Unstable power cell

Unstable power cell

A mechanoid power generation unit. The vanometric power core will run forever, extracting energy from quantum foam fluctuations. An internal amplifier system makes it unstable. If damaged, the unit will generate a massive explosion. Some brave humans steal these from mechanoids for their own use as power plants or defensive bombs. However, an unintentional detonation can be devastating.

An unstable power cell is a power generation units that is of Mechanoid origin. The cell will always output 400w and can be placed anywhere, but if damaged can explode like an antigrain warhead. The cell bears some similarities to the Vanometric power cell in that it will create free energy infinitely and can be placed in fortified positions.

The explosion has a radius of 9.9 tiles.

Obtaining

The UPC can be claimed and stolen from mechanoid clusters once the cluster is defeated. Beware of mechanoid turret explosions damaging the UPC, resulting in a chain explosion that can easily kill nearby colonists.
