Satisfactory – New Clear Power Plan

In the co-op Satisfactory game with the kids (look, I get to call them “kids” even though they’ve been full adults for over a decade now, it’s my parental privilege) we’ve finally reached the point where we need to consider actually doing the thing we only really joked about early on: Tackling nuclear power.

This’ll take some unpacking. Buckle up.

Zen, my player avatar, about to do absolutely zero damage whatsoever to this bundle of cash on the hoof.
