Dwarf Fortress Pig Iron Guide – The recipe, getting the ingredients, uses, some tips, and a farming video guide
Pig iron is mostly used in the production of steel, but it can also be employed in structures that permit the use of bars and have no restrictions on the kind of bars that can be used.
Dwarf Fortress Pig Iron Guide – Recipe & Ingredients
These are the ingredients you need to make Pig Iron (its recipe), and how to get them:
Pig Iron Recipe = Iron Bar + Flux Stone + Coal Bar
- Iron Bar: Except for hematite, which is occasionally found in igneous extrusive layers, all three of the iron ores—hematite, magnetite, and limonite—can only be found in sedimentary strata. Four iron bars can be made from any of these iron ores by melting them in a smelter.
- Flux Stone: Sedimentary strata made of limestone, dolomite, and chalk can contain significant amounts of iron-bearing ore. Since marble is a metamorphic layer, it can be found in virtually any habitat. In contrast to sedimentary layers, marble can also be found in the same biome as igneous extrusive strata (i.e., close to volcanoes).
- Coal Bar: A dwarf with the ability to do wood burning labor turns wood logs into charcoal in a wood furnace. One unit of either charcoal or coke is necessary in the reaction as a source of carbon when melting pig iron or steel at any location. Once more, there is no difference.
Once you have gathered all the ingredients you can created Pig Iron at a smelter by a dwarf with the furnace operating labor activated
Pig Iron Uses
Pig iron is mostly used as a component in the production of steel, but it can also be used in structures that permit the use of bars and have no restrictions on the kind of bars that can be used. It cannot, however, be used to create any other goods. Although the manager must place an order before the option may be used at the forge, it is still possible to stud other items with pig iron.
Pig iron can be preferred by dwarves, and they will thrive in a space with pig iron walls and flooring. Having a couple extra pig iron bars on hand could be moderately helpful in odd moods.
