5  ("Oxygenate Carbon", 0.9 sec./unit output)
