Wind Turbines (Power)

Postby GamingBud » Fri Jan 02, 2015 5:51 am

There should be Wind Turbines as an object added in the next update, or soon.

Pros : can interconnect with other power generator grids to make it easier to distribute power without making separate grids with other generators
half or 2/3rds the price of a regular generator.
Cons : would take up about 5x5 tiles
would only generate a moderate amount of power
would be easy to shutdown by prisoners and cause a blackout
cannot use capacitors

More Cons:
- Must be placed outside
- Unstable power

I think the separate-circuit rule should stand, and therefore wind turbines should only connect to each other and not to the main generator.

But the biggest question is why. Why? What kind of problems will wind turbines solve? Why do we need it? Is Greenpeace banging on our prison door to stop using our good old generator?

No interest in this at all sorry. Doesn't really seem to serve a real purpose imo other than add an extension to how much power a single generator can produce. Not sure how important that really is.

The only reason i thought about doing this was for the interconnect grids :?
