New Train wagons and boats

Post by GDRRiley » Tue Oct 20, 2015 11:56 pm

I would love to see 3 new train wagons added on: a gun bed, a tanker, and a power wagon to move power long distances. For boats I would like to see: a little explorer boat, ferries; item, train, power and gun boats. 1 last thing a amphibious tank .I fell that all of them would help to move items, power around and protect areas better.

Tankers at least are already planned, it comes along with the fluid expansion (Possibly in 0.13) that also includes being able to use fluids as fuel.

Fluids as fuel?

I must've missed that part. Awesome :) I'm now looking forward to this feature even more.

*to this update :D
and I would like to see a power wagon, It would be an interesting way to give power to outposts. As for the amphibious vehicle, I think that it and a tanker should be the only boats in the game, for less redundancy (and simplicity)

So, if we get an amphibious vehicle (YESSS)... what about amphibious biters?

Would be needed as is. I constantly stumble upon small pieces of land off-shore full of biters and nests that're subsequently completely harmless.
