Steam Core is one of the Resources in Frostpunk. Certain buildings require a steam core to operate, usually required in buildings that utilize heavy machinery such as Coal Mine, Wall Drill or a building that must maintain temperature such as a Hothouse. It is also the core component in the construction of Automatons.
Acquisition[edit | edit source]
Steam Core is the only item in the game that the player cannot create, but must be found from scouting. Typically they are found by exploring nodes, but if you set up an Outpost in Tesla City in A New Home, you can receive 1 Steam Core per day.
Destroyed Steam Core Transport[edit | edit source]
In The Refugees, your starting crater has two Destroyed Steam Core Transports that can each be harvested for 2 Steam Cores.
Notes[edit | edit source]
In some scenarios it may be advantageous to conserve cores by using several Hunters Huts or Hangars in place of Hothouses.
