The generator outputs a constant 1000 W, burning 4.5 chemfuel per day (no matter how much power is actually drawn). 4.6 generators are needed to power a full hydroponics setup, which will require ~21 chemfuel per day, or about 3 hydroponics basins. I have two generators, and over 1k wood. 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. IMO Chemfuel generators are much better than wood ones. On most maps there's no reason not to use solar and/or wind.
Fuel has to be delivered to the generator by a colonist. < > Showing 1-9 of 9 comments . Close. A refinery makes 70 wood into 35 chemfuel which is 2 wood per fuel. Pawns cut trees to get wood, hauls wood to stock, grabs wood from stock to refine, do the bill, haul chemfuel to stock, then refuel the generator with chemfuel. Type Buildings – Power Placeable Yes Size 2 ˣ 2 HP 300 Power + 1000W Resources to make 100 2 Deconstruct yield 75 1. I'm not sure a new opinion warrants yet another necro to this already old thread (it's two years old after all), but your differing opinion also doesn't take into account extra refueling jobs (needs to be done 100% more frequently with wood-fired generators) and woodcutting jobs. The fire was put out and the conduit repaired. © Valve Corporation.
This is only efficient if the food is fed to the animals as nutrient paste meals. Puzzling. what is the best? A15 - Fueled generator will consume fuel faster. A completely fueled-up generator will run for 6 days and 16 hours without refueling. Wood-fired generator. Geothermal generator. Fuel and energy economy. The issue isn't so much the fuel cost as it is the work required to constantly refuel them.
It can be constructed after researching Electricity. Wood generator uses 22 wood per day meaning 1 wood = 45.4545454545455 watts.. A Chemfuel generator uses 4.5 fuel per day so 1 fuel = 222.222222222222 watts. This page was last edited on 22 September 2020, at 04:59. A herd of 4 animals will therefore comfortably fuel the entire setup, indefinitely, and a biofuel refinery will not be required.
All that work gets in the way of other work just to have power. I suppose that if you are refining chemfule from wood.. that would take a while too. However, the power draw of the refinery is not taken into account (it can be micro-managed if chemfuel is produced in batches, and will not play a big role in the overall economy). By mid game, one lucky chemfuel deep reserve and you can run those things eternally. This is not attainable in practice, but will serve as a guideline. 19. The chemfuel powered generator produces power from chemfuel. Beta 18 - name changed from fueled generators to wood-fired generators but otherwise identical. The chemfuel powered generator produces power from chemfuel.
Must be placed on a geyser.
Using batteries to catch the night-time excess power, the setup described will cover the food and energy needs of a medium-sized colony entirely (without having to resort to any other power sources). Espically since you can just tame and "milk" boomalopes for chemfuel. Early on (Before you get chemfuel obviously) and if the map has plenty of wood (Forest or swamp) then wood-burning generators are a good source of quick, stable power.
Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts . They still break down like other power sources. 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). Español - Latinoamérica (Spanish - Latin America). Chemfuel powered generators can be constructed after you have completed research into Electricity. Power production is constant so long as they do not run out of fuel which greatly reduces your base's need for batteries, but will eat into your wood reserves over time, and will add additional workload for your haulers to take care of. Type Buildings – Power Placeable Yes Size 6 ˣ 6 HP 500 Power + 3600W Resources to make 400 + 8 Deconstruct yield 255 + 6. A full 22 hydroponics basins will be available to grow plants for free in the colony with such a setup. 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. Generators are a low-level light source, and also produce heat. A wood-fired generator is a power source that runs by burning wood as fuel. https://rimworldwiki.com/index.php?title=Wood-fired_generator&oldid=75185. Is this a bug, or am I missing something?
This converts into ~7 chemfuel per day at a biofuel refinery. In practice this is not entirely attainable, because milking the animals and refueling the generators will not be a seamless process. you can not only keep the lights on, you can build many mortar shells out of em and make your enemies flee in terror.

Generators are a low-level light source, and also produce heat. It also produces a slight amount of heat as secondary effect but not enough to classify as temperature control element. I have hardly ever needed to use any kind of generator that I had to provide fuel for. It requires a colonist to refuel it. The generator is an exact analog to the wood-fired generator, only the type of fuel is different. A single hydroponics basin can produce ~0.7 raw nutrition per day (growing rice, and assuming a perfect grow operation). This will yield ~2.1 nutrition per day, per hydroponics basin, enough to feed 2 animals, producing 12 chemfuel per day, fueling ~2.6 generators.
It is also possible to use boomalopes to convert the food into chemfuel, instead of refineries.
The geothermal generator is a power generator that once researched, can be built on top of a steam … r/RimWorld. The reason I dont like wood, even in heavly wooded maps, is that they dont stay fueled long, and that you have to cut down alot of trees.
RimWorld > General Discussions > Topic Details. A boomalope produces at most 6 chemfuel per day.
Backup Generators v1.0 (Wood and Chemfuel) Mod Release. Since we know each fuel gives us ~222w then 1 wood is half of it and so = 111.111111111111 watts.
This page was last edited on 5 June 2020, at 09:35. Fuel has to be delivered to the generator by a colonist. At least in my experience. 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. Now this generator does not work.
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. but if you mine it or get it from boomalops its much faster to get in large quantaties. Jul 23, 2016 @ 3:59pm Why won't my guys refuel the generators? The generator outputs a constant 1000 W, burning 4.5 chemfuel per day (no matter how much power is actually drawn). From RimWorld Wiki. 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. A lot of excess power is generated at the end of the chain.
Not sure on the efficiency per unit or anything like that but for convenience alone, I'm for chem.
It has ample wood, and is switched on, but it says "0 Watts," and there is a flashing lightning bolt on the generator. It is feasible to run 4 generators indefinitely from a herd of 3 boomalopes (one boomalope can fuel ~1.3 generators). Hello- I have a wood-fired generator which is not working, but it does not say why.
A wood-fired generator is a power source that runs by burning wood as fuel. All rights reserved. Both are a lot more niche in the current version since the short circuit event is no longer related to energy storage.
