Survival Guide - Dust Settles: Recycling
Your camp will get to points throughout the game where your current tech
level or strategy makes many of the weapons,
and defensive structures in storage
or otherwise distributed around your camp useless. Sometimes, selling these
items on the Trade Market or aiding
an alliance member is not the answer.
Instead you can turn those old, useless structures and items into building
You can access your recycling options by clicking the link on your left
control panel. This link will remain inactive until you have at least 1
active recycling plant. If at any point all
of your recycling plants are unstaffed,
then this link will blank out again.
When you get to a point that you are ready to recycle some of your currently
unneeded weapons, vehicles,
choppers, or defensive
structures, you will use the tools on your Recycling page to recycle those
items into building supplies. On this
page, you will find three sets of recycling options. The top option is for recycling
your buses. The middle set is for recycling weapons, other vehicles, and choppers.
The third set is for recycling defensive structures. You will type in the number
of items that you want to recycle in the appropriate text box and select which
item you want to recycle from the drop-down box, if appropriate. For the items
in the drop-down boxes, the quantity of each item that you have will be listed
beside the name of the item as well as the number of building supplies that
you will get once the items are recycled. Once you've made the appropriate selections
you will click "now" to have the items recycled immediately.
The main limitation you will have when using this feature is the number of
items that you have. You can only recycle what you have in your camp, no more.
Also when you recycle something, it happens immediately, so if you don't have
enough space in your storage huts for the building
supplies, they will be disposed of when you end
your turn. Finally, this action is irreversible, so if you decide to click
"now" you are stuck with that decision.
