Construct: Screw pump

Exploration: Send one drone to scout the desert red son lives in, and the other two to try to harvest the artifact (if i cannot do this then they can scan the biomechanical insectoids)
Research: Crossbow Attachment

If there is still a spot left, can I join?

Name: Scraps
Biome: Mountains


#105

Absolutely. In fact, it is the last slot.
Mountains arenโ€™t on the original list of start locations, but I can make them work.
Edit: as youโ€™ll be starting late, Iโ€™ll give you 18 free research points to spend and a spare drill.

Ooooh, oopsโ€ฆ
I donโ€™t know where I got mountains fromโ€ฆ

Could you change it to Grassland?
Thanks


(Immortal Dragon) #107

So sorry about leaving this so late. :confounded:

Construct: None.

Action: Repair Screw Pumps and Steam Engines as much as possible.

Research: Range Upgrade

I regret not getting this out sooner. But here we are.

ROUND 13

No more players can join the game via air drop now, as the mother AI has โ€˜diedโ€™
Three NPCs have been dropped across the planet.
AI cores will be available to construct on round 15.
A player wishing to join can take control of an NPC or player built AI core.


Null(@Agenttine):

Construct Refinery(5):
With iron ore starting to build up, you should start making it into plates and bars.
The immediate order is to build a refinery. Construction goes very well as the refinery is built
off the side of the iron belt, with an inserter taking the available iron and processing it in the refinery.

Research Agriculture(5)

(Explorer)Search for other drones(2):
You try to find others on this lonely planet. Taking your drone far out west, you find nobody. You find a river in the grasslands on your travel, and you are left to just observe the nature around you, the spring breeze, the lush enviroment, the chirping birdsโ€ฆ Disguisting. You can almost swear you hear some kind of engine noise nearby, and you think detect some kind smoke or soot coming from further west.

(Navigator)Check if copper can be scavenged(6):
These copper tubes, after ananysis, seem perfect for mining. You donโ€™t even have to move the drill piece to get a large amount of ore. It appears that, although recently volcanic, this section has cooled to safety.
With this, you start to question if there is some form of lava nearby this location.

Blort(@Evolution4Weak):

Construct Refinery(3):
You try to get another refinery running for the factory, to get production up.
The plans could be better, but it works and doesnโ€™t do anything wrong.
And so it is set to process copper as iron is being handled.

Scan for other drones(4):
You think you landed west most of anyone, so think that east is the way to travel.
Going out this way you come across a river in the open plains. You spot a drone on the horizon.
This drone looks similar to your kind of drone, not some weird ancient tech.
You take evasive maneuvers to make sure it does not see you.
It seem to look around at the wild life and seems to find little, before it moves away to the east.

Scrap the iron drill:
Scrapping the drill is an easy task, only taking a single day to pick up a disassemble.
You get a full return on your investment as you get 5k iron bars and 1k copper bars back.

Investigate the glaciers(4):
You look to the strange tower, something you have never seen before.
As you approach, you see thorankiโ€™s bots, guarded by his drones, hauling out the corpse of one of the aliens youโ€™ve seen before. You decide to not question it for now and investigate the tower itself. Around the tower you see strange drones hovering around. The drones are made of black metal, with an engine-like structure on the bottom with an odd blue glow, they have two attachments on the side that resembles guns, and they have a single large glowing blue eye on them.
They quickly notice your presence near the tower and attempt to attack you. Firing blue rings of plasma from their guns, you barely make it out before they stop chasing you and return to their tower.

Construct Steam Engine(4):
Third times the charm! You finally manage to make a steam engine that works like it is supposed to.
As you turn it on, the machines that were previously shut off to save power turn on as if you werenโ€™t having a power crisis.
Atleast you have ten kilo-flux spare.

Investigate Glaciers(3):
Remembering when you were in space, you remembered that there are glaciers on the poles of the planet.
You decide you should find these walls of ice, specifically the south one as it is closer.
You travel exetremely far south to find nothing, as it is beyond your reach.
After this you send your drone south east to see if there is a peninsula or something.
Over the horizon, an enormous spire of rock and smoke rises from the sea.
Quickly looking over all data logs, this is olympus mons. The largest volcano in the solar system.
From what your log say it was long inactive. Something has reignited this natural wonder.
Your drones starts running out of power and needs to return. Next time.

Scraps(@QuantumCrab)

You were in the process of being made up the mother AI along with three others for a second batch of AI.
But as power went low, you and them were canceled. The power went out and you thought you were dead.
Then, something happened, a power surge, felt from the planet below. You were told not to ask about it.
That was almost a year ago at this point and the power is running low again. But this time, you and the others get a full launch onto the planet. You go first, send of from the mother AI, you aim your landing towards the rolling grasslands.
You crash land into a shallow lake. Before you are allowed access to full control, an automatic survival system is activated.
The system includes; A supply of resources, a reconnaissance drone, a steam engine, and a water pump straight into the lake.

Thoranki(@Svrangite):

Construct Screw Pump(3):
To increase steam engine potential further, you attempt to construct a screw pump.
The pump is built into the ice to collect it for water.
Though more inefficient than just collecting water on its own, you donโ€™t have that luxury.

Investigate the desert(4):
You look into red suns desert to see what is there.
Within it you see his entire factory, working to collect resources.
You go to the farther north to see a mountain range in the distance.
This mountain is out of your range. From what you can see red sun has at least on drill on the base of the mountain, mining coal. You think you see something similar to the aliens youโ€™ve seen in the caverns, prowling around the a eastern section of mountain base, away from where it could harm something. The desert itself is much richer in iron than you expected, maybe you could get some out of it for yourself.

Scan insectoids(2 + 1):
After breifly thinking about sending the drones to dislodge the artifact, you realize that the artifact would require very heavy machining. So you go with the next best thing, alien corpses! You manage to get a lone construction bot to drag a corpse out, where it is then followed by your drones for safety. Once it is returned to your possession, you immediately use all your scanning equipment. You arenโ€™t able to match its biological parts to any lifeforms of terran origin. The machine part seems to be made of recycled and cannibalized pieces of other aliens used over and over again, likely because of living sealed in a cave. The actual origin of this metal looks like technology you know, but incredibly worn and aged. Oddly, the corpse seems to rot extremely slowly.

Welcome to the game! Iโ€™m going to put you on the waiting list for now.

P. S. In this game mars is terraformed to have life in abundance.
