Pipe pressure

Post by dbernard456 »

I would like to have easy ways to transport liquids by pipes over long distances. One of the issue is the pressure, it get to low over great distance to be practical. I would like to have a system that pressurize the flow of liquids.

Yes pumps does what you are requesting.

If one pump isn't enough, then you can just place more in parallel to increase the pressure/flow.

The pipes have figures coded in that work for most situations.

Yes, there is the "Small pump" that does help with long pipes, but also, the "preasure" is relative to the size of the pipe. A storage tank for example has very little preasure (when you consider the flow going through a chain of storage tanks, like you were using them as pipes) compared to the pipe. As such, if you modded the pipes to have a smaller capacity, the preasure increases.

This is one reason why I added pipes with half, and double the capacity of the standard pipe in the game, it effects how fluids flow through them.
