A new robotic civilization?

#1 2019-07-27 13:44:17
Hello guys!

I have a little idea to present here...
The AncientBots!

Here are some arts for its buildings.
(New)


(8/1)


(Old)


(7/28)



Remarks for buildings:

• The Ark is the landing craft of the AncientBots. Houses 5 people with little ability to supply food and water. Provides 5 power, and it can build some basic vehicles for this civilization (as every civilization needed).

• Guild is a civic centre.

• Printing pod provides population; as well, it can build a wider range of vehicles.

• Repair Bay and Parts & Services are ‘medical’ facility for them.

• Microfarm grows fuelcrop only, not food. Food must be obtained from Carbohydrates Extractor, consuming fuelcrops.

• Shipping Station gives both export and import function, but does not give tourists unlike its upgrade Shuttle Dock.

• Ancient Archives converts alien relics from Relic Recovery & Protection Agency into ancient instructions, which is a widely used consumable for mid-to-late stage for this civilization.

• Commerence Hub allows online trade.

• Data Bank is a internet utility. To know more about internet utilities please refer to this post for reference: https://www.ape-apps.com/viewpage.php?p=31612

• Molecular Mineral Refinery and Antimatter Mineral Enrichment can turn ore into more ore, along with minerals.



Remarks concerning AncientBots:

• How food and water are consumed by them? Just imagine they have a biochemical reactor that needs food and water to keep running. And all AncientBots has a brain, so food and water is still needed by them.

• Do you know they also drink rum as ‘entertainment’? These alcohol fuel will give them refreshments as well power ’em up - boom. Optimized status.

• AncientBots are the only civilization left who know to make artifects from the raws. So they have the Artifect Foundry.

Looks promising
Have you thought about making some of the image files? You can get information on how to do it here

Thanks @cry8wolf9 (^ω^)
Actually I have (very) poor computer drawing skills 😶 (and seems needs practise). So I think I’ll prefer hand-drawing presentation instead.

I love those drawings, as well as the ideas for a few buildings! To get along with the idea by Ansom, maybe rework a little to have simpler, cubic designs (of course keeping differences)
You know you could get one of those drawing tablets that connect to the computer, I'm sure you can get used to it fairly quickly.

Rework under process.

Awesome! Someone will have to make the computer files though. Edit: I mean if the idea is adopted by Bast.
You can also work out some stats like resource cost, production/consumption and some techs needed.

Dudes, I've just updated new hand-drawing building artworks

Did you draw those yourself? That’s honestly amazing, as well as an amazing idea, someone give this person an award or something.

Nice drawings, I wish I had time to do stuff like that. All I can come up with is written ideas, and those take me hours to write as it is.

Just an idea, it may or may not help. you could scan that picture and open it via inkscape. Then you could change the color of the lines to a yellow color(or another bright color) and trace them with black lines using the line and pencil tools, and then use the fine eraser tool over the yellow tinted lines. Then you can fill the spaces in between with appropriate colors using the filler tool. Shouldn't be any real need to redraw all of them on the computer from scratch, just a few hours of image editing magic.

Once you've done this to all of the images, then you can crop each image into it's oown file and then stretch or compress each of them to fit into the tile based sizes that my colony requires buildings to be. I can't remember the dimensions, but there's a thread at the top of the idea forum called "artists, submit your drawings."(something like that) that has the dimension requirements.

There may even be a faster way of doing this, but if you are bad a drawing things on computer from scratch, then this could be a good way around it.

Instead of consuming food and water, when I've had ideas for robot civilizations, I thought they could "eat" microchips as food (since they have chip in the name :P) and drink oil instead of water. Obviously that would require slightly different buildings, but it's just an idea.
