Hmm. A semi-complicated mess of machinery and possibly radioactive fuel rods, lung destroying dust, and needing to apply lube to everything with moving parts.

It seems even such a bright and cheery place like 40k really can be made super dwarfy!

Nah, I'm kidding. Still looks interesting, though I won't trust those damn machines around any soldiers.

For some idea of how tough the "manual labour" component is going to be read this...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breaker_boy

" The miner himself would use a sledgehammer to break up large lumps of coal, then use a rake whose teeth were set two inches apart to collect the larger pieces of coal for shipment to the surface."

" The use of breaker boys began around 1866.For 10 hours a day, six days a week, breaker boys would sit on wooden seats, perched over the chutes and conveyor belts, picking slate and other impurities out of the coal. Breaker boys working on top of chutes or conveyor belts would stop the coal by pushing their boots into the stream of fuel flowing beneath them, briefly pick out the impurities, and then let the coal pass on to the next breaker boy for further processing."

You are going to want to use some Iso-rods to power this thing, else it will chew up a lot of those migrants... some people might find this a solution to the "TOO MANY MIGRANTS" problem as manual workers in the machinery are going to get sick and die eventually. It wont be a fast death either, it will be a slow, painful, drawn out death.


On a happier note, Suds has organised some CLOTHING for your intrepid young hivers. Underhive fashion will be rife.

So basically.... This is the solution I''ve been looking for besides pulling penal legion rushes at outlaws?

At least this way you get something out of them...

Also bones and armor have been toughened so you wont have so many deaths, and more casualties will make it to the hospital before dying.

Any news about archaeotech? Or are you still ironing out the kinks.

nothing going in just yet. I've tweaked underground herbalism plants to be very lucrative tho, so after release you should head down there and try it out.

Suds just got back to me with the fashions so ill put it together and should release tonight or tomorrow.

Just a quick little explanation for creature changes.  Zombies are now contagious, and have a moderate chance to infect your hivers on venom injection.  Carrion bats also carry the zombie plague so be careful when fighting them too.

Various types of megabeasts should now attack your fort, in the form of Spyrers and (perhaps temporarily) the genestealer.  Unfortunately we have not seen these guys functioning in testing so if you get attacked by one please post here!  There are probably a few other minor changes that I don't recall at this moment, such as reworked body plans and the like.

Any chance you could tell us why? I did enjoy the mod and was looking forward to more WH40K Grimdark.

Mostly I think we were frustrated that many things we wanted to implement (and had thought would be possible with the patches coming after we started) turned out to be very awkward to do, and needed very hacky implementations, especially for modelling the large variety of weapons in the Underhive.  This really went against some of the core principles that Abregado and myself had for this mod when we started.

Thanks for the response. Sad to see the mod go to sleep, but I understand the reasoning behind it. Good luck with the next project!
