Weylin Posted January 23, 2013 Share Posted January 23, 2013 Just to test it, I made a large fusion generator, with 8 large turbines (72 turbines), and superconductor wiring feeding back into the power buffer battery box. The containment chamber is a doughnut 1 layer thick, and 3 blocks out. All turbines are spinning. The insides are filled with plasma and flames, and the turbines are all spinning. The power being generated seems to be only barely enough to sustain the reaction, and in fact, the battery eventually runs dry after a long time of usage. There is no net gain of power. It is literally more feasible to get power from heat generators (which are OP and should be removed imo, since lava never cools down, it's a more sensible heat source than anything but possibly solar power) Am I missing something critical, or is fusion power supposed to be posing the problems it does now, with it taking more energy to maintain the reaction than is actually gained?
