Suit recharge inconsistencies

Whenever you are in a base with at least one power generator and at least one operational oxygen generator, your suit seems to fill at a constant rate.


The refill rate doesn't seem to care if your base is at 50 oxygen and dropping rapidly as you suck it in, or if your base is at 0 oxygen and the generator is severely overloaded. Notably, once your suit does fill up, the base's oxygen rises very slowly; quite inconsistent with how fast it was dropping to fill your suit and how fast the suit filled when the base was dry.

(Roughly, it looks like you need around 200 stored oxygen to refill completely from an unpowered base, but only about 25 generated oxygen if you start from an empty base you've just cleaned the panels at)


Suit power is the same way but more obvious; a fixed recharge rate regardless of whether your base has severe blackouts at 5 gen / 35 use, a small surplus, or large and charged battery supplies.

I think I've seen this issue, but had trouble figuring out the steps to reproduce it. Thanks for the notes!

The new version (0.30) works much better, although I seem to have found some edge cases in the oxygen supply. I'll try to get a save that demonstrates it.

Upon load, you'll have exactly 200 oxygen (50%), and the unpowered base has zero. You can stand there all day without your suit levels dropping.

If an air leak starts or stops, or you put down a solar panel and then remove it, the suit will tend to start consuming O2 again normally.

Placing and removing the solar panel a few times can get the O2 to lock up again seemingly randomly.



One other thing I noted this go around, is that suit power will refuse to recharge off of batteries.

If you place a solar panel and a battery, it will charge up during the day.

If you then stand on the solar panel at night, your suit won't charge and the power consumption popup shows 0.0 use with 600/600 storage.

Only once dawn arrives does the suit recharge.
