Volcanic ash makes barren land fertile

Recommended Posts


The use of igneous rocks is too limited, and the benefits of developing volcanoes are too low. The volcanic ash generated by volcanic eruptions in "Civilization 6" and "Terraformers" can make barren land fertile and promote agriculture. Volcanoes with 'oxygen not included' can only be used for power generation.

Generally, by the 50th to 100th day after the start of the game, experienced players already have sufficient power supply. And developing volcanoes requires unlocking steam generator technology, at least after the 200th day, and the benefits are only increasing some electricity. Players spend 2 hours developing volcanoes, which is a waste of time.

The volcanoes in Terraformers are all dead volcanoes that require players to activate with tritium. In 'oxygen not included', players have a large amount of enriched uranium in the later stage, and in 'Factorio', enriched uranium can be used to make nuclear bombs. That "oxygen not included" should be able to produce nuclear bombs using enriched uranium and then detonate dead volcanoes to obtain the soil needed for agriculture.

This not only solves the problem of limited application scenarios for enriched uranium, but also enhances the development value of volcanoes.

What is ash chemically?(Google)

Volcanic ash. The ash contains dozens of minerals including magnesium, calcium, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron and zinc; all important to plant growth.

Wood ash. Depending on what is burned, ash can consist of different chemical components. However, the main chemical component of ash is carbon, with varying amounts of other elements including calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus - all of which were not burned when the fuel was used.

Byproduct for wood burner.


Perhaps if volcano produces hot gas called ash as well. Cool and refine it for more materials. So a standard volcano could produce multiple resources from 1 vent. I think there is something to that.
