The Electrical Generator is not currently paint-able, however this object may be re-mapped to include paint regions in a future update.

For more information on Paint Regions and how to use them, please view the Blue Coloring.png Dye, Paintbrush.png Paintbrush, or Spray Painter.png Spray Painter pages.

Scorched Earth[edit | edit source]

  • Electrical Generators lose durability while turned on. Placing the Electrical Generator inside an Adobe Building with Air Conditioners does not stop this decay. They need to be repaired around every real-time day or the generator will be destroyed. A generator placed on the same power grid as a wind turbine can be set to power on when the turbines shut off.
  • Electrical generator's lose durability significantly slower when they are not in render.
  • While on an official online server, Electrical Generators will not lose health so long as no tribe member is online and the server has offline damage prevention.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • It does not work if submerged.

Gallery[edit | edit source]

A simple demonstration of how electricity works in ARK. The cables near the activated generator glow yellow and transmit power to the outlets. Objects that require electricity near the outlet will automatically connect to it.
