boiling pure water

Can you eliminate the fluid mismatch between pure water and boilers? I'm going to have a huge excess from making heavy water (Bob's MCI mod). I've read in the forums about using boilers to get rid of excess liquids, but I get a fluid mismatch when trying to do that with pure water.

Thanks!

Re: [0.17.x] Bob's Mods: General Discussion

I suggest we get the ability to boil pure water in boilers. I'm going to have a huge excess from making heavy water.

Thanks!

Re: [MOD 0.15.x]Helmod: Assistant to plan its base.

How do I calculate in Helmod the number of Science lab buildings required for my 100/sec science packs? I've had no luck doing it, everything I try makes it add the recipe for crafting a science lab, not quite what I want :roll: You must select a technology, for sample "Worker robot speed" (infinit...

Re: MOD [ 0.17.x] Bio-Industries

TheSAguy, please explain about the solar power plant and boiler. What is the purpose of the panel at the base of the tower? When I put the mouse pointer on it, I get a red square, and clicking on it doesn't seen to do anything. It won't accept a circuit wire. The power consumption of the boiler is s...

Re: Alerts not appearing to the right of the Quickbar

Using the command:
/alerts enable entity_under_attack
produced the message "Alert type entity_under_attack isn't disabled."
and still no alerts by the quickbar.

Re: MOD [ 0.17.x] Bio-Industries

I don't understand the difference between change terrain - basic and change terrain - advanced. Is the second one faster, or makes the land more fertile, or it makes the fertilized patches contiguous, or it works on worse terrain, or what?

Thanks for your assistance. The alerts issue no longer looks like a simple issue, and I posted it to Gameplay Help, with more data.

Alerts not appearing to the right of the Quickbar

I just discovered that I am not getting alerts (the flashing icon to the right of the Quickbar) that turrets are firing, items damaged, or items destroyed. I haven't found any setting that controls this. Alerts still show on the map, and I get the audible alert if an item is destroyed. It happens wi...

Do you have any radars placed?
Yes. Typically Radar 3 from Bob's Warfare.

I've been jumping around between various saves, at different revisions, and different mod collections. So I'm not sure when & where the problem showed up. Sorry about that.

Added info: the little yellow triangles with the exclamation points do show on the map, but not beside the quickbar.

Re: Simple Questions and Short Answers

I just discovered that I am not getting alerts that aliens are attacking (neither sounds nor the flashing icon to the right of the tool bar). I haven't found any setting that controls this. Where should I look next for the cause?

pump fails to pump from fluid wagon

Normally when a pump is lined up to a fluid wagon, mousing over the pump shows a green box (brackets?) under the wagon, next to the pump. Now I have a case where the box is red and the pump doesn't pump fluid. What am I missing?

Thanks for checking into it. There were other signs the machine was sick, so I rebooted a few hours later. It has not recurred.
