Fuel is a currency which is consumed in order to generate power or operate a machine. Fuel is gained by sacrificing specific types of items, called fuel items.

Two major categories of fuel items exist: spaceship fuel items, which are used to refill the player ship's FTL fuel supply, and generator fuel items, which are used in generators to create the electricity required to operate many objects crafted at a Power Station.

Spaceship Fuel ItemsEdit

Spaceship fuel items are loaded into the player ship's Fuel Hatch. If the FTL fuel supply is not already at maximum capacity, the Fuel button can be pressed to convert some fuel items in the Fuel Hatch into FTL fuel.

Generator Fuel Items Edit

Several electricity generators require fuel items to function: the Alternator Generator, the Combustion Generator, the Fission Reactor, and the Quantum Reactor. Each has its own list of valid fuel items and their benefits.

Alternator Generator Edit

The Alternator Generator's electricity generation per time is independent of the type of fuel item used. Fuel item type only determines the rate of consumption of fuel items.

Combustion Generator Edit

The Combustion Generator's electricity generation per time is independent of the type of fuel item used. Fuel item type only determines the rate of consumption of fuel items.

Fission Reactor Edit

The Fission Reactor's electricity (and radiation) generation per time is the sum of the power values of the fuel item types placed in all four fuel slots. Fuel item consumption is based on the decay rate of that item - the chance of consumption of a single fuel item each second is 1 in 60 (high), 1 in 80 (medium), or 1 in 100 (low).

Quantum Reactor Edit

The Quantum Reactor's electricity generation per time and fuel item consumption rate depend on the fuel item type. Maximum electricity output is achieved while the Quantum Reactor has been running for at least 15 seconds.
