Though that is a good idea, what purpose would it serve?

Maybe a steam gen as I saw in a different post.

would be fun to play with for sure. i'd build a dam 😃

Other than that, it could find a place in crafting. Gather some into a canister using the terrain tool. Dont know exactly what it would produce though. Maybe clay. Or electrolysis for hydrogen and oxygen for a future more advanced oxygen system. Or oxygen could be part of our rocket fuel. Or water could be used for plants in a greenhouse. (greenhouse idea from another user whose name i cant remember. Greenhouse: add power(light) or sunlight and organics. Outputs oxygen and excess organic. Maybe it could also require water)

Maybe you could water planted seed for faster growth and/or greater harvest.

Oh and gotta add.. once there is a dam, power production seems like the next logical step 😃

They removed adding liquids from their Trello development page as a potential future update 😔

I agree that there should definitely be some liquids on some planets.

Liquids are a pain in the a. to implement in such a highly flexible terrain, lot of physics involved to deal with. Water leaking through holes, etc. Imagine all the water gathering into the core after some unfortunate drill?

Hmm, How about waterproof drill(or Waterproof Module for Drills)? Or just using Terrain Tool to block water current.

yes, with the drilling mechanics as is, flowing water would be... difficult. I would pin the time to develop at much longer than is practical to do. The system requirements would jump to the moon and multiplayer servers could be largely compromised. On the plus side, other implementations may be possible. Take a look at this (ancient) thread for some prompts about drilling if you are interested.

Since this solar system was made by aliens (the core is gone and replaced by artificial gravity field), there could be one of 3 system to govern it, like diference in temerature between underground layers, so water would freez on some layers (You get Ice) or boil of to atmosphere to make rain (making this system You can get rid of sprinklers and irrigation canals to have steady water circulation), or gather the water from atmosphere as a rain or with Atmospheric Condenser:. The third option is that water hiting core border would be teleported to the surface, instead of boiling, and raining. At least astronaut woud not drown, he have his space suit.
