Stationeers Steel guide – the recipe, fuel for the furnace, farming the ingredients, crafting steel and uses as an ingredient

Stationeers Steel – Recipe

You can create x1 Steel Ignot in a Furnace using x3 Iron Ore and also x1 Coal, so the recipe is:

x4 Steel Ignot = x3 Iron Ore + x1 Coal

(if you want for example 200 Steel, you will need 150 Iron ore and also 50 Coal)

Other recipe requirements:

  • Presure: Min = 1Mpa | Max = 100 Mpa
  • Temperature (K): Min = 900K | Max = 100kK
  • Temperature (ºC): Min = 627ºC | Max = 99727ºC

Stationeers Steel – How to Get in Early Game

Fuel for the Furnace

Before you try to melt any metal in the furnace you need fuel for the furnace

Ice (Oxite) and Ice (Volatiles) can be manually input directly in the furnace in order to create crude gas mixtures necessary for smelting this ingot. But use the exact ratio: x1 Ice (Oxite) to x2 Ice (Volatiles). To farm botht:

  • Ice (Oxite): mined throughout the surface and underground of a planet or an asteroid using a Mining Drill or Pickaxe (Tip: Equip the mining belt to collect the ore automatically without meltin)
  • Ice (Volatiles): mined throughout the surface and underground of a planet or an asteroid using a Mining Drill or Pickaxe (Tip: Equip the mining belt to collect the ore automatically without meltin)

So take your 2 volatiles, put them in the door, then hit the red button a couple of times and you’ll see the top door open again. Put in the Oxcite, and hit the button a few times again

Farming the ingredients

Remember: x4 Steel Ignot = x3 Iron Ore + x1 Coal, so you need to farm

  • Iron Ore: throughout the surface and underground of a planet or an asteroid using a Mining Drill
  • Coal: throughout the surface of the moon, or asteroids using a Mining Drill

Crafting Steel

Put the ore in and the door will open back up when it’s done processing the item you put in there. If you hold your cursor over the window on the front, it will give you some nice info. Same with the gauge on the right. (You’ll need the gauge info later in the game to make the more exotic metals).
Once you have all the ore and coal in the furnace, and you’ve got your cursor over the window, you should see something along the lines of “Will produce XXXg of Steel. At that point, pull the lever on the left of the furnace and an ingot will plop out the bottom.
