Uses[edit | edit source]

The following atmospheric Resources can be gathered using the Atmospheric Condenser, with differing rates per planet:

  • Power Consumption Rate: 6 Units/s

Atmospheric Condensers run until all available storage slots on a platform are filled. If a condenser is placed on a Icon Large Platform A.png Large Platform A, then a single nugget of gas will be produced. At most the condenser may produce up to 289 canisters using an Icon Platforms.png Extra Large Platform C, the condenser, and three Icon Large Storage.png Large Storage, each with with 4 Icon Medium Storage.png Medium Storage Silo. This setup is good for players that wish to collect rarer gases, such as Icon Helium.png Helium from Icon Atrox.png Atrox, while exploring and can come back to more than enough gas.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to 0.10.1.0, the Atmospheric Condenser, previously known as the Fuel Condenser, synthesized Hydrazine from the atmosphere of the planet, at the cost of a large amount of constant power usage and lots of time.
  • When not in use, the Atmospheric Condenser can be switched to a gas with an insufficient concentration to prevent it from making noise.
  • The Atmospheric Condenser will stop running if it runs out of Attachment Slots to place gas canisters.
  • You can place the Atmospheric Condenser in a Large Shuttle with power and storage and travel around different planets to collect gases.
  • The amount of power required to collect gas increases dramatically at lower PPU ratings; it only costs 33% more power to collect at 75PPU compared to 100PPU, but it costs 100% more power to collect at 25PPU compared to 50PPU.
