I'm having some difficulty using automation. I put a pressure plate in front of (say) the grill, use wires from the plate to the grill and the power auto-shutoff, make sure that the pressure plate will turn on if 29kg+ (the Dupes weigh 30kg) get on the plate and they won't walk to the plate even when given the right job and high priority.

I did find the pressure plates useful to turn on/off the power by myself; You don't need a Dupe to change setting so you can put 1000kg as the quantity and change whether the trigger is being above or below 1000kg which turns off the machine at will. It's a cheap workaround to knowing how to use the mechanics properly, though.

Anything you stumbled upon that surprised you while playing?
