Gas Gas Gas

News 2 comments

Today, I'd like to pass some gases information that we'll have in the game!
We have been discussing gases in the forum, and we have just finalized the first few ones: Oxygen, Hydrogen, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, and Methane!

If you have tried the demo, the gas flow mechanic will be pretty much the same as the gravity.


Here are the new equipment!

EquipmentList


Eleksis - uses Water and Power to make Oxygen and Hydrogen!

Eleksis


Sabatier - uses Power, CO2, and Hydrogen to make Water and Methane!

Sabatier


Humicon - (Humidity Controller) - Absorbs selected gases and water vapor.

Humicon

With Humicon, you can selectively absorb the gasses depending on where the equipment is located. You'll mainly use this to absorb CO2 emitted by the crew, or other gases when leakage occurred!


Gas Vent - Allows you to selectively release gas type from the tank.

GasVent

Right now, we still don't have final use for Methane, but we'll probably use it as a power supply in the future for Fuel Cells, as well as Hydrogen.

Also, we're still figuring out the best way to obtain Nitrogen. We might just settle for Asteroid Mining to obtain them.

You'll have to mix Oxygen and Nitrogen in your spaceship to avoid Oxygen toxicity. With the new gas system, we'll finally be able to introduce the first few ways for our crew to die.
Plants will also be able to process oxygen and CO2 in the future.


It was really fun working on this section of the game, because I am not really knowledgeable at science, but by tackling this feature, I was able to learn a few.

If you got some gas ideas, feel free to comment or join the forums!
We'll still need more gas for the future!

The next few days will probably focused on getting some ideas for crafting the equipment and the ingredient/recipe to make them.
So components like LCDs, Compressor, Furnace, Condenser are one of the few craftable components to build equipment.

Have fun on your weekend everyone!
