Built in a Medium Construction Site.
- Smelt all known ores.
- Uses Petroleum for fuel.
To construct, place a Medium Construction Site at the desired location, then select Projects > Furnaces > Persephone Furnace.
It must be built 65 or more coordinates away from any other Persephone Furnace or Hades Furnace.
- If there is a Persephone Furnace or Hades Furnace up to 64 coordinates away, you will get a dialog box, "You must locate any water cooled furnace at least 64 coordinates from any other".
- Has to be 65 or more coords away in both north-south coordinate AND east-west coordinate
It must be built near a water source and away from a road
- If there is no water nearby, or if you construct too close to a road, you will get a dialog box, "Persephone Furnaces are cooled with water, and must be built near a natural source, and away from paths."
- A Water icon does not necessarily meet the requirements, and equally you can build where you don't get a water icon.
Note: Due to a bug in the code, until 23-AUG-2017 the dialog box was not working correctly, this has now been fixed. Silden 14:55, 23 August 2017 (EST)
To prevent attempting to circumvent the distance restriction by constructing two furnaces at the same time or by repositioning it after construction, every time you fire a Persephone Furnace or Hades Furnace a check is made for any furnaces nearby. If there is another furnace 64 coords or less away, ALL affected furnaces will display in the main channel Operating a water cooled furnace too close to another causes it to become unstable. It will not operate when attempting to fire it.
Burns 28 petrol per day (28 ticks per day)
|Ore Used||Petrol Used||Metal Yield||Time opened||Ore Cost/Metal||Metal per Fuel|

Lower Ore gives a proportional reduction in metal, but take the same amount of time. 2,000 ore using 28 petroleum yields 134 metal after 1 day.
20,000 Ore will increase metal in steps of 20.
