Requires Chemistry Recipe - Explosives
- Volatile Explosives require 50 Gunpowder, 10 Aluminum Powder and 2 Set's Compound Extract. Volatile explosives can detonate while running or warping or using the chariot. The only safe way to transport volatile explosives is to set Emote - Gait: Walking.
- Low Explosives require 50 Gunpowder, 10 Aluminum Powder and 2 Osiris's Compound Extract. Low explosives require an Explosives Handling skill of 3 or more.
- High Explosives require 50 Gunpowder, 10 Aluminum Powder and 2 Thoth's Compound Extract
Explosives are made in an upgraded chemistry lab. It does not need to have a macerator or an alcohol lamp, but it needs to have all glassware installed. It is recommended to make some q1 glassware to use for making explosives. It is a good idea to build a separate compound for an explosives chemistry lab. While a player tries to create explosives, mishaps will happen, causing damage to the lab and the surrounding area. It is a good idea to have a high Structure Repair skill when trying to make explosives. Unsuccessfully repairing a building starts a 60 seconds timer.
Making explosives starts a constitution timer. (82 seconds at con 3)
Volatile explosive detonations (not to an expo site) cause a detonation in an 15x15 grid, centered on the location of detonation.
Repairing an expedition site (and presumably chariot) takes the following materials:
N * 222 Bricks N * 120 Boards N * 115 Rope N * 55 Canvas N * 13 Cut Stone N * 7 Cable
It's currently unknown how N is calculated, but seems to be a non-linear function of the amount of explosives used to blow up the expedition site.
The first time a player tries to make some volatile explosives in a chemistry lab, he or she gets the explosives handling skill.
"Volatile explosives" can be made by anyone. "Low explosives" requires explosives handling 3 to make. "High explosives" requires explosives handling 5 to make.
These numbers are from a chem lab without any calibration, just low q glassware.
At handling 1 and 2, 1 volatile explosive is made on success. At handling 3, 2 volatile explosives are made on success. At handling 4, 2 low or volatile explosives on success. At handling 5, 2 high or low or volatile explosives on success. At handling 6, 3 high or low or volatile explosives on success. At handling 7, 3 high or low or volatile explosives on success. At handling 8, 4 high or low or volatile explosives on success. At handling 9, 4 high or low or volatile explosives on success.
In a Detonation Box:
100 Medium Stones + 100 High Explosives = +1000 Gravel scattered over a very wide area. There might have been more I just didn't find them. 100 Medium Stones + 100 Low Explosives = 2500 Gravel stays in the box. 100 Medium Stones + 100 Volatile Explosives = +2500 Gravel scattered in 6-200+ piles over a wide area.
- can use a minimum of 40 explosives for a proportional amount of gravel/medium stones
