Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Power Production Rate: 1 U/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, on a platform, or on the ground. Once a nugget of Icon Organic.png Organic is placed on top of it, the generator will convert the Organic to Power over time. The Small Generator may be turned on and off to save the nugget for when power is needed.

Power output may be automated by placing the Small Generator on a platform with storages attached that contain Icon Organic.png Organic. When one nugget has been used up, the next will be pulled until all nuggets have been used up, at which point the generator will stop producing power.

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.
