I see... well just got another quick question:

science labs are the only best place to search for plutonium cells? I remember some military outposts have plutonium generators which can be disassembled for a few cells but they are very rare.

yea.  they're rare everywhere though.

manhacks have them as a rare drop too, and scientists can loose several hacks.

Don't forget about the sealed crates.

Someone knows a effective way to remove cars from the street?, sometimes the are kinda light, so with hydraulic muscles is easy to move them, but when they are bigger is hard, i tried crashing them (but maybe my car design isnt good for it, at least not for the repairs), and i tried with a blaster gun, but still...

get a disposable car and gently push them aside.

no there is no easy way.

put steel armor on a truck and ram them at low speeds

Analyzers drop multiple manhacks when you fail hacking them badly enough.  Low computer skill plus electrical protection can be used to farm analyzers for plutonium.

Also, eyebots call police and riot bots, which have plutonium as a rare drop.

But usually, the easiest source is to disassemble power CBMs.  They are very common.
This is the text that goes under the post, and there ^ is the post, so this is where it goes.

You usually have three choices: If it's in good shape, you can often do minor repairs (jumper cable, fill the gas tank) and drive it aside.
 If it's a pile of wreckage, apply some explosives a couple of times, then drive over whatever's left with your vehicle, wreckage will generally fall apart then. It's got little structure to begin with.
 Then there's pushing vehicles out of the way. If they have wheels, no problem, shove them at 10mph until they roll aside.

 If it's not a wreck, it doesn't have wheels, and it's too damaged to drive, then you have to decide whether to to put in the time to repair it or the resources to destroy it.
 Swapping wheels off a vehicle you just moved is probably the fastest thing to do to get it movable. Those hydraulic muscles and a sledgehammer is likely your cheapest option for destroying it

Well, the fusion blaster rifle used to be a pretty darn easy way... I haven't tried it a while.

Of course, that's pretty late game (both to have it and to have power to burn like that).

Also, if you're in the early game (and it's not too dangerous around there), simply disassembling it can be a decent way to grind mechanics.

I'm having a hard time loading a game, not sure if it's due to the amount of mods it has to load.
The main difference is we focus on content and internal systems

I think is more of how much you have explored,is that extra time noticeable even when saving?,or well it depends, how much time does it take?.

I found a shipwreck and it had one of those plutonium generators, i took it apart, as I didn't seem to be able to active it or move it or anything... I think it's the first one I had seen. I think I got 9 plutonium cells from it on default spawn settings.

Is it OK to eat the roe that those crabby things drop? Or is there something else besides eating it I can do with it, like craft? It's not like marloss berries or anything where it will change me, will it?

Sweet! Is there a way to tell how long I've been alive?

Also, is anyone else not able to update past 6851 like me? I'm using Win 10 x64 Tiles, but I don't seem to be able to update on any of the settings through the launcher, like curses, x86, etc.
