Dirmagnos Posted November 22, 2017 Share Posted November 22, 2017 From what ive seen on forum there have been plenty of those idea around, so il give it a shot as well. 3x3 box, 13 indicators, 12 intakes/outtakes for pipes(3 on each side). 12 indicators are shape of a triangle and show direction of the flow(pointing towards outtake means liquid goes out, and vice versa), with color for medium(like blue for water). Each indicator is located directly adjacent to outlet it monitors. 13th indicator in the center shows status of station, eg green means that everything is ok, yellow shows that there are so issues(like one of the pipes goes nowhere) and red means something bad has happened(like internal tank is full and liquid has nowhere to go). Alternatively it could be just 8 connections in total, would probably be easier, but serve same purpose. Selecting construction shows player new menu, where he can change flow direction for each outlet(because right now if i try to make multi-pipe connection, then its a mess, with 3-4 pipes connected nothing moves anywhere for no good reason, with max pressure prior to intersection and no pressure past it, forcing to make a maze of pipes with million intersection, even tho they all may move same liquid, often even in same direction), amount that is allowed to pass and sort out liquids as well for each pipe, if preference is selected(instead of placing bunch of liquid filters for every possible scenario). 480W, 5000l capacity(so it can store certain amount of liquid without expelling it, but if its full, then nothing goes nowhere until tank is emptied of it content). Essentially whole setup is like combo of regular liquid pump, liquid valve and liquid filter for multiple connections. Same could be done for gasses and even transformer would be nice addition, operating on similar principles(round indicator means free flow in both directions, triangular only in one, and square no movement, with indicator either brightness or color change showing how close it is to it max capacity).
