GreenTech Clover Hover

GT_Clover_Hover_Icon.png

A four-way sloped hover with limited steering but good obstacle avoidance and smooth navigation.

A new 2x2x1 hover for GreenTech with slightly sloped corners, for getting over hills and trees with ease (even more at 2x hover power).
Compared to the 2x2 GSO hover it is stronger and a bit higher floating, but only top APs.
A nice addition for the smaller flying GT techs :) Or large ones that want a bit more maneuverable alternative to the Stratos Hover.

GreenTech Thrusters Pack

Update May 10th -
Fixed a missing model.

Thrusters.png


A small and simple thruster but quite efficient for its size.

Medium sized thruster with flexible usage, mounted on a gimbal so that it can perform small rotations of 15°.

A hefty thruster mounted on a gimbal, capable of rotating 30° on either side.

A powerful set of gimballed thrusters covering two different axis for better maneuvering large Techs.\n It is an atmospheric adaptation of a very similar model used in spacecrafts, for sublight speed navigation.

This thruster works in all six ways, and doubles as structural block.



Decided to group my previous thrusters on a single pack (some had very small balance updates) as well as my new block, the Starship Thruster.
The new thruster works with the middle jet rotating left/right, while the side jets rotate up/down, making it a nice piece to place at the back of a Tech to give it more speed and decent turning, regardless of the block orientation.

GreenTech Sandblaster

GT_Sandblaster_Icon.png

A jet of sand so highly pressurized it can easily push things on its way, and the abrasiveness makes for a great cutting tool.


This is another flamethrower-based weapon that shoots particles and they go through shields. This medium sized gun has no gimbal but a good reach, 600DPS, and the most important feature, very strong push!
The push happens when the particles hit a Tech, regardless of team. You can use it to push yourself, but you need a sloped surface to redirect the particles, otherwise they will bounce back and forth and cancel the momentum. If used on the terrain, they will bounce and hit your tech, pushing it upwards, but it's very unstable and sudden, somewhat like a jetpack.

Hope you all enjoy playing with it and finding creative uses for the Sandblaster push! :)

GreenTech Viewports - Top, Bottom and Front

Update April 30th - Locked each to horizontal rotation.

Viewports.png

Reinforced glass dome with a decorated interior and a very broad field of view, a must have for the watchful ranger.
Press 'R' to cycle cameras.



Wanted GreenTech to have some neat viewports for general first person usage, which is great for driving and fighting, specially planes.
The top one has a lot of decoration in the cockpit like a cushion and a round control panel, the front one has a bit less, and the bottom one has glass instead, like another strong layer of glass where people could look through with much more safety.

GreenTech Solar Flare

Update February 1st - Visual remodel.


GT_Solar_Flare_Icon.png

This massive equipment generates powerful fields to gather and charge air particles, creating a scorching ball of plasma, magnetically controlled to target nearby enemies.
The highly efficient explosion can disintegrate matter, leaving no ecologically harmful wastes behind.


https://gyazo.com/b55133c05662a3fee9ddd16f3b0e3f7c
https://gyazo.com/e8632e09e8db0bf38c7283071ba4e868

One can imagine this weapon as a fusion between the spore launcher and the volcano mortar, with the projectile tracking enemies much like the spores, while dealing a massive explosion even more destructive than that of the mortar.
The pros of this weapon are the high damage, long duration of seeking, somewhat flexible for weapon placement, plenty of APs and high health.
The cons are the massive weight and size, and the slowness of the projectile, making it avoidable for an average speed tech trying to get away from it (that is a recurring downside on other GT weapons).

Hope you all enjoy launching mini suns at your enemies!

GreenTech Wheels Pack

Update April 30th -
Locked all non-rover wheels to horizontal axis.

GT Wheels.png


I decided to group all my wheels on a single pack, I also updated some tire visuals and I did various minor adjustments to stats (specially parking brake, some wheels had it too low so the Tech wouldn't stay put).

