Liquids stack on top of each other and do not fall down

  • Branch: Preview Branch Version: Linux Pending

In some cases liquids do not act like liquids. See the image below and the strange spiky shape of the liquids.

I think I understand the technical reasons for why it acts this way. Each layer is a different liquid (water, polluted water, petroleum, crude oil) and they don't mix, so each stays on its level. And since despite the look of it there's only very little of the 3 top liquids, they do not spread to the sides. But still, this is rather silly and also annoying, as it blocks gas flow between the left and right side. I think this could be handled e.g. by liquids trying to fall also sideways, or if a liquid tile has another liquid on top of it and there's room to the side, this lower layer could move to a side.

User Feedback

Well, I've run into more weird liquid behaviour. Check ..


Also, I think stacking should work oposite way, as water has density 1000kg per square and polluted water 800kg per square, it should stack above it. I'm now unsure about cure oil density, but due to fact that any oil accident means top level water pollution (IRL), it has also lower density than water.
