Better Future Momentum Engine

BF_Momentum_Engine_Icon.png

This block has four hoverpads in alternating directions, facing repelling surfaces, so that it spins. It's intended for compact builds that need automatic rotation like harvesters, anchored dynamo generators or any other contraption. If placed in alternating pattern, the momentum may be cancelled, so that it can be used almost like hoverbug (however I removed hover turning so it's a little bit trickier to control, so that it doesn't replace the Omni Sphere).

Have fun creating ;)

GeoCorp Geomagnetic Hover Platform

GC_Geomagnetic_Hover_Icon.png
"This powerful flying platform uses unique geomagnetic technology paired with hovering in order to repel surfaces but also attract them, clinging to hills and most structures without touching them.
Movement may feel a little rough on a terrain full of obstacles, and an upside down platform will catch itself in the world's electromagnetic field, making it fly uncontrollably; deploy the Build Beam if that happens."

This idea comes from a suggestion I made in another thread, for a hover that repels and attracts surfaces, eliminating the need for gyros as the tech would self-stabilize itself in relation to the floor or wall, or even upside down under a roof. This concept was inspired by Mario Kart "antigravity" and how the karts seem to cling to the track while floating over it. I plan to make more hovers like these, probably a smaller version for venture, and maybe the eletrostatic wheel.

But how is that even possible?

The magic here is an upside down self-induced hoverbug! Very very powerful one, compressing the hover against the surface it is facing at all times.
There are also invisible angled hovers to make plane transition smooth (approaching a wall and immediately climbing it).

Development for this block was lengthy, it's not perfect either, and don't place it sideways or upside down, as the hoverbug will push in that direction and if there's nothing holding it, it will keep going (having another one in the opposite direction however is likely to cancel it).
Any other questions ask me on discord.

Now go climb those landmarks!
Have fun ;D