As to those new to GT Wheels, I'll share some bits of explanation:
  1. The first design group of wheels, on the top left, are the Rover Wheels.
    They have average stats for their sizes and high/wide suspension, providing at the same time stability and ground clearance.
    Still on the left side there is a special coiled wheel that clings itself to terrain. Has high traction, below average speed, and very high suspension travel with excellent ground clearance and perfect stability; the Tech will never ever topple or lose grounding during boosts.

  2. The second group, on the top right, are the Omniwheels.
    They work in any placement direction, turn very well and can strafe, with decent speed and traction.

  3. The third group, on the bottom left, are the Tracks.
    These have above average stats for a large track, no suspension issues like vanilla tracks have, and they have much more longitudinal grip than lateral, which lets the Tech turn decently.

  4. The fourth group, on the bottom right, are the Disc Wheels.
    Lots of APs, easily stackable, and the larger ones can act as hull, housing equipments inside. Tanky health, high traction, average speed and poor turning, like a hybrid between wheels and tracks.
    The spiked one also acts as a melee weapon, destroying anything on its path. Slow speed but absurd grip.

There's also the Landing Gear that doesn't need any explanation.

Some usage examples:

GreenTech Collab Blocks

GT Collabs.png

GreenTech had some blocks made for it by other creators, and soon I'll be porting GreenTech to Steam, so I decided to ask these creators permission to maintain and update said blocks, in preparation for that other step. Those are all really good ideas!

---
Raven made the Vapour Radar:

This small and compact radar is the predecessor of ''The Eye'', therefore it also sports increased range. However, due to it's compact size it lacks the speed and altitude measuring capabilities, while also packing a bit more weight than other radars.

---
Isqltychips made the Voyager Cab and the Pillar Battery:

A rugged and robust GreenTech cab designed to withstand any harsh enivornment, and make mobile repairs if necessary. Comes with a built-in radar to locate exotic biomes!

A large battery with almost double the amount of compacted supercapacitors as the Eco battery has, resulting in being almost twice as heavy and expensive.


---
Licflagg made the Phlogus Spore Pod, which during some adaptations became the Nox Storm, which follows the same concept:

Merging the technology of the Nox Bubble Projector and the legendary 'Phlogus' Spore Pod from FS Industries, the Nox Storm swarms the battlefield with corrosive homing spores.

---

A couple blocks come in new IDs, the cab and the weapon, while the radar and the pillar are basically the same so they kept their IDs.

I'd like to thank again these great creators and great members of our community, today the family of GreenTech blocks gets a bit larger and the corp gets a bit more fun to play with :)
And thank Sozin, Legionite and Exund for the frequent help with JSON issues.

GreenTech Anchored Wind Turbine

Update April 30th - Locked rotation to horizontal axis.
GT_Wind_Turbine_Icon.png
A reliable source of constant wind power energy, which for safety reasons only generates power when firmly anchored (it will spin loosely if attached to an unanchored Tech).
Also comes with a battery and a wireless charger, for transfering energy to nearby power lines or Techs passing by.


This is a simple anchored energy generator block with extra functionalities for ease of use.
The amount of energy is decent at 200/s, a little more than a single BF solar panel (170) but less than a geothermal (300). Unlike both of these, it can be anchored anywhere at any time to generate energy, inluding floating bases with sky anchors.
Its footprint however is considerable, so I advise distributing them on a small field and protecting it with turrets, or even add one to the back of a turret so it will have a constant power source.

Hope you all enjoy it! More clean energy blocks to come ;)

GreenTech Mobile Electro-Furnace

GT_Furnace_Icon.png

A mobile electric furnace with a series of complex fuel processing systems which gets the most out of a single chunk, even if the whole cycle takes a little longer. Comes with a built-in small battery.
It exhausts pristine clean fumes, so clean in fact they would be invisible if not for customer complaints about 'not seeing a single puff of cool furnace smoke'; so a black smoke hologram was added to go alongside the fumes.

https://gyazo.com/ac55a1a5d7fede924b730e83497d529b


Originally I planned to make a Biomass Furnace which would only accept fibron and output a lot more energy with it than other furnaces, but this proved impossible coding wise. So instead I made a large and highly efficient furnace.

