Generators are major nodes that generate currency.
There are many different generator variants, each one separated into different trees. Generators produce currency (such as Entropy, Ideas, Fossils or Stardust).
Cost and Production
Generators cost a certain amount of Entropy or Idea points. Each Generator costs 15% more than the previous one of the same kind. This roughly quadruples the cost every 10 levels. The more powerful and efficient the Generators are, the more those Generators will cost.
The cost of purchasing N generators can be determine by the formula:
C = P(1.15N-1)/0.15
where C=cost, N=number of generators, and P=current price of generator.
Below is a list of Generators, their starting costs, and their production per second before any boosts are applied:
