0006437: Still magma doesn't keep ice thawed
Flowing magma will keep water from freezing on the level above, but if it stops flowing the water above eventually freezes.
I have a save file set up to demonstrate this. It uses magma to heat a chamber full of water. There is a room with a row of levers to control everything. The numbers in the instructions bellow refer to them from left to right. Hit F2 to bring you back to the levers.

* Download this save and start it up:

* Pull the 2nd and 3rd levers

* Pull the 4th lever and once the room is full of water pull it again

* Pull the 2nd and 3rd levers

* Once the ice has set pull the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd levers

* The ice will all melt, but if you wait a while it freezes again despite the magma
No tags attached.
