Portable Nuclear Reactor

This mod provides a portable nuclear reactor. It is an equipment which consumes nuclear fuel cell to provide power to equipment grid. This mod is intended to bridge the gap between solar panel and portable fusion reactor

The reactor size is 2x2, and provides 600kW of power

Notes:
- This is an RTG, which always maxes out power production regardless of the consumption. Use batteries to store the excess power
- The reactor is modeled after Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator, which has maximum efficiency of 50%

Currently supports Plutonium Energy by JohnTheCoolingFan, with more integration in the future

How to use:
1. Research and craft the reactor
2. Craft some nuclear fuel cell
3. Equip the reactor to your armor (or to your vehicle if you also use a vehicle grid mod), batteries, and any power consumer
4. Fuel the reactor. Open the equipment grid and right-click on the reactor to open the fuel window (this step also applies to any grid generator equipment that needs refueling)
5. It will now start burning the fuel cell. To collect the spent fuel cell, open the reactor fuel window again
