Got provided to build Solar Plant but have Hoover Dam

Postby KrissussUrbanus » Sat Aug 25, 2018 7:32 pm

Hi, if you have Hoover Dam, you get a black "X" on any power plant to not build because it is redundant. But not on Solar Plants. But they are also redundant. Any no. Also on same continent. BTW, is this rule working, that Hoover Dam is only working on same continent? Hoover Dam effect seems to work on every city.

Version i play: 2.6-qt

Which ruleset are you using? I think Solar Plant is not made completely redundant with Hydro Plant/Hoover Dam in most rulesets as it provides more effective pollution reduction. Also, not many rulesets define Hydro Plant effects to be only continent-wide.

Default

Yes, the help text say: Solar Plant eliminates all pollution generated by production in that city, while pollution with Hydro Plant is 50%.

Did not know that. Always thought Hydro Plant already is the "cleanest" :)
