Toolworks Default Model.PNG


The Toolworks is where all the resources (Icon timber.png Icon coal.png Icon iron.png) in the game are converted into the relevant tokens (Token timber.png Token coal.png Token iron.png). The Toolworks also produces goods. Each extension added to the Toolworks improves both the rate and the efficiency of conversion from resource to token. The base Toolworks always consumes a fixed number of resources per Game tick: 3 Timber Icon timber.png, 4 Coal Icon coal.png or 3 Iron Icon iron.png. Each conversion is a separate process; therefore it can produce a single type of Token or all three types simultaneously.

Processes

The number of Tokens that a Toolworks returns for a particular resource changes between different buildings on the same map. As a result, it is always worth looking at all the Toolworks on the map and finding out which converts a particular resource the best. For example, within the same map two Toolworks had the following base operations:

Toolworks 1 with a high conversion Toolworks 2 with a low conversion

This shows that in a single map, between two separate Toolworks, one can produce 3 times as many Iron Tokens Token iron.png for every three units of Iron Icon iron.png supplied. This effect does not only affect Iron Icon iron.png: Coal Icon coal.png and Timber Icon timber.png can both have different conversion rates between Toolworks. Extensions work is in a similar manner, as each extension will provide higher number of Tokens at one Toolworks than the same extension for a different Toolworks on the map. In the case of both the base Toolworks and extensions, the number of resources required remains constant with the number tokens received changing between buildings. The only exception to this is the product storage extension which always has a 1 to 1 conversion on all three resources.
