Ideas, that are too old (too much things changed) or won't be implemented cause of some reasons or if there are obvious better suggestions.

Make spidertron power its equipment grid

Post by wahlencraft »

It's more intuitive: The first time I used the spidertron I thought I experienced a bug, because my equipments wasn't working. Then I realised that I needed to add a reactor. I figured that because it has two reactors in it's crafting recipe, that would be more then enough to also give some power to the equipments.

It's better balanced: I think the spidertron in it's current form needs a slight buff. I feel like the equipment grid is slightly too small, not allowing me to have as many exoskeletons as I would like etc. The portable fusion reactor is very large and takes up most of the space. So by removing the need for one I think we would free up enough space.

I think it would be reasonable if the "built in" reactor would output as much as one portable fusion reactor.

Looks interesting. I'll probably use it if I'll do a modded playtrough. For now I'm only using quality of life mods in my current world. I like to keep it quite vanilla.

For me, this one IS a QOL mod :D The MK3 spidertron, while costly, is fantastic.
