Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Production Rate: 1 Units/s
  • Small Generator will fill one bar of battery in 4 seconds.
  • One Icon Organic.png Organic will fuel the Small Generator for 100 seconds and produces 100 Units.

This generator can be placed in either a Widget slot on a player's backpack or on a platform slot. Once a stack of Icon Organic.png Organic is placed on top of it, the generator will convert the Organic to Power over time.

Once started, the generator will consume the block of Organic even when there is no power needed on the backpack or in the network, but can be toggled on or off with the action key. Once the organic resource has been attached to the generator it cannot be removed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

In the Excavation Update, the Small Generator swapped places with the Small Solar Panel, specifically as a power management tutorial.

In the Basebuilding Update, the generator can now be toggled on or off, saving fuel. It also creates a small platform under it when placed on the ground.
