Mech recharger

Mech recharger

Lightweight mechanoids can recharge here. During recharge, this recharger produces toxic wastepacks and stores them internally. Haulers must remove the wastepacks from time to time.

Mech rechargers are buildings added by the Biotech DLC that allow the recharging of light mechanoids.

Acquisition

Mech rechargers can be constructed once the Basic mechtech research project has been completed. They require Steel 125 Steel, Component 1 Component and 8,000 ticks (2.22 mins) of work

Summary

Mech rechargers constantly require 200 W of direct, electrical power, even when not actively recharging a mech. They are placed on the ground and can't be minified, or uninstalled.

Mech rechargers can recharge light mechanoids. This includes:

A recharger gives the mechanoid 50% of their power need per day. This accumulates the recharger's waste meter. When a recharger is full of waste, a hauler can pick up 5 toxic wastepacks from the recharger. The exact amount of waste technically depends on the mechanoid, but all light mechanoids excrete 5 wastepacks. The existence of waste does not stop the recharger.

Suitable mechs will seek a recharger once reaching a configurable amount of charge, and a control group of mechs can be commanded to recharge (or avoid recharging) at will.
