Small Med and Large Batteries

Recommended Posts

Do we need a large?

Medium is not really worth getting unless you're critically short of lithium as 8x Small on a Medium Storage has a similar capacity as the medium battery but greater output and the same footprint/physical size. By the time you really would need a large it would probably be easier/cheaper to get RTGs.

If there was no RTG and we had modules that had huge power requirements; no RTG and you needed power that had no way to get power other than generators (no Solar, Wind); or you had to move power into a location like the (spoiler) Alien Satellite then perhaps then... but until something like that is met I don't quite see the point.

So then perhaps a remake of the batteries entirely? a medium battery should not be out done by 8 small batteries hooked to a medium storage. As for a large battery it could always be a stand alone battery with its own platform to connect directly to your base.

Well, it's much more costly, so it actually can be better... Twice as good is ok in my opinion

We need alternative power storage that should make a difference. right now its like getting 8 9 volt batteries and they are out doing a car battery

we should have different ways to store and distribute the power to the bases we are currently able to build and power management would be useful with having different storage for power that actually be worth it

I'm not disagreeing with you, but all that could be done via balancing what we already have. How is having a large battery going to make the game better?

If it doesn't cost more than the medium it's not balanced, if it costs much more than the medium the RTG will still likely be better. Nanocarbon while annoying to make once you have the ability to do so isn't terribly hard.

Rebalancing the whole of the power generation storage system would be the way round that. Either make the RTG significantly more expensive or massively reduce it's output. Then balance Medium storage to being 9x whatever the same physical space of smalls can produce/store. But that still doesn't make the case for a large battery... You'd have to see how the new rebalanced system worked before knowing if it was even needed.
