Multiplier for generators

  • I'm having a problem when trying to make the generators produce more energy.


    For example, on the Geothermal Generator, with the multiplier on 5.0 it's producing 100 EU per tic, but the problem is that apparently it's not leaving the generator fast enough


    I have made some tests with a single Generator, an HV cable and a MFSU the generator keeps filling the internal buffer making it, once it's full turning on and off constantly.


    Is there any other config I should modify in order to fix this, or it's a bug?


    Thanks a lot.

  • If you've got a tier 1 generator but make it generate more than 32 EU/t, it will fill. There's no way to increase the tier/actual maximum output of the generators purely because they're not meant to generate that much in the first place.

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realise that what you read was not what I meant.

    I see this too much.

    If they wanted to make it so it could devs could add and upgrade slot to generators. The transformer upgrade would work great for increasing the output. Would especially work well for Geothermal Generators.

    Didn't know there are other tiers of Geothermal Generators, will have to check that.


    Oh ok, so I should adjust the multiplier to make it match the max output at 32 and no try to take it to 100 I get it ;)


    Now,
    on your point of "purely because they're not meant to generate that
    much in the first place" well, no, but the config was there, I thought
    it would be ok to tweak it to taste :P Problem is that I'm having some
    issues trying to keep a Mass Fabricator fully powered without draining
    the MFSU that fast, that's why I took a look at the configs and see what
    can be done from there.

    That would be great, maybe I'm wrong but 20EU per tic doesn't seam a lot and while some machines like Compressors, Macerators and even recyclers can be powered "almost" with no problem. I'm using 24 Geothermal Generators and they not enough to keep the Mass fabricator going. I know this is something more end game, but anyway I would like to be able to power them this way if possible by the configs.


    I will also be checking some Solar Panel add on mods and check the Wind generators, but not sure how those will perform, long time since I last used them.

    There's not multiple tiers, just the geothermal generator is a tier 1 generator, like the normal one is and solar panels are. Kinetic Water/Wind Mills, for example, are tier 3 generators so can output up to 512 EU/t.

    Now, on your point of "purely because they're not meant to generate that much in the first place" well, no, but the config was there, I thought it would be ok to tweak it to taste

    The configs were originally designed for the Nuclear Reactor because people saw them as under powered, and because they can go all the way up to something silly like 8192 EU/t, it never really mattered how high you set it. But with things like the geo-gen, even 1.6x tips it over the 32 EU/t limit it has. It's just something you've got to be careful of changing the outputs.

  • Why would you want a Transformer Upgrade in a Generator? Without changing the configs, that wouldn't do anything at all.
    Regarding the MassFabricator: Currently, you can pump an "infinite" amount of energy in the masfab, so you can not have it working at full speed.
    Regarding the generators not outputting more than their tier allows: When the EnergyNet is back into place, that will matter again, because if they outputted more energy than their tier allows, your machines may blow up by just changing the config file, which is of cours something most people would *not* want to happen.

    Great to know, thanks a lot, gonna do some Windmills then, I though they weren't much better, but knowing they can output much better EU I'm gonna do them, plus I think they are really fun to build and they look awesome.


    Thanks ;) Happy New Year.
