this mod is an update for version 0.17 of the game, original author: dyonisos
Adds 4 tiers of Beacons to the game.
The first tier can be researched right after module technology.
MK1: Only one module slot. 1x1 footprint, with a range of 1 (3x3 effect area) MK2: two module slots, 2x2 footprint with a range of 3 (8x8 effect area) MK3: three module slots, 3x3 large with a range of 5 (13x13 effect area) MK4: four module slots, 4x4 large with a range of 7 (18x18 effect area)
Does not replace basic beacons, but makes them require MK2-Beacons to research.
They are now crafted for free from MK2-Beacons.
When mined they yield MK2-Beacons.
