    The reactors themselves are nearly identical to those originally installed on USS Nimitz, but they're operated somewhat differently now, and the instrumentation and control systems have gone through...

    I feel like there's also the novelty/entertainment factor. Trump's antics are doing a very good job of keeping him centered in the media spotlight.

    I'd be sorely tempted to vote for him just for...

    Are the premium purchases going to carry over to the live version? It seemed very strange to me that they're offering stuff for sale while the game is still in beta.

    I'd hope so, because the design requirements are so different. On top of being able to take whatever nature, routine component wear-and-tear and the stresses of the operating environment can dish...

    Mine slides right on and locks into place easily, at which point it becomes almost impossible to remove.
