Mushroom Cloud


Nukes are fun. Lets make them more fun.


This mod has three key features:

  • Every detonation of a nuclear weapon will immediately unleash a powerful nuclear flash, bright enough to light up your whole screen. Enough nukes provided, you're able to turn night into day - cooperative biter hunting has never felt more apocalyptic. (This feature can be disabled in mod settings tab if bright, flashing lights make you feel uncomfortable)
  • Each nuclear detonation is accompanied by a nice mushroom cloud explosion animation, which was originally created for the now abandoned Uranium Power mod. The explosion ground emanates a reddish nuclear glow that will let you feel the burning heat, even if you are spectating from save distance.
  • Experience different explosion sounds, depending on the distance between you and the place where the nuke set off. If you are far away from the explosion (imagine targeting a biter nest with a M.I.R.V), you'll just hear some echoes. If a nuclear explosion happens within a kilometer or less, the sound will be much more intense. And firing a nuke next to you will result in an earsplitting, awe-inspiring detonation sound.

Now, just grab some nukes and turn up your speakers - and have fun!
