How do you even make buttons do anything.

Building one and closing the lid is fine, but actually connecting things to them is hard. I know i can do fancy things like voice activated buttons but they seem kinda meaningless if i don't know how to activate them.

You make kudzu by using sugar on a botany tray with a weed level of more than 5. It's RnG whether you get a meme plant or kudzu so you'll have to try more than once.

I like to grow spiders. Sometimes on a long drawn out round when im not invested to grind gold's ill just steal a botany tray and use the R&D portable chem to make some.

Transference potions give more reason to make spiders since you can cause spider-geddeon whist still getting greentext (if you have murderbone and escape objectives which are relatively common)

Yes you can theoretically incur and flood spiders by releasing a shit-ton of spiderlings and then hiding via a chameleon projector (which does not aggro simples) while you crawl your way to a pod. (I tried this once but got caught and eaten)

We know that, if a human is in danger, a silicon can lie to protect them. But can an Asimov silicon lie of their own volition? Does asking a question count as ordering them to answer honestly?

only green-eyed spiders, also called nurse spiders, can lay eggs. There is a command for it in the spider tab. You need to eat (wrap) a human/animal/mob to lay one batch of eggs.

You also need to extract juice from this wrapped stage "while the entity is alive" by clicking on the cocoon and sucking out the contents to get the nutriments you need to lay eggs.

Sounds like an error with the z-level code. Crosslinked means you can cross between the z-levels (floating in space transitions you to other z-levels), unless a z-level is self-looping, in which case it's excluded from the 'space cube'. You can't reach Z2 - Central Command/Ops base/Wizard den - no matter how far you float in space.

Do you have all the relevant files ticked?

Yes, yes, yes and yes. They're all deep in space somewhere; you'll come across them every now and then whilst traversing the endless bounds of the final frontier. The clown asteroid is a bananium shuttle crashed into an asteroid; it's got lots of bananium in there you can use for your own HONK mech. The listening post is a little less noticeable, but if you look hard enough, you'll find a couple of airlocks in a floating asteroid somewhere; inside is a Syndicate agent, and if you can crack the code, a pistol inside a safe. The pirate radio station can let you talk on all comms frequencies, and even has its own supply of solar power; the difficult part is getting back. And the black market ship is large, but out of the way; it was used long ago for selling xenomorph hide, and if you look around, you might find evidence of that.

Thanks to a real genass everything is randomized each round. So leaving from the station there isn't a reliable way to find you way around. But once you find one place in space you can get an idea about what else is on the z level you're on. Or you could download the repo from github and look at the maps in the byond editor. I wouldn't recommend it though because you only find them once in a sense, once you know where they are that's pretty much it and its probably more exciting/ memerable(autocorrects to meme table??) to find them on you own by accident

I don't think it does, since the plant item "Killer Tomato" and the mob "killer tomato" are two seperate things. If it does effect it, I would imagine it increases its health, damage or makes it more aggressive or something.

As far as I'm aware yes, but you're probably quicker just teleporting a bomb on top of it or its APC. (the boom will be noticed so it depends how stealthy you wanna be I guess)

It'll die and shouldn't be capable of calling for help since the derelict lacks a proper telecomms setup. The only problem you'd run into is actually getting the AI to unbolt itself so you can move it.

That's my plasmeme room atmos setup, and I'm not sure if it's actually properly reventing plasma.
The pipes running south from the filter never have any plasma in them, although the scrubber loop seems to not have any plasma contained either.
What's going on? Is the plasma just getting deleted in the filter, or do I simply not understand how they work?

If you want a quick, decent bomb do the following.

First, go in the heating chamber and set the two pumps to max pressure.

Grab two plasma canisters and two O2 canisters from the storage, hook both the plasma canisters and one of the O2 canisters to the three port connectors (remove the filter if you're on meta) and hook the other O2 canister to the freezer machine's port, while setting the temperature as low as you can go - the lower the better.

While you do this; hook up an empty yellow can to the heating chamber's output and open the manual valve.

The three canisters should eventually level out in an equal ratio of 66% plasma and 33% O2 in each can, hook them up to the heating chambers input port and ignite. Keep doing this until all of the gas in the canisters is depleted. (I like spam-clicking the igniter since it makes me feel like the gas is getting hotter)

Eventually the yellow canister will be unable to accept anymore hot gas, so, disconnect it from the port and let it heat up (this will take several minutes usually). You can fill up other yellow cans too if you wish.

Next, grab an O2 tank, a plasma tank and a TTV from the table. Filter out the O2 tank with the portable air pump (set to "In" and a pressure of 1013kPA). Disconnect the cold O2 canister and slot the tank in. Fill it up with cold O2, this can vary depending on how actually cold the O2 is but the default freezer usually won't affect things too much from normal. (An emergency O2 tank is actually better since you're usually less likely to put too much O2 in)

You needn't bother with removing the existing plasma from the plasma tank (the Hot Gas doesn't actually have a lot of plasma in it, so you need some starting plasma in the tank that the gas will heat up), just put it in the Hot Gas canister and open it on 1013kPA after it's settled down. Ideally at roughly 97,000 celsius.

Assemble the bomb and, if you did it correctly, you should get a decent sized bomb in less than ~10 minutes without any tinkering or upgrades. Bear in mind this is bare minimum stuff, don't expect a maxcap but you should get a stable, decent explosion from this. Maxcap will require more work than this.

Instead of getting power from radiation it gets it from the bolts it shoots. wrench down the grounding rods and tesla coils where they are. the tesla coils will generate power when shocked, the grounding rods simply stop it form shocking everyone (Set them up in escape if the tesla is loose) make sure to remove the singulo generator from containment before setting a tesla up. obviously you dont need to set up radiation collectors. the tesla generates more power as it grows, but cant escape containment, so leave the PA on 2, hell hack it to set it to 3 for the maximum possible power if you want. a hardsuit or ins gloves gives you 50% protection to teslas. both gives you immunity (as long as you dont sprint into the center, which always dusts you)

Also for some meme reason you are immune to teslas if you hide in lockers/crates/probably body bags so do that in an emergency

Yep, it's just a shame you can't build a thermoelectric generator.

(Yes I am mad this is still not doable)

Is there any particular reason that the TEG parts are not orderable in cargo?

I think it's because it's like the PDA painter and not an actual buildable machine.

Instead of getting power from radiation it gets it from the bolts it shoots. wrench down the grounding rods and tesla coils where they are. the tesla coils will generate power when shocked, the grounding rods simply stop it form shocking everyone (Set them up in escape if the tesla is loose) make sure to remove the singulo generator from containment before setting a tesla up. obviously you dont need to set up radiation collectors. the tesla generates more power as it grows, but cant escape containment, so leave the PA on 2, hell hack it to set it to 3 for the maximum possible power if you want. a hardsuit or ins gloves gives you 50% protection to teslas. both gives you immunity (as long as you dont sprint into the center, which always dusts you)

Also for some meme reason you are immune to teslas if you hide in lockers/crates/probably body bags so do that in an emergency

Thanks for the answer. How do you set it loose? Is a singularity engine still possible to be constructed? And how do the bolts work anyway, are they connected to the SMES storage?
