I constantly get reminded each time I kill an invader that "To invade others with your tech, click the Snapshot button." However, I just realize that it saves your tech, and you can post it to social media, steam workshop, etc etc, how would I actuallys POST my tech to fight others as an invader?

Hi, I'm new around here and this was one of the first things I was wondering how does work.

When you create a snapshot of your Techs you'll find the option there to make it an invader, it will prompt you to post your tech on Twitter along with a warning telling you that the current Tech will be sent to invade other players and will be permanently removed from your inventory.

Regarding that last point, I'm guessing it removes the blocks used for it but you'd keep the snapshot to re-build it any other time as long as you have enough spare components for it.

Hope this helps, sorry if the answer was too sketchy, regards!

Wait you need twitter for that right? not over steam or anything?
Right, as long as I attempted to do it it prompted me to link my Twitter account to share my Tech

...I still need to recover my Twitter account which I don't remember the registered email tho.

Twitter sucks, I think devs need to recode the invader code completely to tie it up to Steam instead of Twitter.
Perhaps they could set up a separate workshop or something similar dedicated entirely to Invader mechanic.

Also , it would really be great if the game would be scanning the entire Terratech workshop submitted by all players and would periodically randomly spawn into the game techs designed by the community. Perhaps with some checks done with regards to block counts, BB value and tags and depending on palyer's campaign progression, with fully unrestricted spawning of any techs unlocked when all licences are maxed.

It would also be great if bases and turrets were spawned in as well.
