To craft an electrical generator is actually not that expensive. You will need:
25 Metal Ingot
In order to get power to your equipment you will need electric cables and an outlet. The outlet has a pretty generous range. Just place a light or whatever within that range, and it automatically send out a cord to power it. The generator runs on gas, but seems to sip fuel, at least in single player. On a server it will have to use gas even while you are not there if you want to keep your refrigerators running. The lighting I put in really lights up the barn, compared to standing torches, which look cool, but require a lot of maintenance.

The second part of the video shows my cool Ichthyisoraus and its untimely death after being swarmed by angler fish and other nasties. And that is all I want to say about that. In the next episode I put together an underwater army of megladons and Ichthies.
