I suggest a tier 2 foundation made with a combination of components( example: concrete,reinforced iron plates (or heavy modular frames), and quickwire). The new foundation would include electric conductivity. There would be a special foundation piece that has a electric connection post that allows you to connect a power pole or machine directly to the foundation.
The foundation would have to be connected to a power pole on the electric grid to provide power to the foundation. All tier 2 foundations that touch each other would carry the electric current through the floor. Limiting the connector panels to only 1 connection initially would promote the continued use of power poles, or having to spend additional resources to build a foundation connection for each machine.
- The "connector" foundation panel could have multiple levels (MK1, MK2, MK3). MK1 connector panels could be limited to 1 connection, MK2 could have 3 or 4, an so on. This would give some progression to the electrical floor.
- Alternative recipes for the foundation pieces like wire instead of quick wire, heavy modular frames vs modular frames and reinforced iron plates, ect.
- Floor lights, the floor will already have electricity so why not add some lights to a special foundation piece.
