  1. The reason why you cant place the coal, gas etc. plants away from water:
    "This building needs to be placed close to a water source, for cooling and steam generation"

    It has nothing to do with the cities.

  2. I think it only allows you to place stations in certain areas due to optimal efficiency. I think natural gas can only be placed along the water for import purposes.

  3. This is going to be a great series . I have this game on my wishlist and it's on sale I guess I'll be picking this one up for sure.

  4. This game will make for an interesting series as you progress through various levels and get the points to unlock new things. Then once you have beaten all the levels on normal, you can play them again on hard conditions and see how you fare.

  5. Charlie.. love this!! <3 But I'm thinking running the high power lines directly through substations is increasing their load.. maybe putting lines around its side would help?

  6. So, quick calculation to give a fair comparison to gas vs dam:

    Assuming the same length of power lines,

    The natural gas plant costs $70.000 to provide 100 MWh at $7 per MWh.
    That gives it a running cost of $700 per hour, or $16.800 per day at full capacity.
    On top of that, fixed costs of $1400 per day, giving a total daily cost of $18.200

    The natural dam costs $105.000 to provide 60 MWh. To compare fairly to the gas plant: 100 MWh would cost a (theoretical) $175.000.
    But, the running costs are only $4.00 per MWh with a stable output, meaning no extra storage is needed unlike solar.
    At a (theoretical) output of 100 MWh, the running costs are $400 per hour, or $9600 per day at full capacity.
    The fixed costs are $480 per day, giving a total daily cost of $10.080 per day.

    This means that at full capacity, the dam saves $8020 per day. At lower capacity, the relative savings are even higher, since the daily costs start to factor in more.

    To put that in perspective: The dam requires $105.000 extra investment, but saves $8020 daily.
    The dam will therefore repay its increased investment in 13.1 days at full capacity, relative to the gas plant.
    After that, its all gravy.

    I have a strong feeling that the intention of this scenario is to start with a dam and build up more dams from there.

  7. the power line overlay is really good and give us viewers more information. I would love to see it all the time 🙂 thanks for the videos

  8. it's literally says for wind turbines is that "this building can only be placed in evelated areas " on the top of the screen XD
