How do you set off a nuke?

  • Yea i know im a noob in IC2 and i dont know how to set it off in the 1.6.4 Experimental version. When i click on it, it opens a menu with a kind of explosion interface. Ive tried using Levers,Redstone Torches and flint but they wont go off. Please dont flame if i put this in the wrong section i just signed up to post this.

  • The interface has slots that must be filled.


    The center slot takes nuclear material. Pretty much any kind will work, except for crafted reactor fuel; explosion power is different for different materials, though (plutonum makes the biggest boom IIRC). You can also put more than one item in, up to an entire stack, to increase explosion power.


    The outer slots take industrial TNT. One piece will fill all outer slots with one each, and again, you can insert up to a stack to improve explosion power.


    After you have both the compression TNT and the nuclear material inserted, you have a fully functional nuclear warhead that can be set off by a redstone signal, like normal TNT. It's advised that you run ;)

  • Here's what you get if you put 64 plutonium and 64 Industrial TNT into a nuke:

    145 Mods isn't too many. 9 types of copper and 8 types of tin aren't too many. 3 types of coffee though?

    I see this too much.

  • if it weren't capped at 200, what value would the explosion power reach?


    Maybe add an addendum that makes the nuke vanish undestroyable blocks aswell if the explosion power is too high? everything, including the drops.

  • if it weren't capped at 200, what value would the explosion power reach?

    As high as the RAM you've got allows, the usage goes crazy high quite quickly though.

  • no chunk deleting, 1. that would remove bedrock, 2. people with Force Fields or warded stuff will be pissed.

    I don't say, your "insert whatever" is bad. I'm only showing ways for making it better.

    Buuut that would be the intention of having a so powerful nuke. Destroy your world. Entirely.
    At least remove everything but bedrock.


    Of course such ability to destroy "undestroyable" blocks would only be achieved with explosion power > 500 or some other high number.
    Configurable (set to values higher than 1000 to disable that, for example)

  • I went and experimented if warded stuff got blown up, and it turns out in a dirt sphere, the ground to the sides get blown out in a weird shape,
