Running out of Gas in Town Star? Confused on what it takes to product Gas and a sustainable economy? You’ve found the right Guide. Gasoline production in Town Star requires a handful of different buildings; a Refinery (to refine the raw harvested materials), an oil pump, an energy source (either windmill, power plant, or nuclear plant,) and a water facility. Additionally, you need a warehouse to store your energy, and a worker house (industrial worker) to fetch the oil & energy and deliver it to the warehouse. The crude oil is refined into petroleum and then petroleum is refined into gasoline.
In this guide we will teach you how to produce Gasoline so you can sub-stain a growing economy throughout the week.
Before you begin producing Gasoline, you have to have a reliable income. Typically it’s best to plan to begin producing Gas when you hit the 20 Gas marker it is time to build your Gasoline operation. Note: that you will not be able to sustain the cost of wages beyond this point unless you are producing higher tier goods like for example Flour, Sugar, Eggs or Wool.
It is not sustainable to produce Gas to only sell Wood, Wheat, Sugarcane or any of the base goods.
To make Gasoline, you will need the following buildings:
- Refinery (and the Paved Road req. to build it) – $15,000
- Wind Turbine (to produce energy) – $2,500
- Oil Pump (to produce crude oil) – $2,500
- Water Facility (to produce water drums) – $10,000
- Industrial Worker (to harvest the crude oil and energy) – $2,500
- Fuel Storage (to store the crude oil and gasoline; every Town comes with this base building)
- Warehouse (to store the energy and crude oil) – $10,000
The Town Star Gasoline Production Process
Be very conservative with your Gasoline in the beginning. You will run out much faster than you think. Therefore, it is important to make the most out of every tank of gas – try only to sell higher value items like Flour, Sugar or Salt, Eggs or Wool.
Start off by building (1) Worker House. Next lay down a Water Facility. Once this building is complete, lay down (1) Wind Turbine followed by (1) Oil Pump. Before these two buildings are complete you need to lay down a Warehouse for your energy to be stored. Next build a paved road and lay down your Refinery.
Your Industrial Worker will fetch Crude Oil from the Oil Pump, and store it in the Fuel Storage. He will also fetch Energy from the Wind Turbine, and store it in the Warehouse.
The Water Facility fetches Water from Wells to make Water Drums, and stores them in the Warehouse.
The refinery makes Petroleum (2 Crude Oil, 2 Energy, 1 Water Drum). You then refine it into Gasoline (1 Petroleum, 2 Water Drums, 6 Energy) using the same building. The refinery worker will fetch all of these ingredients himself. It’s also important to note that the farther you place the Warehouse from the Refinery, the longer it will take to fetch the necessary ingredients.
Remember that most of these buildings will cause Pollution around them, affecting crops and animal farms severely. Place the buildings somewhere out of the way to avoid this.
