A super simple way to modify your ship for automated energy/fuel management with YOLOL code in Starbase.

 

Introduction

You can easily modify your ship to save tons of energy and avoid replacing fuel rods every so often.

With a basic script coded in YOLOL, Starbase’s programming language, your ship generator will turn off and on automatically depending on battery charge and regulate how much output is currently necessary.

It’s a simple solution to avoid having to turn the generator on and off manually every time the ship stops moving.

What you need

 

  • A ship equipped with a generator and battery.
  • A YOLOL Chip Socket
  • A Basic YOLOL Chip
  • Cable and bolt tools.

You can get these from the auction house or craft them yourself at a crafting bench.

Debugging

You can always rename the device fields FuelChamberUnitRateLimit as GeneratorOutput and StoredBatteryPower as BatteryCharge for example if you want to.

In fact, they should have similar names in the YOLOL script and the battery and the generator fuel chamber installed on your ship.

To rename device fields, use the universal tool. Press u pointing at the device, then go to the data tab to edit.
