Tertiary resource plant

Tertiary resource plant

The Tertiary Resource Plant is not each player's personal construction, but a state enterprise that can be used by any player.

Recycling a secondary resource into building material (tertiary resource) is available to princes and clones who have their own settlement with developed secondary production factories. Any clone can create an order to process a resource, but orders will only be executed if the clone has personal processing limits (see section below).

The cost of producing a tertiary resource

Recycled tertiary resource is released from the factory in packs (several resource pieces in each). The cost of producing one package of building material is fixed at 0.01 Gold for treated wood and stone, and 0.1 Gold for treated iron.

Processing limits

There are daily processing limits for each type of product: plant limits and personal clone limits.

Factory limit

The number of product packs produced by the plant per day is limited by the plant's production limit for this product. Each type of product has its own limit.

The plant limit can change once a day (immediately after production) depending on the value of the total processing ratio for the past day:

total recycling rate = the amount of total recycled resource spent on recycling / current plant production limit

If the value of this indicator is more than 1.5 - the limit is increased by:

  • 5% × (total processing ratio - 1.5)

percent relative to the current value.

If the value is less than 1.5 - the limit is reduced by:

-10% × (1.5 - total recycling rate)

percent relative to the current value.

If the value is equal to 1.5 - the limit does not change.

The plant cannot produce more products per day than the limit allows it.

Personal limit of a clone

Each clone also has a limit on the maximum amount of product it can process per day.

The limit of a clone for a certain type of product is calculated as the sum of the maximum processing volume of this secondary product in the administrative unit belonging to it and in the principality.

Recycling warrants

Creating an order

Resources are processed by creating a processing order by the clone, which is executed by the factory once a day, at 18:00 GMT.

When creating an order, you must select the type of tertiary resource and specify the desired number of packages for production.

The maximum amount of production in a clone's orders is unlimited, but the daily production on orders cannot exceed the clone's personal limit for that product.

When an order is created, the necessary amount of resources and gold coins are reserved from the clone. When an order is deleted, the reserve is returned to the owner.

Processing rate

An important factor in the factory's processing of your order will be the recycling rate you set. It determines the number of units of secondary raw materials that you are willing to give to get 1 unit of a tertiary resource.

The higher the recycling rate, the higher your order will be in the queue of all submitted orders, and therefore the higher your chances of getting a resource.

Order queue

Orders created by all clones within a day are queued up. Once a day, at 18:00 GMT, orders are processed by the factory sequentially, according to the queue, and the processed resource goes to the clones in the inventory.

The first in the queue are the orders with the highest processing rate. If the value of the coefficient is the same, the order that was placed earlier by time will take the top line.

If there is not enough plant limit to fulfill all orders for the current day, the remaining orders will go into the next day's queue.
