Total Base Ingredients
The Geo Thermal Generator is a building that generates 200 MW of Power; you can only build it on a Geyser node. As of Update 3, it is unlocked in the MAM under Caterium as one of the last two research nodes.
The power from the Geo Thermal Generators has priority over all other power generation. Suppose you have three Geo Thermal Generators for 600 MW, and extra power from Biomass Burners, Coal Generators and/or Fuel Generators. If your total power usage is below 600 MW, then only the Geo Thermal Generators will be providing power, the other power generators are dormant and do not consume any fuel. This makes the Geo Thermal Generators highly desirable, and you will want to connect them into your main power grid for maximum efficiency.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- You cannot build the Geo Thermal Generator on a geyser node which is completely covered by Foundations. If you build Foundations at the geyser node, make sure the node's 'ring' is at least visible on the surface.
- Only 18 geyser nodes are known to exist. The UI for the Geo Thermal Generator is a work in progress, and it cannot be overclocked in the current version. These 18 geysers result in a potential power production of 3.6 GW.
History[edit | edit source]
- Patch 0.1.5 (experimental): Changed crafting costs from 25 Cable, 4 Heavy Modular Frame, and 20 Rubber to 30 Cable, 8 Heavy Modular Frame, and 50 Rubber
