    3. Not sure or it should be added onto, not completely overhauled.

      This is just a post I made to talk about the new overhaul system and see what people think about it, because personally, I am very excited for this update and the future of Starmade.
      I would like to say that the current proposed overhaul doesn't seem to me like it's going to work and I would like to hear from other people what they think.

      I would suggest a system similar to a mod for minecraft called "big reactors", in this mod you can make reactors that use a radioactive fuel to generate energy, and you can use different kinds of coolants etc, but you can use water as a coolant and then use the steam to power a turbine as well, which I find to be a very good idea. Maybe not the best idea to make it that complicated, but taking some inspiration from that would be cool in my opinion.

      So let me know what you think and why!

      I think we should wait for the power overhaul proposal 2 by teh shine team.

      Why did you not include a link to some pictures? The best I found are here: Big reactors are awesome