The furnace stats are identical to the GC Furnace, which is a very good one for chunk efficiency and output rate. So I kind of made it mobile with 2x the size, and the small battery with 2500 capacity (GSO Battery has 1500) comes as a bonus.
I know that spamming GSO mobile furnaces is a common practice and a strong competition to any larger furnaces for the combined fast rate from inexpensive fibron chunk burning, but the GT Furnace stats are still very solid and leaves more chunks available for other uses such as selling.
You can carry a silo around to store a reservoir of fuel chunks and they will last for a long time without replenishment, and constant power generation as they are slowly burned one by one.

Enjoy ;)

GreenTech Biodomes

Update April 30th - Locked rotation to horizontal axis.

GT Biodomes.png


  • A biodome containing a small grasslands patch.
    Acts as a sustainable source of Fibron, extracted carefully from the roots of the trees.
    The grasslands biome is lush and highly stable, demanding very little care and making it the cheapest biodome; a great starting point for any prospector trying to go green.
  • A biodome containing a small desert patch.
    Acts as a sustainable source of Rubber. The rubber drips through the dry sand soil, coming from the trees as an abundant byproduct of their heat protection mechanism.
    The desert biome is hardy but needs heat and moisture control, demanding basic support systems and making it more expensive than the grasslands biodome.
  • A biodome containing a small rocky ridge patch.
    Acts as a sustainable, variable source of Fibron, Rubber and Luxite, utilizing many methods to syphon those from the soil and roots of the trees.
    The hills biome is complex and diversified, a sophisticated caretaking system is required to keep it stable in such small artificial environment.
  • A biodome containing a small mountains patch.
    Acts as a sustainable source of Luxite. The crystals are harvested in an underground chamber as it grows and regrows from a symbiotic relation with the trees.
    The mountains biome is not a needy one, however, in order to get optimal Luxite symbiotic growth the biodome conditions need to be highly stable, demanding a quick-response support system and making it somewhat expensive.
  • A compact biodome containing a very small grasslands patch.
    Acts as a sustainable, mobile source of Fibron.

    The compact grasslands biome, unlike the larger anchored one, is much less resilient, confined to a very limited area and suffering the constant physical stress of movement. The high technology employed within makes it the most expensive biodome, despite its tiny size.

The description is very clear on what each one produces.
The strategic usage of each depends on your playstyle, they're mostly for acquiring these common natural resources without destroying stuff on the world.
The price of the anchored ones goes from 4000 to 8000BB, while the mobile one is 10000BB and has the clear advantage of being a reliable mobile source of energy (via furnace burning).
These are the only blocks planned for "infinite" resource production, save for a potential atmospheric carbite condenser. I didn't want easy resource generators for every single thing, just for these natural ones that already grow back in nature.

Some data:
  1. Anchored Grasslands Biodome - 1 Fibron Chunk each 9s.
  2. Anchored Desert Biodome - 1 Rubber Brick each 18s.
  3. Anchored Mountains Biodome - 1 Luxite Crystal each 23s.
  4. Anchored Hills Biodome - 1 of either resources at rates 62,5% Fibron / 25% Rubber / 12,5% Luxite each 15s.
  5. Mobile Grassland Biodome - 1 Fibron Chunk each 27s.
  • Anchored: 8x8x6, 80 mass, 10000HP, 24 bottom APs and 4 behind.
  • Mobile: 4x4x4, 20 mass, 5000HP, 12 bottom APs.
These are the jewel concept blocks of GreenTech, I don't think I could do anything more fitting, and I'm very happy and proud with how it turned out.
I'd like to thank Legionite and Exund for technical help :)
Have fun!

GreenTech Mobile Delivery Cannon

GT_Delivery_Cannon_Icon.png

This delivery cannon encourages prospectors to be more efficient and refine all their resources before selling, as it does not sell raw resources. It only sells refined resources and components.

Simple mobile delivery cannon and the description says it all :)

Biome Resource Blocks, Mobile Fabricator and Receiver


GT Crafting Blocks.png

In this small pack we have these mixed resource blocks, the mobile fabricator and a very large receiver.

