Finally I think you make your thought more clear, Did i make you crazy? but i really appreciate your explanation to almost each of us.Taipion wrote: Where, anywhere in this whole thread, did I say, or even hint at, that the recipe should not require steam (= water above 100°)?!
I did not!
What I did say though, frequently, and what everyone is outright ignoring, is the fact that it should not be necessary to have a separate fluid for that!
The game lacks the means (damn it, I must be typing these exact same words at least the 5th time in this thread, as no one cares to read anything before posting -.-)...
The game lacks the means to fully utilize the information available, displaying water as steam when it's above 100° should be all that is needed, yet, it was apparently not possible to make this temperature based distinction in a recipe.
Therefore, making steam a separate fluid, whereas the only actual difference (ingame, mind you!) is the temperature, is a bad thing, as it is a workaround for not being able to correctly make use of the heat property, instead of fixing that.
Let me try to repeat what you think in my words: you are suggesting steam and water shall be put as the same ITEM in the game, say just name it as H2O.
But the Coal liquefaction shall not accept cold H2O, and it need to pass the boiler to become hot H2O, so that the Coal liquefaction will start.
And you are also suggesting the hot H2O and cold H2O can mix in the game by pipes / containers, but may be the temperature will drop below 100C and cannot start the Coal liquefaction.
Did I misunderstanding anything?
