NSC Advanced Reactors

NSC Advanced Reactors

These NSC advanced reactors are levels 6-10 of the standard vanilla reactor set plus a unique level 11 reactor, along with tweaks to certain vanilla reactor’s names/descriptions and an icon overhaul to make the entire set feel natural and more in-line with a natural reactor progression.

These reactors are part of the NSC Component Feature, which is mainly intended for NSC players who do not use NHunter’s Extra Ship Components, TFW’s Bunch of Ship Parts, or Guilliman’s Crystallis. A pop-up message at game start will inform you if you have any of these mods active in your game, and depending on their presence, will give a recommendation, but the choice of whether you want the NSC Components is yours. If you decide to accept the NSC Components, this decision is permanent, however, if you decline, you can always active them later by selecting the appropriate option from the NSC Features Menu. However, whether you accept or decline, the level 6 & 7 NSC Reactors will automatically be available due to the power demands of NSC Ship Classes.

For those of you who do not like the icon changes because you don’t use the NSC Component Feature due to another component mod or just personal taste, a new addon will be made available to restore the original vanilla icons for those who want those instead.

In addition to adding 5 new “regular” reactor tiers, NSC also adapted the names of certain vanilla reactors to help make the progression from levels 1-10 feel natural. With this in mind, the following vanilla reactors had their names and descriptions changed/switched:

Antimatter Reactor (Level 4) –> Advanced Nuclear Reactor
Zero Point Reactor (Level 5) –> Antimatter Reactor

 

Graviton Reactor (Level 6):

“Adding gravitational and graviton based based particles to reinforce an antimatter reaction greatly increases the energy production of our reactors.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 35 Power, costs 11.7 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 70 Power, costs 21.9 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 140 Power, costs 41.2 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power
  • Graviton Reactor

 

Dark Matter Reactor (Level 7):

“Manipulating and harnessing elemental Dark Matter has allowed us to take antimatter and graviton reactions to a new level, producing even more power for our reactors, however, lack of complete understanding of dark matter limits the amount we can draw.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 40 Power, costs 12.5 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 80 Power, costs 23.5 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 160 Power, costs 44.4 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power (Vanilla Level 5, now Antimatter Reactor)
  • Graviton Reactor
  • Dark Matter Reactor

 

Singularity Reactor (Level 8):

“Taking micro-singularities and harnessing their power has granted us the power of stars, however, due to the need to micro-size the singularity for safety and convenience limits the available power draw.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 45 Power, costs 13.2 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 90 Power, costs 25 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 180 Power, costs 47.4 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power (Vanilla Level 5, now Antimatter Reactor)
  • Graviton Reactor
  • Dark Matter Reactor
  • Singularity Reactor

 

Multidimensional Reactor (Level 9):

“Creating a matter bridge between different dimensions and alternative realities allows for a steady, if somewhat limited, stream of vacuum energy to power our next generation of reactors.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 50 Power, costs 13.9 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 100 Power, costs 26.3 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 200 Power, costs 50 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power (Vanilla Level 5, now Antimatter Reactor)
  • Graviton Reactor
  • Dark Matter Reactor
  • Singularity Reactor
  • Multidimensional Reactor

 

Zero Point Reactor (Level 10):

“Zero Point Modules collect vacuum energy from artificial pockets of subspace time, allowing for a continuous and almost endless supply of energy on a massive scale. Energy doesn’t get much more efficient than this.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 55 Power, costs 14.5 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 110 Power, costs 27.5 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 220 Power, costs 52.4 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power (Vanilla Level 5, now Antimatter Reactor)
  • Graviton Reactor
  • Dark Matter Reactor
  • Singularity Reactor
  • Multidimensional Reactor
  • Zero Point Reactor

 

Optimized Enigmatic Power Core (Unique):

“Taking advantage of the knowledge discovered from the Enigmatic Fortress along with our own discoveries, we can now take zero point energy directly from the subspace of our own universe without the risk of creating unstable exotic particles, allowing continuous energy limited only by our ability to control the flow of energy.”

Component Stats:

  • Small Reactor: Provides 60 Power, costs 15 Minerals
  • Medium Reactor: Provides 120 Power, costs 28.6 Minerals
  • Large Reactor: Provides 240 Power, costs 54.5 Minerals

Research Requirements:

  • Zero Point Power (Vanilla Level 5, now Antimatter Reactor)
  • Graviton Reactor
  • Dark Matter Reactor
  • Singularity Reactor
  • Multidimensional Reactor
  • Zero Point Reactor
  • Enigmatic Power Core
  • Optimized Enigmatic Power Core

NOTICE: This Reactor requires both the Zero Point Reactor (Level 10) and the Enigmatic Power Core tech only available through the Enigmatic Fortress, thus this component requires the Leviathans DLC to be discovered and function.
