Getting aluminum

#1 2017-09-24 10:27:45
Hi! There is no more aluminum left in the colony. The only structure i have left that produces a small amount of aluminum is the Medical Research senter , and i am already so low on aluminum, that i cant afford to buy more of those. Any ideas? :)

I will assume that you are playing a human. My suggestion is to get enough aluminum to build a Medium Recycling Center (1,200 aluminum). It provides a minimal amount of aluminum and plastic, but you produce Trash all the time anyway.

Make sure to research alien tech for the Aluminum Generator. It takes a lot of patience to get the 25,000 microchips, but if you keep building them sooner or later your Aluminum production will reach a more bearable level.

Alternatively, join a Commonwealth that has a fully functional Zolarg colony and barter with that colony for aluminum, usually they will need gold and ore (and wood if an ice planet) to make aluminum.

thank you :-) Right now i only have the one Medium Recycling center. I have deactivaded the artificial sweetener factories , since they seem to be using aluminum. I was hoping to save up enough A to buy another recycling center. Its still on zero tho.... And i think maby the leader of the commonwealth has stopped playing, or i could have asked for some...:/

Ask to be annexed by an active commonwealth if you find yours to be dead.

Yes, the artificial sweetener factories and robot factories suck up aluminum so if you have them, deactivate them.

There's a problem with that though... You need aluminum to get something that produces it... I am having the same exact problem
