oxidizer instructions not included

From the patch notes. Only the type of oxidizer matters for the ratio:

  • Fertilizer: 100% efficiency,
  • Oxylite 200% efficiency,
  • Liquid Oxygen 400% efficiency

 

  • Big Ups 1

Does this mean: i need half the oxylite amount for the petroleum amount? Or half of the Fertilizer amount? how much Fertilizer is then neccesary to relative to the petroleum? Or does it mean: Oxylite makes the rocket double as fast with fertilizer?

Yes that was roughly what I expected. Now I have a rocket ready that has 900kg petroleum and 890kg oxylite on board (the dupes fail to fill it up completely) but the checklist says that there is not enough oxidizer on board to make it there and back (eight hexagons away  - 16 round trip).   if I need only half the oxylite to petroleum ratio, then shouldn't it rather complain about the petroleum being insufficient?

Doesn't it show fuel unchecked and red?

I don't think you can reach 8 hexes (not counting orbit hex) with a petroleum engine and 900kg of fuel. You would need 300kg more (150kg per tile)

okay, now i added another fuel module. the rocket has now 1800l petroleum on board, 890kg oxylite. The fuel warning is now silenced, but oxylite is still short.  if it is 150kg petroleum per tile, a round trip 8 tiles away would require 2400kg petroleum, so that does not make sense, as the rocket reports now having enough fuel.

I found some hidden infos in the rocket details dialog, which opened me that my rocket can only do 11 tiles. so no way to make it there. I would have to have a midway station and refuel
