So Bauxite dust melts at 2800K to make Aluminium but Aluminium has a boiling point of 2792K.
Tried it just to be sure and yeah Bauxite melted in Aluminium, which immediately evaporated to nothingness :3
Intended as an incentive to get Aluminium from Electrolyzer/Centrifuge ?
Definitely intended, although there are tricks to it. Whether these tricks are fair game or exploits is up
Of course, there is also the combination recipe with either sodium or potassium (although finding enough of
those to make that route viable will depend on the ores you've found).
Remember that until about the 1870s - early 1880s, aluminium was more expensive than gold. Cheap, mass
production of aluminium is very much a product of the electrical age.
Edit: Anyone know what the Red Pill does? Now that I have several metric tons of paraffin wax I decided to make
a few pill capsules.
I half expected the Red Pill to delete my save and display the message "This is all just a game. Go outside."
But after backing up my save, I gave one a try and I'm not sure what it's done to me....
