It has ample wood, and is switched on, but it says "0 Watts," and there is a flashing lightning bolt on the generator. Puzzling. With or without zzzts, I have always used wind, solar and geothermal. This means that with 5 generators you can grow plants in ~20 hydroponics basins for free, with about 400W of power to spare during the day (3,300W during the night). Close. r/RimWorld. It requires a colonist to refuel it. In practice this is not entirely attainable, because milking the animals and refueling the generators will not be a seamless process. Geothermal generator. RimWorld > General Discussions > Topic Details. A chemfuel powered generator holds 30 chemfuel, consuming 4.5 chemfuel per day. It can be constructed after researching Electricity. Chemfuel generators together with hydroponics greenhouses and biofuel refineries produce a significant net energy profit, if the colonist workforce is available to run the setup. However, it will be necessary to micro-manage the food-production at the nutrient paste dispenser; purists will consider this an exploit of game mechanics. If you are playing on a map with ample trees and wish to avoid dealing with weather's impact on your power supply, wood-fired generators are a reasonable solution. However, chemfuel eventually becomes more abundant if you grow recipe items that can be used to make chemfuel, and those plants usually grow faster than trees. Exanthos. This page was last edited on 22 September 2020, at 04:59. The chemfuel powered generator produces power from chemfuel. Produces electricity from geothermal steam geysers. © Valve Corporation. I have hardly ever needed to use any kind of generator that I had to provide fuel for. This results in a theoretical net gain in energy of about 870W (810W during the day). Now this generator does not work. The chemfuel powered generator produces power from chemfuel. Therefore, the produce from a single basin fuels about 1.5 chemfuel generators. Hello- I have a wood-fired generator which is not working, but it does not say why. Posted by 2 years ago. Sorry to necro this but it's the first google hit and the question does have a mathematical answer which is what I was looking for (because lazy). A refinery makes 70 wood into 35 chemfuel which is 2 wood per fuel. A Wood-fired generator produces power by consuming wood. what is the best? Since the internet has demanded i not be lazy I share this for anyone who follows: You can consider chemfuel to be a renewable resource, since the colony has the means to produce it (unlike eg, neutroamine or luciferium, without mods). A herd of 4 animals will therefore comfortably fuel the entire setup, indefinitely, and a biofuel refinery will not be required. A boomalope produces at most 6 chemfuel per day. Admiral Obvious. Holds up to 75 wood max, and will provide power for roughly 3 days and 9 hours before running out, for a fuel consumption of 22 per day. Since we know each fuel gives us ~222w then 1 wood is half of it and so = 111.111111111111 watts. A wood-fired generator is a power source that runs by burning wood as fuel. User account menu. They are not being fueled, and neither is my smithy. Type Buildings – Power Placeable Yes Size 6 ˣ 6 HP 500 Power + 3600W Resources to make 400 + 8 Deconstruct yield 255 + 6. Chemfuel generators are reallllly nice. The generator outputs a constant 1000 W, burning 4.5 chemfuel per day (no matter how much power is actually drawn). certainly you don't want to use it on ice maps or desert maps. Is this a bug, or am I missing something? The generator outputs a constant 1000 W, burning 4.5 chemfuel per day (no matter how much power is actually drawn). Type Buildings – Power Placeable Yes Size 2 ˣ 2 HP 300 Power + 1000W Resources to make 100 2 Deconstruct yield 75 1. This is not attainable in practice, but will serve as a guideline. A15 - Fueled generator will consume fuel faster. Jump to navigation Jump to search. I have two generators, and over 1k wood. log in sign up. This is only efficient if the food is fed to the animals as nutrient paste meals. A single hydroponics basin can produce ~0.7 raw nutrition per day (growing rice, and assuming a perfect grow operation). Jul 23, 2016 @ 3:59pm Why won't my guys refuel the generators? Jump to navigation Jump to search. Fuel duration 5 days -> 3 days 9 hours. Both are a lot more niche in the current version since the short circuit event is no longer related to energy storage.
