The Water Reservoir is a standing storage device for containing water. It will act as a temporary water source in case the irrigation network's normal water source is compromised in some way.
The reservoir can hold up to 200 water. It can't be filled up by connecting it to irrigation pipes, but it automatically fills up during rain or snowfall. Because of this, it is extremely useful when making new extremely inland bases, or bases up on mountainsides, as long as it is not undercover from the rain.
While you can fill the Water Reservoir using a Waterskin, Water Jar or Canteen, you cannot directly refill a waterskin, water jar or canteen from the reservoir. Connect a tap to a pipe that the water tank is connected to. The water will flow out of the tap to drink from or to fill waterskins or jars.
They can be filled up by condensed water without the use of rain or snow. Making it, in huge numbers, useful placement for Aberration (and scorched earth(needs to be confirmed) ) , seeing there is no rain on these maps, making it a water creating system without connected water.
- The Reservoir was previously named Water Tank. Looking at the placed Water Reservoir you can still see its old name Water Tank.
- As the reservoir is placed on top of pipes, keep in mind that destruction of the pipe to which the tank is attached will also lead to destruction of the reservoir.
- The reservoir can not be placed on platform saddles or rafts, as it requires connection to water pipes.
