This update includes all the previous features of the mod plus additions and lots of tweaks to ensure 1.6.2 compatibility.

Please see the change-log below for more detailed info.

How to build the Tsar nuke:

To start, you need to pile 8 crates, and they are 4 nuke tops and 4 nuke bottoms.

Then using the pliers on the top front one you will get the nuke shell.

Clicking the nuke shell center at the circular access latch will open the bomb's interface.

Now you have to set all the components into the right places, Fuse, a timed bomb and 2 Antennae,  and an equal amount of nuclear rods and hydrogen rods on the top and bottom of the load are necessities.
If all requirements are met, the bomb will be armed.
The amount of rods is variable, allowing smaller explosions for small PC's.

If the amount of nuclear and hydrogen rods are not the same the UNBALANCED warning will display.

The crater features new blocks: the scorched stone and petrified wood, two very radioactive and harmful additions, that will drain your health while walking on them. The explosion petrifies trees in place.

Also, I included a new inventory tab for all RR's items.

Plus, more translations, glitch fixing and now you can target practice on flares with the Rod disk.
