Infrastructure

From Surviving Mars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Infrastructure carries the lifeblood of your colony and is the first step towards human habitation. Drones lay down pipes and cables to transport resources to sustain your colony and maintaining the network is crucial to the survival of your colonists, buildings, and the colony.

Resources[edit | edit source]

Exploitation and manufacture of supplies constitutes the bulk of your infrastructure. Resources are either gathered directly from Mars, or later manufactured in resource production buildings - most commonly from other resources. They keep the Colony operational by being used for life-support, construction and building upkeep.

There are two types of resources; grid and non-grid. Grid resources use Pipes and Cables for distribution, while non-grid resources have to be moved around with Drones or RC Rovers.

List[edit | edit source]

Grid[edit | edit source]

Power.png Power 
Electrical power is used by nearly every structure you may build. Power usage can be reduced or removed and power generation can be increased, through research.
Water.png Water 
Acquired through vaporizators and underground deposits, one of the most important basic resources.
Oxygen.png Oxygen 
Necessary for your people to breathe. Produced by farms and MOXIEs.

The following is an advanced resource.

Fuel.png Fuel 
Used to refuel rockets and manufacture polymers.

Non-grid[edit | edit source]

The following are basic resources, used as resources for the manufacture of advanced resources or as basis for most buildings.

Concrete.png Concrete 
Primary building material. Ubiquitous utility.
Metal.png Metals 
Second base building material, also used to manufacture machine parts.
RareMetals.png Rare Metals 
Export good and resource for making electronics.
Food.png Food 
Used to keep your colonists alive.

The following are advanced resources, imported or manufactured in Martian factories:

Electronics.png Electronics 
Advanced maintenance and building material, necessary for all the advanced buildings.
Polymeres.png Polymers 
Essential material for the creation of domes and other advanced buildings.
MachineParts.png Mechanical Parts 
Used to build and maintain extractors, factories.
