Tesla & Force Field Rival Rebels mod 164

Hello Rebels! this is Rodol Phito, and this is Epic!

The Rival Rebels Mod update 1.6.4M (For the latest RR version click here) for Minecraft packs a ton of highly experimental features, changes and tweaks to gain efficiency and a better PvP game.

Before moving into Minecraft 1.8 or 1.7.9 or 1.7.8 or 1.7.4 or 1.7.2 :P ... I wanted to finish all the partially done features that I had already started, making the porting simpler and leaving the most on RR 164.

Attention! RR164M is a bug fix update, to tune up the Force Fields & clean up some glitches that crashed RR 164L. For all the details, check out the change log below. If you still find glitches please post a report here.

The amount of new features is insane: the Nikola Tesla Cannon is now adjustable, (hold R key) and it has a badass 3D model and texture. Tesla Weapon Tutorial Here.
The Reactor is finally operational, featuring a ToKaMaK fusion chamber, and Tesla electrode coil on the back to transmit electricity thru the air. The Reactive block and the Bastion structure reinforce the defenses on your base, hosting the Emitter block to project the new Force Fields. Three new Cores were added to enhance the efficiency of the ToKaMak's energy production. Force Field Tutorial Here.
Three automatic Trap Boxes were added for the Land Mine, Mario and Quicksand. Now the Trap blocks are full adaptive to blend with any terrain.
Many crates auto-builds got the new drop to build feature for quick deployment.
All Nukes are beefed up, enhanced to kill more entities and produce maximum damage during the whole explosion cycle.
Now if you set your RR config file's Safe Mode to False the explosion size caps will be lifted to allow you do insanely huge (and very laggy) explosions. Experiment at your own risk!!! 
Also in the update, new translations to Czech! Special thanks to Dominik Sedláček. Děkuji vám!!
Lots of corrections on the Russian translations! Special thanks to Damian Ignatiev. спасибо!!
And corrections to the Finnish translations! Special thanks Aaro Hankonen. Kiitos!

New Tesla & Force Fields!

I made the video to share my progress. The new features were incomplete!

For a detailed explanation on how to use the finished defenses, please check out this Tutorial.
For more information about the New Tesla use this Tutorial.

Hold the R key to set the Weapon Control Tesla Tutorial Here

Attention YouTubers! Due to an Optifine glitch, the Force Field render will disappear when you leave the Emitter off the screen. Please don't blame RR!

Tutorial: How to use the Reactor and Force Fields on Rival Rebels Mod. HERE!

If you have questions, or you find glitches, please visit the RR forum on the Comments tab.

This update pack includes ALL the most shocking defense systems, machines and weapons in Minecraft, featuring the Force Fields Emitters, Bastions, ToKaMaK Reactor, Controller, B-2 Spirit Bomber, M-83 Tactical Nuke, M202-RR (Rocket Launcher), The Ein-Sten (a Laser fragmentation machine), the new Tesla Cannon, the Tsar Bomba, the original Nuke, the Flamethrower, the Plasma Cannon, Rod Disk, Cuchillo, Gas Grenades, explosives, structures, armor & ammo.

Notes: On version 1.6.4M I rebuilt the whole spawn system, for the RR Class/Team selector GUI and the objective platforms. Added the Chip ownership to the nuclear weapons, to stop PvP self-nuking and to allow team mates to go thru the Base Force Fields. Also an Optifine Warning message is in place to prevent youtubers to complain that the RR Force Field is glitchy or disappears or does not bounce when is really Optifine the one glitching the render. 

Happy melting! Always Free!
