The Sand Quarry is the only source of Sand . Sand can be sent for processing at the Steelworks together with Iron and Coal or Diesel to create Steel .
Sand is also used mixed with cement in Concrete Plant to make Cement Tokens . If you play with Random Quests Enabled (see Game Settings), then you will receive quest Glassworks in 5th Era, where you can deliver Sand to Glassworks building to produce Goods .
The base version of the Sand Quarry generates 2 units of Sand per every two Game ticks. There are 2 extensions that can be built on adjacent tiles to the base building that improve the Sand production.
Some of the buildings can be connected to the electrical network from Era 5 onward, which will increase their production. The amount of electrification production bonus (if applicable) is shown in the brackets at each extension.
The base Sand Quarry production is:
|Sand quarry||-||2 + (1 )||2|| Random shape |
(9 tiles total)
|Workers' accommodation|| 400
|-||1 + (1 )||1||1x2||-|
