Red Science quantity

Hi all, I fail to understand how this production vs consumption actually works. For the Adamantine drill to operate it requires 3 red science, but having 5 buildings supplying 1 each is not enough. Consumption shows 7.5 and the 5 red science only provides 2.4 (???), what is consuming it? Why is the 5 red science not enough?

Thank you in advance!


Those are rates. I haven’t built the drill yet - but I’m guessing it probably consumes Red Science faster than your 5 Reds can produce it? Red is slow to produce.

Red is produced at a rate of 1 every 160s (2m40s) but the drill requires 3 reds every 24s, so you’ll need approximately 20 red labs for the drill to operate smoothly. Notice that time under the “>” symbol on every building, it will give you a clue as to how fast or slow the resources are produced. As for the rate that is written in “production overview” tab it is the rate per minute.

Thank you for your replies, I will keep on adding red science till it runs smooth and see if I reach 20. Hectic to be honest.
