Tips[]

  • In contradiction to its description Compacted Coal is not actually a more efficient fuel source for Coal Generators when considering net power. Since at 100% clock speed it takes 180MJ for an Assembler to make 5 compacted coal the net energy of one compacted coal is actually 594MJ. Compared to using 2 Coal, which are worth a total of 600MJ, using 1 Coal + 1 Sulfur actually results in less net power. This can be counteracted by using Assemblers underclocked to 73.7957% or less.

History[]

  • Patch 0.3: Fuel value re-balance from 600 to 630MJ, also nerfed the conversion from 150% to 100% which reduced the maximum production by 33%.
