  3. 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
  4. Okay I didn't check the save file, Your theory seems more likely
  5. Most likely the liquid gets displaced by CO2 exhaled by a dupe as it passes though. This is a common issue with single tile liquid airlocks. Better to upgrade to a 4 tile liquid lock
  6. no I always load early stables with as much art as I can fit to manage stress for the ranchers I reloaded the game for the update and noticed the hydrogen in my glossy farm was more visible now

    I am starting to appreciate how important the gas sorter thingy is (like the one you started pretty early on the left) - without it it is hard to fill exosuits (without a way to reliably divert non-O2 gas), run an oil refinery or polymer press.  I've been having a heck of a time making it though -- I need to find a way to reliably put less than 1.5 kilos of water on the vent, and often when I drip small amounts (30 g using the tile runoff method you showed me) the water gets displaced or just disappears.  What is your secret?

      Oh ... and why the hydro sensor under the vent?

      First it's better to use oil instead of water, you can deal with more extreme tempatures without having to worry about boiling or freezing.

      Second you need one full tile under the vent.  This prevents liquid deletion that sometimes happens when gas passes though the vent.

      Third the hydro sensor is just to give player control over the pumps, turning them on/off whenever you need them.  You can also use atmosphere or thermal if you prefer.

  8. wait, that has been a known issue for over a year and no one thought it was a bug? haha
  9. also make sure there's no liquefiable gas in the chamber with the nullifier as well (like CO2) for best results fill it with hydrogen
  10. Transit tubes and transit tube crossings are coded to follow the same rules as heavy-watt wires and heavy-watt joint plates they have access ports on ether side that can't be overlapped, the problem is there's no overlay for transit system so the ports are invisible perhaps we need an overlay?
