Is the fluid system wiki up to date?

Post by BoostHungry »

Is this wiki up to date?
https://wiki.factorio.com/Fluid_system

I read it and then found some tidbits that suggest it might not be up to date. For one, It doesn't talk about the different flow rates of different fluids (which I believe is a thing now) and second, some things online say that UG pipes *do* count as holding/transporting fluid despite the wiki saying they don't.

So ... Is the wiki still correct? If not, is there a more up to date complete guide to fluid mechanics? Specifically, do UG Pipes count when calculating flow rates? Is there a golden rule about transporting fluids with respect to number of pumps per pipe section?

Thanks!

In https://wiki.factorio.com/Pipe_to_ground the volume is clearly documented. Where do you read that from your linked page and when it’s wrong: it’s a wiki, you can change it... :)

Yes, the fluid system wiki page is up to date.
Different flow speeds for different fluids aren't in the game and the underground-segments of pipes still do not count for holding fluids.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.
