gases and liquids disappear in closed systems

  • Pending

This topic comes up a lot in the forums, but I couldn't find an existing bug report. An air pump running in a sealed room will quickly deplete all the air.


The same thing happens with water pumps.


Steps to Reproduce
Seal a pump and a vent in a room and let them run.

User Feedback

I have seen this kind of think in quite a few games with similar fluid dynamic simulations.  Im going to go on a whim here and suggest that the loss (or sometimes gain in other games) is caused by some degree of rounding in the calculations/floating point errors.  It seems like thats what it usually comes down to.
