I'm not sure if it's clear enough. I'll explain it in detail soon.
Recently I'm doing some experiments on power stuff for the editting of Astroneer Wiki. While testing the allocaiton of current in directional cables, it was like:
Source Network: Shelter (+1.0A), Small Battery (+1.0A), Research Chamber#1 (-2.0A)
Object Network: Research Chamber#2 (-2.0A)
Research Chamber#1 was working at full speed, so theoratically Research Chamber#2 is not going to work at all but actually it did. The power gauges read around a half, and the splitter connecting the 2 networks also read 1.
