    Title is wrong, there is no such tag as FFUN. Changelog must show two most recent changes without spoilers.

    It's [Battery] and not (Battery)

    It's just to have a block in wich we can store energy
    It's more for the RP than another things because a lever can also make that ^^

    I can't really find any uses for this mod... Can you explain one of them to me?
  28. Offline


    At the moment when the source of power (lever or something) is too farr away from the battery the battery won't charge.. Are you going to change this? It's pretty anoying.

    I'll need first too make a switch close to the battery and then father away from it. Else it doesn't going to work. Sounds like a bug for mee :p
    \i'll hope i've explaint it good enough

    Don't now what is wrong. Sometimes it's working and on another place its nog...

    --- Release of the version 1.1 ---
    See changelog for news

    @Dallin Boyce
    Are you sure it's a sign on your battery ?
    Try to delete the save and try again

    It's essentially for Rp, making batteries
    Yes a lever can do better, I know but batteries are much funnier
