The big electric pole is part of the second tier of electric poles. It is a sidegrade of 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.

Its extensive wire reach makes it particularly well-suited to long-ranged power distribution, but its smaller supply area makes it a poor choice for directly connecting to machines; for that, medium electric poles and substations should be used instead.


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
