Energy Upgrade (Mekanism)

Mechanics[edit]

Energy Usage[edit]

The energy usage of a machine can be decreased through the use of Energy Upgrades. The energy use per tick of a machine can be calculated as: EnergyUsage = DefaultUsage x pow(UpgradeMultiplier, (2 x SpeedUpgrades - EnergyUpgrades)/8 ), where DefaultUsage is a configurable amount of energy that a machine uses per tick and UpgradeMultiplier is a configurable value that defaults to 10. Therefore, each additional upgrade decreases power usage by 25%.

Maximum Energy Storage[edit]

The maximum energy that a machine can store is upgraded by each Energy Upgrade placed in the machine. The maximum energy that can be stored in a machine is calculated as: MaxEnergy = DefaultEnergy x pow(UpgradeMultiplier, EnergyUpgrades/8), where DefaultEnergy is a configurable amount of energy that each machine can store and UpgradeMultiplier is a configurable value that defaults to 10. Therefore, each additional upgrade increases the amount of energy stored by 10x.
