pY Alternative Energy - Discussion

Post by pyanodon »

Description:
  • Add several ways to generate energy aside burning stuff or fusion.
    Rework nuclear
    Can be played alone with the basic py suite or get nice upgrades when played with other mods in the suite
    Adjusted some py recipes to be compatible with this mod.
This mod is not made to be compatible with other major mods. Too much work


Details:
  • Factorio Version: 1.1+
  • Version: 1.0.0
  • License: CC BY-NC-ND 4.0
  • Tags: Energy

Big thanks to Nexela and KingArthur
Special thanks to the fellow helpers:

Hey nice to see new ways of getting energy :D
Pls think about some new eletric poles and substations too

This should be interesting. Aside from the nuclear rework, will this largely be encompassing realistic power methods like wind and geothermal power, or will there be more unusual alternatives too (e.g. giant orbital solar arrays beaming power down with microwave transmitters, or complex biosynthesis processes)?

NICE

every wind turbine must have some kind of electric part do command, store and regulate them

i thought that part was out duty but it is VERY good that they are linearized from the beginning.
btw this might be a bit to in but:
will this type of power-plant need any additional energy storage ?
will there be a proximity penalty ?
will it be ok ( desirable) to tile as many as you can ?

Will we need to feed it with birds to kill since none are flying?

There are no birds in pyAL so it's bees at best

Reworking nuclear means that it will be crossed with uranium chain from PY Raw Ores somehow nad will replace vanilla chain of uranium processing?

well U chain from pyRO includes vanilla chain
problem with nuclear as of now is that py nuclear is very bad compared to vanilla since:
-week feedback ( all rods return vanilla used rod so mk2 rod or mk5 rod it is same return )
-there is no rod mk bonus , yes they last longer per unit but the reactor still has same power output ,
so it is same setup as vanilla but instead of 10 rods/ you use 1/s (also that rod uses much more resources including ore)

I was thinking adding something like the Simcity 2000 microwave power plant would be cool. Since you obviously can't build a solar network in space you could do something similar to how tholins are collected now. We could build a really expensive solar module that gets loaded onto a rocket and an item called something like a paired receiver module could be returned after launch that is an ingredient to build the microwave dish building that actually generates the power.

this is gonna be awesome! how well will this integrate into current games (I suppose I am just wondering if I will need to make a new map :roll: )

great work as usual. i am really looking forward to this.

probably not great. there's going to be a bunch of adjustment's along side the release that trying to just update and add it in will not be a great idea.
