Brass smeltery turns Zinc zinc and Copper copper into Brass brass, an intermediate product in production of a few important goods. It can be built only in the Old World.

Productivity

It takes 60 seconds to produce 1 ton of brass from 1 ton of zinc and 1 ton of copper so the production rate is 1 ton of brass per minute. Productivity can be changed by adjusting working conditions, using items and electricity.

Brass usage and production chains

Brass is required to produce a few important goods such as Glasses glasses, Steam motors steam motors and Gramophone gramophones.

Brass can be used during expeditions, it grants 15 bonus points to crafting skill per 50 tons. It can be sold for 400 coins, or purchased for 1000 coins per ton (by passive trading).

All production chains involving brass are listed below.
