    Thanks so much for recommending me! I've had so much fun with Eco.

    Most games have combat PvP if they have any at all, but Eco provides some really interesting opportunities for social and economic PvP, which I love. It's really unlike anything else I've played. The systems it has are deep enough that I can do pretty much anything I can think of with the economy, which I really appreciate. I'm really looking forward to following Eco's development!

    Also if anyone does jump into the playlist, it does take us a while to get into Eco and figure out what's going on, so you might want to start around the episode 11 mark!

    I've found the answer! For anyone else who has the same problem, whilst the screw pump status screen implies it needs electrical power, it actually runs on mechanical power.

    The only ways I can see of generating electricity in the game are combustion generators, wind turbines, and solar generators.

    Both wind turbines and solar generators require circuits, which require substrates, which require epoxy, which requires oil. However, oil pumps need to be powered in order to work, so I can't get electricity using either of these until I already have electricity.

    Similarly, the combustion generator requires pistons, which are made in the screw press. The screw press needs power to work, so I can't make that until I have electricity.

    So as you can see, I can't make any of these three ways of generating electricity until I already have a power grid. Therefore there must be some other way to generate power that I must be missing...

    Any help would really appreciated! I'm finding this rather frustrating. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious

    I'm so glad you enjoyed it! We all get on really well, but I think Eco itself really facilitates our interactions too. Thanks so much for watching <3

    This game is nastier and more vicious than PvP games with actual combat. At least, it is when I play it. I love it.

    Hopefully it's okay to post videos here! I've been playing on a server with friends for a few months now, and whilst we started out all bumbling and friendly, things are really starting to escalate. Negotiations, sieges, imprisonment, election drama... Plus I'll be first against the wall in the inevitable communist revolution.
