Unwanted liquid transfer from Mech. Airlock

  • Branch: Live Branch Version: Windows Pending

Running a steam generator/volcano setup similar to Brothgar's setup. Using phosphorus gas in the chamber with the volcano to disperse heat to an enclosed area where steam is created. When the steam hits the desired temperature, the mechanized airlocks below open up, creating a vacuum and thus separating the two areas from heat transfer. Sometimes when the airlocks close and then open, liquid phosphorus glitches and comes in to the steam area. There isnt any liquid piping connecting the two areas and I'm running ~1500g/tile of phosphorus below at ~600oC and ~900g/tile of steam. Temp of phosphorus gas below is ~400-700oC and the thermo sensor is set to enable the airlocks to open when it gets above 125oC

It's a well known bug and signaled many times. ;)

When you close doors in this config, the gas in the upper part of the door sometimes can't merge with the gas below, and so it's relocated above the solid layer.
