What I'm working on now

(2015-12-03, 07:25 AM)KuramaFox Wrote: Alternatively, we could have the Steam engine actually be relatively high efficiency (partly considering it would require power and thus fuel to actually refine fuel), but heavy and low power, and to run off RAW oil resource.

Or.. the boiler / heat exchanger pipes could be a part that requires heat from burners that could have a different one for each fuel, with one for natural resources that burns wood and such and another oil / gas burner that uses the raw oil resource or refined fuel as an option. Heat outputs and fuel expenditure could be somewhat balanced with the energy content of their real life counterparts in mind and the player could then easily opt to using whichever resource they have in surplus.

The boilers / heat exchangers could then be shared by the nuclear reactor that produces the same type of heat as a resource, because why not!

A unit combining steam pressure and volume could be the end product and converted to electricity or raw power by using the existing fuel engine generators connected to either steam pistons or turbines.

A steam engine that doesn't have enough heat, wouldn't produce enough power and the hotter it runs, the better it would be, up to the point where the steam production exceeds steam demand and excess would be vented through safety valves and lost.

As fire is implemented, it could even require certain precautions to prevent surroundings catching fire, such as not building the steam engine on top of and out of wooden planks Big Grin
