[MOD 0.12.x] Deathcycles - Drive Fast, Die Often

Post by GopherAtl »

Behold, placeholder art!

Image
Deathcycles are the perfect vehicle for those times when you need to get across your factory right now or die trying. They are fast but fragile. Very fuel efficient, but without any cargo space. Also, they have a shotgun, because their one true enemy is rocks and trees.

Drive carefully - ah, who'm I kidding, you'll blow up anyway. Just carry spares.


Plans
  • Find some talented person to make a proper motorcycle model.
  • improve handling with some custom control code
  • add shadows
  • add electric version - Save fuel, which the regular ones don't need much of anyway, by crafting with much more expensive parts! What could possibly go wrong?
  • add recipes and technologies and other things that sensible mods should have.
Download v0.0.1
My Mods:
Nixie Tubes - numeric displays for your circuit networks!
Logistic Combinators - use logistics values in circuit logic! -
Autowire - automate red/green wire connections

whoops. Just realized the .zip was referencing an icon from my experimental mod's graphics dir. fixed the file in-place, apologies to those who tried it and got the borked version that wouldn't load.

:update:

been testing in MP with Narc, they work nicely, other than the steering-assist being twitchy for some reason. These things are so much fun ^_^

I was just about to reply the same thing -- they're intense!

You are no less than the 5th person to volunteer YuokiTani's name XD I may well ask him at some point - I have seen his work, and it is quite high-quality - just thought I'd see who might step forward of their own accord first.

Is anything happening with this mod?

Is it even enabled? What do I have to invent to be able to build these beasts?

GopherAtl's been stolen away from us by other games, but in the meantime if you want to try this WIP mod, you need to give it to yourself by console:

Code: Select all

/c game.local_player.insert{name="deathcycle", count=10}
Words of advice: don't bother putting in more than one unit of fuel (they last forever), and definitely be prepared to give yourself more of them.

I guess the most difficult thing when it comes to creating that model for the deathcycle is the player model on it. So if i where to volunteer then i would most likely go for some kind of model that is inspired by the tron bike 2nd generation :)!

Unless of course we where able to get that player model from Albert :D!

Noticed the told change in FFF #111 so il continue to use my signature ^_^
Thanks for listening to our suggestions, devs :D!
I would jump of joy if we could specify which tiles spawned in a surfaces

Nuclear powered bikes anyone?
What can possibly go wrong?
