They're virtual fluids that fluid_lib can handle. Fluid transfer nodes will work with transferring them no problem. Just that they cannot be put in tanks or buckets.

Now the reactor can heat up coolant!

Next up, the hot coolant shall be ran into Heat Exchangers that turn Water into Steam using the Hot Coolant, which in turn will then be turned back into Cold Coolant. The steam must be ran into a Turbine Generator to get tons of power!

Really happy to see something like this being worked on!

Though I've been off the MT scene for a little while, I've been hoping a good base API for power/fluid handling would find its way in the community, this seems like a very good candidate.

I'll be playing with Elepower more in the near future and will definitely report anything I notice.

I will be improving the APIs in the future as well! Please note that some recipes are either missing or undocumented, so the best way to play around with this mod is in creative, or if you can read source code, you can find the alloy recipes and such too. But don't worry, this mod is still in development and documentation will be created!

So a continual cost for teleporters, nice! Are there already powered furnaces?
What is SCP-055?

Added a Matter Transmitter: It's basically a teleporter that you have to power and set a target Matter Receiver on.
Matter Transmitters and Receivers are per-player and currently cannot be shared.

This looks AWESOME. Once that version of minetest is stable, I'll be sure to try it out on my server.

I can see the mods supports pipeworks. Would you be interested in supporting joe7575's tubelib as an alternative item transfer system? I believe it's much more lightweight.

Turns out it was incredibly easy and I have done it. Now, elepower supports tubelib for item transfer. Will look into using it for fluids as well.
Pipeworks still is supported as well.

That’s great!
Regarding liquid, don’t you have your own pipes for that or am I mistaken? Regardless I’m trying to harmonize both systems into one coherent game so your tubelib support is one step closer to that end. :)

Yeah, for fluid transfer I do have my own piping system. It's not very needy in terms of processing power either.

Currently thinking about what else I need to do before making another release on the CDB. Might wait a little for the latest master commits to become used because of the tooltips.

That doesn't matter too much, as it'll still work just without the tooltips and with an error
