So, I really want those wonderful construction materials, but I can’t figure out how to harvest them effectively. I have the deadened & regeneration mutations, just fyi. While each resin pod only takes 10 minutes to deconstruct, you need a whole lot more than a couple to actually do anything. Most of these pods are on the second floor. The following issues vex me:
Stacking Climate control & rm13 doesn’t seem to have any effect. I’m not sure it’s any different than using only one at a time. I see ~260 on the character temp screen no matter what.
Thermal dissipation doesn’t seem to do anything whatsoever and it’s really expensive to run that for 10 mins.
The “furniture” that emits hot gasses breaks down into “scarred lumps” with a min_str of 250, which afaik is impossible to destroy in a reasonable amount of time. I’m assuming an explosive strong enough to damage that will probably destroy the resin pods. Reminder that on the 2nd floor vehicle ramming is explicitly impossible.
Has anyone actually tried using vehicle coolers? I know that’s been suggested but I doubt it’s viable, at least for harvesting pods. Resin floors impede vehicle movement, so you’d have to deploy foldable frame on the 2nd floor, install a cooler (fortunately this only takes one minute), and rig some sort of power system on it pretty quickly. You would have to repeat this several times since the resin pods are somewhat spread out (and again, you can’t move vehicles inside the tower at all). Not sure how you would even be able to supply enough power. That’s all assuming one cooler will be enough to do the trick. If someone really has done this I would love to hear how you went about it.
Very much curious to hear if anyone’s come up with a way of harvesting these resin pods. I might just try to rip them out with just the rm13 on, taking breaks in between.
