greggbert Posted September 29, 2017 Share Posted September 29, 2017 I Apologize in advance for not having screenshots, but ever since the Germ update power is behaving in an annoyingly unpredictable way: My Setup Generation (2 Circuits) 2 Generators - Light wire - 2 batteries - Transformer - Heavy Watt 2 Generators - Light wire - 2 batteries - Transformer - Heavy Watt So basically the only thing connected to the heavy watt is the output of both generator transformers Appliances (2 Circuits) Heavy Watt - Transformer - Light Wire - Consumers Heavy Watt - Transformer - Light Wire - Consumers Basically all the transformers are connected to the heavy watt wire, and the only thing that the heavy watt wire does is connect the transformers together. So here's my problem. My dupes run their butts off until all 4 batteries are full. If I then stop them from running, ,when the power drains, it seems to randcmly choose a circuit and drain those two batteries all the way down to zero, before it takes any power from the other generator circuit. That's OK when there are just two generator circuits, but then if I add a third generator circuit Coal Power Plant - light wire - 2 Batteries - Transfomer - Heavy Watt The same sort of thing happens, one generator circuit will drain, all the way to zero, then the second, then the third. First off I hate this. I would rather all generator circuits drained at the same rate into the main network, they don't. But even if that's the rule, my biggest problem is that I can't figure out which generator circuits drain in which order. It seems to be completely random. I would love to make it so that my coal circuit always drains first, and my manual ones last, but I can't figure out how to make that happen. Anyway I hope you understand the problem and would appreciate some tips. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
