Silverglazes Infinite Water Generator by Silveron

Important: If the movie appears blank or fails to play it is because it was recorded using a corrupt version of Dwarf Fortress. This is a known bug and is reported in the tracker, bug 2489. The DFMA administration is in the process of cleaning up these movies from the site; and hopes bay12games will fix the game functionality soon.

Infinite *water* generator? Explain!

Unless you meant infinite *power* generator.

No, he means infinite water generator. It generates water. The pump has a loop (to the south) from which it pumps to which leads to where it pumps from. This somehow generates more water than there was originally in the system. This generates an effectively unlimited amount of "copied" water.

Dwarf fortress has astounding physics!

Please post on the wiki (or link to) a step by step tutorial as to how this glorious machine was constructed.

Ah, mechanisms. Helping dwarves create permafloods since who knows when.

Wait, is that just a really bad aquifer powering it or do you mean something else?

nub, its a 'feature' of DF: Screw pumps generate more water then they take out, meaning, its possible to introduce -new water- into the system, creating an infinite supply of water. Water that reaches 1 unit will eventually dissipate, but water pumped out of a pool will generate more then was originally there. That's the theory, try and put it into practice.

The infinite water is not created by the screw pump. You can get the same effect with buckets.

VengefulDonut, not if you go wasting the water like I did... I emptied a murky pool into a water tower I'd built and all of the water dried up.


Do you only see a blank space instead of a play button?
