Hey folks, Another little video here showing my new favourite thing : I humbly present to you The "HMMMNGH" The Highly Measured Magma Manipularatiser Niftily Gathering Hotties In short, it's a tileable module used for handling your toasty hot igneous rock fresh from the volcano. Paired with any sort of magma solidifying setup it'll happily let you send streams of precisely thermo-regulated solid orange stuff direct to where you need it. I opted for something simple like this : (you could also use lots of doors if you like, but I think old @Tonyroid used them all up in his last build ) Anyway, the premise is simple - Sweeper collects the debris, puts it into a visible loader. The scorching debris is dropped on a mesh tile for later storage, allowing more magma to be cooled (for steam turbines etc) and converted into igneous battery form. This is where the module comes in : The right chute is where our hot igneous is stored - on a mesh tile within a vacuum. The sweeper loads an inverted loader which is bridged into a conveyor loop. This loop is passing through some diamond window tiles with a space in the middle reserved for a thermo sensor, 1kg of hydrogen, and a diamond temp shift for fun. This very precisely adjusts to the temperature of the igneous within the loop, and when connected to a conveyor shutoff allows us to easily dump the igneous when it's reached an undesirable temperature. The left loader then re-stocks the loop, and the cycle continues. Spent igneous leaves the chute on the left. Here's two chained together : Heres an overall build showing petroleum boiling, sour gas cooker, and steam all daisy chained together : Way more info in the youtube vid above, and the save file is in the description. Idea being I can use my scorching hot igneous to boil petroleum to sour gas, and make methane/natural gas - I can then use it to cook oil -> petroleum, then dump it into water to make steam, before finally going via turbines, slicksters, and ultimately stone hatches. The beauty is in the handling I'm off to bed. xox -Life
