For Captain of Industry players, this guide is a soil test, which will show you how far various soil types spread when dumped
Description of my soil test
I wanted to know how far various types of soil would spread when dumped in a pile. I tested all available soil to me in my game.
Without wait, here are the test results from a height of 5:
I’m not surprised by the results, this seems very realistic, much like other features of this game.
We could use this knowledge to create a “wall” of rock or slag before dumping waste in the ocean.
I also noticed that when digging the results are very similar. It’s harder to test this because when digging you can’t guarantee to get a single type of soil. For example, when digging into Coal/Iron/Copper we usually get some dirt/rock/gravel, and there could be a top level of dirt as well. So results may vary.
However, if the soil is mostly Coal/Iron/Copper or even Rock, I may not bother with retaining wall as using them (especially staggered every 5 levels) will result in taking much more space.
That’s all we are sharing today in Captain of Industry How Far Soil Spread When Dumped, if you have anything to add, please feel free to leave a comment below, you can also read the original article here, all the credits goes to the original author Undying29
