  • Insulated pipes/vents are now blue in the Plumbing/Ventilation overlay, rather than orange, to differentiate them more from radiant pipes/vents

That seems like a very good idea.

Excellent, thanks. Will start testing that immediately!

Priceless !!!

  • Fixed the melting temperature of solid Methane

 

@mathmanican well, as you said I think it should fixe the diamond tile disappearing bug I had in previous 3-PONG designs.

"Underway" text on starmap screen is now localizable

Thx

Now this String have a problem. all my duplicant have wrong infomation, all of them show 1 clycle age and the way to show their status is inverted "Age: cycles 1" (Edad: ciclo 1)

I for one enjoy having free metals in many circumstances, but the chunks do mess with some of my builds.

So we get a metal refinery without needing high temps. Thanks for the find. I assume this one will get a little more love.

Hardcore one. Should get an update very soon.

I wonder did they fix micrograms of metal on conveyors never exchanging temperatures? Because I have lot of hanging situations when taming metal volcanoes with temp sensors on conveyors and there are few mcg packets sitting still at 900C+.

And here I though my dupes were just getting lazy in cleaning up the debris ;-)

That is to say, I do observe the same issue. 2x100kg per opening cycle seems to be what gets generated.

Probably before the weekend. Need to build many, many doors fast! On a completely unrelated note, this also works with Thermium doors....

Fix solid flaking temperature deletion. Uses the actual energy required for the melt, as well as the SHC of the transition element.

I like the fix. I just checked it. No more doomsday freezer. I can still melt solids partially, but it requires the right amount of heat (from a cursory glance).

I guess regolith flaking and abysalite flaking for almost no heat lost are things of the past.  :wickerbottomthanks:

I spent the day working on mass deletion in steam turbines. Something weird is going on. 

Spoiler

I was hoping to eat this bug up for dinner, but I think it ate me instead. Save/Load bugs are practically intractable on the player end.

Does this mean that the amount of heat used for flaking is calculated by the child's SHC?
In other words, is Abyssalite → Tungsten advantageous for flaking, and Regolith → Magma is advantageous for normal melting?
I was a little confused about this specification.
I was pretty sure I thought the developers were adjusting flaking to get the same heat consumption as normal melting.

Achievement "Not Okay But Pretty Cool"  still bugged.    I have buildings under 6k  and nothing happened.  at 6k even..


Saved and reload.  No check off.

 

reloaded 2nd time and it works.

I haven't played with those two, but I did play with ice/hydrogen. Water's SHC was used for flaking, so you're better off just melting ice regularly . I guess it's time to check out abysalitte (and getting tungsten could still be viable).

various bugs are always interesting

I added a bug report for the gas temp swapping bug that afflicts steam turbines and can be abused to make a new borg cube. I didn't see one for it, and figured adding a report may help you track it and record the status.

 

@Ipsquiggle, I also added a bug report on how phase change temperature reductions are affecting too many cells, resulting in even more heat deletion.  Neither the bug above, or this one, are intuitive in designing machines. I hope they both can be eliminated so that we don't have to design around them.

Yeah, Abyssalite flaking requires roughly 3.5% of energy it would take to actually melt Abyssalite

This is right on par with 0.136/4 = 3.4%. Thanks for sharing. 

@Ipsquiggle, was this the intended plan, or do we need more modifications?  Does the energy balancing need to take into account both SHC's, the parent SHC up to melting point, and the child SHC for the remaining 3K?  If this was intentional, we can work with that.

You did decimate the hydrogen/ice combo (since SHC of water is much higher than ice). I'll have to play around more and see what monstrosities we can produce. :)   I'll look for some worst case scenarios (abysalite is a good example).

If the developers are modifying the flaking further and the advantage of tungsten production from Abyssalite diminishes,
As a next alternative, I would pour hot liquid niobium into a Germ Sensor to produce tungsten.

https://streamable.com/e8hz97

Germ Sensor (Tungsten 25kg + Plastic 50kg) + Heat → Liquid Tungsten 75kg
In other words, it converts plastic into tungsten.

Since the Germ Sensor is repeatedly melted and installed, it is not possible to building a system that does not require user operation, but the amount of heat used is quite practical.
The Germ Sensor's Heat Capacity is equivalent to 5 kg of tungsten, so the heat of melting 5 kg of tungsten can produce 75 kg of liquid tungsten.

 

Perhaps, regarding Heat Capacity of the building made from multiple elements including Germ Sensor, it may be an unintended bug, so I will post it on the bug tracker.
