The Chemical plant is the part of the ECS Chemical Vector II.

Cargoes

Accepting

The Chemical plant accepts Refined products, Sulphur and Potash if defined.

The Chemical plant does not accept any cargo during first 93 days of life if built in game.

Cargo acceptance is limited by storage capacity. If the stockpile is in overflow, the industry stops accepting cargo until the stockpile is down to 75% of capacity, at which point the industry will start accepting cargo again.

Acceptance limit can be disabled with parameter of ECS Chemical Vector II

Production

The Chemical plant produces Dyes and Fertiliser.

The Chemical plant does not produce any cargo during first 93 days of life if built in game.

The Chemical plant uses 6 production levels.

Calculations

To calculate a month production values should be summarized for all the cycles of the month (usually 8 or 9). The following calculations are given for one production cycle.

The base values are 16 for Refined products and 8 for Sulphur and Potash (R0, R1 and R2). Base values are multiplied by the level based multiplier. The result is decreased if amount of corresponding cargo waiting is less, than the calculated values (R0, R1 and R2). Values RC and RD are % of cargo transported last month.

In case RC + RD = 0 the following calculation happens R3 = R0 / 2 and R4 = R0 /2 and in case if not R3 = R0 * RC / (RC + RD) / 2 and R4 = R0 * RD / (RC + RD) / 2.

Then effectiveness factors are applied R4 = R4 * 85%, R3 = R3 * 85% + R4 * 5%.

Then processing of Sulphur and Potash is calculated as R4 = R4 + R1 * 90% + R2 * 90%.

Level Multiplier
Very low 1
Low 2
Normal 4
High 9
Very high 19
Ultimate 41

Resulting values R0, R1 and R2 are amounts of Refined products, Sulphur and Potash processed, and R3 and R4 are amounts of Dyes and Fertiliser produced.

Production change

Production change happens on the 1-st day of every month.

The Chemical plant does not change production level during first 93 days of life if built in game.

On the lowest production level (Very low) advanced closure mechanism is applied with the following protection conditions:

  • last one on the map
  • younger than 5 years for industries, built in SE (scenario editor) or during map generation, younger than 2 years for others
  • amount of Refined products + Sulphur + Potash > 1024

Protection can be changed with parameter of ECS Chemical Vector II to the following protection conditions:

  • last one on the map
  • younger than 5 years for industries, built in SE (scenario editor) or during map generation, younger than 2 years for others
  • amount of Refined products + Sulphur + Potash > 1
  • transportation level > 1%
  • Chemical plant is built by the player during game play

Changing production level is calculated by comparing the sum of Refined products + Sulphur + Potash waiting with the value shown in the table.

The industry can increase production level by one, and decrease it to any level.

Level
Decrease
Increase
Very low 216
Low 144 432
Normal 288 864
High 648 1944
Very high 1368 4104
Ultimate 2952

Level increasing on Normal level and above happens only if dyes or fertiliser transportation level is > 50%

Attention! If the industry is inside a town zone 0, it always generates a "decrease production" event.

Construction

The Chemical plant has one of 8 possible layouts. New layouts are welcome (:biggrin:)

The Chemical plant has low probability (2) to be built by map generator and low probability (2) to be built during game play.

The Chemical plant can be built by a player both in a game and in the scenario editor. Construction cost factor is 176. Construction conditions are represented in the table.

When built by the player during a game, the Chemical plant will be in company colours of the builder. When generated by the game or built while in the scenario editor, the Chemical plant will pick up the colour randomly.
