Limestone Blocks are used in the construction of furniture and structures that are made of Limestone. Besides being the second most durable stone type after granite, limestone blocks have no practical advantage over other stone blocks.

Acquisition

Limestone blocks are cut from limestone chunks at a stonecutter's table. It takes 1,600 ticks (26.67 secs) of work to cut a chunk into 20 limestone blocks.

Analysis

Production strategy

This section is transcluded from Stonecutting maximization.

Stonecutting speed is controlled by the cutting pawn's General Labor Speed stat, which is determined by a pawn's stats and capacities rather than any skills. Thus, maximization is based on improving that stat and removing process inefficiencies rather than grinding for experience. General labor speed is decreased by manipulation, sight and Global Work Speed values below 100%, and increased by manipulation and Global Work Speed above 100%. Manipulation can be improved with bionic or archotech arms, or with drugs that improve Manipulation or Consciousness (as it directly affects Manipulation) such as Go-juice or Wake-up. Global work speed is only improved by certain traits, such as Industrious, and the drug Wake-up, which stacks with the drug's manipulation improvement. Care should be taken to avoid assigning stonecutting to pawns with damaged vision or manipulation or with traits such as Lazy unless they are otherwise unoccupied. Additionally, like many other production tasks, lack of light or excessive temperatures will negatively affect rates and up to two tool cabinets will improve rates.  

Using shelves placed directly adjacent to the crafting position will remove travel time to pick up new chunks for cutting, as described on that page, so long as:

  1. Sufficient haulers are present to bring chunks to them.
  2. The bill is set to drop the blocks on the ground.

If there are insufficient haulers, removing the shelves and instead positioning the cutting table next to the chunk stockpile is ideal.

Placing an armchair or other chair will not improve production rates, but will ensure that the pawn remains comfortable and happy while cutting.
