SpoonsOnMyElbows Posted March 6, 2017 Share Posted March 6, 2017 I've finally managed to build a fully self sustainable base! It produces just enough oxygen to sustain 3 dupes, although with more morbs, it might support 4. (As the contaminated oxygen to clean oxygen exchange rate starts out great, but once the pressure of the gas room drops, it loses efficiency. With more morbs, the pressure will stay up longer, meaning the oxygen cleaner can be left switched on at high efficiency for longer) It can recycle water (slowly) although there is no need for water in this base, but an electrolyzer system could be added to increase both oxygen production, and ease power (with the use of a hydrogen generator). [I didn't bother putting this in, as it could only be switched on for a couple seconds at a time with the amount of water produced] It removes co2, and any other unwanted gas, at the flick of a switch. It has a grow room that requires no maintenance or temperature control, as nobody ever goes into it. And no need to clean up any vomit, pee, etc. It all gets recycled. EDIT : I wasn't clear on this, but each room can be toggled on and off with switches. There is no way this could be sustainable if every room was on all the time. In fact, the oxygen room can only be turned on for very short intervals (although it still produces more than enough, the main reason it can't be left on is the power consumption). The steamer room doesn't use power, except to pump out the steam (which is also toggleable). The lights are also all switched off until it starts producing a slight excess of power. But for now, they are just for display. Also, the dupes all have Diver's Lung trait, so that they consume less oxygen. (They also have vomiter, and small bladder/irritable bowel). If you have any suggestions to improve on this, lets discuss them here. Together i'm sure we can all come up with the absolute most efficient, self sustaining base. I'll post the pipe layout below too. Note: The "Air Con" room is completely optional. I built it because i was worried about the temperature climbing in the gas room, and the morbs dying. But so far i've never needed to switch it on, and the temperature seems constant. EDIT : Also, there is actually no need to clean oxygen, as dupes are fine to inhale it. I just wanted to include clean water and oxygen. A self sustaining base that does not clean oxygen is fairly easy to achieve, as morbs produce an endless supply for free.
