A new Vanilla Petrochem Mod (0.17) is in the makings

Post by Claviduck »

Hi.

i am currently developing a mod that enhances the vanilla oil processing by refining the 3 compound oil products heavy oil, light oil and petroleum gas further. There are many intermediate fluids and some items integrated and they all have their specific purpose. In example, diesel will be used in a generator to produce (hopefully local) energy, gasoline will be used as a potent fuel for vehicles, olefines will be used as a basic chemical product for plastics or "Kohlenstofffasern". The processes should be a blend of vanilla playability and realism. Obviously, there will be generalisations like having aromatics that include all BTX chemicals in one product. I will bring out a test version of this mod soon and look forward to some feedback!

I have a question. Is it somehow possible to rewrite the code of the entity "oil-refinery" so that it appears as a larger entity with more than 3 fluid outputs? Everything is working fine with the modding, even though i am new to this, but i cant get the entity changes done...

Here is a description:

- Basic Oil Refining now produces not one but instead five oil basic products: Long Residue, Raw Fuel Oil, Raw Naphta, Raw Kerosene and Petroleum Gas.
- These products are needed in the following chains that try to emulate realistic processes: (many with some byproducts)
-- Hydrotreating (with the precious Hydrogen; no simple electrolysis here to produce this...) raw oils, yields sulfur.
-- Steam Reforming to yield Hydrogen
-- Steam Cracking to yield Olefines and Pygas
-- Catalytic Reforming of Naphta to yield Reformate
-- Extracting Reformate to yield Aromatics and Gasoline
-- Mixture of Kerosene and Fuel Oil to yield Diesel
-- Fractional Vacuum Rectification to yield Bitumen, Oil and Short Residue
-- Delayed Coking to yield Lubricant, Oils and Coke
-- Coke and Fuel Oil used in special Metallurgy Sector (Blast Furnace)
-- Rocket Fuel from Kerosene and Hydrogen
-- Plastic from Olefines
-- Chemical Science Packs from Aromatics(TESTING NEEDED!)


Beside that:
-- Synthetic Rubber
-- Transport Belts from Rubber, Gears and Lubricant
-- Oil burning facility
-- If Asphalt Roads installed: new Asphalt recipe with Bitumen(can not be used anywhere else yet)
-- New Concrete recipe with Dross from Metallurgy recipes
-- Carbon(PLANNED)
-- ...

I looked after it. It is module graphics from the Space Exploration mod.
