looks like it is working as intended...alercah wrote: ↑Fri Jul 03, 2020 7:41 amI need to verify it in practice, but I believe that you can now violate conservation of energy with hydrogen, since Bob made it burnable, even on tier 1 buildings with no modules:
This takes a lot more space than a coal setup, but it's far more pollution-efficient due to the pollution reduction on hydrogen, and it's not dependent on coal supply. It's also much more resource-efficient than solar, and though it probably loses out space-wise too, it's at least in the same order of magnitude.
- Hydrogen has a fuel value of 33 kJ/unit.
- You can produce 60 hydrogen per second using 4 electrolysers set to purified water electrolysis.
- You can produce 100 purified water per second, to fuel them, using a single hydro plant.
- This collectively costs 1.35 MW.
- Voiding the oxygen and saline water costs another 62 kW.
- The energy produced in the hydrogen is 1.98 MW.
- This nets you 578 kW.
we do want it to be positive, but not stupidly overpowered, as you said, its space consuming, it has had a slight buff from bobs fuel value. The main reason is not to create these cycles, but to have a useful "vent" of hydrogen and hydrocarbons. I mean, 4 electrolysers, a hydroplant and clarifier are hardly small or low energy units. This looks pretty close to the "you make surplus energy from coolant reprocessing" system.
