How much does Ice improve farms


#1

Is it worth buying ice for auto farms? If so by how much would it improve efficiency?


#2

At the current price for ice, I would say it isn’t worth it. It will speed up the movement speed of items, but as hoppers only transfer 3 items at a time, it would not be worth it for extremely large farms.

As a large farm owner myself, I would not recommend it because my hoppers get backed up. If I were to speed things up with ice, I don’t even want to imagine the backlog on those poor hoppers.


#3

The items have to get there eventually. Ice will speed up the transport but in the end, as long as you are producing the same amount of items, there won’t be any change in the production of the farm.


#4

The only thing I really see without ice is super large farms that might despawn the items. This is very unlikely tho.
