[0.17.69] Drain with burner EnergySource on pump

Post by moon69 »

I've modded a pump to use a burner EnergySource.

Watching LuaBurner.remaining_burning_fuel, you can see it's slowly draining fuel (once fueled) even when freshly built and not connected to any pipes.

Because of:
Pump update function wrote: if (!pumpedAnything)
this->energySource->extractEnergyAndPollute(prototype.energyUsage * ElectricEnergySource::restingEnergyConsumption, ...);
No idea why this code exists. Consider making a bug report, most likely that code was just not adjusted after the possibility to use non-electric energy sources in the pump was added.
Attached is simple mod that shows the issue, with save game with no other mods installed, and it's matching log file.

Try adding fuel_category = "chemical"

Edit: Also try removing ".enabled = true". Your pump currently can't hook up to networks, and I think that's a circuit-set option, not one that should be defined anywhere else.

Also use clearer variable names.
I have mods! I guess!
