  1. Thanks for sharing this great colony! I was just wondering where your normal water comes from, I can only see the sieve. Does that sieve keep up with your consumption?
  2. Yes I agree, if I would do this I would use molten slicksters so that I wouldn't even need to build a petroleum boiler. For these numbers you could feed 21,6 duplicants with oxygen.
  3. If I am not mistaken, you can feed 27 dupes with oxygen if you use natural gas and electrolyzers. That isn't pointless.
  4. I was testing on the launch preview, it seems that they changed the heat transfer in one of the latest hotfixes. So my experiments are outdated.
  5. The two experiments with liquid started with the exact same setup, exact same temperature differences, only the liquid element was different. Then I deconstructed some tiles and then the water and crude oil flashed to steam and sour gas/ petrolium. In the pictures I showed that the heat transfer stops at 400°C and 100°C for water and crude oil. With my experiment with oxygen I tried to reproduce the findings of OP, I did not try to compare to my tests with liquid heat transfer. I think my conclusions are correct, I would be happy if someone proves me wrong.
  6. Thanks for the great source but that is not what explains the heat transfer between hot abyssalite and liquids. after some experiments I am under the impression that heat transfer only happens when abyssalite is hotter then the fase-change temperature of the liquid it touches that abyssalite tile so 400°C for crude oil and 100°C for water (see pictures). Further more this heat transfer happens absolutely instantanious. Not like normal heat transfer. You can see that if the abyssalite is colder that the fase-change temperature of the liquid the heat transer happens normally again. abyssalite(400°C) and crude oil(-20°C) do not transfer heat in a noticeable way. I have tried to repoduce heat transfer between a gas and abyssalite but I was not succesfull. After 20 cycles the oxygen did not change temperature. I am not sure in what conditions abyssalite conducts heat to gasses. When heat transfer happens normally, abyssalite does not transfer any heat in normal temerature ranges.
  7. Yes I think it is possible that something else cooled the oxygen down. Before this post I always thought abyssalite did not conduct that much heat with so little temperature difference. With "few cycles" I meant less that 172 cycles. I Am now doing an experiment to see if I can reproduce this heat transfer.
  8. I have never encountered noticable heat transfer between abyssalite and a gas, only hot abyssalite with crude oil. In the picture the abyssalite cooled the oxygen a lot down in a few cycles. I think It is abnormal behavior.
  9. Now phosforite gas has the highest thermal conductivity again.
  10. Some of the things i would like to see: - better (late-) game performance - grassy moos reproduce and generate x2 more natural gas - metal cannon bug gets fixed - tempedizer can not be tricked to keep working when to hot - monument doesn't melt in weard ways - sulfur has a reason to exist
  11. Yes I meant that on the pages of liquid ethanol and liquid petrolium the petrolium generator is missing from the list of consumers. The same goes for natural gas and the natural gas generator.
  12. Thanks for that great website! Some small things that I think are incomplete: - production method for sushi edit: sushi is not in the launch so sushi should be deleted - when on the page of natural gas, petrolium or ethanol you don't see that they can be consumed by the natural gas or petrolium generator. - ?? state change of raw eggs to omelette ?? (I don't know if that is still a thing) edit: - sour gas state change to sulfur and methane not only to methane - I don't think wild critters can be glum - carbon asteroid, rocky asteroid and dusty dwarf have new art
  13. It is sustainable but you need 60 lilies for one mealwood so it's not an actual usable dirt source.
  14. according to the wiki the amount of dirt and water needed for research is constant (50kg/research point). So The total dirt and water consumption will stay the same regardless of the learning number of the dupe.
  15. A door pump uses the opening and closing of doors with automation to force a liquid or gas in a certain direction. Door pumps are used to compress gasses more than a high pressure vent, I don't think you are in need of a door pump. some tips: Try to avoid natural gas and sour gas in the open with liquid airlocks and never print a flatulent dupe. hydrogen just goes up so that should be no problem. chlorine stays just above the co2 so if the co2 level is low enough, then chlorine is not really a problem. If your dupes are in exosuits then you only need to keep your plants in the right atmosphere.
