Suggestion: Radbolt Conduits


Recommended Posts

I'm of the opinion that the research reactor is a bad source of radiation for radbolt generation.  The inability to pass radbolts through tiles means the reactor room needs to be open, but the enormous heat generated by the reactor means it needs to be enclosed.  There are workarounds, but a more intuitive way to transport radbolts would make the reactor a more appealing source of radbolts.

Thus I propose radbolt conduits.  These would function like gas and liquid pipes and be displayed on the radiation overlay.  The system would consist of the following components.

  • an intake fed by radbolt generators or reflectors
  • conduits for radbolts to travel through, with bolts losing 1 strength per tile traveled, as usual
  • bridges
  • a vent or exhaust through which radbolts exit the piping network

I think such a system would allow research reactors to shine as centerpieces of what's supposed to be a well-integrated radiation system.

I like this idea, though I think something like a heavy watt joint plate for radbolts would be better.

Given the temperatures involved with the research reactor, such tiles would need to be inherently insulated.
