Expansion of steam pump?

hello, i notice that the dev are planning to add steam pump in the game. I would suggest that they have addition use in building and unlock new buildings.

You can build buildings that need a steam pump like a mill (milling stone). So to keep them running you need water from well or a lake and firewood. Also the water system himself need a pump or manuell filled to be running. The currently plan seem only be that this pump are for water distrubtion so i would recommand to add more to it. Because this system can be quiet addictive if you expand it. (like in Minecraft with redstone)

Another use could be:

  • Defensive Weapons to fight the bosses. (if the engine allow that im not sure about that)
  • Mines and so on
