UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody. That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly. We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines. Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice. This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here. Original Post: Hey everybody, This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises. Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

"Ethanol can do heat deletion while phase-changing" This knowledge has been known since introduced ethanol. "How?" Ethanol Gas has lower SHC (Specific Heat Capacity) than liquid one. https://oni-db.com/details/ethanol : SHC 2.46 https://oni-db.com/details/ethanolgas : SHC 2.14 For example, "Repeating evaporation and condensation of 200kg ethanol" Require positive thermal energy to boil 200kg ethanol from 70c to 80c 2.46 * (80 - 70) * 200 = 4920 (kDTU) Require negative thermal energy to liquefy 200kg ethanol gas from 80c to 70c 2.148 * (70 - 80) * 200 = -4296(kDTU) Distance lacked heat energy: 4920 - 4296 = 614(kDTU) Generated heat from Aquatuner using water coolant : 528(kDTU/s) Result heat exchange: 528 - 614 = -96(kDTU/s) "Wait, will be it stronger than AETN!?" "Yes, but this is just a hypothesis. And in reality, you won't be able to handle large amounts of ethanol that way" However, some implementations are here @Blazing Falken 's "Crying Crab Cooler" GearHead-Gaming's ethanol boiler I tried more practical build. Self-cooling was succeeded. Structure & Demo A important trick is temp-shift plate. This keeps chill Igneous rock tile and earns heat capacity. I didn't wait for more than a dozen cycles to get this result It seemed that heat deletion was stronger than expected Advantages This can build with resources only start forest biome. Aluminum Ore. refined Aluminum Ethanol by wild Arbor-tree IgneousRock It's reasonable to play early-mid game in Arboria and Oasisse Arboria lack Gold-Amalgam. Start biome in Oasisse is surrounded by hot desert biome. It can be Selfpowered by petroleum generator. A tuned petroleum generator generates 3000W 4 Ethanol distiller requires 240 * 4 = 960W liquid pump requires 240W Instead Carbon skimmer, using door pump eraser. Totally, surplus power is : 3000 - (1200 + 960 + 240) = 600W How it works NOTE： This tips for pre-turbine technology. After enable to build steam turbine, this will be outdated system in your game.
