Can water be completely drained

Post by Lord Singod » Mon Oct 02, 2017 4:20 pm

I've play Factorio for only a few months and my bother told me that the water will eventually drain out. As much as I would like to believe my brother, I can't help but think this is false. I only had one world and my entire base is being powered one little pump in a very small lake [i'm talking like a 5x5 pond] and it hasn't budged a bit. If some one can confirm this to be true or false, I would be most thankful.

Basically, this makes sense because these small ponds actually go down to the planets core
The reason why you do not realise is because the fish in these bodies of water keep dying, reducing the depth
This makes sure that the surface water level never drops ;)

Gaming logic!
Been binge watching Aquasitions Incorporated "The C Team" recently.
A fun spin off of the original D&D game.
Also, the fanbase is quite active, which means lots of fanfiction!
