Re: Geothermal - A clean, but powerful power source all day long

I'm talking about second building, where hot liquid + cold liquid = steam happens, that was the subject of my first questioning. About the "API doesn't allow it".

Re: Geothermal - A clean, but powerful power source all day long

I'll download it when get home but for now: This mod has 2 structures, right? One for the heat source, other to boil the water? What is that red thing? Is it possible to make just 1 structure over the heat source with 1 in (water) 1 out (steam)? But i believe the way you setup all this is to make th...
