Drains

Do they actually work? Don't seem to for me. --Agun (talk) 19:29, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure they do. Prior to installing them water seeped for about 15 tiles out the doors and into other rooms. Drains solved it, I don't even see water on the floors anymore. Askiba (talk) 19:58, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Drains currently work by stopping flow past it, rather than actually draining. Thus only drains in doorways really work. Simon w (talk) 09:07, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Or put one directly under each showerhead. Unfortunately drains in the middle of the shower room have no effect at all. Pod (talk) 09:57, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Known Bugs

Could it not be argued that not having a phase matching device is not a bug but a feature that isn't implemented yet? After all, you really can't put two generators (substations, or whatever they actually are!) on the same ring unless they are running in the same phase

Maybe that's intended to be so. They colored generators and electricity cycles differently. If you want a big prison, which uses lots of electricity, you have to plan your electricity cycles very well in advance. Why should that be a bug or a not implemented feature?

That's actually pretty much what I meant, I just failed to make it clear (apologies). While there will most likely be changes to the way electricity works in the future, I would certainly not describe the current functionality as bugged.

Basically I was wondering if anyone objects to me removing the line below from the bug list.

'There is not yet a phase match device, so you cannot connect two generators to the same wires'


P.S. Thanks! I was wondering how to do that, it's probably in the help somewhere but I couldn't see it.
