Creosote Oil (Liquid)

└ Module: Core


In order to preserve Wooden Ties against rot and decay, we need to coat them with Creosote Oil. The particular properties of this oil derived from Coal or Wood helps to waterproof and protect wood against many forms of insects and bacteria that would otherwise destroy it in short order.

Creosote Oil is obtained by cooking Coal or Wood in a Coke Oven. It is basically a free byproduct of the process, but you will need multiple Ovens to produce it in quantity. Coal produces 500 mB; Wood produces 250 mB.

Creosote Oil can be drained into Buckets or Bottles. If you have Forestry installed, it can be placed in Cans and Capsules as well.
