  1. This is actually worse than it seems, because there's three inter-related bugs. 1) Dupes can't release backpressure from a disabled oil well. (This is easy to fix. You can put a dupe sensor right above the oil well. As a bonus, you can attach a light, so the dupe empties the well faster.) 2) Oil wells require water to allow releasing pressure. This might not sound like a big problem, except that oil areas often get above 100C. This means that the water will often boil in the pipes 3) Oil wells require water in the input pipe to empty the well, or produce oil. To repeat that last bit, a well that contains 9kg of water, is unable to produce oil or be emptied, if the input pipe doesn't see water. This is where everything These problems are exacerbated, since the well would usually be fed 95C water, which doesn't take much extra heat to boil. All together, this is somewhat of a mess, where the bugs interact with eachother to boil water in your gas/oil room, making a mess.
  2. The chain is kind of yucky, and I suggest the no-sand free-water chain from the previous page instead, but if you insist on doing it with PDirt instead of PWater, there’s another way: PDirt->POx->Puft->Slime->Distiller->Algae->Oxygen
  3. What’s all the sand for? Poke shells produce more than enough if you’re making glass. If you’re trying to purify polluted water, try either boiling it or using gulp-fish. Both are a little tricky, but possible. For boiling, you need to make sure your steam turbine is disabled if the pressure in the steam room is too low or it will produce Polluted Oxygen. I generally keep it at 10kg of steam per tile and that seems to work.
  4. Actually, I'm afraid it makes the heat worse, because burning the ethanol for polluted water (and power) is really toasty. On the bright side, you can use that power to cool it. Still, Spaced Out lets you make lots of power with glass.
  5. It's not easy, but it's possible due to pips. 1) Electricity: Trivial 2) Food: Wild from pips 3) CO2: Pump to space 4) Polluted water: Pips->Wild arbor trees->Lumber->Ethonal->Polluted Water 5a) Water: Polluted water->Gulp Fish->Water 5b) Water: Polluted Water->Steam->Water 5c) Water: Lumber (See 4)->Distillery->Polluted Dirt->Crabs->Sand->Water Sieve 6a) Oxygen: Water->O2 6b) Oxygen: Lumber (See 4)->Distillery->Polluted Dirt->Subliminator->Polluted Oxygen->Liquid Oxygen->Oxygen (Not recommended)
  6. I'm still seeing this in the most recent preview build. This is a big problem for me, because we no longer get regolith falling from the sky, so I'm using Gulp Fish to filter polluted water. (after removing germs, and using gravity to separate the water) Except, this means that my water filtration will often just stop working with no warning.
  7. No rover was involved in my case. There was a dupe building by moving through a horizontal door. I'm hoping the fix for r28199 fixes it for me.
  8. I’ve run into the same problem, but I found that you can work around it by putting a dupe sensor connected to an automation wire above the well. That way the well will always be enabled when a dupe is attempting to operate it.
  9. Same. Although, I was getting the bug when my dupes were trying to construct a ventilation duct while standing on or constructing through a powered door. So it may be the vanilla mechanics of the airlock mod that is crashing it for you
  10. I think the bug might be that the salt water is intended to be heated too. The Desalinator produces a tremendous amount of heat, so I'm not surprised it heats liquids. It's not too bad thought. If you run the input and output through a heat-exchanger, you can drop the output temp to around the average of the input and 40C, which is usually cool enough for most applications.
  11. I have the same problem. Usually happens within about 30 seconds on this save. Happened 4 times in a row. I'm on the beta version of Spaced Out. EX156-447892. No MODs. Crash is specifically being caused by constructing a ventilation duct on planet three. (Oil planet. Swamp start)
  12. Thanks. It'd be nice if it could be delivered by ducting, but at least that's better than I thought.
