GuyPerfect Posted November 27, 2017 Share Posted November 27, 2017 I dismantled a Polymer Press because I was done with the Petroleum and wanted to retrieve the remaining Plastic from it. In the debris, I noticed something odd: a bottle of Steam: I understand why it's there, but it raises an interesting design question: shouldn't that turn into Water? The broader question is this: what's going on with bottled gases? You can tell a Duplicant to empty them, but you can't move them. In this specific case, it's also preventing a state change that will happen immediately once its contents are released. I'm sure it's on the to-do list, but cases like this make me wonder exactly how things might wind up getting implemented mechanically. Is there really a need for gas bottles? In my mind, the leftover Steam was going to immediately enter the environment, but of course I should have predicted the bottle instead. Are there any situations where a bottle is more appropriate than simply releasing the contained gases? I can understand the environmental convenience, such as keeping those 200 Kg of Oxygen contained when you take down an Exosuit Dock with a fully-charged Atmo Suit in it, but part of me thinks there's got to be a better way.