---

The Receiving Hub is a 4x4x1 block with high range (more than the BF Receiver) and high capacity. It's a good block for large bases.

---

The Biome Resource Blocks comes in 6 variants of refined resource chunks:
  • Grasslands 1 _____ 15 Fibron + 5 Rubber
  • Grasslands 2 _____ 10 Erudite + 10 Luxite
  • Rocky Ridge ______ 10 Plumbite + 10 Titanite
  • Desert ____________ 10 Ignite + 10 Oleite
  • Mountains ________ 10 Rodite + 10 Luxite
  • Salt Flats __________ 10 Celestite + 10 Carbite
The first one follows the average rate of fibron to rubber from trees. Other resource blocks follow 50/50 rates.
Luxite appears in Grasslands 2 and Mountains firstly because theres 11 resources so something would need to repeat, and secondly because it's common in those biomes so you'll always be encountering some of these. Same goes for plumbite and titanite, it's more of a overworld resource chunk than just Rocky Ridge, it's just more common there.

These mixed resource blocks were made for mobile bricking of resources.
The idea is that with mixed resource blocks you only need 6 Mobile Fabricators to handle all chunks in the game, and if any excess resource is clogging your silos you can find the combining variant to finish the bricking very close by, within the same biome.

---

The mobile fabricator comes as an important piece in this mechanic, that's the main reason it is mobile.
For now it will craft GT and GSO blocks due to unofficial modding constraints, soon I'll have it on Steam Workshop within the official tool' GreenTech custom corp. The fabricator is a step in that direction, of course, every corp needs to have their own.

I used the gso fabricator for the animations and it was quite a challenge but I like the final result a lot, check it out! :)

---

Hope you all enjoy those blocks, until the next time!

How do we get this on TTMM steam?
Right now? you don't.

Raf would need to convert the mod for Nuterra Steam, which is it's own ordeal.
(and that assumes he isn't using any of the bits of Nuterra "unofficial" that aren't present in the steam variant)

All tools related to that process are being intensely polished by code modders.
Rest assured that I'll start the conversion process when I am sure it can be done smoothly, always thinking on the player experience, specially how well GT integrates on campaign progression.

I wouldn't move GT from Unofficial to NuterraSteam if that took away any existing feature related to campaign availability and processing of blocks.

Recently custom corps blocks got a special fabricator, that might make a scrapper possible too, we can already buy blocks on stations or get them from crates, so I believe this core campaign experience will flow well with GT on NuterraSteam.
Custom corps still don't have support for custom skins painting, but I bet soon we'll have that too, another reason for me to make that port. Code mods will also migrate, enabling special features in my blocks to work in the NuterraSteam version of them as well.
And GT enemies on campaign are still far away but I look out eagerly for that day :) as well as missions.

I really want it all available on Steam, easy access for everyone, and if the devs like it we can make it a pack for consoles, who knows? I trust my content quality with all the sweat and passion that goes in it, and I want everyone to be able to enjoy it :3 heheheh

GreenTech Mobile All-Block Scrapper

Update April 30th - Locked rotation on horizontal axis.
GT_Scrapper_Icon.png

A scrapper that can scrap any block, on the move.

Following public pressure for a better resolution to the galactic trash problem, the Corporations joined with GreenTech to create this complex mobile recycling machine. Environment cleaning operations are now switfly returning many worlds to their natural state, and in a very lucrative way.



I always wanted a way of chewing on enemies as you move about, and in my head that would be the perfect block for Space Junkers.
But GreenTech also has a very valid lore reason to have such block, and by doing so we won't have to wait for it any longer. By the power of modding, the future is now!

It pairs well with the mobile fabricator and the biome resource blocks, and you can sell the components for a quick buck.
You will never again be forced to stop in place and click a thousand times to scrap the 999 GSO One Blocks and other trash cluttering the inventory; scrap these blocks right as they are catched from the enemy!
Just be careful not to scrap anything you would want to use or which you just bought from a terminal, that's the only downside to this playstyle. Build Mode will deactivate it temporarily.

Have some more views, I had a lot of modeling work done for this block, specially in regards to adapting it to another scrapper animation :3
