The default button to turn on the sprinkler is B on the Steam Deck (and I imagine this also applies to anyone using a controller to play). Wheeler's dodge action is also B, and overrides the sprinkler action, so I can't turn on my sprinkler.
This was reproduced on a Steam Deck with all mods disabled.
- Create a new game playing Wheeler in Hamlet
- Use console commands to spawn in enough items to create a science station, alchemy engine, and sprinkler
- Craft and place sprinkler, fuel sprinkler
Expected result: Highlighting sprinkler gives the tooltip naming which control turns on sprinkler OR pressing B turns on sprinkler
Actual result: Highlighting sprinkler still tells the user B is the dodge action, and pressing B only performs the dodge action. There is no option to turn on the sprinkler.
