Infinity pipe should automatically match connected fluid.

Post by NeuralParity »

Now that we have fluid mixing restrictions, why doesn't the infinity pipe automatically match the fluid in the network?

Having to select the correct fluid from the choice of 50+ in a modded game is somewhat annoying/tedious/error prone and completely unnecessary in the majority of use cases.

Please make suggestions to mods to the mod author, cause here it will be simply ignored.

The pipe defaults to voiding fluid (by having no fluid set), not producing. This would change that behaviour. How does allowing copy paste from pipe to infinity pipe to set the "locked" fluid on the infinity pipe sound to you?

@ssilk have you considered stepping down as a moderator now that you don't know the game anymore? It makes me sad whenever I see you posting misinformation with that green name attached to you :/

I’m sorry, I mixed it up with the infinity mode mod and was in train with very bad internet, so I was not able to check it. I shouldn’t have posted it because of that.

The “whenever I post misinformation” sounds like “every day” and reading that felt like a punch into my stomach. :cry:

Rest via pm.
