Modular Power Heaters

Building Information:

Heaters are used to burn fuel to make heat. Currently there are 4 variants: Biomass, Coal, Solution & Nuclear.

Once the heater reaches 100℃ the attached Boiler will then start producing Steam, the temperature will reach 1050℃ for the nuclear heater. 750℃ for the solution heater and 500℃ for the rest.

The heater will produce CO₂, which will need to be handled by either venting through a chimney or accumulating into Carbon Dust. If the CO₂ is not resolved and fills the heater, it will stop producing heat and slowly cool.
