Automatonnn Posted March 9, 2017 Share Posted March 9, 2017 This steam production setup is made to be easy to expand and not require actions from the player after it is build. It has been achieved by making seperate rows that each turn 100g/s of contaminated water into steam. Besides the top and the bottom row every row of batteries can be set up in exact same way. The picture shows a ten high column refining 1kg/s in total. This can support an electrolyzer. The rows of batteries are 20 batteries in length. The batteries are made of iron ore for its availibility in large quantities compared to copper and its higher heat conductivity to heat up the water faster compared to gold amalgam. All other components are made of gold amalgam and ignious rock or sedimentary rock for their low thermal conductivity to avoid cooling down the steam. The current limitation to this steam production is only that large circuit networks can strain the CPU usage very hard forcing me to play in normal speed to prevent freezing the game. I will try to improve this by segmenting my power network further, the tower currently consists of 4 power network segments. This shows it might also be a good tip in other areas. To segment the power network in your base to reduce the lag when you get further into the game. I also learned to not connect large circuit networks together as it freezes the game aswell.
