The FICSIT Particle Accelerator uses electromagnetic fields to propel particles to very high speeds and energies. The specific design allows for a variety of processes, such as matter generation and conversion.
Warning: Power usage is extremely high, unstable, and varies per recipe.

The Particle Accelerator is a building used to craft advanced late-game recipes. Unlike other production buildings, its power consumption fluctuates and varies per selected recipe. The least power is consumed at the beginning of a crafting cycle, and it increases to the maximum throughout the duration of the crafting cycle.

Main article: Clock speed

The Particle Accelerator can be overclocked using Power Shards. Overclocking increases the input/output speed of the Particle Accelerator at the cost of greatly increased power demand proportional to output.


  • Given the massive power consumption of the Particle Accelerator, it is highly advisable to build more of them and underclock each, if there is enough space and materials to do so. For example, building twice as many and underclocking all to 50% reduces total power consumption by roughly 33%, as well as allowing them to run at different intervals.
  • As the collision box of the building is a solid cuboid, most other buildings cannot be built through the empty spaces of it, except Railways and similar.
