Prospective Posted October 15, 2004 Report Share Posted October 15, 2004 All, Ok, on my T1 orders I screwed up and over produced converting RR's to iron. While not a bad thing in the grand scheme of things, I used up all my industries and did not end up producing the fuel tankage as I had expected. This generates a question which hopefully someone can assist me on... Lets say I want to produce fuel tanks. It takes 5 steel to make 1 fuel tank, but the resulting fuel tank weighs 1 ton. How do I account for it when calculating industrial complex usage? Do I take the output of 1 industrial complex, which produces 250tons of material and divide it by 5 (the amount of material input)? That would mean that for each industrial complex, I can make 50 fuel tanks... Or, do I divide it by the output tonnage? That would mean that 1 industrial complex will be able to produce 250 fuel tanks per turn. Which is correct? I suspect the former, but you never know and I don't have a concrete example from which to judge. I really don't want to screw up this turn and try to overproduce (or underproduce). Thanks.
