wait actually this is maybe we can talk about this one here boom MK2 smelter first of all QA site if you want to, suggest features, but, we've talked about this on stream before but we haven't talked about it for quite a while but wait that's the wrong command my bad here we are, so the the idea of like MK2 production buildings MK2 Constructors or whatever, has been requested before and it makes a you know a bit of sense that people would naturally go hey I have this one thing wouldn't it be cool if it could be better, but like the the question there is like what is that what does that necessarily mean like if you've got a if you've got a Constructor and it makes things what does an MK2 Constructor do it makes maybe more complex things well then you got like an assembler, or you know you've got like foundries right, for yeah because you smelt as The Foundry exactly right so instead of like calling it like an MK2 Constructor or MK2 smelter we just add different buildings which do sort of the same thing, you might also think well MK2, would be quicker but that's what overclocking is for and ALT recipes so, I don't yeah so so like Foster doesn't really even make too much sense either, because overclocking is for the speed and then other buildings are for the complex parts and ALT recipes are for a combination of the two so- I don't think it makes too much sense I don't think Martin smelter finally smelts Limestone I think that's finally smelled faster oh I wonder if we could get it I wonder if we get an old recipe for an honor, one other aspect of it as well, is that if we do if we would have wanted to do like Mark II buildings of the buildings we probably don't want to just slap like a stick around and say like this is Mark II building like we would want to make them visually look like a Mark II who's melter or Mark II construct or whatever and that's like effort and time that we could have spent on something else that doesn't feel like super worth the time at the moment Oscar and in production yep okay well interesting question follow up why have Mark II minor then, and the reason is because the speed is dramatically increased it's not simply overclocking like, that that's basically why so like the the mark the The Marked miners, offer kind of like, what's the word I'm looking for here, like like levels of access to resources right that you're kind of limited to until you unlock the next one and it helps sort of with progression, and and so what we're saying is there are Mark II Constructors and there are Mark II smelters they're just not called Mark II Constructors and they're not cold Mark juice melters they're just assemblers or manufacturers or foundries or whatever that's what they are we just didn't call them Mark II it's also you have a limited amount of nodes like whereas with Constructors if you want to produce twice as many then you can build another Constructor whereas with miners you can't place more miners on the same node as well so it makes sense to upgrade those those buildings as well because you only have like yeah more out of the map yeah that's that's kind of why, MK2, Cole, biomass generator that's the coal generator yep there it is


, one more ingots get the pure Indian recipe exactly there are recipes as well for more efficient stuff or more situational things if you want a specific you don't mind certain trade-offs but you want a specific resource go for all recipes MK2 Andrew Wen the world isn't ready Mark II doggo that's that that's the one you have I have the mark one over here yeah I got the market doggo right here
