The Power Plant is a building where you generate electricity to give speed boosts to other buildings.
Upgrading the power plant currently does nothing.
The power grid is where you place structures in order to generate and store energy.
You can place structures by selecting one from the list on the left of the screen, and then clicking an empty tile.
To delete a structure, click the filled tile while you have any structure selected from the list.
Structures can connect with each other without the use of pipes, but pipes can be used to use resources more efficiently at times.
This is where you spend your energy to speed up other buildings:
- Construction Firm: Reduces construction time for buildings.
- Factory: Speeds up shard refining, store reload, and machine speed.
The more energy you use, the longer and stronger the boost is.
You can boost multiple buildings at the same time, but selecting less makes the individual boosts better.
These are your structures for use in the power grid.
In the future you will unlock more by upgrading the Power Plant.
Provides infinite water.
Transports 1000L of gas or fluid per tick.
Currently used to move water from a water pump to a coal boiler, and to move steam from a coal boiler to a steam turbine.
The pipe is gray when empty, blue when filled with water, and white when filled with steam.
Adds +2000 power capacity.
Can be placed anywhere, and is not needed to be connected to anything.
Provides 2500kg of coal.
Needs to be placed next to a coal boiler.
Has to be replaced periodically, as it will run out of coal.
Turns water, and 4 kg of coal into 30L of steam.
Needs to be connected to a water pump and a coal chest to function.
Transforms 10L of steam into 30 power per tick.
Needs to be connected to an active coal boiler to generate energy.
