RT Power Switch

Adds a research that will upgrade power switches with power-reserving functionality.
Compatibility warning: compatible with Haplo's PowerSwitch[ludeon.com] only if RT Power Switch is loaded before Haplo's; even then, enabling features of both mods at the same switch will lead to weird behavior!

    "Emergency power" mode: when enabled, power switch will automatically turn on if an adjacent energy network is about to lose power, and turn off once the network's batteries are all fully charged.
Doesn't require starting a new colony.

I wish this mode is able to recogniaze multi-batteries-network (there is 3 battery group NO.1 is common use NO.2 is emergency group1 NO.3 is emergency group 2 ) but when NO.1 goes dead both of N0.2 and NO.3 are discharge (i wish NO.3 discharge only if NO.1 AND NO.2 both dead)

Updated to B18. Let me know if anything goes sideways, of course.

@™TheInnsanity™: Yes, @Hobi is correct, you need to complete the research first. Should be in the "RT Mods" tab that's common across my mods.

Did you researched the technology?

When the mod is turned on and loaded, it does not seem to give my power switches the "emergency power" option, loaded it up for a new game, so I know it isn't a problem with an existing save. Thanks for the reply :)

@™TheInnsanity™: What do you expect it to do and what happens instead?

Doesn't currently work, here's the mods I have, I don't see any reason they should prevent it from working.

I've started making use of Switches myself to keep things from going 'Zzt' and 'Kaboom', but it's frustrating to have to keep a constant eye to ensure that I don't accidentally cause the power to go out and lose all the perishables in my freezer room. This mod is EXACTLY what I was looking for in order to make it a bit easier on me. For that, I thank you, you wonderful person.
