Delaney Posted August 4, 2017 Share Posted August 4, 2017 So after playing this game for a couple of weeks now, some things limit your ability to deal with lets say 516Kg per square of polluted oxygen, or the ever increasing carbon dioxide. so I have for you 3 ways to deal with/ get over pressurized gas, 2 of which I found as well as one which is known. As a disclaimer, about the two ways I found: one way I know is unique no references anywhere that I could find, another someone probably did discover already but I didnt find anything referenced either The first way easiest, slowest, and as a bonus you can DESTROY the gas! and possibly already discovered I call this technique Checkmate. you fill the gas void with high tiles, before you can get to the gas and deconstruct the tile or dig the square kiddy corner to the gas, your dupes will place a tile in the gas moving the gas from that location; wash, rinse, repeat. I suggest starting from the top of the gas pocket and work your way down when you get to the last block of gas it will be many Kg of gas, and if you place a tile there it is gone forever. Alternatively you can start with some tiles all together and build out while destroying the tiles inside creating a perfect vacuum. the second way to compress gases, which is fairly easy, quick, and cheap on resources as while as being my main discovery *super proud* build a gas compression apparatus , super simple. all you need is a gas lighter then the gas(es) you want to concentrate (sorry it doesn't work on hydrogen), a gas vent with feeding pipes, and some tile. the simplest version I made, its good until about 11.1Kg, place the vent and the pipes then make sure there is one empty space above the vent and one empty space beside it, I have always put the empty space on the right side. I pump about 3-4 Kg of hydrogen in the the vent that settles in the form the trick is it must be more then 2 KG. then pump in the other gas. How it works is the vent will get over pressurized by the gas you put in but vent push the gas on it up so first it concentrates the hydrogen, then it gets over pressurized and some hydrogen pushes back and get over the vent which is less then over pressurization concentration, which allows it to output again. and it repeats. I have pictures of my second version. it took some adjusting after it was operational, so I don't have definitive instruction to make it work reliably but it is so far good to 23.9 KG and I am working on a third version which should work every time and get really good compression and the third way which is long, power heavy, lots of micro managing. when I say long I mean looooooong to get it working awesomely. is make a cryo chanber and cool alot of hydrogen down to -210c, you can freeze all other gases either to a solid ( no use right now, you cant move it with your dupes because no storage container can take the object) or to a liquid. you can liquefy the other gases too but you have to adjust the temperature to each one. solid carbon dioxide take no space and actually will make the cryo chamber faster by adding thermal mass. but you have to add gasses slowly to the mix mine is capable of about 112 g per second of gases, oxygen, carbon dioxide, chlorine. the chamber, gas pipes, liquid pipes all HAVE to be made out of ABYSSALITE. or you will be waiting a VERY long time and/or cooling your colony too much. I have pictures, there are other instructions on this already so I will not get into it unless requested. also polluted oxygen when liquefied becomes liquid oxygen, not polluted.
