Oni Experiment 52b is a plant-themed POI (point of interest). It can be found on the Marshy Asteroid in the game Oxygen Not Included: Spaced Out! It is a cybernetic tree that was created by Ishamoridin, one of the developers of the game.
In today’s article, we’ll explore all the possible Ws & Hs of the Oni Experiment 52B. Let’s have a read.
How Oni Experiment 52B Works
Experiment 52B is a plant-themed POI that can be found on the Marshy Asteroid. It eats the same food that duplicants eat, i.e., anything that has calorie ratings. The tree is hostile and will lash out at any nearby duplicant that comes near and inflicts damage. It does not attack critters.
Experiment 52B is immune to food poisoning. After the tree has consumed enough kcals of food, now it begins to spew a type of liquid resin onto the ground. It utilizes 50 grams/second of food (excluding resin venting) and generates 1 kg of liquid resin for every 200 kilocalories. It means food with higher calories/kg produces more resin.
Liquid resin must be heated above 125 °C to produce usable isoresin. This temperature is above Experiment 52B’s overheating temperature of 100 °C. Therefore, it must be moved to a different area before heating.
The heating resin will produce 25% mass as isoresin and the remainder as steam. Essentially producing 250 g of isoresin and 750 g of water per 200 kcal of food. To produce 100 kgs of insulation, 15 kgs of isoresin are needed, costing 12,000 kilocalories. In contrast, the production of 100 kgs of visco-gel needs 35 kgs of isoresin, with a corresponding cost of 28,000 kilocalories.
The tree’s mass intake per cycle is restricted, and it is the sole tree in existence. Hence, the only way to increase per cycle production is to feed it foods with higher calorie density. Feeding Oni Experiment 52B on meal lice (600 kcal/kg) will produce (excluding resin venting). On the other hand, feeding it surf’n’turf or frost burger (6000 kcal/kg) will instead produce 450 kg/cycle (including resin venting).
Liquid resin’s boiling point is exactly the minimum input temperature of a steam turbine, which simplifies all the heat managements very significantly.
How You Can Use Oni Experiment 52B for Self-Powered Build
One way you can use Oni Experiment 52B for the self-powered build is by creating an experiment: self-powered Experiment 52B tamer. This build takes food and transforms it into water and isoresin, while being entirely self-powered.
The main idea behind this build is pinning the tree close to 100°C, and superheating the resin to 200°C to create heat. First, the tree is pinned to around 97°C to 100°C, so that resin is created at that temperature and requires less heat to heat up. This is done with a heat bridge to take heat from the steam room. Then use the fact that the tile just below the middle of the tree exchanges heat with it to precisely control its temperature.
The heat exchanger employs standard tiles for a gradual heat introduction. The tree room is vacuumed using a pump for precise temperature control. This enhances manageability though not strictly necessary.
Then, to maximize the resin production, the tree is fed with high-calorie food, such as surf’n’turf or frost burger. This is done with a conveyor loader that drops the food onto the tree. The food is kept at around 100 °C to prevent spoilage. The food is also kept in a vacuum to prevent off-gassing.
The resin is then collected with a conveyor rail and sent to a steam room. There it is heated to 200 °C with a metal refinery. The metal refinery uses petroleum as coolant and produces steel.
The steel is then sent to a cooling room, where it is cooled down with a steam turbine and an aquatuner. The aquatuner uses super coolant as coolant, and produces liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen.
The steam room has a steam turbine that generates power from the heat of the resin and the metal refinery. The steam turbine also cools down the steam to water, which is then sent back to the metal refinery. The water is also used to feed a hydrogen generator and an electrolyzer, which produce more power and oxygen.
The isoresin and the water from the resin are collected with a liquid pump and sent to a storage room. The storage room has a liquid reservoir and a gas reservoir. These store the isoresin and the oxygen respectively. The storage room also has a gas pump. It sends the oxygen to the cooling room, where it is liquefied with the aquatuner.
The result is a self-powered build that transforms food into water and isoresin, while also producing steel, liquid oxygen, and liquid hydrogen. The build consumes 50 g/s of food and produces 10 g/s of isoresin, 30 g/s of water, 2 kg/cycle of steel, 0.5 kg/cycle of liquid oxygen, and 0.5 kg/cycle of liquid hydrogen.
Oni Experiment 52b is one of the most interesting POIs in Oxygen Not Included: Spaced Out! It combines plant growth with cybernetic technology. It creates a unique experience for players who want to explore new possibilities in their game world.
