Nuclear Power - Possible error in Centrifuge numbers

Post by OliB150 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 3:27 pm

First time posting here, but also just gone through my first time setting up Nuclear Power (build first, read Wiki second :lol: ). The following text seems incorrect to me, but it could just be me reading completely incorrectly and not understanding how it all works, so I won't be offended by being told I'm wrong (on this ;) )
One un-moduled Centrifuge enriching uranium is sufficient to supply 33.33 reactors with fuel, assuming plenty of U-238. One Centrifuge with two Productivity modules is enough to supply 25.2 reactors, one Centrifuge with two Productivity modules 3 is enough to supply 28 reactors.
It is correct that an un-moduled Centrifuge can supply more reactors than one with two Productivity Module 3's?

Yes, productivity modules slow the machine down.
