Subsurface Conduit

Power conduits that go under the surface. They are immune to damage and fire and are invisible, so they do not decrease the beauty of the area they are placed in. Compared to the vanilla Power Conduit, they require a bit more steel (3 vs 1) and a lot more work (50 vs 1) to build, but it's fully configurable in the mod settings menu.

Extra Features
  • Configurable steel cost and work amount.
  • Option for under wall placement.

  • Should be compatible with most modded floors/terrains. Let me know if something isn't working.

  • Traditional Chinese - SY1102

Other Versions

Feeling generous?

Not sure what is going on, it works for me. Maybe it's the overlapping grid glitch? Make sure there isn't a subsurface conduit underneath a battery or generator? That's the only thing I can think of.

For some reason with the geothermal power, even though the source is connected to batteries with your mod, it still says power source not connected.

They do and that was pretty much the primary purpose of me creating this mod, so I didn't have visible power cables running all over the map.

Do subsurface conduits not work with geothermal power?

I think it will do that with any building that has it's own power grid like the geothermals and the regular generators. It can be safely ignored,

Error message in log
I see a number of errors in the log file (but expect these are warnings rather than errors):
"Multiple nets on the same cell (213, 0, 139). This is probably a result of an earlier error.
(Filename: C:\buildslave\unity\build\Runtime/Export/Debug/Debug.bindings.h Line: 35)"

It doesn't appear to affect my overall power to my base.

Build a subsurface conduit near a steam geyser within a generator building foot-print. Build an advanced geothermal generator over the top of it (this is late in the game when I noticed it, so assume it applies to all geothermal generators).

Either 1) The pawns will deconstruct the subsurface conduit before building the generator,
Or 2) the subsurface net is ignored if there is a generator above it, and there is no error message but a warning message.

glad to hear it

@murmur, thanks for the response, your suggestion worked, my bench is now powered

sounds like something isn't working right, these ones should work the same as the regular ones. Try unsubscribing and resubscribing? Not sure what the issue could be. Sometimes that fixes things.

I'm new to rimworld so sorry it this is a stupid question. I'm trying to hook up an electric stone cutting bench. It won't hook up to the subsurface power lines, but when I experimented with hooking up a bench to regular power lines there was no issue. Am I missing something?
