The mod needs valves very badly.

DyWorld, the successor of DyTech. Adding new systems, items, fluids, machines and enemies! The Material System gives items like pipes and transport a real life feeling (Material property specific capacity/speed/range) and the Metallurgic System gives a new way to smelt ores. The Attribute System governs you! This means whatever you do, you get stronger from it!

The mod needs valves very badly.

Post by andre2 »

I have set up plate production from molten iron, molten copper, molten nickel etc.
From the slag processing there are additional molten metals left over. I want to put thoose in a leftovers fluid bus. So that they are processed at the plant for iron, copper, Nickel plate and so on.
But the copper smelting topped the molten copper fluid bus off, so that the iron slag processing can´t empty the molten copper.

I want valves, with which I can priotize that the fluid bus for leftovers gets emptied first, before the molten metals get used, which are created on site.

The other solution would be, that I use up every byproduct on site. But that would mean, that for iron for example I would have to set up 3 additional plate productions, to dispose the leftover fluids. That is to work intensive, as this setup does not scale up so easily. I would have to connect 3 more belts for the leftover production, for every iron plate productuion blueprint. That is not fun!!!

With my leftover fluid bus, I simply put down another blueprint and connect it. And then I can focus on other things.

If you want to use only DyWorld, you can use tanks and circuit-controlled pumps for this purpose. I, however, recommend that everyone should use Advanced Fluid Handling for all their fluid handling needs. I recommend it for its many wonderful not-valve parts, but you can use only its valves if you so desire. I have one top-up valve per molten metal so far, but Helmod tells me the silver demand for blue science is ... impressive, so I expect I'll need multiple pipes and valves to keep it flowing.

Yes. I used a pump and a tank.
Blue science needs 6 steel belts full of silver plate, if you want half a stone belt full of blue science.
I have set up 3 silver belts so far with a dedicated silver production for Blue Science (the solar panels).
