Generators are one of the most essential parts of any constructs that need generated power. Most spaceships for example need to have a properly assembled generator in order for the ships to function. Every machine or device that requires power must be connected to the generator's socket board via a cable, or otherwise to another source of power such as a battery. A generator is constructed from many modules, and these modules may be assembled in many different variations. The most basic form of a generator consists of a single generator unit, a fuel chamber, a socket board, and a cooling board with cooling cells.

Basic information

Modules can be combined to build a generator for different needs and purposes, with varying shapes, sizes, and efficiency. A generator can be built from the following modules:

  • The fuel rod (This is the container for the the raw fuel that the fuel chamber will process to create energy)
  • The fuel chamber (The fuel rod is placed inside the fuel chamber. The raw fuel is then processed into processed fuel in the fuel chamber)
  • The generator unit (Within the generator unit processed fuel is processed into power)
  • The cooling board (Cooling cells are placed here and coolant is processed to reduce heat)
  • The socket board (For attaching cables, one per 100 000 power)
  • Enhancers (For improving efficiency, in three different tiers)


A generator creates its own resource network within it, which distributes and processes five different resources:

  • Raw Fuel - Stored in the fuel rod.
  • Processed Fuel - Processed in the fuel chamber from Raw Fuel.
  • Power - Processed in the generator unit from Processed Fuel.
  • Heat - Produced from the two latter processes, the processing of raw fuel and the processing of power.
  • Coolant - Stored in the cooling cells. Processed in the cooling board to reduce Heat.

Generator Tiers

Generate components come in three tiers with differing characteristics:

Component Tier 1 - Basic Tier 2 - Efficient Tier 3 - Powerful
Generator Accent Colour Blue Red Yellow
Generator Fuel Chamber Rods Used Nhurgite Fuel Rods Exorium Fuel Rods Exorium Fuel Rods
Generator Fuel Chamber Heat Generated 95 95 80
Generator Unit Electricity Generated per Second 1000 1000 1250
Generator Unit Heat Generated 100 90 80
Generator Fuel:Energy Ratio 1:33 1:33 1:37

Heat and cooling

Generator units and fuel chambers produce heat while working, which can be cooled passively, by coolant cells or by radiators. The heat produced is directly related to the current unit rate, so at 50 rate the generator unit or fuel chamber produces 50% of the heat. If a generator overheats it will reset it's rate to 0.

See heat mechanics for in depth info.
