The tree tap is the easiest way to begin obtaining polymer starting materials. It can be placed on any wood block and will begin generating bags of polyisoprene pellets. Each tree tap works like a hopper and has five slots that can be filled with bags of polyisoprene pellets. If a tap is placed directly above an existing tree tap, it will funnel the polymer bags into the lower tree tap, allowing the player to build a series of tree taps on a wooden poll as high as desired and harvest only from the lowest one. If a chest is placed under the lowest tree tap the polymer bags will funnel into it, similarly to the way a hopper works. Once 64 bags of polymer isoprene pellets have accumulated, they are automatically combined to make one sack of isoprene pellets. Sixty-four sacks of isoprene pellets automatically get converted into one keg of isoprene pellets. These higher capacity containers can be placed on a crafting table to break them back down smaller containers.
