pvp strat in case of bad solution
-- edit:
oh, since pipe will replace pipe-to-ground, it is possible to trigger above case without usage of ghosts

This situation is really hard to fix, I will try to figure something out but right now it seems so complicated (requiring new routines for searching the fluid systems and figuring stuff out) that it would not be worth fixing. I have changed fluid mechanic though to prevent the exploit that mixing can be used for so there would be no motivation to do this.

RIP this exploit. It was so fun to turn water into oil :(

We will see how strong this workaround is :)

From details of second fix (PM's) i think it will be not possible to exploit

Wow it made it through censorship!

I have added an automatic fix of fluid mixing when two systems with different fluid are connected.
That does not cover all potential fluid mixings, but it covers all of the ways mixing can be done that we know of now.
