    SILV: Light Grey, solids section

    • melts at 962C
    • virus dies when touching silver
    • conducts sparks the fastest
    • reflects 100% of phot
    • conducts heat very fast
    • acid resistant
    • stkm are healed slowly when touching it

     What are the uses though? Next time you make an element suggestion, please include a 'Uses' list along with it. None of these properties are unique, anyways. Except for killing VIRS, but that's useless.

    Also about killing VIRS, I do kind of consider it a "cheat" element with no uses. Not sure we need something that resists or kills it. Technically SOAP kills VIRS already too.

    It would be nice if this element suggested had some unique and interesting feature. Not tons of stuff, just one property that no other element has that would make people want to use it.

    It also starts to deform like goo under lots of pressure and starts to turn black when exposed to large ammounts of photons.

    Hey, I've already suggested silver in my long and accurate suggestions list. The properties are similar. It's interesting element but it need more uses like @jacob1 has already said.

    Silver could be useful for long conductors or a meltable heatsink that works as well as heac. It could also be used for a valuable element to put into a safe in tpt (eg: silver and gold). Also, you could use it as a destructable thing that could withstand virs. And it is also a element that can withstand acid. You could even use it for a mirror in tpt.

     

    Also, when it turns black, it can be destroyed by acid and would melt at 700C (possibly?).

    "
    faster than inst? lol

    It would conduct before you even open TPT

    Jokes aside, I see it as an element with no uses. Meh.

    Actually, I like this element.

    1. Another METL element that melts at ~1200K that can't be used for high-temperature appliances

    2. Fun reference to nanoparticles

    3. Faster than GOLD? Hey, what if you'd make it so that it would conduct over 5 pixels instead of GOLD's 3? Then we'd have interesting wires.

    4. Reflects more NEUT than all the other elements too, pls?

    5. HEAC fast? Yay for useful destroyable elements, but at 962C melt point I don't see it having a use - it'd just melt and you'd have to put QRTZ around it and that would defeat the purpose because it would be LAVA immediately.

    6. I wish ACID had some point to it other than being made into ISOZ and CAUS. ISOZ being underpowered and CAUS being like a waste toxic gas that can't transform into anything - I don't see this being useful.

     

    My 2 cents

     

    I'd rather want this to burn or be like a 3400C melt point element with #2,#3,#4 and #6 implemented.
