Part Placers

Suggestion

Posted (edited)

I would love to see some parts that let your bot place things down in such a way that you could create smaller bots inside of your big one, so perhaps you could release 2 or 3 satellites that would just slowly pump out a swarm of little robots. I was thinking it would have to cost something, so that you cant just slap a few pieces on your bot and call it good. What about any fuel or power that it starts with is taken from the bot that made it, and it has a pretty steep cost to make each piece. You could make it so that the block placers run on either fuel or power depending on which you get.

So you would design the smaller bots inside the editor and this part would build them later while flying around? Sounds fun :)

I just dont know yet how to design the smaller bots in the editor. 

Maybe a special editor for them?

Or a drone part that can replicate and release the parts that are attached to it ?

@Micha

That sounds like a fantastic idea! I was thinking just blocks that actually placed other blocks right in front or next to them, which would be much more tedious and limiting, but yours sounds so much better.

A special editor sounds great, but so does a drone part that could replicate parts attached to it, maybe only those attached via a floppy tether or something?
