The F.U.E.L. Generator is a production structure featured in The Last Stand: Dead Zone.
Fabricated Universal Element Liquid Generator converts resources to Fuel. Needs restocking after collection.
The F.U.E.L. Generator produces Fuel over a period of 46 hours, which is stored in the Generator until it reaches full capacity. Once it reaches full capacity, production is stopped and will not resume until the Fuel is collected. Once collected, it will be added to the compound's stock of Fuel. Upgrades to this structure improve its temporary storage capacity and production speed.
Even if the Generator was not at full capacity when the Fuel was collected, it must be restocked with Wood, Metal and Cloth before it can produce more. It will also need to be restocked if the Fuel was stolen during a raid. Upgrading the generator does not restock it, moreover, the raised cost applies, so it's best to restock the generator before upgrading it. Books that affect repair costs also affect the restock costs.
- Indoor and outdoor placement.
- Can be scavenged from during raids.
- Occupies area of 5x5 squares bordered by walking area.
- Provides Low Cover.
- Collecting from this structure when at full capacity has a chance of providing extra resources.
