Share the way you build airlocks, share your knowledge :)

Recommended Posts

What are your ways to build airlocks ? :confused:

Are you an efficiency player or do you like to build fancy looking air locks like in a Bond movie ? Do you like experiments and crazy things ?

Share your own personal way of building airlocks :razz:

How it works and how to build:

The steam engines are pumping the collected steam water down the ladders on the right hand side - Dupe access is via lead suits to prevent heat injuries. The aqua tuners are cooling the steam engines ( with Petroleum ) and are also the cooling aircon system for the entire colony.


Currently I am building a new room inside the steam room ( which contains a salt water geyser and a lava volcano ), its exact purpose and way of function is still in development. If I want to use that room-in-a-room sometime soon, then I need to consider avoiding steam/gas over pressure.

I tend to put heat producing stuff like colony battery backup packs ( and hot machinery ) in to steam rooms.

Simple thermo sensors, for aquatuner`s power shutdown...if the cooling fluid gets too cold or the aquatuners get too hot:


Lots of heat leaks via fat cables in this area. Excuse: I`m busy with building lots of other things in the map. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzz !


Constructing better conductivity, to heat up the water section I want to have evaporate inside the steam room:


Improving steam and water flow, relocating thermo sensor...

Perhaps you want to share your favorite way of building airlocks ? :ghost: Anything goes :razz:

Version 6.69 of the airlock with 1 tile wide "Nanotube" access to the underwater maze :bee:


Gas project work on the cold war rocket silo has started:

The new "Robosux any gas to space" ventilation, for stacked rocket`s exhaust fumes. Once I can make 20K more power, I want to cool the current steam waste to water...with a new 2nd cooling system.

Every lead suit dock row is partitioned with 3 tile tall ladder gaps, for dupe worker separation


Worker quarters - More great hall`s for the Great Nation of Dupistan
