As the foundation of all Eden Initiative cities, Basalt Extractions produce the necessary Granules required to produce Building Modules with the assistance of a Smelter. This often overlooked resource is critical for housing, ship construction, and city development. This resource extractor takes up a modestly larger area for the fields than the Tycoon variant, but has the advantage of being very ecologically friendly.

While not as visibly identified as Mined resources, islands do have a limit on how much basalt can be harvested. In some rare cases, islands may be completely devoid of the resource. This can be viewed with the extended resource pane by clicking on the '>>' symbol in the upper left corner next to the fertility display. This limit tends to be very high, however, so it is unlikely to be depleted before resourcing technologies become available to extend the supply.

One Basalt Extraction plant is best paired with a single Smelter for optimal production.

based on ZachShneider designs, i just made it more extreme. It does work, but will break down a lot and E.V.E will let you know, sounding unsettling like Navi from Zelda
