The Cracking Unit is a machine used for converting oil product ( Heavy Oil, Naphtha, Fuel Gas, and Diesel) each other. Some recipes create byproducts of Sour Water or Carbon Dioxide.

No recipe has an advantage on the quantity of heat. This means burning in Boiler (Gas) or Diesel Generator after cracking produces a similar or less amount of Steam Hi or Electricity as uncracked. On the other hand, cracking is useful in these cases:


It is notable that this machine is one of only a handful which can be unlocked by multiple researches: Biofuel or Naphtha Refining.
