Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sparkpowder is likely meant to be analogous to the real life mineral potassium nitrate aka "saltpeter," a substance used in primitive food preservation as well as being a principle component in gunpowder.
  • Sparkpowder blueprints can no longer be spawned. If the "cheat giveitemnum 108 1 0 1" command is used there will only spawn one item of Sparkpowder. You MUST learn the engram to be able to make it.
