Hello there! I am here to provide some feedback and suggestions for this lovely corproration!
Firstly i have a problem with the heavy iron rollers. Their carry weight needs a drastic buff, along with their turning ability. But otherwise its pretty good!

The rotary autocannon buff is a step in the right direction, but it definitely needs more damage, as it still feels quite underpowered. It suffers from big bertha syndrome, too big and not enough damage to make up for the massive size.
glad to have some feedback but:
- the thing with the tracks is that im still updating them to work properly but they are currently at a point where is more of a suspension bug that nearly all tank tracks in terratech have and since the rollers are based on venture ones they really suffer from it till there are 8 of them and nobody knows how to fix that.
- i Currently still mess around with it and try to improve as i keep moving forward with my corp as i do update it everytime i release new blocks for this corp so if you only downloaded it when it was first released try downloading them again to see if you have the updated one or not

as for the rotary
- the Auto Cannon is actually fairly balanced
- for its size it actually doesn't weigh that much and has a similar footprint and weight to the Hawkeye Naval Gun, Sure its not equal to it but can aim faster and deal damage quicker to groups of techs better than the naval due to faster turning speed even with its reload
- also its size is probly the only thing it can compare to the bertha as unlike the bertha it is, for its size, a lightweight, turreted auto cannon that has to spin up to burst fire 60 Explosive rounds
- 1896 dps is what the target in R&D saysand its not bad for a gatling but it doesnt show you the AOE damage that each shot does and thats one of its perks for it
- its also ment to relate to how gatlings back in the day were massive horse drawn weapons that needed alot of space and its own stand to operate

(and a few block updates)





First the Battery:
Old Star External Battery
OS_Battery_Icon.png
- As big as the GeoCorp Battery but only attaches from below
- Like the rest of Old Star its lighter than it looks

- Don't let it break

next the Bubbles:
Old Star Shield and Bubble Projectors
Shield Gen_icon.png Repair Gen_icon.png
- To Old Star, Shield and Repair Bubbles are too high tech for them so they are bound to have some errors (these on on purpose)
- Equal size to Hawkeye, energy drain and heal rate have Old Star Blocks in mind
- Also don't let them break these are unstable tec from Old Star

and now the main power plant of Old Star:
Old Star Eternal Steam Engine

- Its Large
- Its Heavy
- It will roll coal like no tomorrow
- place it on any tech and it will start making power just mind the size

I am here to provide feedback once again! This time it's mostly praise! The power blocks are both beautifully modeled and good in general. And the heavy iron rollers have vastly improved! The new swivel rollers, while a bit janky, function really well! I now have an old star tech that i use as a battle tech...and it functions great!

One of my oldest concepts. . . now finally a working block!!!
Old Star - Dynamite Mortar!

Dynamite_Mortar_icon.png
- to its namesake its a mortar that fires dynamite sticks
- with no target it has VERY poor range so be careful
- with a target it will either arch it or direct fire depending on how close they are
- does not home in but can make up with its AOE
- Dynamite sticks have TWO charges One of any initial impact and a Timed fuse that detonates the whole thing
-its large and since it shoots dynamite so. . . DO NOT BREAK IT

There are also various Block updates for the wheels and Gyros so update them if you wish
- Gyro icons fixed and the Flywheel has an increase in power
- Both Carriage wheels had their stats adjusted
- Clearance Wheel was slowed down as it was too fast for a "Heavy Iron" wheel
