Multiplies power produced by nuclear setups. Specifically, consumption of fuel cells and efficiency of turbines is multiplied so you get more power from the same setup without getting more power per fuel cell. Cost of reactors is increased accordingly as well, so nuclear is not cheaper, only more dense. Vanilla designs still work too. Default multiplier is 4 and can be changed in the ingame mod options.

Mod compatibility:
- NOT compatible with any mod making use of steam turbines without nuclear reactors (mods that add nuclear reactors should be fine). Power output will be multiplied so it will be extremely OP if you get high temperature steam without nuclear reactors, like with Geothermal
- specifically compatible with: Geothermal

If you come across any mods that use steam turbines / produce high temperature steam to be used with steam turbines WITHOUT THE USE OF NUCLEAR REACTORS, let me know.

Known issue:
- Using steam turbines instead of steam engines is OP / cheaty. Don't do it. Use steam engines for boilers, steam turbines for nuclear / heat exchanges as usual.
