  1. Using wolframite gas-permable tiles under the super computer and having more air space around it seems to work pretty well - watched Skye Storm's LP series where he used this method and it never overheated. He didn't have his anywhere near the ice biome.
  2. The "rescue" requires a medical cot, not a standard one. Building a memorial should allow you to remove a corpse, and there are multiple ways to cool a computer - extra space around it and Wolframite gas-permable tiles is the most elegant I've seen. I think just a storage compactor with ice & snow stored in it will work too.
  3. Overlays are the special views where you can see your piping, oxygen concentrations and so on. options at upper right.
  4. Check the priority of your new food storage container.
  5. Meant to ask you on YouTube, but I figured I would just ask you here.  Hope that's ok?

    Since you did your base series with a lot of narcoleptics, did you ever lose one because they fell asleep somewhere with no oxygen (under water, high CO2, etc)?   Or if they did fall asleep there, did they immediately wake back up?

      the narcoleptic sleep is so short so it really doesnt matter where they sleep, they tend to wake up in time to get out of any bad situation.

      Okay, thanks!

  6. Yeah, CrypticFox ran into that in one of his videos. Pretty weird, after he set them to be the owner of the medical cot, a dup came and picked up the hurt one, carried them a short distance and then dropped them and ran off. Took two or three folks to finally shuttle them over.
  7. True, that's why I hesitated even mentioning it.
  8. I think they normally eat chlorine, don't they? Converting it to polluted O2?
  9. You do realize that coal burns at nearly 2000 degrees C, right? Not 200. I mean, I hate to bring real world values into this simulation, but coal burns HOT. Even ordinary "charcoal" briquettes burn over 350 degrees C. If we do talk some real-world sense, coal generators should actually have a water intake and flow out, with a significant temp boost between the two. They work by burning coal to turn water into steam, using that steam to turn a turbine which is attached to a generator, that makes the sparky stuff (AKA, electricity). Inside the generator, a fixed amount of water is held, turning to steam reaching temperatures over 1000 degrees F and pressures up to 3500 psi, and is then condensed back into water using a significant amount of cool water coming up (and dumps the hot water out). By the way, nuclear power plants work the same way, they just have a different heating element. This game makes us do the cooling/condenser part manually, external to the machine itself. Apologies for switching the conversion in mid-post, it was simpler to work from the source I found.
  10. Well, it seems to look right. Maybe deconstruct the filter and re-build it (one of them, as a test)? It's obviously leaving the pumps okay, so it's got to be the filters.
  11. By "you kid", I think he actually meant "you are kidding" - different meaning.
  12. How did you look? A few folks have said some geysers are hidden as buried objects, but I've not seen visual confirmation of that.
  13. IT'S BEAUTIFUL! (said like the French guy in Raiders, right before the Ark melts his face). Amazing work, dude!
  14. Yeah, CrypticFox had this happen in a video. You have to assign them to a medical cot, and another dup will come pick them up and carry them to the medical cot. It was very weird, but cool at the same time, thanks devs!
  15. Wow, that seems a little excessive. Maybe these unlimited steam geysers need a bit of a limit. What's the temp of the water?
