Every reacting element must directly touch PTNM in order to react!

SHLD.png progresses to the next stage and grows instantly without the need for SPRK

Probabilistic reactions

The following reactions happen based on quadratic probability curve, from 0% at 0C up to a 100% chance at 1500C



at over 2 pressure and 200C: GAS.pngINSL.png + 60C

at over 50 pressure and 1000C: BREL.pngEXOT.png + -30C

Hydrogen reactions

There is a class of reactions that occur when both HYGN and another element are nearby.

HYGN.png + DESL.pngOIL.png + WATR.png

HYGN.png + OXYG.pngDSTW.png + SPRK.png + 5C

Two HYGN.png at greater than 500C have a 1/1000 chance to perform cold fusion. This creates one NBLE.png, one NEUT.png, one PHOT, and rarely (1/10) one ELEC.png. This also generates 1000C and 10 pressure.


- It conducts fast like GOLD.png, but with a higher melting point.

- In HYGN.png and OXYG.png power plants

This tutorial save demonstrates the above reactions in game.
