How not to delam the SM and dont look stupid

So a suprising ammounts of engineers doesnt know how to set up the SM, and what to do when it goes nuclear. I will try my best and explain the very basic set up so you wont make it go boom the next time you play engineer!
For starters you will need these items: Wrench, Meason goggles or the scanner goggles set to the meason mode and RPD( rapid pipe dispenser). Now first thing you wanna do is go around the SM and unwrenc all the gas pumps that are around the cooling loop like here:

and it should look like this:

the middle one is bypass and we dont want the gas to go past the radiators. and do it for these pumpts too:

and it should looke like this:

dont forget this:

and lastly:

Okay! Now we can move on to the gas filters under the SM, basically everything will be default so you just have to turn them on and it will be: nothing, nothing, nothing and n2.
Now you wanna grab 6 plasma canisters that are in the racks:

and put them in to radiation collectors and click on them to turn on:

Now you come to the red tanks which are N2, thats the cooling gas and wrench them down and turn the pumps to max and turn them on. Last thing is go to the AIR alarm and set it as follows:

Bam you done! Last thing is to turn on the emitters and you are golden!
Now for troubleshooting, you start with a tablet, in the tablet there is software download tool, you want to download app called: supper matter monitoring, so you can check on the SM on the go! There is lots of cool info and you can find out why the SM is delamming. For example, if the gases show there is O2, the cooling loop is damaged or the filters are set up badly, if plasma and other gases are in, check the air alarm if your vents and scrubbers are set up. those are the most common malfunctions you will face. Remember, take a shower after leaving the SM so you are not a walking chernobyl, wear your measons so you dont trip balls and always ask your fellow engineers if something isnt clear. Dont blow us up!

Remember kids, NEVER TURN ON THE FREEZEERS UNTIL YOU UPGRADE THEM.

Im sorry buddy but there is no such thing as going past the radiators. Every pipe ‘network’ is simply a container that has a volume based on the sum of its parts. pumps filters and similar devices separate the networks.

If you were to remove that bypass filter… nothing would happen and the loop would behave EXACTLY the same. It would have an X number of pipes and X amount of heat radiators. On every atmos tick the gas would be moved in and moved out based on other devices, and temperature modified based on the amount of those heat radiators in space.

Furthermore removing that pump defeats sabotage done in the space cooling loop, if one middle part is snipped, it will still be a single network if you remove the bypass pump.

Otherwise everything else is spot on when it comes to basic setup.
