    The Duck Republic is currently preparing peace convoys to send to the other kingdoms. We will first visit the (currently named) Legion Region Kingdom as it is closer. The convoy will be sent after the Kingdom has been renamed and we have at least one citizen.
    Canceled due to wars.

    I can't post techs because I'm on a long vacation and I don't have access to TT for multiple weeks whether I like it or not :(

    New war plans have been made. The threat of the Kiwi Kingdom is too large. We must take back Birdseed Plateau from the Federation to gain access to more resources. Scout planes have been sent ahead to scout out the plateau. We will await their return.

    It seems like the Federation has not sent reinforcements yet! We shall send one Sky Frigate MkII to deal with the defenders!

    400MB is far too little, check for the bloated cbs.log issue.

    Yeah, I know. Turns out the disk had ~1.5GB left after I cleaned and optimized it, so TT works now.
    P.S. I don't think this issue exists within Windows 10, as when I was cleaning the disk, the Windows Temp files file only had ~270MB of stuff inside, which I guess is normal for a laptop that has not been cleaned since Feb 2016.
    I really need to tell my uncle to clean his disk more often

    Here are the blueprints for the Skytrain, as promised,
    RAILHEAD (Prototype version)
    Railhead.png
    Prototype version of the Skytrain. Can carry 2-3 carriages safely, struggles at 4.
    RAILHEAD HD (Heavy-duty normal version, used in Community Core)
    Railhead HD.png
    ^Awkwardly small
    Normal version of the Skytrain. Can carry 4 carriages safely, struggles at 5-6.
    RAILCARRAIGE (Yes I know I spelt carriage wrongly)
    Railcarraige.png
    Standard carriage unit. Can carry 8 GEO resource blocks, 6 GSO resource blocks and 2 VEN resource blocks at once. It can probably carry more, but I can't do much testing because the train lags my game.
    HOW TO ATTACH:
    1. Spawn in Railhead of choice
    2. Spawn in number of carriages needed in a line behind it.
    3. Switch to first carriage and align front coupling to the rear coupling of Railhead
    4. Detach HE Bracket on front coupling
    5. Move forward until HE Bracket can be reattached inside rear coupling, as seen in the thumbnail for the Railcarraige
    6. Repeat steps 3-5 for remaining carriages
    7. Charge them and you're done!
    HOW TO FLY:
    1. Switch to Railhead
    2. Hold W to move forward and straighten carriages
    3. Hold W until you reach 45-50 mph. Continue to hold W and lightly tap Shift to achieve liftoff angle
    3.5 Hold W to fly
    4. Once leveled out, you may tap Shift again to gain height. A and D keys to turn
    5. Land by gliding down. Do not press S!
    DO NOT HOLD SHIFT. DO NOT GO UP AT MORE THAN A 45 DEGREE ANGLE. DO NOT PRESS S UNLESS ON THE GROUND.

    COMMON ISSUES:

    Q: Oh no, I'm stalling! What do I do?
    A: Well, you're done for. You might have gone up at too steep an angle or pressed Shift for too long. There is nothing for you to do but wait for your inevitable demise by falling to the ground and dying.

    Q: I can't take off! What's happening?
    A: You might be too heavy! Try reducing the number of carriages or your payload! It is very dangerous to fly an overloaded train!

    Q: Why is the train nosediving?
    A: The carriages are misaligned! Don't worry, try gliding for a bit and restarting the engines (No need to press Shift). The train should fly normally again!

    Q: The train is turning to one side!
    A: It might be because you did a tight turn! Try turning to the opposite side to realign the carriages.

    Dammit, I was planning an alliance with you too (we have a common enemy, the Kiwis)

    Are you the current leader or...?

    This declaration of war is too unclear, I will personally ride an airship to visit the Lemon Kingdom and ask its citizens.
    EDIT: To clarify, this war declaration was not made by the leader of the Lemon Kingdom, which is why I'm unsure.

    I personally have no grudges over who changes allegiances. The Lemon Kingdom has withstood the tests of time and has endured countless wars. One man does not make a difference.

    As promised, here is a cheap MBT as a trade agreement. I call it the Turtle. :) AM01 Turtle E.png
