Pressure plate sensor bugged with PW bottles

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Known Issue

I was testing if I can automate a plumbers ability to create polluted water bottles for polluted oxygen production I ran into this bug 

The idea was to create an automation with a pressure plate to allow a plumber to fill a bottle when it get's low

However it appears while the PW bottle looses weights as it off-gasses, the sensor doesn't notice the weight change 

In the first picture my plumber fills the bottle up to 2325.2kg of PW


in the second picture several cycles have passed and the PW bottle is now less than 2000kg, yet the pressure plate still thinks it's 2325.2kg


Steps to Reproduce
watch a polluted water bottle off-gas on a pressure plate

Status: Known Issue

We are aware of this issue and have it logged internally but either we do not have a fix ready yet or we are not planning on addressing the issue in the immediate future.

User Feedback


You can use pneumatic doors, as a workaround, to push the bottles up and make them fall onto the pplate again. That triggers the weight sensor.
