In this post I will showcase the recent 3D models and textures I made along with some explanations of what they will do in game.
Starting with the Tesla battery…
The original tesla battery modules are while, but I really like how that aged red metal worked out so I ended up leaving it this way. The player will connect the solar array to it and draw power from it for other equipment. Some maintenance will be required like changing a blown fuse etc.
Next up we have the Moxie.
Moxie is a module that produces O2. Developed by NASA and currently tested on Mars (1:100 scale mounted on a rover), the unit will require care as it has a lot of components that need to be looked after. The components you see inside are based hugely on the actual NASA design.
Water Vapor Adsorption Reactor (WAVAR).
This unit is simpler in design (again, this is the actual design in real life). It consists of a filter, a fan, zeolite bed and a condenser. Just like the Moxie, it requires power to function and will need repairs form time to time.
A very important component is the crane. The model is …waitforit… DOGErpillar. Not much to say about it apart from the fact that it will be mounted on the trailer and will be used to move equipment around. The picture shows the unit getting dusty over time (applies to all equipment).
Placing and powering the Sat. Dish module will provide the player with a low orbit satellite image based map.
The solar array is pretty self explanatory. It will need to be cleaned regularly in order for it to work on full capacity.
Portable life support system (PLSS) a.k.a “The backpack” is the player’s best friend when it comes to surviving on Mars. Provides O2 and heat. Its fitted with a CO2 scrubber to maintain breathable air inside the pressurized suit.
Last, but not least – The GME trading view TV
Yes, this is more like an Easter egg, but it will serve as a reminder of what happened the last few days – “Dumb money” outsmarting “Smart money”. Truly epic! That’s why the TV will be in the game as a tribute to that moment!
Let’s not forget that if we unite, we are stronger than the biggest institutions or organizations!
