Wood Gasification

by cappie

Too much wood? No oil on your map? Want petroleum gas, solid fuel or crude oil instead? Then this mod's for you! Wood gasification is the process of turning wood into it's carbohydrate constituents and releasing its chemical potential in the form of petroleum gas and diluted bitumen (which itself can be converted to crude oil) (Languages available: English, Dutch, German, Russian, French, Polish, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese)

Changelog

Version: 3.1.0
Date: 2020-11-26
  Changes:
    - Updated for Faction 1.1
Version: 3.0.0
Date: 2020-11-26
  Changes:
    - Updated for Faction 1.0
    - Made the recipes easier since wood is early game and people install this mod on purpose
  Rebalancing:
    - Wood gasification costs 50 automation science (simple to research)
    - Wood gasification of bitumen to oil costs 100 automation and logistic science (it's simple science, but hard to perfect)
    - Advanced wood gasification costs 400 automation and logistic science (wood-to-oil easy-mode will take some effort)
Version: 2.5.0
Date: 2020-03-18
  Changes:
    - Added Spanish, Italian and Portuguese translations using Deepl.com
    - Changed some Dutch translations
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed my broken changelog (I REALLY need automated tests and a changelog linter for these factorio mods)
Version: 2.4.0
Date: 2020-03-14
  Changes:
    - Added Polish and French translations
Version: 2.3.0
Date: 2020-02-06
  Rebalancing:
    - Wood gasification costs 100 automation and logistic science (reasonably simple to research)
    - Wood gasification of bitumen to oil costs 400 automation and logistic science (it's simple science, but hard to perfect)
    - Advanced wood gasification costs 150 automation, logistic and chemical science (wood-to-oil easy-mode will take some effort)
    - Wood gasification uses 10 wood to produce 20 petroleum gas and 8 bitumen (80% efficient)
    - Wood gasification enables you to convert 32 bitumen into 1 solid fuel (75% efficient)
    - Advanced bitumen processing uses 32 bitumen and 200 water to produce 40 crude oil (90% efficient (crude oil takes another efficiency hit during refining))
    - Advanced wood gasification uses 20 wood and 200 water to produce 15 heavy oil, 15 light oil and 30 petroleum gas (90% efficient)
  Changes:
    - Changed the text string of Tar into Diluted Bitumen to be somewhat more scientifically correct, internally it's all still 'tar' for brevity.
    - Added bitumen processing to crude oil using bitumen upgrading so you can turn wood into crude oil
    - Added wood-gasification-to-oil as a new researchable technology after advanced wood gasification
    - Updated the balancing.xls to show the calculations behind the wood-gasification-to-oil recipe
    - Updated the source.psd after creating the graphics for the new wood-gasification-to-oil recipe and technology
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed wood (and water) showing up as raw product for other oil-related products (this should be crude oil, not wood)
    - Fixed the graphics by removing the coal that was still in there from older versions
  Notes:
    - Just FYI: this version of the mod still works with 0.17.x
  Broke:
    - The Russian and German translations probably need work since I used Google translate for the new tech.
    - I tried not to break too much, but your wood processing setups probably need some love and attention.
