Mandatory properties

This prototype inherits all the properties from Prototype/EntityWithHealth.

energy_source

Type: EnergySource
Must be an electric energy source.

horizontal_animation

Type: Animation

vertical_animation

Type: Animation

effectivity

Type: double
The effectivity of the generator with 0.5 being half as effective as a regular steam-engine generator.

Optional properties

smoke

Type: table of SmokeSource
Array of 1 or more smoke sources.

burns_fluid

Type: bool
Default: false

scale_fluid_usage

Type: bool
Default: false
Scales the generator's fluid usage to its maximum power output.

min_perceived_performance

Type: double
Default: 0.25
Animation runs at least this fast. This corresponds to the sound.

performance_to_sound_speedup

Type: double
Default: 0.5

max_power_output

Type: Energy
Mandatory if burner is used, otherwise optional.

burner

Type: EnergySource
Must be a burner energy source.

fluid_usage_per_tick

Type: double
The number of fluid units the generator uses per tick.

Mandatory if fluid_box is used, otherwise not read.

maximum_temperature

Type: double
Mandatory if fluid_box is used, otherwise not read.

fluid_box

Type: FluidBox
Mandatory if burner is not used, otherwise not read.
