KocLobster Posted February 20, 2017 Share Posted February 20, 2017 I'm trying to determine if hitting a power switch and disabling the attached machine actually stops sucking power from the batteries and power generator sources. I suppose I'm also trying to determine if this happens as well when disabling a building. I can't seem to measure either way if one or the other works (or if neither actually do this). Judging from the power overlay screen, hitting the power switch does not seem to prevent a machine from continuing to suck power from batteries, which would seem to make power switches 100% irrelevant and useless. Disabling a building, however, does seem to stop this from happening. Again, I have no way of measuring this, I'm just going off of the power overlay screen. Can anyone clear this up for me? If power switches don't work in this manner, then what good are they? They don't seem particularly useful if so. I attached pictures. The first is a disabled building, the second is just a power switch turned off. Edit: I see now that disabling machines consume no energy or resources. Still not sure what that means for power switches though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
