I am having a problem in which the game resets my build material for conductive wire to steel. It's really frustrating to spend 200 cycles crushing eggs for lime to finish a project and realize you've used 5 tonnes of steel to make conductive wire. This might actually be easily solved by making it easier to change materials of existing buildings with other materials, in the same way you can with tiles. Then, instead of having to deconstruct all of the wire and replace it with iron or gold, you could just click and drag over existing wire, like when you're replacing sandstone tile with igneous or whatever. Either that or just disable steel as an automatic material.
I have a conductive wire connecting a steam turbine and a 4K transformer. I really don't understand transformers well. But I believe the wire shown in the image below shouldn't be breaking due to overload as it is on the 'power producers' side of a transformer. Maybe someone can explain. Yes, the wire is made of steel and it says broken 'due to circuit overload'. Also, I have the exact same setup at a different spot and it hasn't ever broken.
