Surface Temperature


Recommended Posts

New player here.

Played the game for some 100-200 hours now and what seems strange to me is that the surface is heating up indefinetly. I think it should cool down when the sun is not shining.

Our moon is 130C during the day but -150 degrees during night so the heat radiates away but on our asteroid it does not. Why?

Imo it should act similar and give us a way to "destroy" large amounts of heat without relying on the magic steam turbine

Not indefinite. The surface settles at around 300 celsius. All the heat is coming from meteors and radiative heating does not exist in the game.

ONI does not do heat radiation. The surface is only heating up from hot Regolith being deposed there.

why not? all the heat deletion methods in the game are unrealistic. Dont understand why they not consider the most common way heat is disposed in space. Even the ISS is radiating its heat away https://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2001/ast21mar_1

The game is just not simulating everything. They decided they don`t want to simulate heat radiation and the place where it`s most apparent is space. It caused quite a few issues in the past. Maybe the devs will consider adding it in the future. For now we need to find other means to cool machinery on the surface.

This is a game, not a Physics simulator. It has tons of unrealistic aspects, probably far more than aspects were it tries to emulate real Physics. Also, it needs to run real-time and that imposes some extreme limits.

The radiator mod is pretty realistic using equations and everything, but you have to use the reverse Aquatuner and liquid aluminium as coolant to use it to effectively cool an industrial brick. 300 Celcius just isn't hot enough to radiate all of that heat gained from the meteors. Plus, the meteors come in at a flat 300 celcius, so it cannot get hotter than that.

The game literally starts by printing three duplicate human beings from genetic hooze... but it's the lack of radiating heat in space that strikes you as unrealistic?

20kg 30kg heavy duplicants... which can carry up to over 2 tons of material.

And that breathe 10x the oxygen of a human 4x the weight. And do not age. 

I think some people just do not get the nature of ONI. They see some Physics-inspired mechanisms and, without doing any kind of actual evaluation, immediately conclude that ONI is aiming to be a realistic Physics simulation. Then, depending on their level of insight into actual Physics, they pick something they find "unrealistic" and complain loudly. No idea what triggers this behavior-pattern, but I expect it leads to problems with the real world as well.

Hell, they use Time Lord technology get to get 2 tons of liquid into a bottle less than half the size of a Dupe. :)

Not to mention it can drive a steam turbine and produce power just by lying on the floor, vaporize blobs of liquid just passing by, but dups are fine handling it.

Of course dupes can handle this fine, as their melting point is 9726.85 °C. ;)
