  1. @Skye Storme love the videos so far but i was thinking of a way you “could” improve your water cooling pipes, right now due to the hydroponic farm the center of the base is being super cooled by the water moving through the pipes but the outer pipes which are being used in the sinks, etc. only move water when the facilities are used by your peoples thus while it might not be much the water in those pipes are somewhat stagnant and are soaking less heat by being closer to ambient temperatures.

    My modest improvement is thus much like your De-Germinator 2.0 have the water in the outer pipes circulating through constantly into your cold water reservoir and pull colder water into the pipes which due to being colder water should cause more heat reduction by having a greater temperature difference, at least in theory.

    If this works that way you could make a reservoir of whatever liquid has the coldest temp without freezing and use that aqua tuner i think you called it to bring the temp down to just short of that and make a anti-heat pipeline around the base and in areas of high heat generation to essentially heat proof the base such as on a lava rock without using vacuum or to possibly make a artificial cold biome for ice creation.

    If this would/does work all i ask is a mention for the idea if you didn’t already think or know this. Thank you for the time you took reading this, have fun and beat the heat.

    1. GTG! I’m honored! … if the shaft gets too full then I would guess there would be some kind of eruption? … love your thumbnails btw ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I dont understand why you dont circulate the water? Having it standing still in the pipes makes absolutely no sense…

    But your temperatur is fine for now. It wont be in the long run, when you automate more stuff…

  4. Can you add a BJT time into that announcement at the beginning? You have at least 1 loyal viewer in Xi’an. Please and thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. So, you prefer smooth hatches, do ya? ๐Ÿ™‚ . . .
    So, is this considered mid-game now? . . .
    It was good to hear you having a good time filming this episode! . . .

  6. Trust me a SPOM isn’t difficult to make some people have made really compact ones that use the hydrogen from the electrolyzers to power it

    1. For the stagnant water problem one could make the line into a loop by terminating the pipe with a vent that drains back into the water source. This would keep the water moving.

  7. the temperature limit for electrolyzer ain’t 70 degrees anymore, 70 is the minimum temp, else it takes the temp of the water.

    while i agree that keeping it simple is good, you need to sooner or later start to use heat deletion methods. using water cooling is a good starting solution, but you will run out of cold water unless you have some way to replenish the water or cool it again.

    Also i hardly consider a SPOM a difficuly machine to setup, 1 automation for preassure, 4 wheezeworth to cool the air going trough a hydrogen room. how is that difficult?

    once the cool steamvent have heated the surrounding area you can’t just put a put a aquatuner in it, you will just get a whole lot of steam.

    1. I expect he’ll switch to what’s become the standard Aquatuner/Steamturbine combo at somepoint once he has the research and some steel. What he’s doing here should easily work until he can get that kind of thing built to replace it for water cooling a base.

  8. Smooth hatches? Almost like having a refinery without the excessive power requirements and heat output? Nice. Well, not as efficient mineral wise, still better than the ore crusher…

    People often have the misconception that they can heat/cool an indoor swimming pool with their heating/AC, not only do they find out it doesn’t work like that… if the pool is heated, they don’t have to heat the room itself. It requires thousands times more BTUs to heat a cube of water than air, as such the water, or in the case of an indoor swimming pool, the resulting water vapor, the primary driving force behind the pool room temperature.

    So, which is better? Water cooling. But being submerged doesn’t work so well for O2 breathers, so for _comfort_ reasons, we use the less effective air cooling.

  9. Also if you would like to make your hydrogen pump and Co2 skimmer more efficient you could add a AND logic gate then add a pressure sensor to your hydrogen pump and then add a gas element detector to your Co2 skimmer. Am I being nit picky… Maybe but even if it’s a 4% increase in efficiency it’s still an improvement.

  10. Behold the new religion:
    The big pink thingy.

    Lmao ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Great video as usual. I enjoy all of your Videos my dude!

  11. i have a question so as i see skye is on his 200 cycle but only has 8 guys in isnt this a bit too less
    can someone tell me like a good average number cause i have 10 and im at cycle 75 and have food problems etc
