Item Summary for Ethanol/Petroleum Generator Should Clearly State Petroleum Generators Will Burn Ethanol

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Fixed

I'm a newer player who tries to avoid spoilers, so while I'm sure this doesn't matter to a lot of old hands, things like this make the game harder than it should be to learn.

A lot of the item summaries frankly seem out of date. Plant descriptions that say they need to be live grown, critter descriptions, etc. need to be updated for the various changes over time.

One example I recently had an issue with is ethanol. It says that it can be used for power, but says nothing about how you actually burn it. I look around, and there is nothing in the power category that burns ethanol, according to their descriptions. I look at the Petroleum Generator, and nothing in there that I see says that it burns ethanol (in fact, it specifically says only that it burns petroleum).

It would be good to rename the generator, or somehow put a specific statement under ethanol that it will burn in a petroleum generator.

User Feedback

A developer has marked this issue as fixed. This means that the issue has been addressed in the current development build and will likely be in the next update.

I just reported a bug on this functionality.  Even though they will burn both, you still have to dedicate one to each type of combustible liquid.  You can't mix them in the same generator.
