It's the portable fusion reactor icon that has existed in the game for a loooong time.

Something I noticed in the V453000 gallery:
The refineries at the bottom left are utilizing a new 0.15 recipe - coal liquefication to get more oil for the price of coal.

Qute exacly so, I imagine the satellite transmits scientific data to the silo :) not like that matters much, but I think it makes some sense :)

we probably didn’t mention before that you can make uranium ammo and tank shells from U-238, and U-235 can be used to create warheads for rocket launcher missiles which erase about 50 tile area per shot of anything in the way, including you if you don’t run fast enough.
No you didn't, lol.

What a cool FFF
So if you use a steam turbine with normal boiler, it will work, but the turbine will have a poor efficiency. And if you use steam engine with heat exchangers, it will work, but a lot of the heat will be lost for no benefit.[...] The ratio of boilers to steam engines is exactly 1 boiler to 2 steam engines now.
I think it is pretty clear. Thanks devs !

Hi there, I didn't really know where to ask that but I decided to create account here and ask about it under that topic because it's related to the Uranium. The question is - will be there a nuclear weapon? ^^

You will probably need to mod in a barge to land it on.

Wow thats a really big and cool update so much new elements to play with! I assume old savegames will not work annymore because of the massive change in science and powergeneration but thats fine.

This is AWESOME!!!

Just a question though, why not release it Monday? Do you guys have some bugs you are still working on or did you run out of time to build the release today?

Can't work anymore.

By the way, will the uranium ore damage the player when walking over it? lol

When I first saw the mention of space science I couldn't help but turn my imagination to Kerbal Space Program and things like Mystery Goo and science data transmission, hence my question. Thanks for the quick answer.

Make sure you guys all read through the imgur album too, there's a very pasta-like mega factory there and lots of cool pics. I also spotted a mention of coal liquefaction to oil that I had not heard of previously.

Это самый крутой FFF, что я видел. Лучше и придумать нельзя. Так держать!
P.S. Когда увидел новый вид электрического бура, решил что это бур MK2.

This is the coolest FFF I've seen. Better and think of it is impossible. Keep it up!
P.S. When I saw a new kind of electric drill, I decided it was a MK2 drill.

Edit: Asking because of the sulfuric requirement.
I believe they've mentioned that the minimum yield from fields has been raised which should help some.
