|— In-game description|
The Refinery is a structure found in towns. It is used to convert raw resources into materials. It can convert Salvage into Basic Materials, Diesel and Explosive Materials, Components into Refined Materials and Sulfur into Heavy Explosive Materials. It can also convert Crude Oil into Petrol, Aluminum into Aluminum Alloy, and Iron into Iron Alloy.
- All resources are processed at different ratios which is displayed in the refinery interface.
You can access the refinery while on foot, in a vehicle, or in the attached stationary crane. Open up the refinery by pressing
e near the door or from the crane. To refine a raw material into a refined material you must have the raw material in your personal inventory (backpack, truck, or resource container) or the refinery inventory. Click on the icon that corresponds with the raw resource you have.
Left click will refine 1 predefined stack from your inventory,
Shift + Left click will refine all available specific resource in your inventory. This will prioritize pulling from your personal inventory first.
Cancel a craft you will LOSE all progress and be returned the original raw resource amount.
To retrieve the materials once refined, press
Left click to retrieve it all in your inventory, or press
Right click and choose "Retrieve as Crate" if you want the materials in crate form which are reservable and can be placed in a private reserve stockpile at a Storage Depot or Seaport. A shipping container can be placed on the loading platform with the crane to move crated materials out of the refinery.
If an enemy town is captured, its refinery can only be rebuilt once the "Industry" Base Upgrade has been unlocked.
