[Suggestion] Throwable Machines

  • OK: so, in short; Put machines in toolbox, charge beforehand, and when you want to use it, simply hold it in your hand, hold right click to charge up the throw, and release and POOF! Instant Macerator. Want to pick it back up? right click with the toolbox! Since we already have (useless) Toolboxes, this would be a good way to give use to toolboxes; craft it with a machine and Energy Crystal, charge it up, and you have a machine that can be used on the go.
    Throwing the machine out would turn it into an entity that's basically a machine in entity form. There is no real reason that this would not be possible (Hard, but not impossible).

  • A dispenser, basically... Pack it up, with a heavy load coming thru, erecting your machine where-ever you feel like...

    It's a nice concept, but I don't think it balances well against the wrench. Although you could add a very low (1%) loss chance to it...

    Would anyone like to try a Slowpoke Tail?! Only 1 Million Yen!


    this isn't about arrogance or ego, I have a block that I put a lot of freaking work into

    Every Mod Author, in existence. And yet, you STILL say otherwise.

  • The idea is that you would take it on a long mining trip and process ores on-the-go.
    But yeah, I have been playing TF2 lately. saaaay... My Steam name is ArcticWinterZzZ, BTW.
    In any case, Throwable machines would make for a really cool addon, don't you think, mr Fallenbeast?

  • I appreciate the idea of giving the toolbox more use, I just don't think this would be the right way to go about it (unless of course we get a sound clip of "erectin' a macerator!" to go with).

    Is the answer to this question no?


    Hey don't take it so hard. Ignorance is part of this generation it seems. -the wise words of XFmax-o-l

  • Le balance option:
    It could be used if you right click a machine with a wrench and a toolbox in your inventory, as a nerf. Uses the wrenches durability too!

  • Well, you can put an empty Box into it, and when you need to put your Tools away, then just triple-rightclick the Compartment with an empty Hand, to put your Toolbar into it.

  • A Gravi gun can throw a lit nuke far enough to not harm it's owner.

    TNT Nuke Cannon + Portal gun to above Enemies Base

  • We need throwable grenade..

    That's called "Alumentum". Not that efficient on mobs, but will oneshot you if you launch it on your feets ^^

    Soon with Molten Salt Reactors, right ? :D
