Non-electrical components throw sparks when replaced

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

When replacing non-electrical components like filters or storage tanks while the hab system is powered up, they throw sparks like electrical components would, but they don't actually break (as they shouldn't).

Since the sparks were added as an indicator that you shouldn't replace electrical components while the power is on, for the sake of clear feedback and consistency, it should happen only for those components, not for all of them.

(I know there was a thread about all this somewhere, system repairs and feedback on powered state, but I couldn't find it by any relevant search term I could think of.)


Good catch. And yes, this is currently only a visual bug. Non-electrical components will not break if being replaced with the power still on. Fix will be in next update.
