    Right now (build 360) meteoric iron and white iron are both using tungsten in their recipes, but bronze and constantan are not using zinc.

    Isn't Bronze using Tin on copper?

    Bronze and Constantan each use 2x tin or nickel, whereas meteoric iron and white iron use 1x tin or nickel and 1x tungsten.

    @Attenwood This should be an easy fix and makes a pretty big impact on smelting. I understand it might not make it the initial R30 build, but I'd appreciate if you submit it. I can provide any details needed.

    I wonder why we need the real seldom zinc and tungsten as often as tin and nickel. So now we will have A overhead of nickel and tin. The change now just looks like "ahh we need a job for tungsten"

    It is a bit strange, but people have been complaining for a long time that zinc and tungsten don't have a purpose. If they just got removed, it would annoy miners(at least they can vendor them now). Tungsten and zinc are no more rare than tin or nickel.

    I expect this is going to result in a cost decrease for tin and nickel add will add a cost increase for zinc and tungsten.
