How do you efficiently use Radbolts? They can't traverse walls, there's no way of detecting them, and if you need to load a Radbolt Engine or an Interplanetary loader, they'd have to be exposed to space (your radbolt producion facilities would have to have a hole on them). I suggest using something similar to Transit Tube Crossings or Heavi-Watt Joint Plates and create some sort of Radbolt crossing plate, which would allow for more efficient space usage of them and make them less dangerous (you wouldn't have to make your radiation facility with a hole on it)
Imagine build where radbolt collisions are at the center of the energy making or Void making (energy deleting) While we could produce heat trough radbolt collisions we could also produce Void. At the moment we have a little of a bottleneck with the radiation being able to produce radbolt collisions steady could be a very nice way of pushing player's to dangerous and expensive machines builds void would make the temperatures go low and would destroy the gases .The use of radiation to cool base is pretty nice imo. or producing heat that we could harvest with the steam generator but i think we have enough heat sources vs cold sources that are a bit less easy to get to.
I am not sure if it is intended behavior as it seems that radbolts have a decay rate in storage, but I experienced a total lack of atomic research for something like 100 cycles because the power circuit that my radbolt generator and atomic collider were setup on would lose power intermittently. Based on the decay rate of the radbolts stored in the radbolt generator, I do not think this lack of atomic research was due to delays between the radbolts being transmitted to the atomic collider and a researcher operating the atomic collider while the circuit is powered. It seems like radbolts stored or in transmission are subject to erasure in some power loss conditions? If this is intended behavior then it perhaps should be more explicitly stated in tool tips or at least in the radiation entries for the codex. My whole base is powered on a single automated coal generator with a consistent supply of coal in supply container directly adjacent to the coal generator. The radbolt generator and atomic collider are on the same circuit as each other, and they are isolated from the general grid by an alternating pair of power shutoffs with a battery in between them; the battery charges up when empty by opening the radbolt circuit and closing the power generator circuit; when the battery is full, it closes the radbolt circuit and opens the power generator circuit. The coal generator is behind a smart battery and the smart battery goes straight into a power transformer; the power transformer moves the energy from the smart battery to batteries downstream of the generator circuit when those batteries are connected to the generation circuit. This means the radbolt Generator drains the smart battery in about 41 seconds; the generator charges the radbolt circuit in no less than 20 seconds. If the atomic collider is operated during that maximum of 41 seconds that the radbolt circuit is powered then the circuit drains in about 33 seconds. I would expect that over a long enough span the dupes would have opportunity to operate the atomic collider while the collider has 10 or more radbolts and the collider is powered; no research was conducted over that time and often when I checked the atomic collider the radbolt count would be 0 or close to zero; I did observe that the radbolt generator did in fact fire and Radbolts did in fact make their way into the atomic collider, but I did not observe precisely when the atomic collider radbolts would drain; I just observed that radbolts disappeared from the system without any atomic research being done. I also think that there might be some kind of bug in switching between different research while a technology using atomic research is already underway though it might just be the apparent radbolt bug prevented research to be conducted. The problem is not apparent if the circuit is consistently charged.
