Description

This mod adds an electric boiler, electric versions of the stone and steel furnaces (which can fast-replace the existing ones), and level 2 and 3 versions of the electric furnace, with faster smelting speeds and more module slots. New research to unlock the higher tiers of electric furnace is also added.

Electric stone furnace

  • Available from game start.
  • Smelting speed: 1
  • Power consumption: 90 kW
  • Pollution: 1 per minute (2.5 including boiler emissions)

Electric steel furnace

  • Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing.
  • Smelting speed: 2
  • Power consumption: 180 kW
  • Pollution: 2 per minute (5 including boiler emissions)

Electric Furnace 1 (unmodified from base game)

  • Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 2.
  • Smelting speed: 2
  • Module slots: 2
  • Power consumption: 180 kW
  • Pollution: 1 per minute (4 including boiler emissions)

Electric furnace 2

  • Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 3.
  • Smelting speed: 3
  • Module slots: 2
  • Power consumption: 180 kW
  • Pollution: 1 per minute (4 including boiler emissions)

Electric furnace 3

  • Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 4.
  • Smelting speed: 4
  • Module slots: 4
  • Power consumption: 240 kW
  • Pollution: 1 per minute (5 including boiler emissions)

Electric boiler

Available from game start. Requires 900 kW to run at full speed, produces 900 kW of steam. While you could conceivably use this as part of a solar/stored-steam setup, its main intended function is to provide an alternative source of steam for any recipe that requires it (coal liquefaction, for example).

Known Issues

Electric boiler currently does not emit light - normal boiler lights are based on the burner energy source, and boiler prototypes do not appear to support any other light definition as yet.
