Lilalaunekuh posted a topic in [Oxygen Not Included] - General DiscussionAfter reading about possible idea for what we could do with the gravitas, I settled for an aquarium. So here are some facts: Able to deal with 15.000 pacu. [Limited by the conveyor chut, but the build could "easily"(it would take double the cooling infrastructure^^) support 30.000 pacu.] Increases it´s population by 8 pacu over 100 cycles for a total of 300kg algae. [I feed precisely 3 kg algae each cycle.] The clock sensors which control my feeding tank are set to 0,8%. [Even 0,9% allows the sweeper to start a 2. action and drop some algae.] A switch for a low fps mode.[The switch on top changes if the pacu eggs get delivered to a single tile of liquid or the big aquarium.] Now here comes the scary part about cooling the aquarium down to a range of 10-25°C (to keep all pacu morphs alive): Here is a small improvement concerning the cooling of the little spot of liquid: I asume we reached 15 000 pacu, so we hatch a pacu every second. If we asume we started with 15 000 "standart" pacu, the average temperature of a spawned pacu should be 29,65°C. => We would need to remove roughly 3,25 M DTU/s if our goal is just to reach 24,95°C. Most of the time there shoulnd´t be a good use for the siphoned heat. [A steam turbine is still power negative and therefor not a good use.] We only need to keep the gulp fish from overheating, which doesn´t mean we have to cool all pacu down. The pacu only exchange temperature with the liquid they are swiming in, so if I choose a less conductive liquid I would need to remove less heat. So I settled for a good solution:
I don't want to deconstruct it or change it's shape, but I do want to use the structure for... something. So, idea's! Gimme! Current idea's: Telescope array. I already have three satellite dishes on it's roof, and I have room to add a telescope as well.. Cosmothermal power plant. The regolith landing on the facilities roof has heat I could extract and run a turbine with. Regolith Shoveller habitation. Because why house Meep in the main base with everyone else when I can instead grant him an action-packed existence of shovelling starpoop and crippling abandonment issues?
