The substation is the third tier of electric poles. It offers the largest supply area of all of the electric poles, and the second-largest wire reach, beaten only by the big electric pole.

Its massive supply area makes it the best choice for powering large, dense areas of machinery. However, its 2x2 footprint can make it difficult to place in certain situations. Additionally, its cost can limit its usefulness mid-game until mass-production of advanced circuits is achieved.

History

  • 0.15.0:
    • Increased the substation supply area (16X16 to 18X18) and wire reach (16 to 18).
