On a whim I placed some lightning rods around my trees in a grove I had planted and, much to my dismay, they afforded zero protection. I was wondering if anyone with the skills to pay the bills might consider creating a mod which would remedy this. Some suggestions : The obvious - Lightning Rods stop lightning storms from destroying trees within an N-tile radius ( N may be a hard-coded value or a referenced value which can be changed from a config file or a UI ) The balanced - Lightning Rods afford limited protection for trees wtihin an N-tile radius whilst in "Battery Mode" ( Configurable option ). Turning off "Battery Mode" extends the radius of protection to some other value. The new item - Grounding Rods afford extended protection for your trees within an N-tile radius ( hard-coded or referenced from config file ). Grounding Rods do not produce batteries after lightning storms. So, yeah... This would be pretty sweet.
