More Uses for Fuel

Posted November 22 2015 - 15:32
I have so much fuel right now, it's not even funny, and I'm sure that other towns are feeling it right now. For the longest time, I've had a couple ideas for more uses for fuel so that we can cut down on our excess. one of my ideas deals with heaters - sometimes, there's not enough wood, and people start dying left and right even though there's fifty tonnes of highly flammable fuel refined just for burning in town. There are oil, gas, diesel, and gasoline heaters and stoves that campers like to use that should be acknowledged in the game.

Because stoves and heaters aren't being produced anymore in the post-apocalypse, they're a limited commodity. Only a third or a quarter of the wood requirement can be substituted for fuel because not everyone has a heater. The amount of fuel used will be scaled to the production or the stockpile, depending on whether or not there will be fuel left by the end of winter.
