Hey, I'd like to have some feedback on these 2 ReactorCraft Designs. I found them here on the forums, but I want to know how they perform on newer ReactorCraft versions. I hope the pictures are understandable.

First one is a breeder:

Second one is a standard fission reactor:

Third is a shot of the whole complex:

Looks good. Probably way more neutron-insulation than you really need but looks good.

The quad-of-quads layout is very popular. I do this all the time with both breeders and regular fission reactors.

I can't get a good look at your molten salt heat exchangers; just make sure you aren't overcooling them.

i just surrounded them with 8 steam boilers each. have no experience whether that's good or bad. How do you set up your Heat exchangers?

If its a test world, tinker with using fewer. Don't output the steam into a turbine, pull it into a pipe segment with a pipe pump. Compare results with fewer and more boilers.

If you use too many boilers, the water doesn't get high enough above 100C to create much steam.
