      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      We are now ready to accept claims for PS4 Megapack replacements.  Once again, our deepest appologies for this entire situation. We understand that your purchase of the Megapack was a show of support by our fans, many of which already owned the game. Please know that we have done our best to push as hard as we can for a quick and fair resolution to this issue. This has taken WAY too long to be resolved but we have done everything in our power to make sure our fans get what they purchased.   We are going to use the voucher codes we have been using to provide the digital version to claim the physical replacement discs. For North America, we are handling these requests directly through our own store with help from our friends at IndieBox. Claims will be handled at no cost to you. For claims outside of North America, 505 will be taking your information and processing your claims.  Those who purchased the Megapack after 4/26/2018 should have been given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt.  Those who purchased before 4/26/2018 or did not get a code otherwise can contact us for a voucher code that will entitle them to the digital megapack and can be used to claim the physical replacement discs. We have been handing those out for a while now, but if you are in this category and have not requested a code, you can do so here: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/en/portal/articles/2935839-physical-mega-pack-disc-support-information Once you have a voucher code:
      For purchasers in Europe (SIEE). To make a claim you will need to make file a claim through 505 here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSckru65CWkXH5RZ_3j2f5_h1djNiAyrl8R0PCvdKPmGwItyvA/viewform For purchasers in North America (SIEA). To make a claim you will use our support site and use the voucher code to claim a replacement here: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/articles/2952265-ps4-faulty-disc-claim If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know here on this thread or contact us at livesupport@kleientertainment.com Thank you.

  1. Refrigerators are already smart. I had built a system that would only pull food when there was space in external storage and avoid leaving food on the conveyor line. It did require two refrigerators. One to signal it wasn't at capacity and the other to handle the rest of the conveyor line backlog.
  2. Are dusk caps obsolete?

    For a lot of people, it isn't about water immediately available. It is water indefinitely available. It can feel wrong to consume finite resources for very little actual gain. By the time you're particularly far along, you probably are ready to mostly abandon farming for foodstuffs anyway in favor of meat. Water is probably better spent on supplying peppernut for BBQ and espresso machines. Unless you want to mess with shinebug variants. Mushrooms are essentially don't require a whole lot. And you're going to get slime from pufts if you're ranching them.
  3. Making your paintings or statues out of granite will also bump them a couple of points of decor. Might be enough to cross that threshold immediately.
  4. Dealing with meteors

    It isn't really about small colonies. It is about lime production. You can have a tiny dupe population and exploit schemes to pump out lime and you'll be able to shield yourself. Or a giant dupe population that can do things very quick and still get lime bottlenecked. There is an inherent problem with things as they stand. People are strongly encouraged down a particular path in order to rescue the asteroid from obliteration by extreme fish farming or some other high output ranching in order to generate the lime necessary to build a steel dome in time. Not all seeds suffer the problem as grievously, though.
  5. Dealing with meteors

    Caustic with a lot of phospherite fall part really quick too.
  6. To explain this specific element. Pipes cannot handle state change, whether freezing or boiling. They will break if a state transition happens within them. When you successfully liquified the oxygen, it burst the pipe, leaked out, and vaporized as it came into contact with the warm atmosphere. For all the regular gases, hydrogen has the highest conductivity, largest heat capacity and lowest temperature before liquifying (I think just above absolute zero). So it is usually the gas of choice when using a gas to transfer temperature with less fear of state change.
  7. Pipe bridge combiner

    I assume they fixed it since. But I know that in AU if you exceeded around 2million kcals stored, it would flip the sign integer on that particular HUD element. Looks by Oil upgrade they hadn't addressed it. I haven't bothered banking that many kcals since, so I don't know if it still does it.
  8. Folks are getting hung up on one persons definition of a sufficiently developed colony. One that most of us wouldn't agree with. There are plenty of ways to get dirt. But sustainably farming Mealwood for dupes is just way more work than better sources of kcals. I do have a mealwood farm, but a small one for Drekos. Everyone who wants easy plastic.
  9. Pipe bridge combiner

    If you are using Steam and taking pictures with F12, after closing the game, by default you should get the "screenshot uploader" pop up. It has a button for "Show on Disk" under the thumbnails between "Select all" and "View Online Library". Clicking "Show On Disk" will open the screenshot folder for the specific game in Fire Explorer. You can also find the "Screenshot uploader" with the option to "Show on Disk" located in the Steam Client under "View" then "Screeshots" towards the bottom of the menu. The "Screenshot Uploader" accessed via the Steam overlay curiously does not have this button, however. Answering the question of the OP. Here's a thread from a guy on Reddit that has a few examples and how they work.
  10. I mean, yeah. There is a limit to that sustainability. But you will last a long time. At the same time, I like to cast myself into the mindset of a duplicant trying to survive in the colony I've built. I don't want to just provide the barest minimal necessities to survive. And, in the end, I like to provide that good life 100% sustainably. Not just sustainable for 'long enough'. But in literal in-perpetuity were the game to operate that long. Including inputs and outputs.
  11. [Question] Ice Biomes

    It should be noted that the more you develop in an ice biome the more tend to destroy it as a place of cold. Most of the temperature maintaining the the biome is within the ice and granite that exists. As you dig it out, you lose mass and the thermal inertia that lost mass contained. My personal strategy is to expose cold biomes to slime biomes. To melt the cold biome and to freeze the slime biome. Using the cold to decontaminate slime before moving it into my base.
  12. Also, if tame by adulthood, fullyfed, a fish will produce over 10 eggs in its life time if kept from overcrowding or expecting. It has reproductive years from ~6 to 25 cycles. So 19ish cycles of 65% reproduction rate. This is the fish factory I had built in my last/current colony. It is perhaps not as sophisticated as some posted here, but it might give you ideas.
  13. Actually, it means quite a few things around the world. Many of which are vulgar or derogatory references to anatomy or orientation. So, no, in fact it doesn't ONLY mean one thing as you claim. And it has undeniably become used as a dog whistle. My 'attacks' only refer to people who are deliberately set out to deceive, gaslight, and strawman. If none of that was your intention, then nothing I said would have applied to you. To reiterate, nobody said every instance of someone using the OK hand sign is attempting to dog whistle. If you want to 'joke' that that is the implication of what I or anyone here said, then it is absurd not to expect someone to make comment. Since it is sort of fundamental to the discussion of what a dog whistle is. I am certainly not here to stamp out everybody's use of the OK hand sign. I'm just against feigning ignorance to intention. Indeed, there is a reason I didn't call you a stooge. But structured my post in a way to regard specific actions to be that of a stooge. Because I don't know that you are. But if you intended to behave a particular way that was described. Then I am clear in what I think of that. I do find it difficult to believe that you could read the posts in this thread and think deliberately misrepresenting the innocuous use of the OK hand sign by divers as suggestion by others that they are racist would not be perceived by some in this thread as an attempt at gaslighting or strawmaning, though. And just because I am verbose, does not mean I am not calm.
  14. Why so offended? I only attacked people who are pretending dog whistles aren't dog whistles. I'm confident that doesn't apply to you. I just wanted to clarify my point which your 'joke' took aim at. If it doesn't apply to you, you should just ignore it.
  15. Context is important. If you want to abandon context and gaslight or strawman, that's fine. It demonstrates a lot about your character. Nobody is saying every instance of the OK hand sign is a wink and a nod to fellow Neo-Nazis and white supremacists. But, undeniably, some of them are. Pretending that is not the case, is doing their work for them. And gives rise to suspicion one is either a sympathizer or stooge.
