Description
Extract additional steel from rock chunks!

A simple mod that helps you with your steel supply without changing the whole gameplay.

Works with already existing save files!

---------

+ You can now select "Smelt metal from debris" at the electric smelter to get
10x steel from 1x rock chunk (of any kind) (you need a crafting skill of at least 5 to do this).

---------

So if you have no supply of steel anymore, not even slags, you will now be able to choose whether you need stone bricks or not. If not, go and melt them to make huge amounts of steel. If yes, you can cut them and still get some steel.

No more waiting for random events to bring you only a hand full of steel, finally you can be independent! :D

In a normal scenario with a big map and mountains you won't need this mod, but when you try new scenarios this mod will come in very handy, especially in the late game

---------

The "Lite" Version will not longer be updated because the steel slag brings now 20 steel by default and debris has enough other uses to make it valuable and this mod not overpowered anymore.

---------

If you need even more steel (or less) you can edit the mod files.
Just go to the folder where steam downloads the workshop mods for Rimworld.
Usually the harddrive where you installed RimWorld and search for my mod in the steam folder:
steamapps/workshop/content/294100/731997183

There you will find two folders, "About" and "Defs"
Go to Defs/RecipeDefs and open the .xml using a text editor.
Then search for
<Steel>10</Steel>
where you can change the amount of steel you get for melting normal rocks.

This Natalo77 guy goes to EVERY SINGLE MOD I have ever seen and says the same thing: "Any hard incompatibilities?"

@Tobe_Continued 1.0 seems compatible with B19

Hi ! Can you upload a B19 version on steam workshop ? For streamer's let's play and for facilitate its installation by the community.

Nevermind, 1.0 version appears to work just fine with B19

Is the B19 version available somewhere?

Hi, Love your mod. Plans for 1.0?

Hello! I wanted to first say thank you for the mod! It has been quite a lovely addition to my game when using it alongside a mod such as quarry!

Though I did run into a little problem while running the mod alongside [TWC]Cupro's stones https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1474544546 . Steel extraction doesn't recognize the chunks generated from the additional stone types as viable debris for smelting. So I was wondering if it would be at all possible to add support for the stone chunks generated by the mod. Otherwise, Thank you for your time, and thank you again for the lovely mod!
