    I figure I would start a thread so that I can post all the different craziness that I create.

    I also welcome any other techs that you feel deserve to play in the Reaper's Playground.

    If you can please post a short video of you tech in action and also any snapshots involved.


    Have a good one

    I hopes of the harvester AI being fixed soon I decided to make 1 Super AI Harvester.

    I plan on sending this guy out to take care of business as soon as I can.

    This tech is set up to work with my new utility trailer as well.

    So far it works really well. Now I just have to try it in the main game when I can.

    Tell me more about the new utility trailer. It looks quite nifty but what is it for?

    The trailer is outfitted with the base parts to collect, refine and generate power for itself. Can also sell blocks that are picked up along the way. It is also a perfect spot to put all your loot while you are Out N About exploring.

    The trailer is also a good base for any mobile processing plant and fabricating stations.

    As long as you can find the filter conveyer this tech is made up of the easier blocks to discover. I tried to make it easy to get early in the game.

    Should come in handy while I am exploring.

    Give it a try and let me know of any other uses you can find.;)

    Like it, you usually do tecks with some sweet details... now it just needs moar aesthetics :D

    This one was built to function as a mid level utility AI vehicle coupled with the trailer to handle anything.

    You should see the bigger brother to this set. I just have to finish the truck and then I can unleash it on the world. I think it has those details you where looking for ;). Only time will tell.

    I finally got the truck and trailer from above into the main game at a cost of about 400 000BB's I think it was.

    So far it has been a very good tech during testing.

    After spending a night working at two FPS while working on a monster that someday will run nice that looks amazing to me.:D

    This was not the monster tech. This is the small version of it.

    I decided to start preparing for the better crafting system that is coming and made the start of a resource sorting and refining base.

    For just under 600 000BB's it is possible to store every type of resource in the game and have it waiting for crafting or sale.

    At the end of the night or start of the morning this is what I ended up with.

    There is a third section to finish it, but I don't seem to have a picture of it. I will try for later.

    I still have the end to build so when it is done I will post both pictures.

    Instead of another picture I think this shows things a little better.

    Now that is a sorting system :p

    That actually gave me an idea... I'll be right back.

    EDIT: So instead of making a teck in my usual way, I've tried making the processing unit first... This is the result, the refinery work is split for maximum efficiency and only the best materials get picked for the foundry. There are some "issues" I'm still tuning up but the primary testing promises good results.

    By the way, I made this as the hearth of some outer teck, the intake system might be missing too :p
    Cheers and thanks for the inspiration.

    @Andre Salvador Rainha

    You're welcome

    Very good to see you trying to build in different ways.

    A lot of people get stuck building the same way and have a hard time with other styles.

    The only thing is with a system that is so compact and doesn't really allow room for the resources to move you will probably find that when you load that up to the max that it will get thrown around from time to time by the resources trying to move around.

    I usually test a system like that by maxing out the capacity of resources that it can hold and then sit back and wait until it runs through all of them. If it does not get thrown around and runs efficiently it is a good test.

    That sorting system is almost done. I just need to get the end finished.
    The nice thing is that you can expand that system to sort and store as much as you want. In theory you could have every resource and small block in the game sorted and waiting for you.

    I will have to make a new one to handle the larger blocks when that can be done.

    Have a good one

    Same here... same here. And I don't use fixed bases so yea... ;)

    On a side note, I've tested it by giving it 4 full Geocorp tracktor pads, usually its enough to make a quick test, and yea I know about the xenanigans tight and compact systems like these come with and I've learned to control that (making sure the conveiors "beam" doesn't get blocked and when I can block it and no harm is done, etc), it still takes some damage from time to time but nothing serious. I'll try to remember to post the final result when I'm happy with its performance on the "wild".

    I was back working on my sorting base adding some statues like features when I made this little guy. It turned out to be pretty fun for what it is.
    Give it a try if you like. It won't kill any pc's.

    Did you know a TT-rex can run at 34 MPH on an empty stomach? :D

    Fun little thing... what woul happen if someone filled it with fuel tanks and drove it into outer teck?... have to try it xD

    It would be a TT-rex with gas.:D
    Hope it wouldn't smell too bad.

    I have been seeing all these challenges pop up on the forum and decided to make one of my own. As in everything I do it is a little different.

    It is called Reapers A Maze ing Challenge. Tech is named after the challenge.

    What I did is I made a maze that is just under 64x64 with as many turn arounds and dead ends as I could fit with it being the first one that I have built.

    What I was thinking is that if anyone is interested. Take the maze tech from below and make as many runs through as you like and then take your best time for one lap and that is what will determine who gets the unofficial title of Navigator.:D:D

    I made a pass through the maze while recording so that everyone could see what I am talking about. If it looks laggy it is just because of the way I am driving mostly.

    This is my trial run so don't think I took the shortest route, or did I.;)


    What I mean by a lap is you go through and all the way back and crash into the start as fast as you can.
    I used my video to time me and I was able to make a lap in the daytime in 36 seconds and at night in 38 seconds.
    The night time lap is like a difficult setting due to me using too many red venture light bar to light the way. You can almost see where you are going.

    So far 36 seconds is the time to beat.

    Good luck to all that try.

    The prize is your freedom from the maze itself and the unofficial title of Navigator.:cool:

    Enter At Your Own Risk

    Since we must use the honor system when it comes to the times we post for our laps unless you use video's like I did, Please no cheating. I don't think it will happen, but there is usually one out there that tries.

    For these times to even mean anything I ask you to use the vehicle that I added.

    Don't worry about the flying that will be needed for phase 2,3,etc.

    I would also like to see what techs you guy create to run the maze and please post snapshots and your times for all of us to compare with.

    That's about it for now.

    Hope you have as much fun with it as I have.

    Have a good one
