[Exploit] The Toilet Prison: using a Dupe to create a 2kg/s 37°C Polluted Water Geyser

Thank you for sharing your find!
After a little modification (2nd water sieve and smaller door spacing), the circuit produces 3.7 kg/s of water:

Kudos to the Prison Architect! 

I had to get rid of 200 dupes due to too high resource consumption. In batches of 10 I led them in to a steam chamber and made them take the lead helmets off. Other dupes arrived to carry the corpses out, burried the them and then it was their turn. After doing it a few times I started to feel very sad...:chargrined:

Every human and creature life... and life itself should be of value :apple:

Nice build, but how do you go from 2kg/s to 3.7kg/s? It's the exact same space between doors (it's a 6 cells width room).

The 2kg/s output I mentionned was after taking back what's needed to feed lavatories, and is specific to a 0 Athletics Dupe (I forgot to specify that, I'll edit).

For the output, things that should make a difference are:

  • the Dupes Athletics. Faster movement means more lavatories use, but a Dupe too fast might go through doors before the Duplicant Sensor activates to close the door.
  • your game performance. Since AI has a different behavior depending on game performance, it will have an impact (good or bad? I'm not too sure, I'd say bad since AI takes more time taking decision when the game is slow)
  • any modification with the automation. If you can reliably interrupt the Dupe more often in a way that reproduce the bug, you can have a better output. I chose to keep the automation simple, I really don't care about optimizing that build any further, as my hope is that it will get fixed, not to exploit it in survival.
  • having a shorter room. But any shorter than that might run into issues because of overlapping Duplicant Sensors or Dupe going through doors too fast.

It is possible that it only works with such performance in the sandbox/debug. Similarly, there is no desire to check it further. I'm generally against torturing dupes.

I think the world designers have done a good job if some players perhaps question their own behaviour and game actions ( extincting critters, torturing dupes ) as players for example could be thinking "I need food urgently, mhh, should I really make all critters extinct?". Personally, I like to have things crawling around in the base, it makes the world more lively and lovely - On the other hand creatures take down the game speed and perhaps I need food urgently in certain situations.

I think it depends on how many critters we're talking about, it's not like you're gonna have thousands of critters. Eh, oh well:

I really don't know how many critters it takes to slow down a pc now. I would guess it has to do with pathing.

As i remember if you have duplicant checkpoint that always automation close, dupe still pathing toward toilet without getting close to it, so theorically you can make super sort room like this.image.png.e1c7e122d15f0bad6e8f45d3f3d5b20b.png

If this work, automation also become much more simp, since you no longer need dupe sensor.

Wow, that's quite the bug.

In regards to the fridge, any build seeking out to be so exploity shouldn't have one. Put the food in an unpowered fridge in a CO2 pit for now. If this bug is still around when the new food mechanics come from Spaced Out, then of course it's best to have a freezer room somewhere and drop in food at a steady rate as needed.

The Toilet Prison, wow, right behind the infamous Suffocation Hotel. What other dupe torture exploits exist out there waiting to be discovered?

Is that an exploit? If so, is it still current? If the answer is yes to both, you picked my curiosity.

Unfortunately search results don't return any relevant result to that, any chance you could link me the right way?

 

As for other exploits involving Dupes, I thought hard about it but couldn't think of anything else that could be exploited. But you never know when a bug is going to surface that can be exploited...

It's mentioned in the Francis John's 141 duplicant run.

There is also a dedicated video with a gas mask version made by Brothgar.

 

Very simple solution to both of these could be for duplicants to consume external oxygen while wearing gas masks or suits (if the exploit extends to that), make the oxygen bar go up just as fast as it goes down when duplicants go gasping for breath and have them consume double the oxygen when gasping for breath. Efficiency is lost as intended, but no exploits are created in the process.

That sounds like something I discovered/bought to attention. My reddit posts on the subject:
 

 

Both exploits are still active in Spaced Out but the Oygen Mask is even more better than Atmo Suit since it doesn't mess with their peeing. Suffice to say using either exploit is ludicrous broken for long duration space missions where the dupe doesn't have any real work to do.
