Updated Compact Batteries

Update: New Icons

Finally, RB compact batteries with new models.

My first efforts with Blender3D, I Resized the small grid vanilla battery to make these, using RavenBolt's construction models with his permission, thank you :)

Version that gives powercells back instead of scrap metal

Small Grid only

Copied from the original mod
A more compact battery, well three more compact batteries. I redid the balance to match the vanilla battery. Power and material cost are in ratio to size. They start charged with 30% and will now produce scrap when grinded down.

For the battery stats see the original mod here :)
The original mod has been updated with better models than the resized vanilla ones i did, i may eventually alter this battery mod so it is different to RavenBolt's mod in some way, with different subtype ID's :)

More thanx go to Shaostoul for some SE moddeling education :)

These also use RavenBolt's Compact battery's original 'subtypeID' so these will directly replace his batteries for players currently using his mod, i will eventually create a version with unique subtype ID's, which will probably be after i create the icons and look into resizing KEEN's small grid battery construction stages if they are lower poly count.

To do:
New icons. Done.
Possible lower poly construction stage models.
Separate version with different subtype IDs so you can have both this and the original mod in a game.
Separate version that has almost no power to start with but gives you back all the powercells when dismantled with a grinder.
Improve models when my 3D modelling skills improve.

Any chance on getting that no scrap version? I love the models on this one but I'm reluctant to use it because I hate being wasteful and it kills me to grind down batteries and not get the cells back.

Possiblly something in the game engine then. Not sure how the game treats cockpit-less ships (remote control) in terms of power distribution but one of my mining ships is having the problem. My welders will a cockpit seem to be fine, just checked them.
