Cooking[]

Sodium is not used as an ingredient for cooking using a Nutrient Processor.


Additional information[]

  • A Portable Refiner can be used to change Sodium into Sodium Nitrate
  • Note that Sodium Nitrate is 6x better at charging technologies, requiring only 2 sodium to be put in a refiner. This gives you an effective 3x boost to the time you can stay exposed.
  • The flower models from which Sodium is harvested used to be sources of Zinc before the NEXT update.
  • Sodium-rich plants can be found by themselves or, rarely, in large groups. Same as with Oxygen-rich plants.
