3 extractors and 6 coal generators.

2 extractors and 5 coal generators. I am building the power plant at my oasis bar and bring all the coal there. While you're probably not ready for this at the moment, I would recommend preparing by having separate power lines from each section (feeding generators vs power from generators). You need at least 3 pipes delivering these 16 generators because they max out at 300m3/s. If the pressure is under 10, you have too many pumps, Well now that I have learned this I understand why so much of it has been a pain.

You can connect generators together at a pole, so you only need one wire to run power, connect them all and there's no limit to how much power they can transmit. After having issues trying to run 5 pumps to several generators, I tried your solution and it fixed my issue. A place to discuss the game by Coffee Stain Studios currently in Early Access. A subreddit for Satisfactory enthusiasts. I'm not get too far on new update, but if you put an water tank and buffers a bit higher than generators, it should create enough pressure to supply then. I built my coal plant on the ocean and I transport compacted coal across the map via belts to serve to the coal plants. I think I will need to redo some of my factories. Press J to jump to the feed. Bonus tip: the pumps push water, so they need to be at the base of a ramp to push the water uphill. You can barely power 3 power plants with 1 miner and 1 pump, basic belts and maybe a single power shard. So build your plant near the water source!

Do you run water and coal somewhere?

Trying to plan how to get my coal up and running but im unsure how much water i need. Was mostly about position and transportation of materials. Then, transport the coal using conveyor belts to the lakes. But essentially just go read the tooltips of the buildings, they will tell you how many things per minute they use, and how many per minute they produce.

Water needs to flow in both directions, or pressure will be a big issue. Build coal power plants right next to the lake. A place to discuss the game by Coffee Stain Studios currently in Early Access. Let’s say the player wants to set up 7 coal generators and they are all fully supplied with coal. This has far less restrictive rules about content than the dev's reddit for this game. All type of fuels and water consumption is proportionally reduced when the power usage is not at 100%.

And another pure node on the little island but no water. And running between power to fuel it sucks. I set myself on the lake as there is water and 2 nodes. With MK 1 poles, you can connect 2 generators to a pole, and that pole to 2 other poles. Additionally I use geothermal to power my pumps and extractors for my coal factory - and then I use my coal factory to power my turbofuel generators (I'll post screenshots later). By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. The common number is 360 which means three extractors and eight coal generators. I did not know that. You'll have to do three and have one of the pipes split to the other two and add pumps for directional flow. There are 3 coal nodes here and enough water for about 20 snorkers. I create a floor at water level with water extractor and fluid storage (just 1 small per 2 extractors).I evaluated these combinations: 2 extractors (1 extractor has 1 power shard) and 6 coal generators. It seems that most people icluding myself use the lake north of the noobies plains, coal is right next to water there. Build coal power plants right next to the lake. I started in green zone. Then use cables and power poles to bring the power to your main base/power grid. Most people seem to be building on the ocean and i assune using tractors / trains to bring in the coal? They're close together and no major elevation changes. With the MK2 I upgraded from 8 generators to 16 making plenty of power. Normally i like to figure ot out, but im just sick of biomass burners. I thought if your power can produce 30 then connecting 2 together won't make it 60 it will be still 30... You don't need to run that many wires. All of mine is in one direction only. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. It doesn't really matter where you put the plant it just come down to what infrastructure you want to build. In order to supply these generators with enough water, the following needs to be kept in mind: Each coal generator takes in 45 units of water. Set up water pumps at a nearby lake. Just managed to get to 500 smart plates but don’t even have blueprints for other frame parts. In the north-central part of the map there is the mouth of a river with a pure coal node at one end, and 4 more nodes on the west bank. Ok, learned the hard way. That doesnt sound right at all. Then the last pole, just run one line to your base. This will give you 180 flow per pipe meaning it will supply 4 generators. NOW the pipes can only carry 300 so you won't be able to use just one pipe. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Can’t complain too much since making fuel sticks helps with longevity of the burner by a lot. Coal is much easier to transport to water than the other way around, and power lines are easier to run than belts and pipes. So with 6 extractors you produce 720m3/min, and that's the exact usage of 16 coal plants. Then, transport the coal using conveyor belts to the lakes. Near the center of the map in the crater lake region is another good spot. Would i be shooting myself in the foot by not doing this? 2 extractors (1 extractor has 1 power shard) and 6 coal generators. This means 5 siphons for the cluster, but the main thing is that 3 siphons need to push water from one side, and the other 2 from the opposite side, so that all coal plants get the water at high pressure. Water consumption rate is fixed at 45 m3/min at 100% Clock speed, regardless the type of fuel provided. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the satisfactory community. That lake to the north of your start is a good place to set up. Just slap that on and you have enough power to think about how to build it better without having to run off to add biomass. So you can make an array like this North Central Coal Plant that goes on forever to the ocean, adding more water snorkers and tapping more coal nodes as you need power.

It uses 15 coal/min at max load (as opposed to ~11), and puts out 75MW (as opposed to 50MW). Or you build plant near water and coal but run cables really far away from each plant? Water needs to flow in both directions, or pressure will be a big issue. Thankfully I am about to start oil power lol. Press J to jump to the feed. By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. Set up water pumps at a nearby lake. Similarly, if the water requirement for nuclear generators was reduced from 240 cubic meters to 60-90, this would allow between 1.5 to 2 generators per pump. I also recommand bringing the coal to the extractors instead of bringing the water to the generators because it's free of energy to move coal but it uses power to pump water uphill. How do you do it? Plenty of setups posted dont push from both sides and it's very much counter to how they work in RL so I would hope it isnt true. But i actually set up in that coal hole too. Hi, still pretty new. MK 2 has 7 connections, so 5 machines connected, and MK3 has 10 connections, so 8 machines. Press J to jump to the feed. A second floor with coal generators and pumps to transport water up to the second floor. So like 8 wires or more running from the energy generators?

I see coal behind hill near lake. Any advice would be great. Then it's just multiplication. If you have any more questions go watch u/imkibitz recent video on them. As for extractors each one has a flow of 120 and the coal generators have a input of 45. My thought is that if the water requirement for coal was reduced to 15 - 30 cubic meters or so, this would greatly simplify the the setup and allow between 4 - 8 generators per water pump.

Coal plant use maximum 45m3/min of water. When you get better poles, you can connect more machines. If only half of the power is being used, fuel and water lasts 2x as long.Coal Generators accept the following types of fuel. Both of the main lakes in Greenland can fit at least 6 water pumps (the bigger one can fit 8 if you get real optimal with it). This one gives 19GW net, and I'm just destroying the polymer. Plug the coal and water … Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. With that basic math done, 6 extractors can fit in most water area, you don't have to be on the ocean. CenterLakeTurboFuel, New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the SatisfactoryGame community. Heya ! I am so confused with this game right now lol. It may be because they're both pure, but I'm using 2 coal nodes to power 6 coal generators as well as my steel production. A second floor with coal generators and pumps to transport water up to the second floor. Cookies help us deliver our Services. Each siphon serves 2.5 coal plants, and I tend to cluster 12 of them (4 groups of 3 for perfect logistics; 900MW output). Im quite far from the ocean (without building highways over where my main base will be). Each siphon serves 2.5 coal plants, and I tend to cluster 12 of them (4 groups of 3 for perfect logistics; 900MW output). Does a generator use the same amount of coal as it was in update 2? Farther to the east is a place with coal and sulfur and oil all right next to each other so you can make turbo fuel.
