To make a working Uranium Reactor you need the following:
- Minimum 8 Uranium Rods that produce Steam out of boiling Water.
- Control Rods.
- Pipes to transport Water from Sea or Lake into the Uranium Reactor and to transport Steam out of the Uranium Reactor into a Steam Turbine engine.
- Pumps on the Water Pipes.
- Area with active Power grid.
The Pipe with Steam out, has to be placed in the top of the Uranium Reactor and into the Steam Turbine engine at the end with the "arrow up" sign which is the opposite end of where the power connector is.
The Uranium Reactor must be without any leaks. Any holes over the Waterline will prevent the system to work properly.
It's possible to make a Uranium Reactor with fewer Uranium Rods than 8, but it will be unstable.
