The Fire Powered Generator is used to power Furnaces and other Crafting stations via connection by Conductive Wooden Flooring and/or Conductive Igneous Floor. When fueled, it can power two crafting stations at 100% capacity. When powering more than 2 crafting stations, all stations connected decrease in efficiency meaning crafting times are increased.
Generates power by burning almost anything.
Fire Powered Generators can be constructed from the Assembly Station.

The Fire Powered Generator, as well as the Crafting Stations connected to it, must be placed on top of Conductive Wooden Flooring and/or Conductive Igneous Floor in order to provide power to machines. Crafting stations powered by both Wood and Power Stones can be powered by the generator. The generator can power multiple crafting stations, however, when there are more than 2 stations connected, the power generated to each is decreased, meaning it will take longer to finish crafting. The table below shows the power generated to each station based on how many are powered on the same generator. Note that it only applies to crafting stations that are actually crafting, or using power. If 5 stations are connected to the same generator and only 2 are currently crafting, then the power to each will still be 100%. The other 3 will have no effect until you start crafting with them also. To help equalize the power, additional generators can be connected to the same grouping of Crafting Stations, should you choose to do so.
The Fire Powered Generator can also be donated to the Museum as a Medium Assembled Item. When donated, it gives:
|Power Per Crafting Station|
|Crafting Stations to connect to generator(s)||1||100||100||100||100||100|
With the update to Alpha 5.0, some changes have been made to the generator. The max runtime has been increased from 2,000 minutes (1d 9hr 20min), to 3,600 minutes (2d 12hr). Also, quarried items can no longer be taken by the generator. The generator has since been updated to now have a maximum time of 12,000 minutes (8d 8h).
Be careful when fueling, as the Fire Powered Generator takes a lot of items that are not listed. Most items not listed only burn for 10 min each, so 360 can be added to the generator to max its runtime. This is a good way to get rid of excess materials that sell 1 to 1, for example, all of that Bones stored up can be taken by the generator.
Fire Powered Generator cannot be Gifted.
