The Pipeline is used to transport fluids between structures in a similar manner to Conveyor Belts. It can transfer up to 300 m³ of fluid per minute.

Pipelines, as seen in the 0.3 Experimental Update Trailer

In order to transport fluids vertically, a sufficient amount of pressure has to be reached. A 1 meter climb equals 1 pressure. Pipeline pressure can be increased using a Pipeline Pump.

The volume of each individual Pipeline segment is set by its length.

Fluids[edit | edit source]

The Pipeline can transport one of the following type of fluids below:

Every Pipeline segment can only contain 1 type of fluid at a time.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Pipeline is a metal tube. As long as it has a sufficient straight segment, a Flow Indicator will appear in the middle of the segment, which is a set of 3 rings on a retractable rail. As fluid flows into the pipeline, the rings move away from the center proportional to the percentage of fluid content, with a colored window beneath displaying the type of fluid it is carrying. The pattern of the pulses also indicates the flow direction.

Flushing[edit | edit source]

The Pipeline contents can be emptied by interacting with a segment of it (default E) and then turning the flush lever in its UI.

There are 2 options:

  • If 'Pipe Segment' is chosen, only that segment is flushed.
  • If 'Entire Pipe Network' is chosen, all pipes connected to the selected pipe are flushed.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Pipelines were memed by the community since the start of the game.
