Better Lightning Rods

DESCRIPTION: Improves the effectiveness of lightning rods and allows other items to act as lightning rods.

In the core game, there is a 50% of a lightning strike hitting a lightning rod. That chance is increased by 4% per additional rod up to 70% maximum.

In my version, the first rod gives 50%, the second +25%, the third +12% and so on with each one adding half the bonus of the one before. Maximum protection is 99% with 7 rods.

This mod allows other objects to act as lightning rods, specifically Fun For The Roof I, Dragon On The Roof, Aspiring Spire and Ornery Rooster. They are all just as effective as the actual lightning rod object.

I suggest you get Cyjon's Debugger to ensure proper lightning rod placement.
