v0.34:Gypsum plaster

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.

Gypsum plaster powder is produced at a kiln or magma kiln from gypsum, alabaster, selenite, or satinspar (but not anhydrite) and an empty bag. The production of gypsum plaster powder requires the Furnace operating skill. It is used in the production of plaster casts, an item used by bone doctors to immobilize the broken bones of injured dwarves.

No stockpile options exist for controlling the storage of gypsum plaster - it is listed under the "Stone/Clay" material groups for Furniture, Blocks, and Finished Goods, but these settings have no effect because such objects will never actually be made of gypsum plaster; gypsum plaster bags are always stockpiled as if they are empty.

Bags of plaster powder are automatically stored in containers located in hospital zones, provided there is room.

At a kiln, if the option to produce it is unavailable despite meeting all requirements, the command "make plaster powder" in the manager menu should be used.
