if you point to them, it tells you their output, that's all you really need.evandy wrote: ↑Mon Jun 17, 2019 6:07 pmIs there a description somewhere for how the types of neuclear reactor perform? Does thorium and mk2 just give more power per area, and deuterium/mk3 even better? Trying to understand whether and how to upgrade my mk1 uranium setup.
I don't see anything in the tool tips with power output, time, & etc.
Uranium/MK1 is 40MW, Thorium/MK2 is 72MW and Deuterium/MK3 is 90MW
then you just need to consider that HE1 is 10.8MW, HE2 is 14.4MW and HE3 is 18MW (though the game rounds those down)
so an example, a thorium reactor can power 5 HE2s but 4 HE3s, where the Deuterium reactor can power 5 MK3s.
Always keep your turbines/steam engines to the same tier as your heat exchangers. Turbine 1 is Tier 3, like steam engines 3, and HE1 is tier 3 like boiler 3. 1 HE powers 2 turbines of it's tier, or 4 steam engines.
So, assuming you keep the turbines to HEs of the same tier, the ratios there never change. The ratios for all MK2 is the same as ratios for all MK3, but where a MK2 reactor can power 5 MK2 HEs, the MK1 reactor can only power 3.7 MK1 HEs.
Also, lots of updates!
