    So, with ONESTATE almost ready to launch as my next FULL ON plot (that'll be interest checked once the events going on finish), I figured I'd go ahead and probe for something a bit different.

    Specifically: a JP-organized Freespacer plot focused around vehicles, machinery, and expansion

    Energized Dunes isn't intended to be a very massive plot by any regard. It'd take place a massive, harsh, and generally awful world.

    The perfect Freespacer world.

    Most players will likely be Type 2's, with a Type 3 or two in the mix for more specialized jobs. Most people will be forced to wear suits when in the open atmo, so Automata will be a cool highlight to Energized Dunes as they wouldn't need to worry about their faces getting blasted off by sandstorms. There will be a focus on the really cool things the Freespacers have for ground ops (which is funny, right?) and an emphasis on the group facing off with rogue AI and motherships as they try to colonize the planet for their Mothership.

    The mothership's names and colors will be worked out once we get players, as these two things will have some of an effect on the plot (their craft and friendlies would be sporting that). The planet is one various other ships have tried to master, but these details were lost with the Genocide long ago... so our guys are going into something insane without much detail!

    If interested, post here or hit me on Discord. The choice for a JP structure was made since it tends to have a bit more leniency in flow than an SP thread, as well as the fact that Energized Dunes is intended to be for a smaller group versus my normal plot sizes.

    Due to the context of the plot, this is the first plot I've created that will be Freespacer ONLY. So yeah, if you wanna be a robot IN THE FREE WAY, then please let me know. Once I've got players and they got characters made, we'll be starting it.

    One final thing: the plot will not be 18+

    Freespacers ain't lewd or super gore-capable (for the vast majority). So yeh. First plot I've made that'll be open to everyone I guess.

    Well you can colour me interested.

    Would the crew have access to new stuff like the Deathcrawler/Junkmaster/Partisan, through? Or are they cut off in the northern expanse of genocide refugees?

    Don't even mind finishing off those "worker pod" ideas from a while back, if you think they'll fit. ;I

    The Deathcrawler is intended to be a feature, with the Junkmaster being around (due to competition for the world), and the Partisan + Militant bodies as ones people can use as a base/modify from if they don't feel like making something super nuts-unique. And, obviously, many older Automata would consist of these models.

    The only thing cut-off is once they touch down, due to the atmospheric condition the planet will have (which is why suits will be needed). So until then, the mothership has access to all the ranges of Freespacer technology in the public range.

    Recently, I spoke with @Primitive Polygon about another plot, which has led to the retooling/possible merger of ONESTATE into another plot. That said, rather than two Freespacer plots, I'd be very likely heading up only Energized Dunes. This will help promote more speed, which could potentially allow us to hybrid the plot into more than just the JP format. This is due to the fact that the JP format was my key to allowing me to post in shorter windows, as my ability to post largely depends on my ability to sit down and then BLAM out most of the post/all of it in one go. With more time, this means that I can slow down and even use the SP format, if it was desired.

    So if any dooders out there wanted a more traditional plot placing, Energized is closer to being that. Still lookin' for a few good bots to do some world-digging and scrap-melting on the awful-world of Terminal.
