Industrial Engineering: Industrial Tank

  • With Redpower frames, Imma thinking death tank! Could I use deployers on a frame driven tank to fire sticky dynamite and mining lasers? MinecraftSkeleton

    2. Go away, you creeper wierdo!
    3. What ever, I'll just go around.
    4. Hup, over their heads I go!
    5. Okay Mister living grenade, I'm going to knock you into those skeletons, and I'll follow through with a nano saber. Understood? FOR THE ALMIGHTLY DRAGON LORD!

  • Mininglasers? Yes! Sticky Dynamite? Try it yourself, its not so hard to get it.

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

  • X( If I could figure out how to use frames, I'd build this for you guys...

  • hmm... I wonder if the laser's setting is per-laser or a global based on the player. Time to get 2 lasers and check :)

    Since 1.2.3 per Laser

  • Want flying fortress eliminating whole chunks by using 256 LongRange mininglasers! Now!

    add it to that ultimate frame challenge! DOOO IIIIIITTTT! :D

    true balance is impossible in video games the best one can hope for is to make it really hard to guess which of 2 choices are better.
    and remember kids "NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF JOKES!"

  • Starting feasibility studies, gathering frames, crafted a pile of dynamite. BRB. :thumbsup:

  • 256 long range? how to do that? is that default or is it config setting? ill check i guess. D: but anyway, this is a REALLY cool idea... the whole.. world destroyer with mining lasers. didnt know the lasers worked wit deployers... *evil grin*

    IM A n00b AND I KNOW IT!

    He meant 256 Mining Lasers set to the Long-Range mode.(1 Chunk = 16*16 blocks = 256)


    OT- Designing this thing is harder than i expected. :S

    Direwolf made a Movement-Drive in his Framequarry. Since about Episode 30 or so.

  • Oh man, I can just imagine it now. A 500 meter long airship, armed to the teeth with deployers containing mining lasers and dynamite. It could use a Frames-based inchworm drive to move itself, have fighter bays to launch Zeppelin-mod enabled fightercraft, and even be self sufficient to feed and maintain its staff with internal farms and solar power.


    I now know what I need to build after all my surface facilities are done!

    Obsession with Automation is a good thing, right?

  • Funny thing is, I've actually done this.
    I know this thread is old, but it still seems relevant.
    I made this with width, not length, in mind as I was think about the mining usage.
    Unfortunately it doesn't work well, as the normal shots leave holes and the explosive shots aren't powerful enough to clear an area bug enough for it to go through.
    Scatter would work, but it breaks the deployers for some reason. probably a bug.
    It is an eight deployer gun, as can be seen in the attachment, and has a recharging system.
    maybes we could make better ones when we can put pipes inside frames.
    The whole thing can be moved by frame motors, too.
    P.s. first time attaching images, so I did it as an attachment

  • Cool! Never managed to figure out frames myself, but good job. :) Not very pretty, but hey, it works.
