Now on to the tests: no mods at all, energy interface setup for 10GW load and 2 infinity chest to either get rid of or provide fuel cells. 2x2 was only one with roboports and had 150 bots to play around with. 5.5GW reactor was the worst. 2x2 was better. 2xn was either same as 2x2 or slightly better.Re: How many heat exchangers per pipeline. 2x16 = 32. 2x16 Reactors produce 4x120+28x160=4960 MW. 4960 MW / 10 MW/Heat Exchanger = 496 HE’s, or 248/side as your math indicated. 4960 MW / 5.82 MW/Turbine = 852.23 Turbines, rounding up since its impossible to put a fraction of an entity down. Call it 853. 427 per side.Agreed. The idea of a perfect ratio is predicated on assumptions like: * No nuclear or solid-fuel power in the mix. * Constant consumption (a night raid by biters might chew through your power reserves, then the factory). * Everything is always on (you can turn off power-hungry buildings at night instead). cheers. all good points.1.1 GW is the max you can get out of 8 cores. The middle four have a neighbor bonus of 3 so they generate 160MW. The 4 reactors at the ends each have a bonus of 2 so they generate 120MW. 4 120 + 4 160 = 1120MW ≈ 1.1GW. The rest of the design is just a matter of pushing enough steam around to actually get that much power.2x2 nuclear. nuclear-reactor. nuclear-reactor. nuclear-reactor. nuclear-reactor. Details.
