Modular Locomotives

Post by Kyos »

Well I was going to do a point by point breakdown of the idea. But apparently its already been suggested here. Wonderful concept by the way.

Anyho: Train Engine modifications: Applicable to the sides, front or top of the train. With some mixing and matching as the situation warrants.
Terrible conceptual illustrations of biter deterrents below:

Nice. Really good drawings. :)

Instead of adding only armor/weapons (*) , I would like to have provisional power supply (just enough to place two or thre roboports), an inbuilt roboport (**), wagons as provider/requester chests (as you like) and a track builder like ... =14&t=4287.

(*) there was this "fight-train-" and "artillery train-" idea a year ago, look for example here, which is I think also a very good article about the uses and the possible expansions of trains: ... f=6&t=1512
- the artillery train is mentioned on page 4, and btw. Kovarex mentioned here also a personal teleport building

(**) to place roboports and basic defense structures via blueprint, ... =32&t=4232
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
