  1. Yes, there are two continuous supercoolant loops through the metal tiles. If the supercoolant is above -200C when it arrives at the aquatuner, it is cooled. Tempshift plates do not directly conduct heat to other tempshift plates, or to pipes, only gasses liquids and solids as displayed in the materials overlay basically. Oxygen has a pretty low thermal conductivity, so I use a lot of metal tiles to provide a very high conductivity path to more evenly distribute the temperature across the room. Many of the tempshift plates and metal tiles are made of lead, although the metal tiles on the inside are made of aluminum with diamond tempshift plates joining them. The LOX output pump bridges onto a O2 loop to feed the rockets, the loop has radiant piping to recool the returning LOX. I had originally imagined perhaps having 2 to 4 liquid pumps with separate loops to fuel multiple returning rockets but I ended up only building one so far due to a shortage of ceramic.
  2. Question. Is "they" in this sentence referring to the transit tube paths, or the dupes? Are certain transit tube exits not being used as a path as if they had an interruption somewhere along them, or are the dupes using that exit but turning around mid way as if the dupes are interrupted?
  3. Interesting. So right now it would be entirely accurate to just list them as 1k and 4k potential loads on the circuit. It also looks like there is a minimum duration that a circuit must be overloaded for in order to start doing wire damage, so only in some edge cases would transformers extra power draw be unsafe (which would make it more confusing when it does happen).
  4. Although you would still have an edge case with the other variable power consumer, the battery. It also is not full load or zero. They strangely enough, don't produce any current load either. You can charge batteries at any rate you like using 1k wire without the wire overloading as long as no other consumers use more than 1k. On the other hand, if you are charging the battery through a transformer, the high does see power to the transformer as current and can overload the wire while the low side from the transformer to the battery does not and the wires are safe. Additionally, while players generally build their power network as a tree structure, there is no technical prevention of loops besides the trivial one with a transformer plugged into itself. High side and low side have less meaning in this case, although currently with any loops it seems all the transformers in the loop are active at full load to the next transformer anyways, so in some ways it's simpler ;).
  5. Yeah, I have had no problems with H2 deletion with this design.
  6. I wan to add that this is true for all three door tiles as well: Pneumatic Door,.Manual Airlock, and Mechanized Airlock, and the warning is also displayed on the vacuum when the tiles don't have anything in them.
  7. Is that only the case when you have a battery on the other side? Batteries don't count as potential load, but do count as current load. Transformers should duplicate all their potential load to the upstream circuit, but won't display themselves as a potential load. If you put a normal load on the other side it should display properly on the upstream side. I expect the overload condition is being caused by battery charging. PS: Nevermind. I was wrong. Was not the first and won't be the last. Transformers don't report any potential load to the upstream wire. Steam does not have previous versions of ONI in the betas tab so I can't check if this was previously the case, but for some reason I thought it was.
  8. I finally combined the liquid locked electrolyzers, to prevent overpressure and separate the gasses, into a pumpless LOX production. While it has 10 electrolyzers, the O2 production speed is limited by the two aquatuners able to cool only 8500 grams per second from 75C down to -200C. Right now I am pumping hydrogen, but I left space to do a pumpless Liquid Hydrogen as well. Just as a comparison, pumping 8500 g/s of O2 would be about 4000 W, while turning that much O2 into liquid would be about 2400 W. Avoiding the gas pumps is the key to efficiency.
  9. Airflow tiles when built in space still allow the liquids or gasses in the tile to display the red warning "! Space Exposure" in their status. However, Airflow Tiles, and Mesh Tiles as well do not allow gasses or liquids inside them to escape to space. This is counterintuitive. I suggest that the "! Space Exposure" status for a tile be removed when a airflow or mesh tile is built in that location.
  10. At least now you can put 2 of the 1kW transformers in paralell to get 2kW protection.
