Chetherite as Fuel for Power Generators


#1

Hello folks,

Not sure if this has either already been suggested and denied, or already in the game and the wiki just hasn’t been updated in a while, but here is my small suggestion. I would think that in addition to chetherite being used as the fuel for hyperdrives, that it could also be used for power generators. In my opinion, I don’t know how good it should be as a fuel, but it if I were to choose, it would be a little less powerful than uranium with a little less cooldown. Maybe 8000 power and 1500 cooldown.

Hopefully this didn’t sound too stupid,

Meh. Chetherite is a valuable resource as it is and making it more valuable just makes economic tycoons more overpowered.

That is a fair point, Xar, and to be honest I don’t know a fair way around it.

I considered it, with the price of chetherite is at its lowest 14.5/piece last I checked. Then again, if I recall, pardon me if I’m wrong, doesn’t one of the new planets contain chetherite? If so, that would also cut the prices down due to more supply, but I am no economic analyst. I tried to ignore the economic aspect of it, believing that the economy was player-controlled and that prices can crash/skyrocket any second. As you said, increasing the value of chetherite would just make the tycoons more overpowered, but was mainly focusing on the usage of it, not the price. I just noticed there was somewhat of a gap between the low-power low-cooldown fuels and the high-power high-cooldown fuels, so I thought chetherite could fill that gap.

Hopefully this response also doesn’t sound too stupid,
