I never refer to my gear as "survival" or "prepper" gear; its all primitive camping gear.

Nuclear facities needs constatant maintenance. If nuclear reactors overheat, they will go boom. They cannot be unsupervised.


why aren't nuclear facilities being supervised? what the hell should i be preparing for?

I'm curious about this map... maps are kinda my thing...

One thing I notice right off is that there are two marks right near me in ILM. Now we do have the Brunswick Nuke Plant right across the river here, but not sure what the other mark is for? Maybe the GE plant in Castle Hayne? They have nuke facilities but no reactor that I'm aware of.


The Southport Plant has two "units". They couldn't put them right on top of each other as you wouldn't be able to discern that there were two there. Similarly there are three at the Greenville SC plant, and two at the Charlotte plant, which is why it's all a huge jumble fug right there.

Yeah, I guess... in other words, shitty map making.

Would have been much better to color code multi-reactors vs single reactors.

What do you mean not exactly? If plants aren't supervised and they lose power and back up generator power, which they will in the event of societal and infrastructure meltdown - then yes, they will blow the fug up.

Edit: the power is needed to supply the coolant obviously, in case I wasn't clear.
