Power Pole

From Satisfactory Wiki
(Redirected from Power Pole MK2)
Jump to: navigation, search

Power Poles are small towers or attachments that can be used to extend the range of Power Lines and to transfer power from buildings that produce power to buildings that consume it. Ground Power Poles can be placed on regular ground but will also snap to foundations. Wall Power Poles are unlocked through the AWESOME Shop and can be only placed on walls.

Higher marks of Power Poles are unlocked in the Caterium Research tree. After a ground Power Pole is researched, the corresponding Wall Power Pole is made available for purchase in the AWESOME Shop.

Each Power Pole can handle an unlimited amount of power passing through it. Power Poles can be linked together with a Power Line for up to 100 meters apart. It is recommended to leave at least one spare connection on each Pole for lines coming from and going to other poles.

Marks[edit | edit source]

There are currently 3 marks of Power Poles available, distinguished by ingredients, connections, and height.

Construction[edit | edit source]

  • While constructing Power Lines and the 2nd target is not a building, an additional Power Pole will be automatically placed on the cursor's location, as displayed by the hologram.
  • Power Poles can be upgraded in-place just like Conveyors and Miners.
  • Both sides of Double-Sided Wall Outlets are connected internally. The amount of connections is per side, not in total. However, it is possible to connect both sides with a Power Line, reducing the amount of available connections by 1 on each connector (as it cannot be easily removed, the wall the outlet it is attached to has to be dismantled first)

History[edit | edit source]

  • Patch 0.3.4.16: Fixed the Hebrew translations on Power Poles
  • Patch 0.3.4.0: Renamed Wall Power Poles to Wall Outlets
  • Patch 0.3.3.4: Crash fixed when connecting a new Power Pole to a circuit that have mismatching IDs in it. The system now handles mismatching IDs more gracefully, this was most likely caused by buildings being removed using a save game editor
  • Patch 0.3.3.0: Introduced new meshes for Power Poles Mk.1, Mk.2 and Mk.3
  • Patch 0.3.1.0:
    • Power Poles can now be upgraded in-place the same way as Conveyor Belts
    • Wall Power Pole costs have been tweaked
  • Patch 0.3:
    • Introduced Wall Power Poles
    • Power Poles placed when building Power Lines now snap to the foundation grid
  • Patch 0.1.8: Now show their correct name in their interaction menu
  • Patch 0.1.6: Fixed outdated descriptions
  • Patch 0.1.5: Increased the maximum amount of connections on Mk.2 (6 → 7) and Mk.3 (8 → 10) Power Poles
