I was trying to cool a component in a reactor to 100% durability, so I could upgrade it, but I couldn't.
There are two bugs related to this, that I could find, but the end result seemed to me to be kinda open ended:
If durability is actually temperature for components, since a component with half durability can regain it's durability simply by cooling, then are the components not *cooling* 100%, but getting to 9,999 out of 10,000? I don't know if that's supposed to happen, but I would have thought they would have been able to completely cool down. The first bug's status is confirmed, but that's for brand new components placed in a brand new (i.e. zero temperature) reactor instantly take 1 durability damage. For the second 'bug', I'm not sure if it was decided that the components are used, so they can't be upgraded as intended. Also, I'm thinking that 'confirmed' for the first means it's happening, but not necessarily that it's a bug? Player did respond to the second bug, but to be honest, I didn't understand what Player said, but that could well be me :o)
Personally, I'd like to go with the percentage being less of a damage/used issue and more of the measure used in the reactor i.e. it's temperature. Which means a component can cool *completely*, which would mean 100% durability.
To put in another way though, I'd really like to be able to upgrade used components :o) I know they have been used, but I don't think the components are being damaged (like a pick - but even then a pick can be repaied to 100%), but being heated and just need to cool. In addition though, the problem I have is that in order to get the better and better components, I'd have to make brand new ones, then instantly upgrade them, which means I have older ones lying around doing nothing. For example, due to the current system, all the used 10k Coolant Cells can't be upgraded to 30k and then 60k. They can't be used in machine upgrades either (the overclocker and range upgrades). So as I expand and upgrade, I just have to make them all over again and have the others doing nothing as they have been superseded.
