Hydrogenation (tmp): When LITH touches WATR.png SLTW.png DSTW.png BUBW.png or WTRV.png its hydrogenation factor increases by 1 for each water particle.

If the lithium particle is above 166.85C it will explode. Otherwise it will convert water particles into HYGN and heat up. The reactions and heat produced will be more violent when lithium is charged up with electricity.

The Hydrogenation factor is stored in the .tmp property.

Carbonation (tmp2): When LITH touches CO2.png its carbonation factor increases by 1 for each CO2 particle that gets absorbed. The carbonation factor is stored in the .tmp2 property

Lithium ion batteries: When lithium is pure enough (hydrogenation factor + carbonation factor < 5) it can be used as a chargeable battery.

Lithium is charged by sparked PSCN.png. To discharge lithium it needs to come in contact with NSCN.png.

The charge value is stored in the .ctype property, and is shared among nearby LITH particles.

Lithium can be overcharged when it reaches .ctype of 100. The explosion will propagate through all neighboring highly-charged lithium particles.

Impurity: Lithium impurity is determined by the sum of hydrogenation and carbonation factors.

When impurity reaches the maximum value of 10 it will stop reacting with CO2 and water particles (unless its already burning).

Explosion: While in its explosion phase, LITH will start a countdown timer and release FIRE particles. If LITH comes into contact with OXYG in this state, it will turn the OXYG and itself into PLSM, and create some pressure. When the explosion timer finishes, it will turn into LAVA. If the carbonation factor is greater than 3, it will turn into molten GLAS, rather than molten LITH.

LITH will also explode if it comes into contact with FIRE while it's temperature is greater than 166.85C and it's hydrogenation value is less than 6.


ACID will turn LITH into HYGN, rather than destroying it.

PHOT will change wavelengths when bouncing off LITH, with varying wavelengths depening on LITH's charge level.
