spinningtime7 Posted September 3, 2021 Share Posted September 3, 2021 Firstly Hello, I am new to this forum and I am enjoying ONI Spaced out so far. However, there are certain things that need to be balanced in the Spaced out Content. I will be talking about the resin, the diamond press and the rocket engines. Experiment 52B (Resin) So the main way to get resin in this DLC (to make visco-gel for liquid lock) is to feed 100.000 kCal to that gluttonous tree. I understand that the purpose of that tree is to act as a calorie sink but that forces us to design an infrastructure solely for the sake of getting sufficient amount of resin. so I need a tank containing 150 fed pacus will produce 100 omellete daily, each containing 2800 kcal, which means 280000/ cycle Another example. a domesticated sleet wheat will produce 800 kcal/cycle if inside greenhouse. 4 rooms of greenhouses with each room containing 14 plants will yield 44800 kcal/cycle. (I haven't tested the grubgrub and the exuberant mutated plant yet). The thing is that for all of the trouble, we only get 12.5 kg of isoresin/ 100000 kcal. 200 kg of visco gel (2 tile height liquid lock) requires 70 kg of isoresin which means 600.000 kcal. C'mon man, we need to spend 600000 just to make 1 liquid lock. That is simply not worth it or even fun. I might as well be committed to using the crude method of liquid lock and forget about resin. Diamond Press At this stage, we require 1000 Radbolts to convert 100 kg of refined carbon into 100 kg of diamond. In comparison, I can fully power a radbolt rocket (which is overall better than the hydrogen rocket) by only using 4800 radbolts. That is way too long to produce an 800 kg diamond tempshift plate. My suggestion is to convert refined carbon into diamond at a 25% efficiency. I think it make sense because the key word is compressing coal into a smaller, denser material. However, we can process as much as 4 tons of refined carbon at once. To illustrate: 4000 kg of refined carbon into 1000 kg of diamond, requiring the same time, radbolt and energy. Rebalancing the Engines in general Radbolt engines is way too good. It has a huge fuel capacity. Meanwhile, hydrogen engine, which requires harder to make fuel need to install 2 large fuel tank and a liquid oxidizer tank in order to travel long distance. That pretty much reduces the available module height by a lot from the oxidizer and fuel tank alone. Making liquid hydrogen and oxygen is also more difficult compared to radbolt. I suggest that the hydrogen engine get a buff from either reducing the necessary module height (engine, liquid fuel and oxidizer tank) as well as reducing the required fuel/tile from 100 kg/tile to 75/tile. Carbon dioxide engine, I believe should be made more inefficient because at this point it is way too easy to refuel the engine. I suggest that the CO2 fuel consumption should be quadrupled. Conclusion In a nutshell, my suggestions are: Increase the amount of resins that we get from 100000 kcal of food (5 times would be perfect) Make the Diamond press process 4 tons of refined carbon at once to get 1 ton of diamond, keeping the same amount of energy and radbolt requirement. Buff the hydrogen engine (by reducing module heights, and fuel/tile), and nerf the carbon dioxide engine (100 kg CO2 per tile as opposed to 25). Thank you for reading.
