Balance the cost of thermal structures


Recommended Posts

A normal floor tile:200kg.

A normal pipe:100kg.

A normal vent:25kg.

A thermal tile:400kg,2 times of a normal tile.

A thermal pipe:400kg,4 times of a normal pipe.

A thermal vent:400kg,16times of a normal pipe.

Doesn't make any sense...

Shouldn't thermal pipe be 200kg and thermal vent be 50kg?

The reason for the extra mass is to insulate better. Higher mass takes more time to heat up so it will stay longer at a stabile temperature.

That said it gets really painful when you start making superinsulation. The reed fiber cost is a bit too high.

I mean,since thermal tile is as 2 times as heavy than normal tile,shouldn't thermal pipe and vent be as 2 times as their normal versions?:-(
