Awh, now i want iridium reflectors even more they at least scale with with what you put them next to. Would it be viable in gregtech? since then you would get away with making 2 iridium reflectors instead of 4 for the same production
I recently started looking into nuclear and since i happen to be a bit of a efficiancy freak ive been mostly looking into the most efficient reactors. I am by all means a rookie when it comes to reactor design however when i looked into the 4 chamber design made by SpwnX i really wanted the efficiency however i wasn't that keen on the running cost.
The design i came upp with is entirely based on SpwnX design however i changed it in a few parts to decrease the running cost while maintaining the 500 eu/tick, 25 efficiency. Material cost is probably slighly more expensive (haven't actully checked), however i think needing only 2 reflectors instead of 4 more than makes up for that.
Mark 1 EA+
Building cost: Should be similar to SpwnX build
Running cost: 24 uu 238, 9 copper, 16 tin, 16 coal per cycle
Since im very new to this it is entirely possible that you could probably improve on this design quite a bit however i do think this setup has great potential. There is currently one unused slot in the reactor which i dont know what to do with however im unsure if it matters. if not, feel free to point out why.
