Deuterium Oxide Ratios

    I'm trying to make a reactor that generates it's own fuel and I would like to know the ratio of glow to water that leaves no glow or water remaining unless the consumption is random.

    Should just be 1:1. I tried with about 64 particles of each and ended up with nothing left over

    Strange as whenever I tried to mix a random amount 50 50 it usually had some left over... Maybe I can do a science experiment on it and do some form of spreadsheet system to compare ratios. (I'm using jacob1's mod and it previously had a glitch that made STOR steal particles)

    It is indeed 1:1. There's only a 1/400 chance for the reaction to take place, so it is slow, which may give the appearance not all the particles were turned.

    Ok I will run some experiments by adding 50 50 and mixing with gravity so it can't steal particles. it might be that I just miscounted and there was some glow blending in with the container

     

    it may sound like I think everything steals particles but what I really mean is that I am using something I think has the least chance of doing so

     

    Update: used 50% 50% ratio, got 4X the amount of water than glow I took a few images of the thing too so I can send them if you want them.

    Why don't you post the save you used to do it, or some screenshots? (The save would be better though).

    I tested it earlier with 15 and 15, and it came out even.

    Ok the save ID is 2478388, as you can see I mixed the particles with equal amount and then seperated them.

    I notice there's a lot of steam, did the water get too hot and evaporate? The reaction only happens with WATR+GLOW, not WTRV+GLOW.

    I deleted all the particles in your save, put in some new water and glow, and then mixed them with the PGRV tool. They were mixing exactly equal. I didn't mix them entirely but when I stopped there were 46 particles of each of the two left, and 232 DEUT created.

    I boiled off the water so I could paste it into the other box,  hmmmmmmmm as I can't get it quite right I'll just stick to some form of continuous flow with seperators at the end.

     

    Update: appears something was off because I tried again using that blender on the front page and got        50% : 50% working

    wait, 1/400??? that seems like an awful lot rarer than it is, then again its probably bc thats just for one particle, it'd be much more common when its happening hundreds of times with hundreds of particles. Also thought it needed like 1 part glow 3 parts water
