This mod adds a several early game nuclear technologies, buildings, and items.

There are now two earlier tiers of nuclear reactor, and a lower tier of heat pipe/heat exchanger that will work from the beginning of the game.

This is facilitated by a low tech centrifuge system and loose uranium ore that doesn't require acid to mine.

Also includes a nuclear power plant for powering armor equipment and a lower tier nuclear bomb.

Thanks to the following mods for inspiration:
cncs Sulfur Mod
Dp77s FactorioPlus Ores
Portable power

A special thanks to Gerkiz for helping me out with diagnosing problems with my ore generation.
Also, thanks to Sigma1 for the basis of the RTG graphics.
