Just when I thought I finally understood how fluid pipes work I found out that I was wrong again.
Setup should work, right? WRONG! The boiler on the right (or left, one of them) overpressurizes, and the merged pipeline doesn't get the expected 512 Steam/t!
As far as I can tell, what happens is the following:
- Merged pipe pressurizes partially.
- One of the pipes above the boilers ticks first, and fills the merged pipe.
- The other pipe ticks, can't fill the merged pipe because there isn't enough space for all the steam, and the steam gets stuck.
I tried a bunch of different pipe sizes, nothing worked.
Honestly at this point it feels like the pipe tooltip capacity is false advertising, because I pretty much haven't gotten the advertised bandwidth ever...
