Description

Unified Foundry

For Iron, Steel, Copper, Glass, Silicon, & Gold Smelting
v2.2.2
Author: Calen

Description

The Unified Foundry provides a single facility to produce everything that utilizes a molten channel. It is designed for use from mid to end game. The modules of the Unified Foundry are designed to link seamlessly together. Therefore, it is very important to read the description for each blueprint to read installation instructions and points of connection to the design. Also, be sure to check out the Peripherals subfolder, which has transport and ore crusher blueprints.

Stages of the Unified Foundry:

Note: See https://imgur.com/a/yX0XgXR for installation pictures

  • Stage 1: Initial Build for Iron, Steel, Copper, & Glass Smelting
  • Stage 1a: Recycling - NEW!
  • Stage 2: Silicon Production
  • Stage 3: Cooling Tower Upgrade
  • Stage 4: Gold Smelting
  • Stage 5: Glass II Upgrade
  • Stage 6: Arc Furnace II Upgrade for Silicon
  • Stage 7: Arc Furnace II Upgrade for Everything Else

Note: The Recycling module is new and therefore may undergo further integration into the whole. For now, it's its own module. It's best to install this once the transport blueprints have been laid down. Also, I haven't updated the tables below to reflect its addition yet as I don't think it has reached its final state.

Tips

  1. Use the UF Footprint Guide blueprint to make sure you have enough space.
  2. Start with constructing the pipes, conveyors, and storage first. Then construct the buildings as needed.
  3. Upgrade conveyors to tier III as needed and able.

@Djinsomnia - I'm not seeing this problem. It could have been a misplacement or small unevenness of the ground, both of which have happened to me.
Hey, love the Blueprint works amazingly - Found a single pipe missing on the steam/Cooling tower lines between the exhaust scrubbers and cooling towers.
Took me an hour to figure out why everything was full of steam and cooling towers weren't working lol

@KT9Q - Good idea! I hadn't thought about that. I think the reason I hadn't is because I build an entire conveyor network for sulfur on my island. So in my games I'm not wasting it, I'm just shipping it elsewhere for processing into acid. But I really like the idea of processing it on site. I'll need another ingress water pipe for the water needed for mixers. I could use the former acid ingress pipe, although I may still need that if sulfur production doesn't meet acid needs. I'll bet there are scenarios where it doesn't. Also, where do I put the mixers? Your blueprint works for pre 2.2 builds, but after 2.2 the recycling module is in the way. I will ponder. Thanks again for the good idea.

Given how much sulfur this produces because of the exhaust scrubbers plus how much acid it needs its a shame there's not a couple of mixers built in to internalize the production of it.

Here is an upgrade to solve that:

Feel free to do whatever with it.

@PiggyWhiskey - So... as it turns out, when I changed the piping for the large cooling tower above the gold foundry, I did not update the arc furnace II steam piping for the glass furnaces. Perhaps that was your issue? This has now been fixed. However, if you were still having difficulties (understandable since it's a complicated upgrade), I have added images here: https://imgur.com/a/yX0XgXR.

Lastly, I did update this blueprint with a completed build.
Any chance of getting a final stage complete blueprint?
I keep messing up the Copper/Iron/Steel upgrade to Arc Furnace 2
Thanks, Zapatosh!
Nice Job, I really like your Blueprints, this one but also the others. Keep it up.
