    Heyo, going to be slowly adding to this post over time.
    (Using Maya for modelling)

    GeoCorp Bucket Wheel Excavator
    [​IMG]

    This block would act as a standard mining tool, only the resources that it gathers would automatically be collected and deposited onto a conveyor belt attached to the rear of the block. Would prevent the need for separate mining and collection tools attached to the same tech. Combat-wise, I imagine it'd be near useless, so it doesn't come without trade-offs.

    GeoCorp Solar Generator
    [​IMG]

    With a power output of 4 GSO panels, this 2x2 block gives players a stronger form of panel that's far more resistant to enemy attacks. However, it would have a longer deploy time, as well as only having connections on one side and the bottom.

    (I'll get around to animating this model sooner or later)

    GeoCorp Flamethrower turret
    [​IMG]

    Originally intended to be used to clear dense forests, I'm sure players will find an 'alternative' use for this flamethrower. Longer range than it's Venture counterpart, and has a higher damage output.

    GeoCorp Autominer
    [​IMG]

    Operating more slowly than the GSO Autominer, the GC variant produces more ore per resource node.

    GeoCorp Large Tracks
    [​IMG]

    Offering more traction than other tracked counterparts, the large GeoCorp tracks are a must for any large scale mobile refinery setup. (6 attachment points long)

    If they do, then there will be some adjustments to the Dev's current pipeline. Lobstrex is using Autodesk Maya, while Anton uses 3DS Max.

    The adjustment is easy because Lobstrex would either send his output to the team as an FBX file or as an OBJ, whatever the team usually handles. If there's animation involved, then it most likely has to be baked into the joints as well (if any)

    GC conveyor is two lines (from what i know) so first tool have to have two conveyor exits to be consistent with GC design. So if you make base of it 3x2 then wheel can be little bigger in all directions.

    @Nightblade Greyswandir - I'm very good at pretending I know what I'm doing ;), and I wasn't even aware GC had conveyor pieces. Have they made it into the stable release yet?
    @Potato Not in particular, almost every 3D application is fairly happy to accept work made in other programs (assuming it's correctly exported, as you mentioned)
    @Gayvid` That's a pretty big question. If you're asking how I modelled them, then you'd be better off finding video tutorials on modelling, it's not an easy subject to explain.

    No this is just what devs told us in streams and on forum in some threads... I can't quote them as it is long ago when that was in any conversation. But I am 99% sure it will be double track of conveyors for GC.

    Sorry for the massive bump, been super busy with work and life in general. Updated with a new Geocorp track model!
