Power Generator is a Neutral resource building in Ashes of the Singularity.

Background[edit | edit source]

Capturable. Powers this sector.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

This section requires expansion. You can help Ashes of the Singularity Wiki by expanding it.

Power Generators are key to establishing control of a region and supply lines across the map. In order to receive the resources from a region, the player must control the power generator - the ownership of any nearby deposits are slaved to the building, and will be converted together.

Any ground unit within the vicinity of a neutral of hostile generator will release nanites to gradually convert it to your side, as long as they are not in combat. NB: It is possible to have an engineer simultaneously convert a power generator as it builds, e.g. a nearby extractor. This is particularly useful in the opening moments before neutral defenders spawn.

To increase the income of a region, Amplifiers can be built upon Power Generators. Global abilities can also be used to further boost this income at the cost of IconQuanta.pngQuanta.
