Storage Compactor

Recommended Posts

2 questions

1 - how long the eggs last inside the compactor because I wanted to keep eggs from shine bug until I could create a farm for them.But they seem to disappear after some time. (I'm pretty sure they were not cooked since I only broke the hatch eggs).

2 - Is there any way I can keep bleach, slime and oxyhelite without the gas coming out of it?

1) 10 cycles. Eggs lose 10% vitality per cycle they're in storage. They then crack into raw eggs and egg shells on their own as if you had used an egg cracker. Incidentally, if you heat up raw eggs to 71C they turn into omelettes on their own without needing to be cooked on a grill.

2) Yes, keep the room pressured above 1800g/tile gas pressure, or submerge the storage compactors in a liquid.

I like to store wild shine bugs in the barracks early game, easy decor

Just build a compactor, transport the eggs, deconstruct the compactor

eu pensava que como a maioria das coisas compactadores não funcionam de baixo da agua.

Storage compactors most certainly do work under water :D

" Just build a compactor, transport the eggs, deconstruct the compactor "

Another option is to just de-select the checkbox next to the type of critter egg that you don't want in the storage compactor, and that egg will be ejected out in front of the storage compactor. You can immediately re-select the checkbox if you want, but eventually a duplicant will put the egg back into the storage compactor unless you have it set to "sweep only".

" Storage compactors most certainly do work under water "

I like to keep one or two submerged in my "interior base" water supply, set to only allow ice (never polluted ice) and priority 4. This way duplicants will gather ice when they're not doing anything else which keeps the water nice and cold.

I didn't mean to imply deconstructing the compactor was the only way to drop the eggs

only reason I do it is to make room for the cots/beds I plan to build

wouldn't building ice sculptures in the water work better?

the temperature transfer happens almost instantaneous and you get 400kg extra water in your water supply
