      !!FORUM DOWNTIME!!   01/16/18

      On 2018-01-27 the forums will be going down at around 1100 GMT0 for up-to 5 hours to allow for hardware configuration changes on the system that hosts these forums as well as various updates to patch recently publicised CPU vulnerabilities. Apologies for the inconvenience that this will cause.  If you would like to keep up-to-date on the progress of the work, join our IRC channel (http://webchat.esper.net/?nick=&channels=oc) or our Discord ( https://discord.gg/0hVukoQ2KYifZFCA ).

Big Reactors Grid Control

Recommended Posts

@XyFreak Thanks for the response. It would be good if you can check if T3 screens are connected and if not, print out only small summary infos with the two button (charge, ON/OFF) because right now it's a bit messed and also there is no option to exit the program

Also, I wonder how the control stuff works. I expected it to detect if the cell / reactor internal power buffer is charging/decharging and turn on/off reactor automagically as it is needed (or control the production with control rods). However, after the reactor buffer totally charges (it does not handle TE cells correctly right now as they not seems handled in the Grid screeen), it tunes control rods up to 100% and stop taking care about the reactor even if all power is gone from the system.

If nothing any, please consider monitoring computer's own power supply and if it is going low, please enable reactor to produce some power at least for the computer. I know the main purpose of this software is manage a complex, reactor-turbine twisted setup, but this is the only software I found that has a nice display about the system and I'd like to use it to my simple small reactor with 5 rods.


EDIT I took a look into the code, and compatible energy storage components can be expanded with "energy_device" - this is how ThermalExpansion cells appear in component list.
