Extractors
"Nature is a treasure hoarder."
Extractors are a special class of Slime Science gadgets that are essential for building all other types of gadgets. Extractors include drills, pumps and apiaries.

Once placed on a build site, the extractor will begin working, collecting resources from the environment over time. Once it is full of resources, an extractor can be emptied. The best extractors can repeat this cycle multiple times before they finally break down.

Each extractor can find exclusive resources if used in the correct zone:
Pumps can find a special resource in the Dry Reef.
Drills can find a special resource in the Indigo Quarry.
Apiaries can find a special resource in the Moss Blanket.
All extractors can find special resources in the Glass Desert.

Information

Extractors are required to obtain resources needed to make other Slime Science gadgets. You can't move them, but you can destroy them if you need to.

Each extractor can last for a preset amount of cycles, depending on the tier it belongs to. Cycles behave like this: the extractor starts working, and after it's done it's ready to empty resources, signified by it "dancing". After it empties its resources, it either continues on to the next cycle or explodes, automatically removing itself.

There is currently no way to know how many cycles an extractor has left unless you memorized it.

All extractors have a placement limit of 6 for the same type at a time, meaning you can only have 6 Drills, 6 Pumps and 6 Apiaries at a time. Remember, the tier of the extractor doesn't matter, so you can have 3 Novice Drills and 3 Advanced Drills at a time.

There are currently four tiers of extractors fully implemented in the game.

Tips

  • When trying to aim for rare resources, don't place your extractors where you get an additional common resource (for example Indigonium), since that would make the resource pool bigger and lower your chances to obtain rare resources.
  • It is recommended to place your drills relatively close to teleporters that lead to the ranch or near the ranch as it allows quick and easy access. If no teleporters are nearby, you can always craft your own. Alternatively, a Refinery Link could also cut down on time.
