Basics

Used to specify priority of energy usage in the Electric network.

Values

primary

"primary-input" and "primary-output" (previously just "primary")

As input used for the most important machines, currently used for laser turrets. As output used by solar panels.

secondary

"secondary-input" and "secondary-output" (previously just "secondary")

As input used for all other machines. As output used in steam generators.

terciary

"terciary"

As input/output used for accumulators, to collect the overproduction or provide energy when neither primary/secondary output can't.

none

Default value, used in input/output doesn't allow the machine to have input/output flow of energy from the network.

example

   usage_priority = "primary-input"
   (older versions) input_priority = "primary"
   (older versions) output_priority = "secondary"
