Concrete

Concrete is made by building Concrete Extractors on regolith deposits found all over the Martian surface. It is a basic building material and is used in a wide range of building types.

Background Edit

On Mars, water is a rare and difficult to obtain commodity. As such, turning the Martian regolith into traditional, water-based concrete was deemed impractical early on during the planning stages. Luckily, Mars is rich in another element with which a different type of concrete can be made - sulfur.

Sulfur-based, waterless concrete is literally the foundation for every aspiring Martian city. Concrete Extractors placed on spots rich in sulfur in the Martian soil dig up the sulfur-rich regolith and store it as a ready to use mix. It is later transported and heated by the drones on construction sites, turning it into strong and enduring concrete.
