About This File

Harness the powers of science and 100 million volts of electricity into ordinary logs and give them a life of their own!

So... What exactly does it do?

It gives the good ol' Lightning Rod a useful function! Simply construct an ordinary Lightning Rod and place some logs near it on the ground. Later when the lightning rod gets hit by a bolt of lightning the logs will be transformed into Living Logs.

Sound a little too OP? You can tweak it to your liking from the mods menu!

- Change the range of the Lightning Rod's effect

- Make each strike animate all logs in range, or only one log

- Decide how likely each lightning strike is to bring a log to life

This is a pretty old mod of mine, and I recently started playing this game again and decided to remake it. If you've used my older versions, thanks! And sorry for the delay on updates.

Feel free to leave any feedback or suggestions, I'll try my best to read them this time. If you have any compatibility issues or crashes, PLEASE let me know so I can fix them up!
