I built a Steamwork (yay!). But whenever I turn it on, there's nothing surplus in any of my production lines (and a consume in Coal). So, what's this supposed to do?

1 Answer 1


The Question from your Title: The Magneto Boost Ratio boost the boost of the Magneto. The Magneto boost the Global Production by 2% per building and a Steamwork boosts this effect by 15%.

But the Steamwork can more!

With different Upgrade it can produce things like Manuscript. A Full list is here

  • So, if I have the Steamwork working without any upgrade or Magneto, I'm just wasting Coal, right?

    @Braiam Exactly. Steamworks are only useful when you get one of the upgrades to make them actually do anything. Commented Sep 17, 2014 at 15:13
