Information

Biter Spires adds alien structures, so-called biter spires, that generate free power when connected to your energy network. These spires generate together with biter bases. Raid those biter bases, expand your energy network to receive free power and prepare to defend these outposts!
To tap energy from a spire, place any power pole that covers the spire.

Note: The biter spires are only created in new chunks. That means biters won't build these structures when they expand their bases.

Configuration

The mod is configurable using the ingame mod options menu (Options -> Mods).

Future plans

  • Add animations when the biter spire is generating power
  • Make biters especially target your structures around the spire
  • Add special biter attacks

Issues and Suggestions
