It works, and it drains... plenty. In my games it switches between "not operating" and operating properly right after it sucks a lot of water. The problem is it sucks up so much water, there will be (sometimes long) times when there is no longer water underneath it. When this happens, it'll say it's not operating because it needs to be in water to function. If it is at least slightly submerged, it always works. It just works a bit "too well" sometimes, making it appear broken.

Like I said in my last comment, this is a cheat building that has insanely-high values. And therefore you can't expect it to behave in predictable ways -- in fact, it's pretty unstable. But its still extremely effective for flooding problems nonetheless, once you have it placed properly.

Ok. But it never drains anything.

@DRen72 that is because it sucks up so much water so fast that it takes time for the water to go back to where it was in range of the ocean drainer.

Doesnt seem to work.
Always says "Not Operating"

Ooooooooookay.... so I went to find out the stats for myself.

Stats are identical to the vanilla water pumping station, except for just a few things. Noise pollution is at 250, and pumping capacity is indeed off the chart, at a massive *negative* number.

But after trying it, while it sucks up plenty of water (and is basically a cheat mod), I can confirm it doesn't break the game either. I built 3 of these on my main river, and it still hasn't drained it completely dry, but it's indeed not far from it. So in other words, this is extremely useful if you're willing to resort to more desperate methods in order to fix your flooding problems.

I maxed out the Data Value for the amout of water it sucks up. so it sucks up lot of water.

Sounds useful, but how much it absorb exactly? Any other stats like cost would be helpful as well.
