Sure, but why would you ever do it in your head which is slower and has a chance to be incorrect when perfectly efficient and correct tools exist and are incredibly accessible?

Anyways I'm not disagreeing with any of you guys I'm just saying what maintainers would say if you tried to add telesci back

That's a fair criticism. Ideally the chance of messing it up/being slow is what would balance it out, with better telescientists being faster and more accurate. Unfortunately that can never really be the case with tools being readily available (and easy to make).

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? I want to make a really basic bot that tries to get close to a set target (jesus zimmer) when the target speaks. I can't make it take more than one step towards the target. I also don't know shit about IRL circuits

I don't know if they removed the ability to import code to generate the assemply, so here's a gallery with my assembly https://imgur.com/a/00S9n

It hears someone speaking, if it's the target it tries to locate it, if the target is found it calculates the direction, then steps towards that direction. There's where it breaks, I set it to activate a tenth/second delay and then recalculate the location but it just stops.

The turrets don't shoot cyborgs for some reason, I presume the turrets have silicon faction but don't quote me on that

if simply screwdrivering it doesn't fix it, multitooling the open button and then connecting it to the blast door should do it.

EMPs pulse borg wires and can put them into lockdown in one shot if the RNG cooperates and it usually does

Beyond the impossible.

Epinephrine prevents oxygen damage from going above a certain amount and improves your condition if you're in critical, it also has a 1 in 5 chance per tick to reduce your stun and knockout timer and helps with stamina regeneration. If you know you're gonna be in a fight, it's a good idea to dose yourself up with your epipen before hand to give yourself a slight edge.

30u of either will OD you, stick with 29 at most. And it should be difficult for you to lose unless your opponents is well-armed. Tricord has a 4 in 5 chance of healing 1 brute/burn/toxin damage every tick and mixing it with epi will almost make any fight survivable, unless your opponent specifically kills you or you suffer critical bloodloss

Atropine is a much stronger version of epinephrine but doesn't have the anti-stun benefits. Ephedrine is the opposite, no crit healing but powerful anti-stun/knockout and stamina regen (also greatly increases your movement speed)

Do built tellyportas work on the shuttle?

Hand teles and tracking beacons don't work. Neither does swarmer teleportation.

Crushed bluespace crystals, Clockwork and Nar'sian teleportation do work and, presumably, any form of teleportation that isn't based upon bluespace.

Cat eats/tails are not currently enabled on Sybil, so if they bother you that much you can play on that server instead of Bagil.

Pyro grenades heat up their reagents on mixing so you don't need to separate out your pyrotechnics or put in a separate heating reagent. Bluespace beakers filled with blackpowder pyro grenades are very powerful and very spammable, you can easily rig them up with signallers to function like regular bombs as well and just blow holes all across the station's hull.

Cryo grenades I can't think of a real use for

Make the frame out of metal, place it infront of a wall, then, face said wall and hit the frame with a screwdriver and it will snap to the wall. You may need to alt-click the floor to see it.

How do single tank bombs work?
What I expected was for the mix to ignite, and continue until the tank ruptures normally. What ends up happening is that there's a spark, and the tank just vanishes and let's out the mix for an underwhelming fire.
I've tried oxygen with plasma/tritium in a bunch of different ratios/temperatures, mixes I'd expect to have at least some kind explosion of any kind just does nothing, really. I don't get it

In real life no.
In game wew what a meme.

Plasma and oxygen start reacting at 400 degrees. If you fill the can with a mix just below that temp the igniter will push it above and make it explode, but that's just a weak grenade size. I know other people can manage bigger but they are magic.

Good one

Isn't it exactly 100C/373.15K they react? That's the thing though, unless I'm missing something, the igniter isn't raising the temperature. It just releases the gases and then lights it. The tank just vanishes
It even makes a tank with nothing in it just vanish.

Question on the mechanics of pyrosium and cryostalane

Do these chems heat faster and deplete oxygen more rapidly if there's more pyros/cryost present in the container?

Do they heat containers faster if there's less chems in the container, e.g. 50u vs 100u of water?

Polyphynx wrote:How do single tank bombs work?


Well I think I figured it out.
I might be wrong, but it seems like the code for single tank bombs just looks at the temperature of the mix, and the total moles of plasma and oxygen, then does some calculations for the explosion size.
The problem is it's not doing anything with the mix. There's no actual reaction happening, no temperatures rising. It just makes up an explosion size based on volume and some threshold temperature, meaning you can fill a tank with 100% plasma at the highest threshold temp, and get the biggest explosion for some reason. Adding oxygen actually makes the explosion worse/non-existent, and tritium and other gases aren't even taken into account.

All of the oxygen is depleted instantly on reaction, and the temperature is raised/lowered instantly.
Having less chems makes it heat up/cool down more (again, instantly)
Same with having more of pyros/cryost with more oxygen. Makes the effect stronger (a lot more so than having less of the chem to heat up)

Still, my support will always go towards the rightful Lord of Yurop, God-Emperor Donald Trump the Trumpst. Trumpingrad for life. He'll make an indiscriminate number of countries great again.

Eating.

So what foods can you eat with it? Swear it never worked for me.

That's a...depressingly small list of foods.

Well I think I figured it out.
I might be wrong, but it seems like the code for single tank bombs just looks at the temperature of the mix, and the total moles of plasma and oxygen, then does some calculations for the explosion size.
The problem is it's not doing anything with the mix. There's no actual reaction happening, no temperatures rising. It just makes up an explosion size based on volume and some threshold temperature, meaning you can fill a tank with 100% plasma at the highest threshold temp, and get the biggest explosion for some reason. Adding oxygen actually makes the explosion worse/non-existent, and tritium and other gases aren't even taken into account.

Do these chems heat faster and deplete oxygen more rapidly if there's more pyros/cryost present in the container?

Do they heat containers faster if there's less chems in the container, e.g. 50u vs 100u of water?


All of the oxygen is depleted instantly on reaction, and the temperature is raised/lowered instantly.
Having less chems makes it heat up/cool down more (again, instantly)
Same with having more of pyros/cryost with more oxygen. Makes the effect stronger (a lot more so than having less of the chem to heat up)


Not entirely correct, you only need 1u of Pyrosium and upon creation it makes the whole container instantly have a degree of 20K, although in practice you can't make less than 3u, if you do these 3u first in a macro mix, the subsequent chemicals will equalize the temperature closer to 300K.
If you mixed the pyrosium last and already have close to 100u in the container, there will be much more oxygen needed to heat your now close to 100u of 20K chemical mix.
Having more or less Pyrosium will affect the formula but only in the way of increasing or decreasing the volume of the container. It is only the amount of absorbed oxygen that actually affects temperature changes.

The mathematical formula is as follows when you add oxygen to a mix containing pyrosium:
Code: Select all
(existing_temp * existing_volume + 300 * added_volume) / newvolume + added_volume * 10
