Hi,

I have a question about alchemy to which I haven't found an answer on forum or the new wiki yet. The dev blog states this:

"Let's take ferrofluid as an example. Currently it takes 100 hafnium and 100 dysprosium to make 200 ferrofluid. With the new reaction, you'll take 100 hafnium and 100 cadmium to make 1 unrefined ferrofluid, which can then be refined down to give 10 ferrofluid and 95 hafnium. The final ratios at the end of the process see you using 100 cadmium and 5 hafnium to create 10 ferrofluid, per cycle. The proportion of hafnium stays the same, but the amount of cadmium is 20 times the amount of dysprosium you'd normally use per unit, and it takes ten times longer to make 1000 units of ferrogel."

Now I see the unrefined ferrofluid reaction. I take it you put in 100 cadmium and 100 hafnium and output it to a silo for 1 unrefined ferrofluid. But what do you do to refine the unrefined ferrofluid? I see no listing of it being used for the regular ferrofluid. How do you process/refine unrefined ferrofluid? Or is this automatic and will you just use additional silos??

Bring it to an outpost and use the refinery facility to refine it.

What is the volume of 1 unit of unrefined ferrofluid?

1m3. Just refine it at a statiom, that's it?

Well I suppose that works, would have been nice if they'd mentioned that in the blog though. :P

Is there any loss/tax based on your character or does it have a 100% yield?

Best judgement (though, TBH, I haven't verified) is that since it does not fall under any of the ORE categories, it will use Scrapmetal processing to determine yield.

I've tried one of these unrefined fermionic condensates or similar, and it just refined to 9 units of the regular type without extra stuff for recycling.

Is it possible you lost one to tax/refine ineffeciancy?

Either way, it doesn't explain where the other stuff went...

well you probably mean unrefined FLUXED condensates
i was wondering if those where giving some extra raw material so you did not got some ?

as the text on alchemy was lacking lot of information as much of the new stuff ine ve anyway we will learn by trying

this part was supose to be it but was unclear for many of us:
"Currently it takes 100 hafnium and 100 dysprosium to make 200 ferrofluid. With the new reaction, you'll take 100 hafnium and 100 cadmium to make 1 unrefined ferrofluid, which can then be refined down to give 10 ferrofluid and 95 hafnium.
The four pairings are cadmium/dysprosium, vanadium/thulium, chromium/promethium and platinum/neodymium."

so which of the 6 new reactions give raw material back and which raw.. that is the question actualy
