[1.1.28] No pollution from Heat Energy Source

Post by wasmoo »

I created a heat-powered radar:

radar.energy_source = {
type = "heat",
max_temperature = 2000,
default_temperature = 15,
specific_heat = "100KJ",
max_transfer = "1000YW",
min_temperature_gradient = 1,
min_working_temperature = 100,
minimum_glow_temperature = 80,
pipe_covers = data.raw.boiler["heat-exchanger"].energy_source.pipe_covers,
heat_pipe_covers = data.raw.boiler["heat-exchanger"].energy_source.heat_pipe_covers,
heat_picture = data.raw.boiler["heat-exchanger"].energy_source.heat_picture,
connections = ...,
emissions_per_minute = 600000
}

When powered, this produced no pollution.

Seems like it, pollution was never written in to the system

I will move this to modding interface requests

I think this is also true for heat-based crafting machines. The pollution will show up in tooltips but not in-game.

Indeed, heat energy sources generally cannot produce pollution. I added this information to the docs for the next doc release.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.
