Mod request: Supplimental Diffusers

Recommended Posts

I poked around a bit for this already existing, please point me at it if it's already been made.

In the late game, we can manufacture both oxylite and liquid oxygen.  Simply put, I'm looking for a mod that adds oxygen diffusers that use these resources.  In the case of the LOX diffuser, it would need to be piped in, as well as have higher power requirements to explain output at a reasonable temperature.

I get what you want, but what for? LOX is --183°C. You can make it a gas again just 1° above, but that means ~-180°C in the room.

Ease of use. The LOX one would output at the same rate and temperature as the algae one.  Honestly, this is the kind of mod I'd just do on my own but I know precisely nothing about non-script programming.

Sure, but whats the point in making LOX with lots of power to cool, to just evaporate the stuff? 

Maybe take a look at the piped electrolyzer mod, maybe you can adapt this.

Can somebody explain why I would create oxygen at 75 C, then cool it to -183 C and then electrically heat it back to 20 C? Ease of use seems odd too since you would have to pump oxygen, filter it (presumably) before you can start cooling it. Why not just add a vent on the oxygen pipe? Maybe start by making the oxygen go through a water tank of 20 C water using radiant pipes to make sure you have the right temperature. Just using the gas is way more simple and easy than making LOX in the first place.

My thought too. If you want to pipe, then pipe water, split it to hydrogen and oxygen where you need it, and be happy. It makes no sense to pipe LOX halfway the world. Besides, you would have to keep a close eye on the pipes. They heat quicker as we like, and then they burts, because LOX becomes oxygen again...
