Rocket fuel caculation problem for looping toggle

  • Branch: Preview Branch Version: Windows Pending

When I checked about the automation signal of rocket platform,

I think It does not calculate required fuel mass properly.


For image 001, I made a looping travel course which needs at least 50 kg of CO2.

However my rocket platform in image 002, It accept rocket launch just for 34 kg of CO2. (Even if rocket shows "partially fueled" state in image 003)

Maybe the platform calculate needed fuel just for one-way regardless of looping toggle function.

I know It shows warning(The rocket can still be launched if necessary).

However I think the output port should regard the looping condition to use automatic deploy function of orbital cargo.


My suggestion:

Platform automation output regard the rocket looping condition to check enough fuel as twice for one-way travel.

But It could be launched by external automation signal in the insufficient fueled state.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Build a rocket

2. Choose a destination with looping toggle

3. Connect between automation ports(input and output) directly

4. Then, rocket gonna be launched even if it has not enough fuel for return.
