Function Converts fuel to power

This page contains information for individual generator unit parts, for information on multi-part assembled generators see: Generator (Assembly).

Generators are one of the most important parts of a spaceship, as they convert fuel into electrical energy in an efficient process. They are extremely modular, and can be configured into complexes of many different shapes and sizes - however, for each adjacent generator, the heat output is also increased.

Basic Usage

  • NOTE! tier 1 generator parts are not compatible with Tier 2 or 3.
    • Tier 2 and tier 3 parts are compatible.


  • Receives Processed Fuel from the fuel chamber and converts it to Power.
    • This process also generates Heat.
    • NOTE! The generators will constantly consume Processed fuel, wasting excess Power unless their ConversionRateLimit is modified via YOLOL.
  • There are six connectors, one on each side.
  • Other modules can be attached to the connectors.


  • Generators produce heat proportional to their unit rate.
  • For every adjacent generator unit or fuel chamber, extra heat will be generated.


  • T1 and T2 units produce 1000 units of electricity per second, if enough fuel is available, T3 units can produce 1250 units of electricity per second.
  • One fuel rod can support three generator units, or 3000 (3750 for T3) units of electricity per second, without enhancement.
    • An enhanced generator unit will generate more power. See enhancers for more info.
