Power Generator is a Neutral resource building in Ashes of the Singularity.
Capturable. Powers this sector.
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.
