The simple generator is a machine that can be built on the generator hotspot in the Invention Guild basement at level 60 Invention. The generator is required to power all of the other machines in the basement and cannot be removed.

The generator provides two main functions: it provides a power allotment that determines how many and which other machines can be placed in the basement, and converts divine charge items into machine charge for the other machines to consume.

Power allotment can be thought of as 'floor space' for the other machines. Machines require a specific amount to be built or upgraded. The simple generator provides 100 power allotment.

Machine charge is generated by depositing divine charges into the generator, granting 3,000 machine charge per divine charge. Charges can be withdrawn at any time. The small generator can hold up to 175,000 charge.

At level 80 Invention the generator can be upgraded to the large generator.
