Ingame Description

"Generates energy for the colony."

Mills are the basic and primary producers of energy for the settlement. Mills have to be separated by at least 4 cells from other mills, including Advanced Mills.

Mills can be upgraded to Advanced Mills, once the technology has been researched at a Foundry.

Strategy and Tips

  • It is most efficient to build Mills diagonally parallel to each other.
  • Mills are very economical energy providers with low maintenance costs and low cost to build, but are they are inefficient with respect to space and workers used. Because no other energy source is nearly as efficient, this creates strong pressure on the player to continue to expand in order to be able to provide sufficient energy to their growing colony.
