Specification

Adjustment Options

The floodgate has (3) adjustment options. Which adjustment option to use, at a given time, will depend upon various factors, none of which are under the control of the player. There is no single absolutely always correct answer. The option a player will choose to implement at any given time will depend purely upon the situation they find themselves in at that time.

Setting floodgate to (1.0) will adjust the height of the floodgate to (1) tile tall and will completely shut the floodgate. The floodgate will act as a levee in this state.

Partially Closed/Open

Setting the floodgate to (0.5) will adjust the height of the floodgate to (0.5) tiles tall. The floodgate will act as a dam in this state.

Completely Open

Setting the floodgate to (0.0) will adjust the height of the floodgate to (0.0) tiles tall. The flood gate will not influence water in this state.
