Besides, it’s compact. Fits in everywhere and it does really well as soon as you have gwps, which is way earlier in the game than this depiction. And isos can be a waste of space with anything other than Thorium or higher cells.
And for water distribution, there is a huge gap in georgeklam’s layout. It’s a really nice layout but that fact makes it questionable. I’ve tried it and in my current setup, most generators presently have 4.6 billion water left while some have only 765 million water left.
georgemklam’s layout is counterintuitive but it is in fact 2 gwp’s to each generator – the pumps in the back can use pipes to feed through to the pumps nearer the generators. It just requires a few levels higher of max water element which aren’t too expensive compared to other upgrades. Besides shared iso’s, another benefit of the setup is the lack of water pipes – only 1 water pipe to each 2 generators. A+++ would build again
