## Compression Edit

### Machines Edit

There is a total of 5 machines to the Compression Branch:

- Extractor
- Refinery
- Compressor (called caster)
- Basic Ammunition Crafter (called ammunition crafter)
- Turret (called turd)

### Statistics Edit

- The
*Extractor*produces 3*Crude Ferrum*per second when placed on top of a*Ferrum Crystal* - The
*Refinery*requires 1*Crude Ferrum*per second and produces 1*Pure Ferrum*per second - One*Extractor*can support up to 3*Refineries* - The
*Compressor*requires 6*Pure Ferrum*per second and gives the player 1*Ferrum Brick*- Six*Refineries*are required for optimal output - The
*Basic Ammunition Crafter*requires 1*Pure Ferrum*per second and produces 4*Basic Ammunition* - The
*Turret*requires 4*Basic Ammunition*to shoot at an optimal rate of 4 BPS*Note: Each machine's requirements have a set amount of input and output per second, it cannot function faster than its optimal output and input rates*
