    Finally found a way to prevent Tech elevation from sliding!

    Meet the next-gem of TAC's secret R&D.

    May not look like much, but that is what makes it shine.

    The Horizontal And Vertical Control System [HaVCS](Hav-sus) is an extension on the "airborne control with treads" idea, but with also added control over the elevation rather than just movement across the horizontal plane by using two perpendicular slopes to allow for unparalleled control that never moves unless "A", "D", "W", "S", or "Shift" is pressed.

    Its research and development was intended to find an effective solution to hoverships that would just float away or slowly descend when left alone.
    This was, of course, to figure out how to make a fully functional high-altitude carrier that could house planes beyond the reach of any grounded and heavily weaponized Tech, even cruise missile spam. The only way to take it down would be to attack it via a hovership or actual aircraft. (How cool would that be?!)

    Unlike the AGALS, it doesn't use tread push potential to float the whole Tech's mass, but it can be retrofitted to operate like the AGALS with less efficiency, because it is intended to be used in hoverships. Using it as a replacement for the Hover Bug is another matter entirely, as it instead causes intense drag when used in such fashion.

    About the carrier- it is the Dreadnaught mega-project but with a runway strapped on top. Such the build would utilize thorough amounts of AGALS, Axial Stabilizers, and the new HaVCS for stability.
    This will all allow the ability to handle changes in mass (aircraft leaving the craft and landing to stay), staying still/no drifting (landing and docking made easy), massive multi-Tech turrets for defense, and the goal of an airborne base of operations for TAC.

    Just another major find by the diligent scientists and their AI at TAC, keeping TAC at the forefront of the Tech-nological advantage in comparison to the other kingdoms out there. You can thank the GSO treads for existing because of this.

    More to come, with eventual video too.

    Permission to use this method?

    wait, so we can now prevent any techs from attacking us in non-RP tt?!?!?!?!?

    Stable enough to land an aircraft on!

    Now to make it more reliable

    how do you make it happen?

    So it can go w a s d and up... can it go down?

    Moving forwards or backwards makes it fall at a manageable rate

    But how do you make it tho?

    After the unstable failure of the first prototype spinning out of control, the mark 2 HaVCS incorporated GEO treads instead. It should be able to hold vertical height far more effectively, but will still drift despite the patch notes saying otherwise.

    W and S work as up and down in this build.

    V2 can handle heavy loads, although recoil sends it rocking a little. A version of this with four modules spread out would be absolutely ideal for skybases or space elevator anchors. If only the game had a clipboard type thing!

    They should add a thing on the corner of Tech snapshots with the word: "Tech"
