The big electric pole is an improved electric pole. It is a more specialized variant compared to the medium electric pole, offering the longest wire reach of all of the electric poles, with the trade-off of a very short supply area. Because of this, big electric poles are ideal for long-distance power lines, as they require the smallest number of entities to be placed to span a given distance, but generally unsuitable for providing local coverage to groups of structures.

History

  • 0.9.0:
    • Visualizations of Area of effect when hovering on pole.
    • Further optimization on building while holding mouse down.
  • 0.7.0:
    • Poles now auto-connect to all poles in reach with no common neighbor.
    • Building electric poles with shift pressed builds it without any connections.
  • 0.6.3:
    • Max wire distance between poles is limited to the smallest pole's when manually connecting.
  • 0.5.0:
    • Shows what is connected to the electric pole when selected.
    • Added electric network statistics
