Engineer thump-a-tron! (Engineering tool.)
« on: May 07, 2015, 05:55:21 pm »
So as an engineer, with having a assist gunner (Engineer with pipe wrench.) working the hull, engines, putting out a fire and fixing a gun can be.. stressful!

Here at Steam-corp we bring the latest aviation tools to you straight from the drawing plank!

A steam powered monstrosity, pistons whirling as steam erupts out, the sound of mindless, droning hammer strikes hitting the hull, denting it into working shape.

The idea is simple, a small steam powered hammer-hitting machine, it doesn't have to be fancy, it's basically a pipe wrench duct taped onto a spinning steam powered cog wheel.

Application is simple! Place down the thump-a-tron, and when you hold (Shift) your remote the thump-a-tron will get to work slamming away!

( IC aside, it's simply a small item you place that, on shift press, will hit away at what ever you place infront of the thump-a-tron, it has limited range and only heals for three hits of the pipe wrench (Each strike matches the speed of the cool down.) and once it's busted, it's got a ability CD of two minutes, this is simply for when all-hands on deck is of important, placed next to the desired part and then breaks after use, it's destruction starts the ability cool down and has a limit of one per ship.)

mhh? Have a hard time picturing what it really does.

Can you place it in a more simple way? Or can someone who gets it translate? :P

So it's like a box you place at the foot of the part that you want it to fix, you hit shift and it hits the part with a hammer, it has three hits in it that repairs the same as the pipe wrench, once you've used it, actived by shift, it then breaks and after a 2 min CD, you can place another.

Engineer power up:
Placeable auto repair tool.
Repair power equal to that of a pipewrench, as Is cool down

Use to cover your back whilst you do other things.
It continually repairs 3 times if it can. (I.e. as soon as cool down is done it repairs again).

Once used, 2 minute cool down before reuse.

Oh. Activate with shift. It's like an RC wrench then.

 :D If I could have an engi place the device on the hull of a spire, they will all be able to fire weapons as the enemy ships move from long range to medium range to dead:o

With the 2 min CD and it only healing like six heal over 8 seconds (Ish) it's more of a safety net then letting you have some one just abuse that, it's meant to be reactive to the ship taking lots of hull damage as you fix the balloon, giving you some precious seconds to get it up and then start on the hull.

Fair enough, but I still really like the idea of the thump-a-tron.

I Salute you.  :)

There have been a lot of suggestions for engineer tools that are totally rubbish and would break the game, but this one isn't actually so bad... I can't imagine I'd swap any of my current tools for it, but it could actually have a place in the game. Nice idea

Because a Pocket B'Elanna would be OP and shaped like a mechanical cat with a sharp rusty spanner...crap now I really want one. I can tell newbies who join: "Rebuild with spanner or I get Pocketlanna out and she'll make you!"

it would be the perfect tool for the pilot (on some ships) and could be stamina powered
