Ideas Around Energy Production: Solar, Wind, Water, Nuclear, Fusion ...

Post by ssilk » Mon Aug 22, 2016 8:36 pm

I have waited a long time to make a link collection for this subject, cause it is really complicated.

In the end Woodmn convinced me to do this at least for the current discussions around the comming nuclear power and he also helped me a lot by digging through the forum and making a nearly finished list.

I need to point to
- The Friday Facts https://www.factorio.com/blog/post/fff-164 #164 - Nuclear power
This is the current implementation facts.

- the Development Proposal viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5 Electric energy .
That thread is full of ideas and concrete implementation and nearly impossible to dig them all out (but if someone likes to he/she is invited to add his research off course), but it can be recommended from a historic perspective, cause there are some very early ideas, that didn't change till now, more than 3 years later! Which means: That ideas, that didn't change over time are "evergreens" and are really hot candidates for implementation.

Suggestions about Nuclear Fission (and relevant side-aspects)
Thanks again to Woodmn, I extended the list

First, I apologize, but I am going to be pedantic here: The process that would be added in game would most likely be a Nuclear FISSION process, not nuclear fusion (this is also something that always very slightly bugged me about the Portable Fusion Reactor). But, putting that aside, I personally would love to see a more complicated nuclear fission process. I like the amount of steps and the infrastructure you would need to think about. I didn't read through all the topics and posts (not near enough time on my hands), but maybe make fission a mid-game optimal power source, and down the line you could research fusion for an end-game power source. Fusion would be the harder(?) of the two implement as a game mechanic based on the fact that we don't actually have a working (read viable / efficient) Nuclear Fusion Reactor.

Something else I would love to see is the ability of your fission reactors to overheat and melt down. If your power is interrupted and your coolant stops flowing to your reactor, then it could end up VERY bad, possibly contaminating the land around it for a VERY long time. This would make it more viable to place your reactor(s) far, far away from your main base, to prevent a Chernobyl (Factorinobyl?) like scenario. Maybe add "Coolant Units" to the game that work like the steam boilers, but in reverse, cooling your liquids instead of heating them. Not sure why you would want to do this, but that would also allow you condense steam back in to water.

Fixed the headings, it was indeed a bit mixed.

If you want to bring in own ideas or want to discuss I really recommend you to use the upper board, search one of the matching suggestions or make an own, cause here the link collections it is more likely to be ignored.
