I have been enjoying your mods but I think I now have a blocker, or at least one to me.
The blocker is due to the injection of Super-alloy too early in the research stream, in particular, the addition to the recipe for the Centrifuge.
I have all the ingredients available to make the Super-alloy except for HE4 which has me at a standstill. I know of only 2 ways in which to get initial HE4. The first is the crack Liquid Clean Air into Dry Gas Stream which gives off HE4 as a byproduct. The second is through Particle Accelerator. Then after the ability to create Ethanolamime, the main flow is as laid out in your diagrams to start with petgas through to Dry Gas Stream where combined with Ethanolamine to create High Purified Gas and then on through the chain. https://imgur.com/a/OQuU6
Ethanolamine requires GenLab and Bio Reactors for the creation which both require Super-alloy so that path is not viable.
The cracking of the Liquid Clean Air is blocked at the previous point in the chain of creating Cold Clean Air. The recipe used to call for Cold Air and Filtration Media but was changed to Cold Air and Biofilm. Biofilm cannot be made because it requires Rayon, which needs Fiber which is made in the Centrifuge.
I have looked for other methods to get the HE4 including the Particle Accelerator which can make it if you have a Proton Donor, which of course is made with Rayon. I don't see anything else in the early chain that will yield the early HE4.
Have I identified a deadlock or am I missing a critical research path?
Good point, i will check it out asap!!
