Power Shards are special items used for overclocking buildings. Each shard increases the maximum allowed clock speed by 50%. A building can accept a maximum of 3 shards, which means a maximum running speed of 250% for production buildings or 202% for power generation buildings (due to overclocking not being linear).

Resource acquisition[edit | edit source]
There are currently 744 Power Slugs known in-game; 406 green, 219 yellow, and 119 purple. 1 slug of each type is consumed as part of research in the M.A.M.. The upper limit of obtainable Power Shards is infinite, as Lizard Doggos can generate an infinite amount of slugs over time. The upper limit of non-renewable collectible power shards is 1431.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Power Shards are used solely for overclocking. See Clock Speed for more details.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- It is best to use them to overclock raw resource extractors (Miners and Oil Extractors) to saturate a conveyor or pipe throughput. Overclocking production buildings is not advised, as more of them can be built instead. Overclocking power generators causes the resulting production speed to result in numbers with decimal spaces, making them considerably harder to work with.
- Underclocking a building does not require any power shard.
- Power Shards are renewable by taming Lizard Doggos, as they have a chance to find new Power Slugs.
