In this Nuclear series I will show you how to setup a minimal waste nuclear power build using only base recipes in the game. We'll power 10 Nuclear Power Plants and take the 100 Uranium Waste generated from them to create Plutonium Fuel Rods and send them to the AWESOME Sink.
This article is about the Top 30 Best Ways To Make Fuel! Actually, there's only two ways but there's many variants of those ways. The purpose of this video and is to tell a story about how much building is required for each process and how much power each process creates, there are pros and cons to each solution.
This article shows you how to utilise a tripped power network to allow generators to become saturated before powering on.
Drones in Update 4 are a great way to transport resources across the map. However what if you wanted to transport from a remote location that does not have any power?
Easy, just use packaged fuel delivered to a drone port at that location and you can unpack it and use it to power fuel generators which in turn will power the drone ports and miners/extractors/packagers.
This video shows you how to do exactly this from the new Impure Uranium node added to the top of the mountain at the highest point of the map.
The amount of Fuel created from Crude Oil and it's by-products can vary greatly depending on what recipe combinations you use. This video is about telling a story of how many machines need to be built and how much power will be created.
Overclocking power generators is a misunderstood concept, however if you're keen to go out and get slugs for the power shards then you can reduce the amount of generators required by 50% for the same amount of power output.
Diluted Fuel is an alternate recipe that allows you to create more packaged fuel by combining Heavy Oil Residue with Packaged Water.
Unlocking the Extended Power Infrastructure milestone in the Hub unlocks the Fuel Generator and Fuel Power recipes in the refinery.
Trains are another way of transporting resources. While trains are simple in nature, their setup can get complicated if not planned. These episodes go through both a double-ended train and a train loop configuration as well as railway placement techniques.
Coal power is the first time you use pipes to move fluids in the game. It is the simplest form of automated power (apart from Geothermal) however if you don't set it up correctly you can end up with power outage situations that can be frustrating to resolve.
