  1. I produced over 2000kg of steel needed to make the rocket engine ( not sure if I had 2100 or 2200kg, but somewhere around there ), and the icon lit up indicating I had enough material to build it. I started building it, and after a while, ran out of steel with 800+ kg left to go. I built nothing else with steel during this time, and I'm pretty sure I even refined one or two more batches thinking I would need more for the research modules and command module.

  2. Why sieve the ph2o coming out of the distiller instead of just letting it evaporate into more po2?
  3. You showed the pressure all the way to the right, but under the second vent there must be a fair amount of steam diffusing over? I can believe the others eating it all before any can make it to the fifth intake, but the second and third have to be getting a fair amount.
  4. That's how I run my turbine too, but my question was how do you make sure only the left intake port has the 20kg pressure and the other 4 are near vacuum?
  5. I'm confused. It sounds like you are saying that you keep 4 of the ports in a near vacuum so they effectively can't consume the 2kg/s. How is that different than just blocking them? And it doesn't look like there is anything stopping the steam from moving to the right naturally and being gobbled up by the turbine, so what is keeping the left port sufficiently pressurized?
  6. Holy crap, that is maddeningly FUBAR. Why are the devs not fixing this?
  7. Provides power to machines that want it, and if ( and only if ) there is any leftover, then it recharges. If it prioritized recharging itself over supplying power to other buildings, it would be completely useless.
  8. What gasses are floating around in the room besides steam? Some have said that if you have 3 gasses mixing it causes this problem. On the other hand, I only have steam and oxygen in my steam turbine room and it seems to keep slowly converting steam into oxygen. I vacuum out my steam vent rooms both to avoid this bug and to make sure there is the most room for steam to come out of the vent.
  9. Umm, no dude. Batteries provide power as long as they are not empty.
  10. I think there are more codex entries than POI objects so I guess this is the only way you can unlock them all.
  11. Is the priority of the storage containers higher than the receptacle?
  12. People keep reporting this ( search first? ), but Klei keeps ignoring it. It seems like they aren't monitoring this forum anymore.
  13. Is anyone actually monitoring this forum anymore?
  14. Here is an auto save back from cycle 747 where I had this nice steam turbine setup going to delete heat from the metal refinery and as an added bonus, use the power generated to run a steel aquatuner to cool the base. It worked great for a good 10 cycles, when it lost pressure, and I noticed gas had been deleted. It turns out there was a small pocket of polluted oxygen floating around, which people on the forums say leads to gas deletion, even though I swear when I sealed the room, there was nothing but oxygen in there. I then added pure oxygen from the electrolyzer and water from the steam vent until the pressure was high enough ( ~25kg ) and let them fight with the oxygen mostly trapped at the top, but sometimes poking down to get the turbine to see low pressure oxygen on top and high pressure steam on the bottom. A run of steel in the refinery would kick the heat over 500 F to toggle on the turbine, let it run for a good while powering the aquatuner to help add more heat, and eventually shut off at 455 F. This went on and off nearly a dozen times before I noticed the gas deletion. 9 cycles later, the gas pressure is down to only ~16kg of steam and oxygen.
