  • Even though the Power Plant is divided into three different buildings, most players tend to put them together like in Springfield.
  • Although you have to buy all three items upon completion of the quest chain, the characters only perform their tasks in the Control Building and the Cooling Towers parts of the Power Plant. This means that you can sell the Reactor Core without losing jobs or characters.
