    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 :

    1. 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 )
    2. 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.
    3. 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.

      I think something like this would be very cool. It makes sense that lightning rods would protect the tall things around it. Great idea. I hope it happens.
