MA Plasma Reactor

Description
Give your ship a proper engineering deck with this expandable plasma power system.

WIP: Plasma thrusters are coming!

This contains a reactor which converts plasma fuel to energized gas, and generators which run directly off this.

This is preliminary release, there will probably be a lot of balancing tweaks as I try to iron things out. The purpose of this is to supplement our power options, the normal reactors will still have their place when it comes to high power density.

Do NOT run this with oxygen disabled in world settings!
This is a keen crash, it has been reported and until they fix this, not much I can do about it. Simple fix is make sure "Enable Oxygen" is checked in the advanced world settings. It is on by default. If you get crash when trying to place reactor then check this setting.

ALSO: There is existing Keen bug that exists with hydrogen tanks, throwing my mod in the mix just makes it happen more reliably. If it seems like conveyor isn't working right then try restructuring it so that the tank is not load bearing part of the conveyor network.

Interesting. Well these are set to use a mod gas called plasma. Other than that I don't have any scripting controlling the gens.. just changed the fuel and output numbers. Hopefully the author of the other mod can figure out the incompatibility.

Yes, everything is connected. After a little testing, I've figured out it is an incompatibility between this and Viable Hydrogen. I would guess there's not much you can really do, so I'll ask that mod author instead.

are they connected with the conduit pipes as shown in the images?

I'm having trouble setting up a functional network. My reactor is producing gas fine, and tanks are filling up, but my plasma generators don't start working. All are showing a yellow indicator light and Buildinfo is showing they have a 0L capacity, so they seem to not be consuming any gas, and so generate no power. Is this a bug? Presumably they should have some capacity for gas storage that they could then use, so is it buildinfo bugging, or this mod?

Actually I am actively avoiding that, I don't want the conveyors to be mixed.

Any plans on making special connectors for the plasma gas that would make it possible to transfer between grids? Or a block/set of blocks that allow for both regular conveyor and plasma gas conveyor interaction?

Setting is called "post processing effects"

@VOD you might have bloom effects turned off, check your graphics settings and turn the pretty things on.

for some reason the plasma in the pipes is blue for me

Great system. Love it! Thanks for all the effort!!!
