Where do I get a Hand Crank Generator (HCG)?

  • You get one free HCG when you start a new game. If you're playing the default "Freeplay" scenario then you will have to salvage it from the wreckage of your crashed spaceship. In other scenarios it will be in your inventory. In the default configuration you can also research the recipe to make more HCGs.
