Day 2:
A jumbled transmission broke through on an old Comms set last night, It said that somewhere in California a scientist got an old shield generator working.
It looks like we aren't the only ones left.
I just pray that it wasn't a recording... not again anyways

Day 3:
A new strain of spambot has appeared, it seems to be smarter than the rest.
It acts like a normal person not like the people from those... COMMERCIALS!!! Thats it.
It has been so long since there has been a television broadcast.
I just hope that we can hold out long enough for the spambots to lose interest in us.

Spoiler Spoiler

If the so called "GOD" created humanity and was perfect, why are we not?! Why are we failures of someone who is supposedly perfect. "GOD" didn't create us he mearly claimed that he did, took the glory, spreaded lies spliting us into the poor and the rich and soon calling our true creator the creator of all evil. The moral is don't trust someone who wont even let you see his face.

Day 4: MEANWHILE, OVER IN A DIFFERENT LAND.....
I was logging onto my MineOS PC from Computercraft when suddenly this strange video appeared. It appeared to be selling Kitchens, Kitchenware, and all that stuff. I immediately blocked that IP on my computer. Then suddenly A WILD SPAMBOT WITH A MINING LASER APPEARED! Using Flans Guns to defend my base, be back in a moment. T-10a out.

Day 5: At GregTower (Headquarter of GregTech Intergalactical)

-- BEGIN TRANSMISSION TO REMAINING OUTPOSTS --

Hello, Robots

I am giving you the Authentification to use our Spaceships.
Destroy that Spambotarmy, which is now slowly approaching at the GregTower.

Our local Defencesystems are working great, but that Army is just too huge for us.
Let all the other Nations sink in these Spambots. We dont need them anymore.

And then we will destroy the remaining Bots and TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!
Muahahahahahaha!!! Muahahahahahaha!!!

I don't say, your "insert whatever here" is bad, I'm only showing possibilities for making it better.

GregTech Website

Patreon really helps me out, so if you consider funding the development of GT, so I might be able to do it full time, why not?

GregTech 6, the Main Thread, Bug Reports go here too.

I'm also reachable on #gt-dev on irc.esper.net, if you don't want to make a Forum account to contact me, for example. ;)
(I'm there almost every day, but only when I'm at my own computer, and yes you can drop bugs there too)

Everyones blaming me for the spam bot apocalypse, When I didn't create them.
The spam bots are destroying the world above me, and I don't like this one bit.
My MinecraftGhast's and MinecraftZombieman are destroying any Spambots coming through the portals,
but I fear that we are being over run by MinecraftZombie MinecraftSkeleton (dead people).
Luckily I have Equivalent Exchange 2 to condense them into :Rubber: (Orbs).
I will just have to shut down the portals and wait this out.

Day XV: Location: Somewhere in an underground base, one teleporter second away from the IC Headquarters

--BEGIN OF TRANSMISSION--

We had to give up the IC HQ, but luckily I could save the whole IC source code on one harddrive and now im taking it with me wherever i go...

To all survivors: Don't enter the radioactive fallout zone around the IC HQ, we had to activate our selfdestruction program... think 4 stacks of nukes were enough for those frikkin' spambots.

If there is anyone out there, who has got a working teleporter system, please tell me, the air-refresher aren't working long anymore.

So please... send me the coordinates of your teleporter...

Day 16: Outpost #7 has fallen to the spambots! Retreating to the Gregtech Intergalactical HQ for a final defense.
If that doesn't work, I'll have to attempt to summon the almighty dragon known only as 'Albaka'. Only very few have survived an attack from Albaka, and very few have managed to defeat him from that very few. *massive explosion in background from nuke* I'll be going now, seeya.

Day 17: Somewhere in a small underground bunker.

-- BEGINNING OF TRANSMISSION --

Did I FINALLY get this transmitter working?!?! I've been trying ever since this all started. Thankfully I had already built an underground bunker with a small nuclear reactor to run my computers. I've got enough power to run for quite a while, and also have enough food. I can't go outside, far too much radiation from nuclear explosions and remaining spambots. In any case, did I hear word of the IC2 source being saved? I can offer my services to write/rewrite portions of it, perhaps using it as a weapon against the bots. Let me know if I can be of any assistance, until then I will remain hidden here.

-- END OF TRANSMISSION --
Lesson 1: Watch over your crops....

Spoiler Spoiler


In my world, I downloaded the new IC2 version, got up a whole bunch of crossbreeders going, and thought to myself "This is going to take a while. Wasn't there an abandoned mineshaft not far from my workshop?" So I get my tools together, charge into the mineshaft, suffer many close shaves, stayed a bit longer than is probably healthy, but emerge from the experience all the wiser (literally, I gained several levels), and with oodles of melon and pumpkins seeds to boot.

And come home to find out that weeds have destroyed my entire farm. :cursing:
