I tried an empty 2X2 nuclear reactor in GT6.14.20 in order to watch its explosion, then I found an interesting thing.
STEP1: I built a 2X2 nuclear reactor which keeping no coolant and filled it with two kinds of fuel rods.
I used the cover and lever to turn the reactor on.
Green:U235 fuel rod
STEP2: I used another empty rod to right click with the empty rod.
Then all existing rods disappeared.
STEP3: I used other rods to fill the reactor.
However, they disappeared, too.
The amount of Co-60 fuel rod has reduced from 14 to 10.
Turning off the reactor to fill it will not affect the disappearance.
STEP4:I destoryed the reactor, then nothing dropped (except the lever).
I tried several times, then got a possible law:
- Nuclear reactor must be empty and open.
- There should have two or more fuel rods with “This Fuel is Critical”
- Interacting with the existing rods with rods is essential.
