However, raw flux decays rapidly into inert flux and must be stabilized at a chemistry station if it is to be used for crafting. One exception to this is that raw yellowcake flux is used for crafting orbital strike beacons.
Flux is acquired by harvesting the mutated flora in nuked zones. Raw yellowcake flux is specifically collected by harvesting the mutated variants of the following flora:
|Ash rose||Rad rose|
|Bleach dogwood||Gamma dogwood|
|Soot flower||Geiger blossom|
|Wild melon blossom||Megaton melon blossom|
Raw yellowcake flux can be attained easily by launching a nuke in any biome containing one of these floras.
Mutated variants of the flora will have slight name and color changes to indicate the mutation. With exceptions; Gamma dogwood is blue in appearance and produces yellowcake flux. The geiger blossom is orange and green.
