A mine can be refuelled by hand (by equpping a fuel can, then holding
LMB) or by using a Fuel Tanker, it is much quicker to use a fuel tanker.
Whilst fueled, it dispenses Sulfur into the inventory at a constant cycle. Fuel type does not change the speed of a cycle, only the amount produced.
A mine can holds up to 1,000 liters (or 10 cans) of each type of Fuel.
All mines function the same except in some key variables. They all take a unit of Fuel to create 1 process which creates a set Number of resources based on the Fuel Type. They do not work faster on Petrol but simply create more resources in the same time resulting in saved time.
- At low efficency 2 sulfur is put into the inventory every 4 seconds.
- At high efficency 3 sulfur is made instead every 4 seconds.
This means that 1 can of diesel produces 200 Sulfur and 1 can of Petrol produces 300 in the same time. It consumes an entire can of a fuel type in 300 seconds or 5 minutes.
The sulfur produced can be retrieved by hand using
Left Click on the sulfur icon on the right side of the Mine's interface, one stack at a time. From the driver seat of a truck you can use
Shift + Left Click to retrieve 3 stacks at a time.
There is an invisible loading area in front of the mine that allows to place containers to transfer resources directly, similar to the loading area at a Refinery. To find the exact spot, simply aim the crane's arm that's lifting the container near the front of the mine until your cursor becomes a gear symbol.
- Check a mine's inventory and fuel status from the map by hovering your mouse pointer over the mine's icon.
- The Sulfur Mine creates Sulfur and is the only early game way to acquire Heavy Explosive Materials for Howitzers until the sulfur can be acquired by mining.
