I don’t know if this has been posted about before, but checking through the bug reports I wasn’t able to find anything similar to this issue. I have had this issue for a while, but just now decided to post about it.
The actual compound density doesn’t always match up with the visual density of the cloud. I have provided some screenshots below. I don’t know if this is an intended feature or not, but if it is, would it not make more sense for denser cloud areas to look more dense?
Pastebin link to the launcher log (I just ran the game to get the screenshots, then closed it): https://pastebin.com/0upAA7n4
Also if this isn’t the proper log needed, please let me know. I grabbed this from the launcher.
Posted on Imgur cause I just made this account and I can’t post more than 1 photo in a single thread yet:
This screenshot shows how even in a sparse area of the compound cloud, the Ammonia concentration is still very high.
This is another example of a high concentration in a low visual density area.
This image shows what I would expect a high abundance area would look like. The cloud under the mouse is visually denser there.
This cloud looks just as dense as the previous one, yet the concentration is “a fair amount”. Although I can see it being slightly less than the previous one in terms of transparency, so I don’t know if this one is a bug or not.
I experienced this issue even before 0.5.6, back when it was just showed a long string of numbers instead of “a fair amount”. Does anyone else have this issue? I currently run Ubuntu 21.10, but I remember this same bug occurring on Fedora linux I believe.
