Shipyard Core, would take power.
What would this do?

It would build ships from schematic files, using resources provided in a chest.

Think about the dreadnoughts though! If you want to build a dreadnought with the shpyrd core and it was taking materials from chests, HOW MANY CHESTS WOULD YOU NEED! The sheer number of BLOCKS a dreadnought takes to build is too big to fit in chests. affraid This could of course be solved if an auto-miner or something of the sort were added to the mod. How many of those though would it take, and dow long? I would rather build it with my bare hands! I'm working on a dreadnoght design right now in my singleplayer flat land btw. I will be uploading pics soon in the ship design forum.

the shipyards are for mass production, you have to build it by hand first, I think

there might be an MCedit type thing later though

Perhaps make an input slot in the station core, that builds the ship as resources are added? In other words, it could use instantaneous resources, but when it runs out it will temporarily stop and build again when more are added.

Also, are there going to be multi-block construct reactors? Maybe something like this model Tokamak fusion reactor I made for my ships:

Also for unit, how about kveys? kveykva = lightning in the AL. Haha

Maybe I should arm the Wyrda with a kveykva cannon and go find Alagaësia and give the Riders a ZPM and a dreadnought and watch them do something epic with it.

Then they will see you coming and use the Eldunari to crash your ship.

Not if i have an anti-Eldunarì jammer pod, worth 30,000,000 crowns.

On topic, what is the official unit of power going to be? Seriously, I think we should define how many watts are equal to a kvey, then define the amount of energy that basic electrical components consume, then go from there.

EDIT: If my anti-Eldunarì jamming pod happens to fail, I can just ram the Wyrda into Ellesméra (or Farthen Dur, depending on which is closer) and eject. That's what Wheatley would do.

The Riders have a different home. Plus the elves combined would have enough power to stop your ship, if you count Arya and Firnen.

The Eldunarì are gone. All the elves could not stop a giant ship going at max speed, at least without draining life from the forest, which they would not like to do.

I've found our power generator! Buttered Cat Paradox
Who said I was going to try to destroy the Riders? I'm fine with obliterating the dwarves' greatest city..

Zeonet, I have already suggested that power instead of the ZPM. Find another paradox power generator.
