And if drain is even calculated seperatedly at all it is probably consumed before dynamic consumption
Nope. Test it with 2 assembling-machine-2 and 5 solar panels, they run at full speed and don't pay any drain.
Yes. Tested it with one AM3 and an EEI producing 6458J/t (i.e 387.48kW) and the tooltip gets a yellow energy bar. Projected consumption of AM3 is 375+12.5=387.5, thus in my test drain is required for 100% production. At 6459J/t (i.e. +1J/t) the bar turns green as expected.

The energy bar is a lie, look at production speed.

Well meh. It even says "low power" in the status. But according to the statistics produces at full speed with 6250J/t. If i was in the mood i'd post a bugreport.

Gonna be more difficult to harvest this for inserters with their wavy consumption though.

We could sky rocket the challenge by using nuclear fuel, we should reach about 8.3 GW (quick and dirty calculations, including drills consumption and everything intermediate) but with an insane amount of centrifuge to produce as much as 548.26 nuclear fuel per minute.

How are you going to do that without a uranium input though?

Is uranium forbidden ?

- you're allowed to use any number of buildings, modules, etc. You can use other items (e.g. heavy oil) as a catalyst, but cannot require a supply.
This would suggest that no, Uranium is not allowed.

- creative mode: you get one matter source of coal, as many water fluid sources as you want
So does this

Hmm hmm, correct.
