Nuclear Robots

This is a forked version of the Fusion Robots Mod by MindMix. Special thanks for letting me use his code.

Description: With a modified Radioisotope thermoelectric generator (RTG) and special superconductors, these flying reactors with robot arms perform the same tasks as conventional robots but without needing to recharge. The risks with the RTG always near critical mass to produce the maximum heat levels is should the framing/shielding be damaged, the plutonium core will have the result of a fizzle explosion. The resulting explosion will damage, if not likely destroy, any nearby objects. Please consult the Safety Guidelines in your User Manual for safety tips before use. Take special considerations when deploying robots near your defensive perimeter.

Note: Manufacturer is not responsible for incinerations, decapitations, amputations nor irradiations due to improper or proper use of device. By reading this statement you agree to the terms of service.
