You say cleaner energy, do you mean nuclear?

Anyway, keeping an eye on this. Cheers.

Oh.. nono. Nuclear will come in the vanilla game if i remember well. The goal in this mod is use actual knowledge of coal processing and a bit of scifi to generate energy from coal with very low emissions in late game with a big production chain. Is what people call today as "green coal". From the use of syngas to CO2 storage etc.

Great mod.
At last we get some nice things to do with all the coal after solar empire has raised.

Hi Pyanodon
question - we can do iron by processing coal?

Hahah solar empire will tremble with the raise of CO2 storage!! Hahaha. Thank you.

Yes... but very few. If you burn the iron oxide in any furnace, you will get iron ore. 1:1. Not enough to sustain a base, but will helps since coal have small parts of iron on it and the destructive destilation column can extract that lil iron.

Works also in 0.13.

Is the 8.9MW flare stack a bit OP?

Greetings steinio

Yes, it is. But that turbine eats a lot of syngas too. Next release i will do some balance things in that production.

Yes you are right.
I don't get a stable power supply without supporting steam engines for your factories but nearly 9MW feels to high comparing to a steam engine with 512kW.

Do you have ideas for more recipes for creasote. Didn't hear from it before today.
How about some tar tiles for roads?

Greetings steinio

Humm.. so you must produce more syngas to burn in that turbines. Try store in a tank, the turbine's consuption and pollution generation are variable with the power necessity. Next release will balance it better.

With blue science, creosote can be refined into crude oil in a very low yield and other recipes. With green science, Tar can be break into some syngas and use a special building to extract few minerals from it. The idea of using tar for roads is nice, i will add it in my schedule to transform tar into asfalt.

Thanks for your suggestions, was useful. :)

Nice.
I don't care about pollution but this seems also a bit low for burning gas.

Greetings!

Version 0.1.2 is released in the modportal with some balancing things:

- Energy generation of MK01 gas turbine was cut in 1/3.
- Iron oxide production cut in a quarter because it´s a subproduct of destructive distillation of coal.
- Coke production was reduced too since it burns better than coal.
- Added the russian locale, thanks to: deltdelt


Some important note: I making the second step in this mod to bring unlocks with the green science tier. So, to do that, i will need some ingredients that´s present into Bob´s intermediates. This mod will have that dependency in the near future when i release the 0.2.1 version. So keep that in mind when upgrading later. I will announce it better when time comes.

For now, here what i will bring to you in the second tier:

Steinio gave me that great idea of making asphalt, so it was added in my schedule.

This is looking spectacular! Can't wait to see this evolve!

I've not used any of the Bobs mods yet, so not sure what they do... What impact does installing Bob´s intermediates have on the game?
