watercollection system im rust is such a crap...
If you fill a bucket 2litres (2000ml) ok...
then you cant change to another fucking bucket, if you do, its wasted on the ground.

Yes, the counters were unneeded and we are going to make a better video explaining where everything goes.

Went through and messed with things a bit, took a while to figure out the wiring, but I got it to work. Also took out the counters. First time I tried to do it, I did it with the counters and it would turn on automatically when switch was flipped, but would not turn off automatically, nor would it turn back on.

We're currently working on a v2 guide where we go into more detail of where each cable goes and how to set it up.

For anyone that uses this on a small scale operation: I have 3 small water catchers, I used a couple jugs to fill the last catcher up to around 3k water. I am only running one sprinkler over two small planters currently. After the intitial saturation process I only let this run for a couple cycles every other game day or so and the system maintains water levels and runs just as demonstrated in the video.

Finished it up few hours ago, works great. Thanks again for publishing this!

We are publishing a version 2 today with a video.

Currently wiring it up, it is difficult to follow the line pathing in and around the counters.
