[MOD 0.15] Aquifer Drill

Description
Version history
Funny that this was finished around the same time as the Water Well mod, but it's just coincidence. Note that this drill doesn't require research, so you can use it to bootstrap your factory, then later switch to using the water well pump, which needs electricity but has higher output. Synergy!

It is infinite. It's not interesting. :(

Aren't the regular water pumps infinite as well?

Excellent and simple mod. Would be more excellent if you just wrote the pump rate instead of saying 'mild'.

Yep, plus they don't need fuel and work considerably faster.

I don't usually see mods (or vanilla buildings) provide such details, but it's got a crafting speed of 0.75 and the product is 10 water, so I guess it's just 7.5 units/s?

You can do like bob's one and simply list crafting speed in description.

v1.1 out:
I changed the description, and also the recipe - it now requires a burner mining drill. Finally a good use for all those old things!

You're right ! :D

What a coincidence to write two similar mods at the same time.
As a comparison, my water well pump has approximately the same output rate as a offshore pump. But it needs electricity and steel. More for later game. SYNERGY !

Anyway, nice mod too, I'll use it at the early stages, where water is sometimes too far.

1.2.2 out, compatibility with Factorio 0.15. Increased water output 10x to match change in vanilla liquids. Adjusted icon size to the new 32x32 requirement.

Haven't updated graphics (or the demonstration image).

I use this a lot. Any chance of a 0.16 update?
Thanks in advance!

Not a big fan of those two. Fortunately Aquifer Drill just now got updated to 0.16!
Thanks Author!

Updated to Factorio v0.17. New demonstration image, but otherwise just fixed compatibility errors.
