Foundry Plain.png

The Foundry building converts Coal Icon coal.png and Iron Ore Icon iron ore.png. Both resources are produced by coal mines and iron ore mines which both need transporting to a foundry in order for them to be converted into Iron Icon iron.png. It is used to produce Iron Tokens Token iron.png and to complete challenges, it used by two buildings: a Toolworks and the Ruined Church. Foundries are an Era II building, therefore when transitioning from the Early Steam Era to the Steam Era several Foundries will appear in random locations across the map.

Processes

The base unit of the Foundry consumes 5 Coal Icon coal.png and 3 Iron Ore Icon iron ore.png and produces 2 Iron Icon iron.png and 2 Coal Tokens Token coal.png every Game tick. There are two extensions that can be added to the foundry. The Sheet metal mill provides a more balanced process, requiring equal amounts Coal Icon coal.png and Iron Ore Icon iron ore.png, however, the process is considerably slower than the other processes of the foundry. Meanwhile the Blast furnace provides a large increase to production output of the foundry. Overall, a Foundry with both extensions will consume 11 Coal Icon coal.png and 8 Iron Ore Icon iron ore.png while producing 4.5 Iron Icon iron.png and 4.5 Coal Tokens Token coal.png every Tick.

The base production process for the Foundry is shown below:
