Starbound How To Place Water
Liquid is gathered using the Matter Manipulator, which will stack units of liquid as items in players inventory. Before liquids can be gathered, the Matter Manipulator's Expansion Slot must be upgraded one level to allow for liquid collection. To place liquids, one needs to place background tiles in addition to foreground blocks, otherwise the liquid will flow "out" through the back and disappear.
Starbound How To Place Water
Water is a special, common block found everywhere except magma biomes. Fish may spawn in large enough bodies of water. Water may be picked up with a sufficiently upgraded Matter Manipulator ( with enough manipulator modules).
On planets with moderate climate you can create a pool when it rains with any space with a non-dirt backwall and a non-dirt floor ( dirt seems to absorb the water) and by covering the hole, you will be able to collect the water afterwards.
-- liquids can be cloned in a similar manner to Terraria by having water fall through gaps between blocks and splitting to either side of the block to fall again (this can be used to clone all other liquids such as Liquid Erchius Fuel )

A Water Purifier, as its name suggests, is a placeable device used to purify Water. To work, the water purifier needs an empty Propane Tank to be attached, wooden fuel added, and then lit with Matches, Lighter or Fire Drill. Withdrawing the fluid from the water purifier will yield clean water only. You are unable to withdraw the contaminated water.
The Water Purifier has the ability to hold 14 L of Dirty Water or Strange Water and 14 L of Clean Water which it had purified, however once the Clean Water capacity has been met, the Water Purifier will stop purifying water.

Make your pool at least 4 tiles deep. You will then be able to grow underwater crops successfully. The reason you can't plant isn't that there isn't enough water, it is the platform above it which prevents placing the seed. However, you still need more water or the seed will still pop out when growing too high. Here is a screenshot of a working setup:
There is a small pond in the center. Origami Cheep Cheeps will jump out of the water to attack you. Defeating all of them earns you a Mushroom item. After dealing with the Cheep Cheeps, hammer the damaged section of the wall at the back-right corner of the room. Before going through the hole, check your HP, heal if you need to, and check to see that the weapons and accessories you want are equipped.
I am experimenting with weather conditions in a game of mine, and I was impressed by the way Starbound handled the rain. Basically, when rain hits the ground, it's either dispersed horizontally (and absorbed by the ground), or it creates piles of water (when raindrops land inside a hole in the ground).
I know how to make rain fall and check where it hits the ground, but that's where I get stuck. My question is: how could this have been created? And how could one model the water flow so perfectly, without killing performance?
Starbound's water system is actually 2D tile based cellular automata. Each tile on the screen that does not contain a front tile layer, is capable of holding water. The amount of water is calculated via cellular automata.
As for the rain drops, those are particles. They serve mainly to fake that there is actually water falling from the sky. The water accumulates only because the game knows it is currently raining. The individual drops have nothing to do with the actual formation of the water pools.
The way they get it to accumulate, is by determining where there are holes in the top layer of the ground. If there is an area that can accumulate water, the cells in that area increment their water levels accordingly.
Starbound also deals with water pressure, and their rendering technique is pretty amazing. They have the best 2D implementation of water simulations physics using cellular automata that I have ever seen.
Here is a primitive view of a liquid physics engine, utilizing the above mentioned cellular automata technique. The rendering portion becomes a little more complex, as your water is represented by a numerical value.
In this example, a very simple improvement would be to hide water cells that have less than 1 full unit of water in it's tile if there is no solid tile below it. But then, you are hiding the water flow. Instead of hiding it, you would have to determine how the water is flowing, and then draw the appropriate water sprite in its place.
And so I guess one way would be this way..Given an arbitrary 'dip in the ground' Overlay a 'water box' that bounds it. The ground and waterbox are drawn in layers so that the ground is shown first, the waterbox after.
every time a water drop hits the dip in the ground add one to the waterbox. When the waterbox reaches a magic number, add a line of water. So say 10 drops land in the dip, this adds one line to the waterbox.
So say the waterbox is 32X32 pixels. Add one line of water colour from 0,31- 31,31. Another 10 drops, draw a line from 0,30 - 31,30. So as drops accumulate, you build up the waterbox from the bottom until its full.
A tribe can only collect water from a well, not directly from the rain. So a well must be built in meadow and filled by rain and then be transported. Water is used when growing plants. If a meadow runs out of water it turns grey and plants stop growing on it.
The Rhaiod Councillor, in addition to representing the interest of the Rhaiod, also provides lost and found services for important artifacts that a starfarer may have misplaced. If you have lost a precious item of paramount importance to your missions as a Watcher or as a member of the Protectorate, you never know: whether through Akkimari scavengers or the Nomada, it may have been collected, recovered, and held in trust for you, and will be released for but a nominal escrow and donation to the Rhaiod.
The processing facilities below the Hangar Deck handle the biological waste of the refugees aboard. Due to water restrictions, the system is presently operating at below peak efficiency: occasionally, items may fall into the waste reclamation system and wind up lodged in the evacuation chute.
Extensive mining and scavenging takes place in the Kadavan asteroid field. Starfarers with reliable personal vehicles or advanced techs may consider exploring the asteroid field outside the ship. However, the artificial gravity field extends well beyond the borders of the Refuge: starfarers are cautioned that they may wind up lost in the blackness, with their only recourse to beam back to their ship.
While a bit dangerous and tricky, it's absolutely possible to navigate this cave without using any light source at all. Just make sure to drain the water first so you won't drown, and pray you won't have any enemies wander in from the west to shoot you in the dark. Good ways of doing this include cutting a hole near the bottom towards an open cave, or bringing a Kiuaskivi and holding it.
The line marked on the hull of the vessel that separates the submerged section of the vessel from the section above the water level. The waterline must never be submerged. If it is submerged, the vessel has exceeded its maximum load capacity. Furthermore, if this line is lower on one side, it means that the load is unevenly distributed on each side of the vessel. These two situations represent a danger for the safety of the passengers as well as to the pleasure craft.
The depth of water, which a pleasure craft requires to float freely. It is, therefore, necessary to have deeper water than the draft of the pleasure craft, so that it may easily float, otherwise it may run aground.
The column of water around and behind a moving pleasure craft, which is set into motion by the pleasure craft advancing through the water. Smooth track left by the passage of a vessel.
Are approved for all vessels, except SOLAS vessels. They will turn you on your back to keep your face out of the water, even if you are unconscious. They are available in a keyhole model and come in two sizes: one for those weighing less than 40 kg (88 lbs), the other for those weighing more than 40 kg (88 lbs). The standard type lifejacket must be orange, yellow or red, a whistle must be attached to it and it must be of an approved-type. However, compared to PFDs, they are bulky and not as comfortable.
Small Vessel Lifejackets are approved for small vessels. They have less floating ability than the standard type lijejackets. They will turn you on your back to keep your face out of the water, even if you are unconscious, but may do so more slowly. They come in two models (keyhole and vest) and are available in three sizes, one for people over 41 kg (90 lbs), another for people between 18 kg (40 lbs) and 41 kg (90 lbs) and the third for people weighing less than 18 kg (40 lbs).
Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) lifejackets meet very high performance standards and are approved for all vessels. The SOLAS will turn you on your back in seconds to keep your face out of the water, even if you are unconscious. They come in two sizes, for those over 32 kg (70 lbs) and those less than 32 kg (70 lbs). They are available i
