IDEA: Seeking a nuclear power buddy.


Recommended Posts

I am seeking a fellow player or multiple players who have or interested in retconning themselves possessing nuclear power. I'm interested in nuclear power only (peaceful atom as @Ahranasays) not in nuclear weapons.

My idea is that Gaellicia along with its partner(s) began the process of developing nuclear power after the end of the Long War (which ended in 1956). Our nations would have built up a necessary knowledge base as well as acquired the necessary materials for nuclear energy. It's possible we made it as far as the construction of research reactors and began to construction of civil powerplants (but not the reactors themselves). Then a nuclear accident elsewhere in the world, perhaps the one in Ceris @Seylos, along with the economic costs led to Gaellicia withdrawing from the partnership and abandoning nuclear power development. Preferably the partner nation(s) figured out how to continue without our involvement and now have successful nuclear power programs whilst Gaellicia does not.

I've included the last part because I think it could lead to interesting diplomatic relations between our nations. A level of distrust and wariness towards us as we withdrew from our commitments to this shared development program. Another important Diplomatic detail is that you would likely have not great relations with @Tagmatium Rules between 1969 and 1995. Relations between Gaellicia and Tagmatium soured in this period (Tagmatium's Rule of the Admirals) so if our nuclear development began in say the 70s, then they may have not been a fan. Of course I could be wrong about this part, I'll wait for Tag to share his thoughts.

Gotneska might be interested it could help our nation modernized its military and gave its navy new capabilities.

Plus we’ve done militarily stuff before so why not a modern one!!

I'm not sure I understand? Military application? Or do you mean like nuclear reactors for ships?

sorry for the the misunderstanding. I was just thinking out loud that something like this could help my navy become more modernized. And we loved to help regardless.
