Reverse Desalinator

Yea, I've been wanting to be able to make salt water for a while too, either by adding salt to fresh water, or adding fresh water to brine to dilute it.  Also a consumption control to restrict dupes from eating all of the table salt they want would be nice too.

Ummm, don't crush salt>table_salt?

I do agree with a form of player sourced salt water and sadly ugly crying I don't think works.
Maybe a recipe for Epsom salts to use in Hot tub instead of Bleach stone, causes you to get salt water instead?

to avoid trade mark violation they should make bath salts, which, when inhaled would give massive speed boost to dupes with a slight chance of cannibalism.

 

edit- huh apparently its just the name of town where it was first made. anyhow, i still stand by my suggestion

i don't think these are gauranteed either, but if this is a matter of your own game, then try looking at the starmap for more salt water

I think it should not be literal rocket science to get salt water when you have both salt and water.

I recognize your complaint wholeheartedly but at the same time I think this game is no stranger to convoluted ways to acquire resources, I think in a sense I can appreciate the drillcone way a little more than merely placing a building that takes salt and pre-existing water sources and spits out exactly what is necessary. Again I do understand where you're coming though

I found a solution

you make a room with a auto-sweeper a bin and a conveyor chute and you lock a dupe inside.

the dupe will compete with the auto-sweeper rendering it useless, and eventually the dupe should cry, like I do when i see this. then you simply mop up the tears

Yes... well, sand also.  Then all your dupes immediately start trying to eat the table salt.  You can't restrict who is allowed to eat it, so you can't save the +1 morale bonus for only those that need it.
