RT Solar Flare Shield

Adds a magnetic shield to prevent solar flares from affecting colony electronics.
Warning: potentially incompatible with mods affecting how solar flare incident works, not including mods simply adjusting it's frequency via the defs.

    Magnetic shield: an expensive device, draws little power when idle and spikes to whooping 25kW during flares; shields the entire colony, and heats up considerably in when in operation.

@Incursore, you can't fight the sudden rise in temperature (as of this version) it will escalate and eventually blow so... yep, built it outside with a roof.

Great mod, useful but not OP, thanks.

To the people that use this mod, do you use vents or coolers to fight the overtemperature of the Solar Flare Shield room? Or maybe do you simply build it outside of any room?

@Thundercraft: no, it will only protect the colony it's built at.

Since A16 now allows players to have more than one colony:

Q: Will a single Solar Flare Shield protect multiple colonies (assuming we turn that feature on in options)?

Thanks the quick reply.Too bad for me... :)

@Lord-Fridge: Can't be done as elegantly, due to how solar flares and power networks are implemented in core game. It is possible, but would require either stupidly inefficient code, or stupidly invasive code, neither of which I'm willing to create.

Hi great mod, thank you for that. would it be possible to add asmaller version to protect only a part of your base/a specific power grid. I'm thinking bse defenses or thet cooling system.Maybe with a smaller power draw? Thanks again.

LMAO, this thing killed my entire colony.
I just laughed and watched.
Forgot about the heat warning and my colony was in a mountain.

I been getting a constant "Construction failed" when I try to build the magnetic shield. Do you have any ideas as to why this may be happening?

If it zzzzts order a roof above it and 4 pillars to hold it. Also in case the cable that feeds it power zzzts as well in the future via random even just don't drag the whole cable to it... leave like 4 to 5 squares of distance.
