A little something I noticed recently, while their production of polluted oxygen is probably quite low, their threshold for making it is infinite. not only do they produce infinite amounts of oxygen, they also disregard the surrounding area's pressure, causing insane pressure buildups over time in more outlying areas of the map. I'm currently in a game around cycle 300 or so, and I have pockets of poluted air where the average amoung of air per square is over 60 KILOGRAMS of polluted oxygen. And we're not talking about small little pockets, no I mean huge caverns full of oxygen. Right now, I cannot expand because all this extra air will utterly ruin my base's conditions and there's nothing I can do about it. Even if I were to use pressure doors and whatnot anything I build will bust because of pressure damage. I set up a natural gas geyser power plant, but I cannot fill the resevoir of water to scrub the Co2 due to insane pressure levels in the upper areas, so if I pump any water into the resevoir, it will overpressurise and explode.
Liburatus posted a topic in [Oxygen Not Included] - Suggestions and FeedbackBefore I begin, I gave an initial search of the forums but could not find a pre-existing thread about this. Now, I think it would be really helpful towards liquid/gas efficiency if we could either have a pressure switch for pipes or add additional functionality to the pre-existing valves so that they stop all incoming liquid/gas on the input once the user specified pressure is reached in the entirety of the output system. Problem example: I always place my Co2 scrubbers on Atmo switches. However once they auto turn off, all the 1000g liquid "chunks" coming in from the valve begin to stack on each other. In only a few minutes the output pipes of my loops are suddenly packed with 10kg "chunks" of water. Every time the Co2 scrubbers reactive from ambient Atmosphere, they eat the 10kg chunks and only consume 1kg and the other 9kg is just gone. I found this to happen in all pipe/loop systems using valves. They do a great job at limiting incoming pressure but don't do anything for preventing over-pressure on the output. At this point using valves is completely useless if you do not have a system that is constantly consuming the specified input. You can't even have your Co2 scrubbers consuming all their water because they turn off when not in Co2 causing the stacking effect. This makes you have to manually disable your pumps and micro-manage your pressure levels in your pipes. Has this already been suggested/looked at?
