      Support Email Error (Zendesk)   08/12/2019

      We are migrating to a new customer support ticketing system (desk.com) and unfortunately while moving over our old tickets the new system (Zendesk) sent an auto reply to "new users". We weren't aware this would happen and so and email was sent out in error. You do not need to create an account and you can ignore the email entirely. You can find more info about this over on our forums here: https://forums.kleientertainment.com/forums/topic/110413-zendesk/ Sorry for the confusion

  1. Polluted Water at 932F??? 932F is 500 Celsius... Polluted Water should be steamed at this temperature, and when condensed, it turns into clean water. Polluted Oxygen turns into oxygen at +-183 C ( -297,4 F )....
  2. Can someone test if 'Weight Plate' can be used to detect a landed rocket?
  3. This is my strategy: I produce and store all food in a chlorine filled room - the only moment food leaves this room is when it goes to the CO2 pit in the mess hall.
  4. What i do is to install mini gas pumps in my ph2o reservoir to collect the po2, but i never build anything dedicated to po2 production due to the very low production rates.
  5. Co2 to crude oil

    This is what i do with slicksters: I made 2 rooms, 1 9x9 for ranching, and another one big enough to not be considered a room. conveour system and automation delivers excess eggs from ranching room to the big room, retrieves meat and eggshells and long hairs eggs. So how it work: Ranching will raise new eggs. Long hairs are removed, other slicksters are kept. Excess eggs are delivered to the big room, so ranching room will never overcrowds. Big room will never overcrowd because slicksters are considered wild. Pump all your CO2 into this room and, the result is almost labor free CO2 -> Oil conversion. Then you'll have another problem: Once you have enough slickster, CO2 will be always at shortage....
  6. Well.... maybe he has mistok the difference between off-gassing and evaporation - off-gassing is the only concept that fits the OP description. Anyway....off-gassing 1Kg Ph2o into 1Kg PO2 will take ages - i dont think it is really practical.
  7. Off-gassing is different from evaporation. Off-gassing occurs when ph2o is stored in a place with atmospheric pressure bellow 1.8Kg. It happens with slime, bleach stone and polluted dirt. Evaporation happens when ph2o is above 125c, resulting and steam and dirt.
  8. Explosions remind-me my old heat deletion mechanism: Before the new steam turbine, my massive heat deletion method was done by heating steam until 1500C (when using thermium aquaturners), and venting all steam to space.... imagine a 6x6 all filled with 2000Kg of steam going to space.... wasteful solution, but with a beautiful effect!!
  9. Maybe something like an enclosed 3x1 (3 height , 1 width ) area with PH2O and a small gas pump, pumpimg resultante po2 to a area with purifiers will do the trick.
  10. "allow tempshift plates to pull heat from machines in a vacuum" The best solution in my opinion!
  11. Nothing beats the combo "Aquaturner + Steam turbine".
  12. About fuels: I dont know how it is in the rest of the world, but here, in Brazil we dont use lead in the gasoline, we use Ethanol instead, in a mixture of 25% of ethanol, 75% of gasoline. Sometimes it is 20%, sometimes is 30% depending on the sugarcane production, gasoline costs - the ratio is regulated by the governement, but is never above 30% or lower than 20%. Modern cars and motorcycles can use gasoline or pure ethanol as fuel (there is both at the gas station), but ethanol is less efficient than gasoline, so at the current prices isn't worth use pure ethanol. Even ethanol being less expensive than gasoline, the milleage is lower, so ethanol is only worth if it is less than 70% of the gasoline price. My Motorcycle ( Yamaha Lander 2020) can use both fuels, but i only use gasoline There is also GNV - natural gas - in some gas stations - is it possible to install kits that allow a gasoline or ethanol engine to use that. The price of GNV is very very low, but the engine loses much power. Its nice for the day to day traffic jams or in a road - if more horse power are needed, just flip a switch to put the car in gasoline mode. In a low cost car with small engine it is perfect. Old cars (like my 1996 Ford Escort ) have engines capable of use only one type of fuel - my Escort runs only on gasoline, but it was possible to purchase a ethanol only version at the time (the dual fuel tecnology doesn't existed at the time). Ethanol only engines has some problems in cold days - sometimes it is difficult to start, and there was need to keep the engine running until it heats before use the car. Diesel fueled cars are outlawed in Brasil - you can't have one. Diesel is only for trucks, SUV, off-roads and machinery. All trucks are diesel powered, some SUVs has gasoline/ethanol or diesel versions. This is not due pollution or ecollogy, but because in the past (+- 1976) petroleum was imported and diesel has governement subsides, so the law was made this way, to reduce consumption. Today this is pointless, there is no subsides, diesel is the less expensive of all fuels, but nobody revoke the law yet.... My SUV are diesel (1997 Silverado) , and, in my opinion, nothing beats the pleasure of drive that SUV.
  13. I'm at work now, so i cannot test now: If petroleum generator can burn liquid ethanol, can natural gas generator burn gaseous ethanol?
  14. Linux

    Xubuntu 18.04, works fine here.
