~Highly agile harvester "Moon Rabbit"~

Moon Rabbit.png

Architects of the Future, are you ready to travel countless worlds in style? To glide swiftly across the plains, cross canyons in a single bound and leave nay-sayers in the dust? To give somebody else your hard-earned money? Better Future has the answer to your prayers. The Moon Rabbit™ is our most powerful harvester yet, carrying twice as many Chikamori™ plasma lance emitters our previous model. Four Halo™ wheels, perfectly balanced in accordance with the principles of Feng Shui™, keep the Moon Rabbit™ tilted forwards at just the right angle to scoop up any resources you may need. The Moon Rabbit™ carries two of Better Future's patented Pitch Trim™ gyroscopes, allowing you to modulate its angle to suit your needs. The Moon Rabbit™ also boasts twelve of our Swipe™ collectors, capable of holding enough resource chunks to suit any lifestyle.

The Moon Rabbit™ comes with a sleek metal casing in a choice of black with red highlights or white with blue highlights, elegantly sculpted by Shinto priestesses who bathe in mermaids' tears and shave their armpits with enchanted stalhrim daggers. The casing is not waterproof, nor does it offer protection against explosions, impacts, dust, acid, cutting, bending, lasers, fire, electricity, tearing, crushing, freezing or swarms of bees. The Moon Rabbit™ is not intended for combat, damp enviroments, rocky terrain or hauling heavy goods. The Moon Rabbit™'s boosters will only accept Digniflight™ fuel, and using any other fuel will void the guarantee and may cause the Moon Rabbit™ to explode. Installing any non-Better Future blocks onto the Moon Rabbit™, apart from the two GSO components our designers grudgingly agreed to include, may cause the Moon Rabbit™ to explode. Better Future is not liable for the Moon Rabbit™'s lack of manoeuvreability in tight spaces. The Moon Rabbit™ contains gluten and is not suitable for those with celiac disease.

Size: Sleek!
Weight: So light and beautiful!
Speed: Agile!
Agility: ^_^
Capacity: Just the right amount!
Movement: Four Halo™ wheels, one dual booster.
Armament: Two Chikamori™ plasma cutters, two Streamline™ lasers, two Dot™ lasers.
Defences: One Nano-Aegis™ shield emitter, one Mother of Purity™ repair bubble emitter.
Weaknesses: It's so pretty you may not be able to tear your eyes off it!
Special Features: Pitch Trim™ gyroscopes enable deep angle control.

GeoCorp may make the "best" mining equipment, but are they Better Future? I thought not.

~Fast and exceptionaly agile half-tracked (yes, really) racer with a wicked pink-and-black aesthetic and bonus white bits "Trackmaker"~

Trackmaker.png

The Trackmaker is an ideal racing car for Venture initiates who want to, well, "venture" out into the wilderness. Or at least it would be if initiates had access to the long armour blocks and caterpillar tracks, not to mention the Hawkeye stuff. Even so, it is cheap and effective. Its straight-line speed isn't the highest, but it can take tight corners even with the booster rocket active and tackle steep hills with ease. Comprehensive spoiler coverage means the Trackmaker won't ever slip, and it also has headlights.

The genius behind the Trackmaker was not who you would expect. Hrodulfr Hrodulfrsson of the North is most comfortable making longships out of Hawkeye's desert camo blocks, but after one tankard of mead too many he agreed to enter an endurance race across the frozen tundra. He bet his wife Sigvrunda on the outcome without bothering to check whether it was legal to do so or whether she was up for it, so the stakes were high. Fortunately for Hrodulfr, she was also drunk and raised no objections until four months later when she divorced him, took her share of the longboats and married a typewriter repairman who actually appreciated her.

Anyway, Hrodulfr bought as many Venture parts as he could afford for the race and cobbled them together into the Trackmaker. The half-tracked design proved surprisingly effective in the snow, bringing him a narrow victory, and all was well until Sigvrunda's typewriter broke...

Size: Small.
Weight: Light.
Speed: High.
Agility: Exceptional.
Movement: Two small tracks, two small wheels with mudguards, one booster rocket.
Defences: Um...
Weaknesses: Several.
Special Features: Two headlights suited to foggy conditions.

~Monument to mankind's folly "Light Foot"~

Light Foot.png

Many years ago, when the Age of the Tech was just beginning, the Galactic Survey Organisation commissioned hundreds of designers to create a wheel worthy of the new era. After months of beavering away, they came up with the Little Trekker, the most powerful and cost-effective wheel ever created. While centuries of innovation have slightly diminished Little Trekkers in comparison to other wheels, they still hold a place in our hearts. For that very reason, Kitty Shostakovich, an eccentric engineer and cat-girl, decided to create a powerful and versatile vehicle fit for our modern age which used only those little grey wheels. And two Better Future steering hovers, but who's counting?

The Light Foot can reach a respectable speed over land, with a couple of rocket boosters on hand to get it over steep hills. A light-weight but powerful armament allows it to take on some enemies, although it is easily overwhelmed. It boasts an extremely compact resource processing and block collecting set-up to take care of stuff and things. The Light Foot is even capable of anchoring itself to charge up in the sun. Kitty made sure that the cockpit was tall enough to accommodate her cute little ears and that the pilot's seat had a hole for her fluffy tail, but has not yet been able to come up with a cup-holder that can handle a saucer of milk.

Size: Medium.
Weight: Medium-light.
Speed: Decent enough.
Agility: Pretty good.
Movement: Catamaran-style Little Trekker chassis.
Defences: Shield and repair bubbles. Some frontal armour.
Weaknesses: Wheels have low torque. A large explosion may cripple the entire tech.
Special Features: Mobile SCU, anchoring, resource sale and power generation, retractable solar panels, rocket boosters.
