If you want, you can tally up yours too. It's fun to see what elements you really use most. I was shocked to see that metal appeared in every single upload I went through. I was also shocked to discover I had actually used snow too, if only for show. I was also shocked that I used more wood than steam. I think it was mostly intertwine though. c:
I plan to tally up the rest, take it as parts out of 39000, and upload it. (the other 1000 is for a text explanation)

Intertwine makes only 59% of pump's dot count. Still a hefty amount though. ikr I guess I should try using more mercury. Surprising that the elements we think are commonly used really aren't commonly used. Like Mercury. Useful stuff, but not very much actually used. I think I'll tally up Cod's use of metal. That'll be fun.
The reason the dots you expect for mercury don't show up don't is because you really only need 1-5 dots for each logical processor. Obviously most tech uploads have more than one logical processor, because tons of them are combined to make one large processor. But my point still stands. You'll end up using a lot more fuse than mercury because it takes multiple dots of fuse to hold up and release just one dot of mercury.

It's because no one on this frontier uploads. Elmach mainly, but also Elcor and MF. It's an interesting branch but hardly anyone goes there. Just because it hasn't been made known to the public doesn't mean it's good. Herpderp Maybe I should make a bird upload
I'll count all of the elements I've used in all of my GOOD uploads (not the second page, because those suck) after my next upload, which will be some kind of really cool fighter arena with a complicated tech system incorporated somewhere in there.
