But then, as any schoolchild will tell you, Simlumbus set off to sail around the world in his three ships; the Simna, the Simta & the Santa Simria. He sailed off the edge, into the Abyss and was never heard from again. And that's why nothing is named after him today. With the modern invention of aviation and orthographic gaming views, we can now clearly see the edge of our world. Today, we never attempt to navigate beyond it without the protection of The Yellow Arrow. Some scientists... and far too many philosophers, have pondered as to what lies at the bottom of The Abyss. But even today, no one really knows and most of us just don't care. Capitalizing on this general uncaring spirit, Pegadyne Industries has developed the new Garbage Chute... a small & affordable refuse disposal system that simply tosses our trash over the side. Why allow it to pile up when we can just as easily chuck it into the Abyss? Oh sure, the environmentalists are all in a huff... claiming that the Abyss will be ruined for future generations. And of course, a few attorneys have filed lawsuits claiming to represent the 'Denizens of The Abyss'. But the primary concern has been focused on what actually happens to the trash. One popular theory is that it simply burns up in the fires of Hell. But federally subsidized research, supported by historic maps that clearly state that "Here There Be Dragons...", indicates that these dragons consider garbage to be a 'delicacy' and delightfully gobble it up with no complaint.

The garbage overlay has a helpful bar showing your garbage generation vs incineration rate. I have observed that you can be in the red in terms of capacity, with no garbage problems. In short there was something funny going on with incinerators and they work better than they "should". This screenshot reveals plainly enough what is going on: This incinerator's stores are full, at 400000/400000, it has 19 trucks out, a truck is just about to enter with a 100% load, what happens to the 20,000 garbage on the truck? With no room to store it, the garbage simply disappears along with the truck. In fact during the course of capturing this screenshot I would estimate the incinerator was "disappearing" garbage at a much higher rate than it was burning it, probably about 15 whole truck loads were simply disappeared. In a large city incinerators go through a cycle. While below about 350,000 they send out trucks nearly non-stop, as long as they determine (somehow) that there is garbage to pick up and that they are the facility to pick up that garbage. Eventually the trucks start coming back and bringing in garbage at a far faster rate than it can be burned, at that point the facility will quickly fill its stores to 400,000 and cease sending out new trucks. The facility will be maintained at near 400,000 until nearly all the trucks have come back in, during this time the majority of garbage will be disposed of by "annihilation". Eventually all the trucks will have come home, and only 1 or 2 trucks will be in use. At this point, the incinerator will burn its stores down below about 350,000, and the cycle will repeat, with the trucks in use increasing to 27 again. Hence incinerators cycle between 1 and 27 trucks in use and between 300,000 and 400,000 stored garbage, primarily burning garbage while the truck in use count is increasing, and primarily annihilating garbage while the truck in use count is decreasing. The strategic ramifications of this is that incinerators are capable of eliminating significantly more than 48000 garbage per week (probably 25%-50% more) and incinerators eliminate garbage much more effectively when the city is slightly understocked with incinerators, motivating them to send out their full compliment of 27 trucks. Also in the the above screenshot, the two incinerators actually have synchronized cycles, when one incinerator is at minimum truck, the other one is at maximum trucks, it's probably not a coincidence, as both incinerators probably feel responsible for the same area of the city and when one incinerator is unable to collect garbage due to full stores, that extra motivates the other one to send out all its trucks. Note: Landfill trucks do not annihilate garbage. When a landfill is set to "empty", the trucks will drive to an incinerator, once there, they will unload as much as the incinerator can store and drive on to another incinerator if necessary. An incinerator can only disappear the garbage on it's own trucks. Landfills are nearly entirely incapable of exploiting this trick.
