Units of electrical power?
« on: April 25, 2009, 08:19:03 PM »
Might I ask - in what units is electrical power measured in Simutrans? Some of the numbers seem very high. Is it kilowatts, or some arbitrary unit specific to Simutrans?

Ahh. Thank you. So - how many cents does one get for transmitting a megawatt?

No idea. There are no real units somewhere involved.

Internal the unit is cents*2048. But no relation with kWh is there. Production of factories prs ms is the actual consumption at 100%. (See leitung2.cc pumpe_t::sync_step and senke_t::sync_step).

Ahh, I see. I had looked at those methods. The reason that I'm asking is that I am trying to finish off the city electrification feature, and want to work out how to calibrate what a city consumes.
