The Kinetic Wind Generator is an upgrade of the old Windmill. It generates energy from wind power which varies randomly, although certain factors can change this. Unlike the Windmill, the Kinetic Wind Generator will require maintenance in the form of the Rotors. These are needed to run the Kinetic Wind Generator. Once a Rotor is placed inside the GUI, the block is given sufficient space, and the current wind level is adequate for the current rotor, the Kinetic Wind Generator will begin to generate Kinetic Energy. This can be converted into EU by using a Kinetic Generator attached to the correct face(the black circle).

About Wind

First off, the wind strength of a particular area is affected by 3 factors: Height, Weather, and Chance. The higher up in the world you are, the higher the wind level. Below y64, there is no wind, and KWG's will not function at all. Weather will also give boosts; Rainy weather will give a 20% boost to normal wind levels, and stormy weather will give a 50% boost. The final factor of chance makes the wind strength vary randomly, however there is a limited range of variation.

The easiest way to check the current wind level in an area is by using a Windmeter. -WIP-

Rotors

The rotor equipped by the KWG will strongly affect the output of the generator. Each rotor has a different cost, durability, and wind requirement. This means that even the low-level Wood Rotor can be useful in some circumstances.
