Either that or just use a Buffer Gate to power it for a few seconds when a Duplicant gets close. The thing needs to turn off when not in use.

I actually just had this happen and noticed a new build after I quit to desktop. (-:

Maybe the idea is that it consume power whenever someone is using it (already inside the tubes also counts), but sinse it's hard (I think) to detect when a dupe is inside it, it just consumes all the time. :confused:
Or maybe it's just a way to limit the use of it.
IMO they should add a stress response to using the tubes (or at least a large one).

So why does it require a constant power drain still? While it had charges it was implied that it would stop taking up power after it had its 3 charges and go idle, but now it forever drains 480W which easily makes it never worth using.
 

We have automation for that :)

Man, that'd wreck havoc on pathing. If not powered it's not registered as a possible path and as soon as someone steps near every single dupe needs to recheck their pathing to incorporate the new option. Definitely not a good idea to put proximity sensoring on tubes. A timer could work though just like on doors, you could open up areas for pathing in certain time frame at certain intervals but having it based on proximity is not a good idea in my opinion.

To my surprise it actually does require Sleet Wheat.

You can see I have plenty of Sleet Wheat Grain, but the berry sludge takes 1/0 Sleet Wheat.

 

I wasn't actually planning to make any of it, but was just curious

  • Poles no longer use athletics when travelling downwards, but have had their base speed raised to be consistently fast for all dupes.

 

I can't test this as I don't want to reinstall the tubular downgrade but could someone test if that means a reasonably mid-level dupe with 20 athlelics actually climbs down ladders faster than on a pole.

EDIT: Fire poles used to give a flat +75% bonus to move speed. Anyone care to check what the new speed is?

I did quick test using lvl 26 runners and seems like fire-pole is a bit faster. (tooltip still says +75% speed)
I never used plastic ladders before, but to me it seems that they are at same speed now as normal ladder. (which is probably not as it should be)

 

Edit: there is some small difference visible on long ladders - test with athletics 0: https://youtu.be/4_QyqocsVbk

Hmmm... yeah plastic ladders definitely used to be faster than regular ladders.

And thanks for the test. So the tipping point is higher than 26. The actual tipping point is hard to tell but inevitably a flat bonus as applied now will mean that in the long term, ladders will always become faster than fire poles.

I tested it with athletics 0 on longer ladder and there is some small difference and plastic is still a bit faster.

I am not sure but there might be athletics cap at 26 (or 33 with +7 from trait).

"Its aggressive, overbearing sweetness can leave the tongue feeling temporarily numb."

The cake is so sweet that it's uneatable in Don't Starve. :wilson_facepalm:

And the Meal Lice is flavorless, so it can be ate as... candies? How strange it is. oiyfds.jpg

That's weird. I definitely have had dupes with athletics way higher than 26 or 33.

EDIT: Checked some save files. The maximum is indeed level 26 now. I'm trying to find if I still have a screen shot of a dupe that definitely had 42 athletics, so not sure when the cap was introduced.

Let me power that with 2 NG's, no oil wells and a few hamster wheels.

Seriously guys, 480W constantly for each access point is way too much. You can't automate it properly either as dupes will not try to use it when it is powered down.

It should either have those charges, or it should run on a way less power. 60W for each access point is much more reasonable.

You can definitely automate them in a way so the dupes use them by combining them with doors and checkpoints.

And automate every access point? I rather not use tubes at all if I fad to setup every point with doors, checkpoints and gates.
