    What do we have here?





    If you have any plans on how your going to use this new feature, we’d love to hear about it in the comments down below. :)

    I suppose a H2 Motor/Generator will be a nice backup power, and a place to use spare H2. But I just don't see a call for it as much. I guess it can power a ship or station when there is no Uranium. Hmm, that might be an interesting challenge...

    Consume forests, harvest swaths of grass and ferment them into eco-friendly ethanol! Build a self-propelled fermentation-plant/ gas station! Maybe find rich oil-wells on the Alien Planet, and finally, have a reason to go there!

    @Gardonian good ideas, but not the route Keen took with it.

    I plan to construct a new weeled transporter to get Ores save and cheap from my mining spots to my bases and missiles > electricity.

    [puts on tinfoil hat]

    I plan on seeing if a wind turbine spun by a rotor generates power based on it simply spinning/being spun...

    And if so, I plan create a blasphemy to Clang by having this h2 engine->power the rotor that -> spins the air turbine that > powers 2 O2 Generators that -> fuels 2 H2 engines....

    and see if in fact an infinite recursion of free energy erupts as a white hole right then and there.

    .. Or if I can get a slow clap from Clang Itself, in the very least.

    There might be a slight problem with that glorious plan... I think the wind turbin can only be placed on a static grid, as far as I understood.

    Well, there is an obvious and reasonable explanation. If a wind-turbine is moved too much, the wind vortex it creates will reverse the polarity of the energy grid, thus creating a temporal loop. We would not want that, now, would we?

    Any news when this new stuff will be available for all?

    Nope, it will be ready when it will be ready, probably not before another public test, though. They don’t give schedules out :)

    I guess in Prague the definition of "start your engines" means "start it once or twice, then let is collect rust for a few weeks"... which I guess IS still grammatically accurate. [/joke];)
