This is a mini-project I started last night a short while ago, pretty much a bunch of techs with a general focus on industry(mining™ and moving resources™). Introductions are hard so we're going to just jump right in. Assuming we can jump. And that there is a 'we.'


GS Miner(S)

GS Miner Mini.png
The GS Miner Mini is a small, quick, and cheap, while still being relatively effective and efficient, mining unit. With the slight angle provided by the difference in wheel types on the front and back, it can easily get at those annoying short rocks bigger vehicles may have trouble with. It can also carry a good amount of resources for its size, being 40 chunks, allowing it to go on extending mining expeditions without having to return to dump materials every few minutes or so. As with all General Systems® techs, its quite hardy for its size, incorporating the latest in cheap yet effective armour add-ons.

The GS Miner is a medium sized mining vehicle, which combines it's inherent toughness, storage capacity, and enough extra drill heads to work away at a titanium vault, to be able to mine in the offworld for very extended amounts of time. Like the GS Miner Mini, it uses a difference in wheel type to achieve an angle which it can more easily reach low down rocks. It also has a few underside drills for if the craft is accidentally on top of a rock. It also has wheel 'guards,' which can destroy obstructions at awkward angles which would otherwise catch the wheels.

GS Transport(S)

GS Transport Mini.png
The GS Transport Mini is a small, agile transport vehicle, capable of carrying 90 resource chunks off and about wherever they might be needed. It's tough enough to take a few hits thanks to its polygrade armour, although you'd be most inclined to not get into any sticky situations, but stuff happens. It can handle terrain quite well despite its low clearance.

The GS Transport is a medium transport vehicle, designed to handle the rougher terrain of the offworld easily. It manages even the most jagged terrain with ease, albeit a bumpy ride. Its carriage is light yet strong, reinforced with plate armour for taking the occasional bump into a tree. It can carry a fair bit of resources, as expected, and is just slow enough for them to stay in their collectors with no issues.

GS Sct Trnsp Plane.png
The GS Scout/Transport Plane is a cheap and fastª plane, capable of transporting a small amount of resources at high speeds. It can also be used to scout out potential mining locations, enemies, and other interesting features, etc. Although lacking any rotor and/or jet propulsion like a typical plane would have, the new Advanced Reverse Propulsion™ system (ARPs for short) is a sufficient replacement, possibly an alternative.ªª

ªRecorded top speed of 112mph
ªª(I tried using GSO props for this but they're so weak that they could barely lift this thing, which is absolutely tiny. They really, really suck)

GS Industy/Industrial(S)

GS Indus Starter.png
The GS Industry/Industrial Starter is the well known fresh-start selling base, perfect for all your basic selling and intergalactic shipping needs. It can sell anything, and at their best prices too. Although you would need a separate station for scrapping any junk you may come across, it is capable of dealing with component chunks, which are usually worth quite a bit if you can find the right buyer.

GS Indus Standard.png
The GS Industry/Industrial Standard is the typical prospector's all-your-needs selling station, capable of scrapping, refining, and selling resources for great prices. It can deal with any combination of resources, and can do so relatively fast for its size, especially with the inclusion of the Pacemaker,™ which increases productivity by at least 500%.

Could you believe that I had all these techs made by the first post, and that the delay was just because I suck at writing descriptions in good time
GS AMWPD

The GS Automatic Mobile Wireless Purchasing Device is exactly what it sounds like! With this you can purchase anything you fancyª at your heart's content, anytime, anywhere! It's small and fast, yet also tough enough to take a roll down a mountain with no adverse affects. Many reviewers of the vehicle have even called it "cute," to our PR department's continued confusion.

ª This does not include pre-made techs at this time
