Tech ownership policy:

If you make a tech and want to make it an official tech of the Mindless Dominion Arsenal, all you need to do is to ask me to do it. The benefits of giving your techs to the Mindless Dominion arsenal are: you get to slapp a fancy M.D. in front of it on the steam workshop and get a couple more subs/clicks that way. I will also add it to the "Mindless Dominion Arsenal" steam workshop collection, currently the 6th most popular collection on the workshop.

In order for me to add a tech to the official M.D. techs, I will need to make sure it fits M.D. design standards. Now that doesn't mean that I am going to make sure you don't do stuff that I don't like to do on my techs (weapon spam, leave exposed internals), that is why I opened up the Mindless Dominion; to get new design philosophies and strategies. I just need to make sure it's a good tech that works. I may add a few decorations to it and maybe make a few pictures for the steam workshop slideshow to help promote it once you're given the all-clear and publish it.

If you are a part of multiple kingdoms: you get to choose which of your techs are licensed to the Mindless Dominion and which are licensed to other kingdoms. I allow for cross-kingdom designs, so as long as the kingdom which you've previously built a tech for says yes, you can add designs from other kingdoms that you've made (or have full ownership of) to the Mindless Dominion Arsenal.

Once you give me permission to add a tech to the M.D. arsenal, the M.D. has to give it back in order to return your full rights of it. You can't retract a tech, essentially. Once you declare you're giving a tech to the M.D. and I (or the current leader of the Mindless Dominion) agree, there's no going back. You've put your trust in the Mindless Dominion to give your tech back to you if you have a good reason.

Tech Ownership Rights/laws: So I've talked a lot about owning a tech, but what does it mean? Well there are three classes of ownership that you could have/grant:
M.D. Full Ownership Rights: Gives the owner the rights to alter the design, alter the name, alter the functionality/purpose of the tech, alter the availability of the tech (does it need EXP or mods), alter who gets credit for the tech, and alter it's lore. Essentially you can do whatever you want to the tech. This ownership is by default given to the original designer of a tech. This class of ownership can only be owned by 1 person.
M.D. Partnered Ownership Rights: This is for when multiple people worked on a tech and they both want to be able to have full legal access to it. Either owner of the tech has full access to all the rights that M.D. full ownership has. This type of ownership can only be obtained by being given it by someone with partnered ownership or full ownership.
M.D. Half Ownership Rights: This type of ownership is only a title and is obtained from someone with full ownership or partnered ownership. You are technically allowed to do anything to the tech except for alter who gets credit: that is decided by the one who gave you the ownership. The reason I said "technically" is because if the one who gave you the half ownership wants you to change something, then you are legally required to do it. Both the giver of the Half ownership and the half ownership owner have the right to remove the half ownership at any time. Half ownership is automatically given to anyone if the full owner gives them their snapshot to mess with.
If you decide to disobey the ownership laws when posting a tech to the forum or the steam workshop, your tech submission will be reported and requested to be deleted. The Mindless Dominion only enforces these rights when dealing with any techs entangled with M.D. affairs.

The owner of the Mindless Dominion, being the enforcer of the laws, can technically not abide by them. But if he/she attempts to do so, members of the MD can call for an impeachment (described in a different article).

Anything?

[The new BF cab makes perfect sense because it has to hold all that hover equipment]
Welcome to the Mindless Dominion, Apersonn!

I personally haven't messed around with better future all that much because physics are still broken, and many of my helicopters and VTOLs don't work because of it, but I do like the aesthetic of the new BF cab.

As a citizen of the Mindless dominion, you get to make your own subcorporation for making techs. You can name the subcorporation whatever you want, and have it make whatever types of techs you want. Once I review your techs (just to make sure they don't have any major flaws and such), you get to post them in the Mindless Dominion arsenal steam workshop collection- the 6th most popular collection on the workshop. You also get to brand them with a fancy "M.D." in the front, making them seem more official.

You have no idea how long I have been waiting for you to join. The literal second I first saw your username I was like "That man belongs in the Mindless Dominion"

Planetary defenses lowered, you are clear to dock in the main city. Welcome to the Mindless Dominion!

