Doors leeching electricity
« on: August 15, 2019, 01:50:27 pm »
For some reason, all wooden doors seem to have a consumption of 1 EU which is odd since they work even when you don't have any electricity

Hello!

There was a bug which resulted in the incorrect calculation of the consumers such as floor lights (the same objects were added several times in the power consumers list). It caused excessive power consumption.
The issue was fixed with this patch http://forums.atomictorch.com/index.php?topic=1393.msg7820#new

Doors actually are not consuming any electricity.

Regards!

I'm playing on a private server so something may have not updated right? since this happened after the patch

Are you certain the version of the server is v0.23.6.4? Please check the latest server log file, the version is written at the beginning of the file.

I think there is still a problem with leeching energy.
When I build a lamp it consumes 1EE/s.
But after one day it suddenly consumes 20 EE / s.

I'm already at 0.23.6.4.
Did anyone recognize that or is it just me?

The hotfix (v0.23.6.4) contained a fix specifically for this issue.
There were no other reports regarding it.

Could you provide more details, please?
1. Is 20 EE/s consumption displayed in the lamp or it's visible only in the power grid stats?
2. Does toggle of the lamp power mode resolve the issue?
3. In the power grid stats, do you notice only excessive power consumption or there is an excessive number of power consumers as well?

Thanks for reporting.

Regards!
