Timberborn: water wheel - where to build? Timberborn - guide, tips

The Water Wheel in the game Timberborn produces power. From this guide page you will learn where to build water wheels.

Last update: Thursday, July 7, 2022

In Timberborn, some production buildings require power. A water wheel is one way to power buildings. Our game guide includes some of the most important tips on how to properly connect a water wheel to a workshop using power shafts and where to build a water wheel.

Amount of power

Some buildings need to be connected to a power source, and you can check the optimal amount of power by hovering your cursor over the selected workshop - Timberborn: water wheel - where to build? - FAQ - Timberborn Guide

Some buildings need to be connected to a power source, and you can check the optimal amount of power by hovering your cursor over the selected workshop. The water wheel is one of the cheapest sources of energy, and if placed in the right spot, it may even power several buildings.

Water wheel - where to put it?

The water wheel should be placed at a depth not exceeding 1 water level - Timberborn: water wheel - where to build? - FAQ - Timberborn Guide

The water wheel should be placed at a depth not exceeding 1 water level. The water wheel will produce the most energy when placed in water with a strong current. The best way to locate the right spot is to seek out waves in the water.

You will find strong water currents at waterfalls and where the water bends as it shifts its course.

Water wheel - how to connect to a building?

The water wheel can be built at a riverbank and if it directly connects to a workshop, said building will immediately receive power.

When you place the water wheel at a considerable distance from your workshops, you then need to connect them to each other with shafts. The game offers several types of shafts, making it possible to create connections even between different levels.

Shafts can be placed on platforms or routed through the river bed - Timberborn: water wheel - where to build? - FAQ - Timberborn Guide

Shafts can be placed on platforms or routed through the river bed. In the early stages of the game, you won't have the materials required to build high power shafts, so instead purchase platforms with science points and use them to route power to the workshops.

Your beavers can move in the water as long as it isn't deeper than 1 level, so build them stairs to the riverbed to allow them to assemble all of the necessary elements, or begin building platforms from the shore.

  1. In the tab with the water icon you will find a stream gauge. This building measures the water flow, informing you where the water current is the strongest. This will help you decide the best locations for water wheels.

  1. If one building is connected to several water wheels via a proper arrangement of shafts, buildings adjacent to it will also be supplied. This will save you space and materials needed to build separate shafts leading to each building.
  2. Don't build water wheels one next to the other. It's better to take a good look at the river first and see where the strongest current is and then connect them together with shafts, or use stream gauges and wait for the results.