I know a bakery down the road from the capital building that has some killer scones, actually y'know what I'm gonna brb because I just made myself hungry for those scones. In the meantime you can talk to my associate Seth_Seth

Ok just got back with the scones, gonna come up and bring you a bag in just a sec. Which ship are you onboard? I wouldn't want to go give these scones to some random captain (although I'm sure he would appreciate it)

SRVAF-204 has landed on the warship that your original transmission came from. He reported that he dropped the scones off outside your door on the landing platform, then left. Can I get a confirmation that you have received the scones? You may not want to leave them out there too long or they might get cold.



(that took me a good two minutes to do btw)

Receiving, Mindless Mr. Awesome. Welcome Indeed. Consider your Kingdom under the Protection of our Fleet, and the services of the Mindl3ss SkunkworX at your disposal, Awesome. We, T3h Mindl3ss have arrived.

(Weapons Deactivate. Flagship descends from fleet toward Capitol. Fleet deviates from Blockade formation into a Defensive Orbital Perimeter. 3 groups of 3 cruisers deploy their Needle Interceptor Wings and begin system wide Interdiction patrols.)

(Planet-side: As Newsreels cast the glorious reveal of This newly formed alliance, Stunned citizens Stood in uneasy relief. The sudden arrival of such a formidable and advanced fleet could have spelled disaster for any world. Their unease was soon cast aside to Awe as the sun eclipsed. High above, the flagship of the Mindl3ss fleet, A massive highly modified Better Futures 'Event Horizon' Battle-cruiser dubbed the "Edge of Sanity" began it's final decent to the Planet's surface. As the spaceport came into view, Mindl3ss himself Chuckled from his position on the Bridge. Dock... Right. Captain Take up stationary position over the city Keep them in the shade for a few minutes after I depart. Then Go for a cruise. Gather as much planetary data as the Edge will give you until i call for you. The Captain gave a slight nod and the ship leveled out, eclipsing even more of the Capitol (Needs a name by the way) As the Massive cruiser slowed to a stop, a small shuttle-craft emerged from the rear fight deck flanked by four Needle Interceptors. As Mindl3ss began the landing sequence people on the ground watched his shuttle fold it's wings in and it's engines rotated down into VTOL arrangement and four small landing struts extended from the bottom. Such alien technology, but encased within the smooth white shell of a Better Futures Shuttle. And beside it, the star-fighter escorts seemed to retract as they landed, shortening and compressing their wings to land in a smaller profile. As they sat in tight formation on the landing platform, steam jetted from the sealed cockpits. And they opened in unison. As the steam cleared, five cloaked and armored black figures marched towards the spaceport in a perfect chevron. Though they carried no guns, one could only assume them to be armed from their dress. Black helmets with individually stylized face plates made them nearly indistinguishable. The only obvious difference was the one in the center. His helmet was adorned with a pair of large curved horns and his armor was laced with Gold filament tracing the intricate runes carved into it's surface, and his cloak was crimson where the others were black. They Approached the Star port Gate, and Stopped, Awaiting Emissary.)

And now for the Not RP stuff.
So Awesome, we meet again. I hope theres no hard feelings from last time. I really dont care about the name thing, i just really didnt want the pistons thread to get derailed. And speaking of Pistons, as you might have noticed iv been doing a lot modded work lately. Now i havnt really tried to upload my Modded works to the Workshop, but I have seen a few there from other builders. So not only do i bring the gifts of My alegance and my standard techs, but id like to gift my Modded ones as well, and maybe help some folks with modded construction as iv already done for a few others independantly. Also this is an effort to help grow the modded comunity and interest in mods and modders for terra tech. right now there's basically only 2 modders and half a dozen of us actively play testing for them (from the forums at least, not sure about discord). And well, i dunno. when the lemon kingdom first happened i thought it was stupid and swore i would not jump on the kingdom train. Well, i didnt really have the choice this time as you kinda used my name to do it. But, at least your kingdom has substance beyond mindless (no pun intended) dribble as it serves as a Workshop hosting servace. In short, I approve, so im joining. Also Other stuff, PM pending.
