You know the trouble with pistons and swivels is they are known to screw with space-time...

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.
oh yeah the name thing I forgot about that XD
I was joking about that btw I have literally no problem with us having the same name

Well that was an exciting series of events, one minute I thought someone was joining us, the next I thought he was attacking us, the next I was giving him scones, and now I guess you are adding your mighty fleet of alien technology to the Mindless Dominion. Okthen

Sure... i do have an armada of warships from over the years. Ill keep tabs on the thread in case i need to respond to attacks on friendly space.

But I'm more concerned with the practicality of a 'sanctioned' Modded techs section on the Workshop. If there is one, i cant find it, and there should be if there isnt. I figure i can get more people involved with Modded if i can readily showcase my modded techs. and you seem to have some sort of control over how techs are categorized on the workshop, so yeah. I'll be sending you techs for approval soon. BTW, if you dont play modded, i reccommend you at least copy your game and mod one of them so you can reveiw my designs, as you seem to be a bit selective, at least you require a standard of quality. and Techs coming soon, probably in PM form as there will be dozens of them.

I do play modded, in fact when I work up the motivation I actually make mods. I just like to keep my workshop techs mod-free and DLC-free so that everyone can play with them, so I don't use mods that often. In fact I made a tutorial video on how to get mods to help grow the modded community:

First off: awesome.
Second off: Assault lander? Does that mean it can fly? Or does it need to be landed like from the Leoneis?
Third off: awesome.

Congratulations, Mindless Dominion! Not only have you got the minimum requirement of members to be considered a Kingdom/faction, you now have a banner as well.

So, @Mindlessmrawesome, shall we talk diplomacy? We've talked about this before, so I believe it is time.

Okay, so i tried to PM these to you, but there was no insert file option... so here they are.
Also i know you prefer not to post modded techs, but would my modded techs still carry the MD Designation? Also if so, then submitted for your approval, The SkunkworX's first offering of Modded Technology to the Dominion.
The Better Futures Needle Mach 1 Interceptor is a decades old star-fighter produced by Better Futures. It is a fast and heavily armed formation fighter. it is well shielded but quite fragile if the shields fail, though it's cockpit is very well armored. It is remarkably easy to fly despite is high speed and excellent maneuverability. The Needle Interceptor forms the bulk of Better Futures' Star-fighter fleet and many factions employ the popular star-fighter from corporate navy's who can afford them to the occasional pirate lucky enough to disable one without destroying it.
The Stock Needle Mach 1 Interceptor is Unmodded and flies with standard flight controls.
Needle Interceptor.png
When Mindl3ss founded his SkunkworX experimental engineering facility He obtained early grants from Aceba One Research and Design to employ their newly developed Gravity Pistons on whatever they could get their hands on. The Hawkeye Paramilitary Organization, who had initially sponsored one of the Piston designs Was quick to lend their support to the SkunkworX, and Mindl3ss committed his personal BF Needle Interceptor as the first guinea pig. After much testing, the highly modified Needle was revealed to a joint Better Futures and Hawkeye board. The experimental aircraft exceeded expectations. it was faster and more maneuverable, and despite the complexity of the aircraft, it maintained the Needle's relatively simple control setup. A single Modified Needle was demonstrated to eliminate a full squadron of unmodified needles and landing safely with shields to spare. The VG Needle Mach 2 features a nose and tail assembly that allows them to extend and retract, vastly changing the weight distribution across the space-frame. It's fore-wings extend forward and out and it's hind-wings extend backward and out for extreme maneuverability in exchange for some speed. It boasts cruise missiles as a vast improvement over the Avalanche Missiles of the original. With outstanding success of the demonstration both corporations contracted to mass produce the star-fighter and Better futures reactivated the original Needle line alongside the Mk II. Now the Variable Geometry Needle Interceptor Serves as the core star-fighter for the Mindless Dominion's Fleet and is starting to replace it's predicessor in many major fleets across the galaxy and the venerable fighter continues one of the longest production runs in aeromotive history.
The VG Needle Mach 2 Interceptor Is a Modded Tech and flies with Standard flight controls with the following added controls
1-Extends/Retracts Nose
2-Extends/Retracts Tail
3-Opens/Closes Forewing
4-Opens/Closes Hindwing
5-Extends/Retracts Hindwing Tips
6-Raises/Lowers Attitude Thrusters

Rumor Has it that a Mach 3 Needle is being tested at the Mindl3ss Skinkworx.

And of course I submit the Better Futures Event Horizon Mk II BattleCruisers we showed up in. (Unmodded)

Additionally, I have these.
The BF Hydra III is the current production model of a Modified Better Futures patrol boat Hull design. The Hydra III is a multipurpose Water to Air transport with Exploration, Conservation, and Municipality work in mind. it is an immensely flexible craft with swing and folding wings, outriggers, and tail. it's hull is strong but buoyant, though not so buoyant that it prevents the craft from being an effective reconnaissance submarine. it is very fast on the water's surface and can fly very stably at any altitude. it is lightly armed with a pair of torpedoes and a pair of retractable missile launchers in it's nose. it had many viewing ports across it's skin and makes for an excellent small research vessel. It's versatility makes it a popular choice for diplomats and dignitaries who often visit aquatic worlds. Other duties include Search and rescue, firefighting, Emergency Medical transport, Light boarder Patrol and coast guard, and even a few have found their way into the hands of pirates and with a little modification, they make excellent Pickett star-fighters. The Hydra III is a fully space worthy vessel, but lacks a hyper drive of any kind and must either dock with a Hyper drive sled or be ferried across the void by larger star-ships.
The Hydra III Is a Modded Tech and Operates under standard flight controls with the added controls:
1-Lower/Raise Keel
2-Lower/Raise Hydrofoil
3-Extend/Retract Dorsal Fin
4-Lower/Raise Outboard
5-Open/Close Missile Launchers
0-Extend/Retract Tail
Arrow Left- Extend/Retract Outriggers
Arrow Right- Lower/Raise Landing Pontoons
Arrow Up and Down- Open/Close Swing Wings
Num1 and Num3- Open/Close Bow Plane
R-Cycle Veiwports
MSX BFHydra Mk III.png

Thats all for now
