Is it possible(not asking how) to produce 1000kpa tritium or more in a typical 40 minute round?

It definitely is. I've created multiple room temp canisters full before.
By the way, any amount can be 1000kpa if you heat it enough.

I think the fastest method involves repiping the combustion engine next to atmos to inject a 90/10 mix of Oxygen and Plasma to combust and on the output side filter out the Tritium.

How does a door get electrified permanently? Is it by cutting a certain wire?

Based on term "permanent" I'm going to assume the only way to fix it is to either cut the power wires for the airlock and crowbar it or deconstruct it and build a new one?

Cut the electrification wire. It becomes un-electrified if you mend it again.

So to clarify, if the electrification wire is cut once, then mended, it will still be electrified, but if I find it and do it again it will be repaired? Because all the wires were fine.

If you cut the wire it zaps you and won't stop zapping until you fix it.
If you're the AI you can set a door to electrify indefinitely without fucking with its wiring.

I think the fastest method involves repiping the combustion engine next to atmos to inject a 90/10 mix of Oxygen and Plasma to combust and on the output side filter out the Tritium.


So how does one make tritium in a burn chamber without it immediately condensing into water vapor?

By venting it out and filtering to a canister.

Yeah sorry, I did read through that but the problem I had was kind of specific. I was fucking around as a drone and whenever I interacted with the door, it shocked me, and all of the wires were uncut. When I ghosted a bit later, i clicked on the door and it said "Electrified (Permanently)" or something to that effect, so I guess it was a borg/ai thing.

it means either a disconnect or that the ckey is no longer associated with the body.

1) how the fuck do i make bombs for rnd points? what i do now is
>33/66 oxy plasma
>let burn until ~8000C, then put in an unfiltered plasma container
>cool oxy to -200C
>make bomb
unless im reading wrong this is how it is in the guide on the wiki but i still get firecrackers that get no points

2) how do i make hostile gold slime mobs spawn nonhostile? is it a nuxeno thing?

I use the classic canister heating method and let it burn to ~95,000 celsius before I slot my plasma tank in it

Blood in gold cores should make passive xenobio mobs IIRC

Blood can't make stuff like headslugs though, you want a stabilized pink extract, it gives all the mobs on screen your faction as long as you don't attack them (which is enough to get the headslug out with much less risk of a massive containment breach)

If you're on an adjacent tile, you can talk to people in vacuum

(this actually came up in an episode of the UFO TV series - one of the moonbase astronauts got stranded on the lunar surface and his radio was out. When one of the search party found him, they put their helmets together so sound could conduct between the two - which only sort-of worked as while he did manage to communicate to the rescue party that there was "an alien", they didn't catch the part where the alien was surrendering peacefully and thus shot it)

Could have sworn I've heard people talk from far away but I could be wrong

Though it's not really accurate because I know if the person speaking is not in a vacuum and you are, you will hear them speaking but they won't hear you

Illegal can be obtained from 357 speedloaders anyway, don't think anything rng-less gives ayytech though

Delam to ~35%, then fix whatever the problem was and dump in some N2O if needed
The anomalies only last around ten-thirty seconds, so you'll want to get some neutralizers
An easy way to start the delam is to turn off the pipe entering the chamber
You may want to ahelp beforehand so they know it's not malicious
You should also try it on a local server before the main one so you don't blow a hole in engineering

It has to be a high energy delam. So youll need a decent CO2 mix before pushing the delam.

The default setup filters out separate channels so that servers (not in the linked picture) can record down what's said on each comms' frequency. The big rectangle of confusion in the middle of t-comms allows for relays on other z-levels to be linked to it. So for all the complication, the default setup 1) logs what's said on each comms frequency (which is used even less than lawyers are) and 2) lets people on lavaland talk with the station/each other. It also gets rid of the very minor delay that your linked setup has between receiving/broadcasting the message. The fact that comms is cooled is an RP thing, so it's sorta silly.

Whoever went ahead to make this functionality a thing in game when they could have just left it as behind-the-scenes code, is a genius. Thank you.
