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. Uses 180 kW, smelting speed is 1, pollution is 1/s.

Electric steel furnace

Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing. Uses 180 kW, smelting speed is 2, pollution is 2/s.

Electric Furnace 1 (unmodified from base game)

Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 2. Uses 180 kW, smelting speed is 2, 2 module slots.
This and all subsequent electric furnaces produce pollution at 1/s.

Electric furnace 2

Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 3. Uses 180 kW, smelting speed 3, 2 module slots.

Electric furnace 3

Unlocked by researching Advanced material processing 4. Uses 240 kW, smelting speed 4, 4 module slots.

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.
