GreenTech Attractor and Repulsor Magnets

GT Magnets.png


A powerful magnet with limited collection arc for precision when collecting debris.

This device provides clearance when roaming through debris, instantly repelling loose blocks in a wide arc in front of it.


Even though GT has a very efficient Block Collector, I decided to make those after having some fun experimenting with magnets, specially when testing negative strength values (ended up with a cool repulsion mechanic, I had to use it in a block).


These two blocks have different strategic use.
The repulsor goes well at the front of a tech, specially a melee one, so that any detached enemy parts will be quickly pushed away, clearing the path for your weapons.
The attractor goes well next to an SCU, specially an SCU right under the edge of the magnet as blocks will always end up there then fall for the SCU to pick up, it all happens quite efficiently. The directional nature of that magnet reduces things getting stuck because they won't come from all random directions, only within a 150° arc from the tip of it.

The attractor has similar stats of a GC magnet within its arc, while the repulsor has shorter reach but much faster response and very strong.
Enjoy!

Um, got a small prob.
Had your GC girders.
Good.

But i saw that you had a much tidier pack on steam, so i updated, but i deleted the earlier file from the folders.

Oops.
So my base exploded, and most of it vanished.
So i wanted to reinstall it, so i could rebuild my base with the new girders.
But i can't find them.

Can you point me to the earlier GC girder pack?

Nope, no time for that.

With an automatic converter tool I could consider, or maybe with official sponsorship.

...So I guess probably never.

GreenTech Mobile Refinery

GT_Refinery_Icon.png
A zero waste and highly modular mobile refinery that transforms raw resources into refined ones.

A project started by @isqltychips, thanks buddy :)
This refinery is a heavier alternative to the VEN Mobile Refinery with more APs and health, and supporting any possible block rotation.

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 Rover Wheels

Rover Wheels.png
A small wheel with a relatively large engine for its size; with a high and flexible suspension for exploring rough, uncharted terrain.

Inspired by the vanguard of space exploration rovers, the Discovery Wheel is a great choice for delving into unknown terrain, knowing you will be able to return, eventually.

The Odyssey Wheel comes equipped with its own large engine, providing good speed and traction, while the high suspension and large tires let you explore any terrain.



Grouped my rover-like wheels in a single pack, with a new one, the huge Odyssey Wheel.
These wheels are relatively balanced for their tiers, with more emphasis on speed than strength. The suspension is what makes them unique, being high and wide to provide good ground clearance without losing stability.
The Discovery Wheel got the speed adjusted as it was too fast for its size tier.

That is the last wheel for GreenTech, for a total of 16 blocks in wheel category (3 rover wheels, 4 sphere wheels, 3 disk wheels. 3 tank tracks, 2 hovercraft cushions, 1 geostatic) and the Trasher in weapons category. I guess that's more than enough, for all sizes and tastes! :)

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. Thismedium 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! :)

Oh and this is GreenTech block n°200! Yeyyy :D
