Does stone reappear?

I made a robot that's purpose is to cut down trees, and when their axe runs out they go to the nearest stick then pick it up and then the same process but with stones then makes a crude axe, but there are no stones left, iis there a way to fix this?

Wiki link to raw resources

I don't know if you've read the last message but i can tell you directly. As far as i know you could make the bot mine out the stone needed with a pickaxe (that it has to make or someone nedds to make for it) or it can simply use wooden axes. (If i'm wrong about the bots aren't yet able to do any of those sorry, I'm not quite that far into the game yet)

(1 edit)

Bots are able to make their own tools. What they cannot do is switch a workbench to making another product. So you'll need a dedicated workbench for each required tool.

Teach the bot to

  1. pick up one plank from one storage
  2. add it to the workbench
  3. pick up one pole from another storage
  4. add that to the workbench too
  5. find the produced tool

Advantage over prefabricating tools: No overhead.

Personally I find it sensible to produce overhead only on base products like planks, poles, metal. And even there I now stop producing them when my storage is close to full. The result is a tidier map.

Ohhh thanks, i get it now.

you can easy get stone by mining boulders or metal deposits(these grey tiles)
