The Geothermal Generator is a power generator building that generates 100-600 MW of power when built on top of a Geyser. It requires no additional input

The power output of Geothermal Generators fluctuates and is affected by the purity of the Geyser.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The power output of a Geothermal Generator fluctuates between 0.5 and 1.5 times of its average power generation. The average generation is determined by the Geyser purity:

Purity Amount Power Average power
Impure 3 50-150 MW 100 MW
Normal 9 100-300 MW 200 MW
Pure 6 200-600 MW 400 MW
Total 18 2250-6750 MW 4500 MW

Geothermal Generators cannot be overclocked.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Geothermal Generators can be built on Geysers completely covered by Foundations. The Geyser's steam eruption however has to be visible above the foundation.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Most Geysers are concentrated in the northern part of the map.
  • Each Geyser shoots out hot steam about every 20 seconds. The pioneer is not damaged by this hot steam.
  • Geysers are the only resource node that do not produce any items or fluids.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Patch
    • Geothermal Generators no longer have priority over other generators
    • Geysers now have purity
    • The power output of Geothermal Generators is now dependent on Geyser purity and fluctuates
    • The Geothermal Generator GUI is now finished and functions properly
  • Unknown patch between Patch 0.3.7 and Patch Renamed from Geo Thermal Generator to Geothermal Generator
  • Patch Fixed a bug where some Geysers were still not usable
  • Patch Geothermal Generators should be buildable on Geysers again
  • Patch Updated and optimized the Geyser idle and burst VFX
  • Patch 0.3: Geysers now show just "Geyser" instead of "Geyser cannot be picked up! (Normal)" when approached
  • Patch Geyser placement issue in Desert Canyons resulting in ‘Floor is too steep’ when trying to build should be fixed
  • Patch 0.1.5: Changed build cost from 25 Cable, 4 Heavy Modular Frame, and 20 Rubber to 30 Cable, 8 Heavy Modular Frame, and 50 Rubber
  • Patch 0.1.10: Fixed an invalid Geyser
