g Guide/Tutorial?

3 years ago

I'm fascinated by this great mod, but I'm obviously doing something wrong, and can't find any sort of guide for it. As far as I can tell I have unlocked all of the tech for it, but no matter what I do I can only seem to get half of the potential performance out of it. Here is a screenshot of one of my setups: https://imgur.com/a/rd1Px. I understand the convenience of being able to choose flipped inputs, but why would I choose the lower performance setting? My steam temp seems to hover around 199, and I cannot figure out how to get the full 500 out of it. At this point I cannot determine if my geo wells are producing more electricity than they consume. Any pointers, help or guide is much appreciated.

Make sure your recipe is of high efficiency; mine has 3 wells that sum up to 18 fluid/sec, one heat exchanger working all times, consuming only 16 fluid/sec, consuming 761 KW producing 23.3 MW giving 22.5 MW continuously. Update if necessary.
