Basics

Visual representation of base_area, base_level and height. When all the fluidboxes are connected, the water leaves fluidbox A and flows into the other 3 boxes through fluidbox B until the water level is equal in all boxes. For more info about fluids, see Fluid system#See also.

Used to set the fluid amount an entity can hold, as well as the connection points for pipes leading into and out of the entity.
