Habitat doors are on the wrong side

Mr. Fusion 3 years ago updated by Tyler Owen (Lead Developer) 3 years ago 1

From an engineering standpoint, the Hab doors are wrong. They seal against the door frame from the outside (moving outwards then sliding aside), which means that the higher internal pressure of the Hab would push them away from the door frame thus weakening the seal. They should seal from the inner side (moving inwards then sliding aside), so that the internal pressure would press them against the door frame, tightening the seal.

Good point. I believe I originally had it planned the way you described but I think it got mixed up in the communication with the artist. I'll try to fix this eventually, but it will be lower on the priority list. Thanks for pointing it out though.
