    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.

  2. Are you able to overload the small transformer with no batteries on the load side? I put 28kW of load on a small transformer and it never turned on more than 1kW of those loads.
  3. I think the large power transformer is not working as intended, or as it says in the in-game description of the item. To test this, I hooked an 8kW source with 400kJ of battery storage to 30 tepidizers. A single large Power transformer limits the power to 3.84kW (4 tepidizers) in this configuration, most of the time. This implies the 4kJ of transformer storage gets used in 1 second. One tick every 4 seconds, it outputs 25.92kW (27 tepidizers) - turns out 3 weren't covered so this is the max load. No line damage noted yet. If we can take the transformer energy reading at face value, this implies the energy is being used in 68 msec. A single small power transformer limits the power to one tepidizer (960W). All the time. So this at least appears to be working as intended. Btw there is no output_log file in OxygenNotIncluded_Data
  4. Same has happened to me on multiple occasions, and I am not sure it is limited to saves 1 or 2 cycles before landing. Seems to happen for every rocket that lands _after_ I load a save game.
