Apperantly there are multiple tutorials. Although there is no link from this page to the Tutorial page. Is it an idea to link to the Tutorial page? I am doubting in which format this is best implemented. Perhaps a section "See Also" ? --Hayertjez (talk) 13:57, 2 August 2018 (UTC)

I support linking pages like power production and other power related tutorials in a see also section, but what kind of relevance do tutorials in general have for one specific tutorial? -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 14:18, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Seemingly there is a reference on the landing page to the tutorials. But I overlook that catergory because I do not consider myself a "Beginner" After visiting the nuclear power tutorial page I thought, there could be more tutorials but where?. So I removed :Nulcear_Power from the Nuclear power URL to see if there are more tutorials available, and they where. Then I thought is there a category Tutorials or so but could not find them. So I posted this message to think about a better guidance to the Tutorials (even if the content is not so much for beginners). Perhaps it is good the way it is and my finding of the page tutorials is too special to adjust the current setup. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Hayertjez (talkcontribs) 14:54, 2 August 2018‎
Thanks for the info. I have added a see also section that includes a link to the overview page, I hope it's what you were looking for. -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 15:48, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
Great, I hope this helps future users. Also thanks for considering my feedback. --Hayertjez (talk) 06:45, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Possible error in Always on section

Since exchanges produce 120 steam/second and a tank holds 25k steam, a tank will keep 208 seconds worth of heat exchanger.

If I understand correctly, the numbers should be "103 steam/second" and "242.5 seconds". Diraria (talk) 18:31, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

From what I know, you are right, so please correct the page :) -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 18:34, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Error in the raw resource cost

The section "Raw resource cost of running a single reactor (late game)" contains an error. It assume all U235 will be produced by Kovarex enrichment. In fact, some U235 will be produced by ore processing, and that reduces the resource cost a little. By my calculations, the cost of running one reactor for one second is not 0.08 uranium ore per second as stated, but 40/507 ≈ 0.0789 uranium ore per second. I did not correct the calculations because I believe adding this level of detail is more likely to confuse than clarify. However, for correctness, I think it is necessary to document that the 0.08 ore per second is an approximation, so I added a note to that effect.

How is the power/distance table for heat pipes calculated?

I built a setup with a 70 tile long heat pipe outgoing from a 80 MW reactor and one heat exchanger at the last pipe. There were still 857°C incoming. How is your table calculated? It is not clear how heat exchangers act there. Is it necessary to change all of the reactors heat performance into steam and then the last exchangers should be placed at most at the given distance?
