At the start of my new survival i tried out the new wind power mechanic using kinetic wind tirbines and a kinetic generator. I quickly crafted a carbon wind turbine and built myself a tall tower and like 150 long HV cable up into the sky. The first problem i encountered was finding enough wind for my turbine and my first question is this, is higher better with the new wind turbines or is 160 blocks the sweet spot like iv'e read somewhere?
Finally i managed to get the turbine running at around 230 height and it worked nicely for quite some time as a early energy source. However sometimes it stopped working due to the natural variation in wind so at times the kinetic wind generator would stop. This is all fine and well but over time the amount of time it had to little wind increased untill the turbine stopped working alltogether. it was as if the wind turbine had "consumed" all the wind in this location. Could someone comfirm this cause if that is the case the wind turbines would constantly need to be moved to produce any power, and using a lot of wind power would be out of the question.
Spwnx, im counting on you
