Overwhelming amount of soil

Recommended Posts

So I've been wondering - what do you do when you have too much "regular resources" (compound, resin, ammonium,...) and there's no point in using the centrifuges to produce anything.
On the other hand, "burnt" soil is wasted resources.

Is there any good way to not waste soil which is practical?
At the moment I'm just making lots of ammonium or build huge pillars just to not waste it, but that's really not practical in the longer run.
Another thing is just making stuff for shredding, but again, up to a limit.

Do you even bother with not wasting a lot of resources or just let it burn?

You could turn it into resources and research them.

You can put the soil in centrifuge and make resin, then make medium storages and then scrap them.
1 storage gives you half of scrap, which means that you get 1 scrap for each soil canister.
Pretty effective way to get scrap if you ask me, although a bit time consuming.

You can get 1.5 scrap per -canister of soil if you turn your soil into drills instead.  You have to smelt the clay, but if you're just standing around your base scrapping stuff, what else have you got to do anyway ;)

2 soil = 6 Clay = 6 Ceramic = 6 Drill Mod 1's = 3 scrap

....and it gets better....

2 Hematite = 2 Iron = 1 Medium Shredder = ...I don't remember... 2 Scrap?

...Anyway, hematite is ALL OVER Glacio so this is a great method.
