Transport of Fluids/Liquids via Barrels or Tank Wagons

Post by ssilk » Sat Aug 29, 2015 1:19 pm

This is basically around the idea to transport liquids/fluids without pipes.

Open questions:
- Currently the liquid looses the heat, when stored in a barrel. Makes sense. But It would be a cool idea to transport hot liquids (hot water) over far distances to make energy out of it. Mabe only possible via liquid tankers?
- There are currently two directions:
A) Using barrels
B) Using tank wagons
Both directions seems to have it advantages, so I would add
C) Both. See also https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... 866#p97866

Option B) is eventually planned for v0.13. See roadmap https://forums.factorio.com/forum/vie ... ?f=3&t=678
Option A) seems to be very simple to implement.
