Devblog 12 – Electricity

Electricity

In our previous blog post we showed you the Floatlands build system and different tiers of structures. Then we thought about different props that you could use in the game, and some of them would need a source of energy. Generators will be that source, in fact, there will be 3 models with different power outputs (50W, 150W, 400W).

You will have to fill them with fuel to get them to work. You will use energy will for lights, lamps, defense systems, turrets and more. You’ll be able to connect multiple devices to a generator and even go over the output limit, but the efficiency of that extra connected device will be lowered (example: extra connected light will generate less brightness).¬†We already managed to connect several turrets to a generator.

We’re even discussing various energy sources, like wind (wind turbines), water (hydroelectricity) and sun (solar panels).
