Handiwork Kits

CraftKits are mobile workstations. They mount onto one of your ship's auxiliary hardpoints and can then be rolled around on flat, solid terrain after your ship has landed. They unfold to reveal a number of solidly-attached tools and a large mass of parts. The parts you get depend on the kit you purchase.

PartKits are packages filled to the brim with tons and tons of… well, parts. They require you to use the workstation from another CraftKit or Mobile Workstation in order to use, but contain twice the materials for less than twice the cost.

When returning to HQ, you get to choose whether or not we confiscate your creations when you arrive back at base and restock the kit.

Restocking craftkits costs 1 credit; restocking parts kits costs 2 credits. Low tier kits can make items with an estimated value of 0 to 10 creds. High tier kits can make items with an estimated value of 10 to 20 creds.

Each item in this list uses one of your ship's auxiliary hardpoints.

1 cred - Mobile Workstation

Just want the workstation, and don't want any of the other ridiculous stuff that goes along with it? Plan to scavenge from your environment? Throw stuff together on the fly? Be a true MacGyver? We can help with that. In fact, we encourage intelligent manufacturing and cleverness. This workstation costs only a single cred, mounts to one of your ship's auxiliary hardpoints, and can go pretty much wherever you need it to. And in case it wasn't clear - it doesn't come with parts.

Infantry Tier Kits

3 creds - Infantry Tier Auxiliary Craftkit

You too? Fine. With this kit, you can build a set of rockets and weld them to your ass. You can build rotary engines and stick your helmet onto it. You could even craft a lawnmower in space. Why? How the hell do I know. I don't know why you morons do half the things you do. All you need to know is that this kit is the way to make your dreams come true - if you have some very, very low dreams generally involving weak shields and thrusters. As with all kits, you get to decide whether you want your inventions kept or thrown away at the end of the mission. Uses one of your ship's auxiliary mounts.

3 creds - Infantry Tier Robotics Craftkit

It's 3152. Inventors got phased out centuries ago, but it seems you're behind the times. You prefer to call yourself "oldschool" while sitting in the underdeck of your mother's spaceship eating chicken and watching holovision like the fat, unemployed loser that you are. Now that you're with Tartarus, it's no surprise you want to do the same. I suppose you could make a mechanical wheelchair with legs out of these things, or perhaps some really small robots to follow you around, or maybe some sort of mechanical arm to scratch that spot on your back you're too lazy to reach. You'll think of something. As with all kits, you get to decide whether you want your inventions kept or thrown away at the end of the mission. Uses one of your ship's auxiliary mounts.

3 creds - Infantry Tier Structural Craftkit

The riot shield isn't enough for you. Maybe you want to be absolutely sure you can board a door shut, or maybe you just think you'd look prettier with a fancy metal bonnet. I'm not going to judge you. I'll leave that task to your enemies. If you want to build something that needs to be sturdy - something that needs to last - something that needs to look hideously ugly while fulfilling a utilitarian purpose - this is the kit you want. As with all kits, you get to decide whether you want your inventions kept or thrown away at the end of the mission. Uses one of your ship's auxiliary mounts.

3 creds - Infantry Tier Weapons Craftkit

You're one of those tinfoil hat guys, right? You don't want to purchase weapons directly from the man, because you're sticking it to the man. Now you can stick it to the man even harder by buying this kit from the man. It'll let you build most of the stuff you can purchase from the armory, complete with your own adjustments. Alternatively, you could use it to upgrade the crappy gear we send you out there with - but be aware that your inventions will probably get confiscated unless you decide to keep them. As with all kits, you get to decide whether you want your inventions kept or thrown away at the end of the mission. Uses one of your ship's auxiliary mounts.

4 creds - Infantry Tier Auxiliary Partkit

Thrusters on your ass just wasn't enough, was it? You want to put thrusters on your friend's ass too? This is the kit you'll need for it, and it'll cost you four shiny creds. Granted, they probably aren't shiny. They're probably any combination of charred, scorched, melted, burned, acid-eaten, liquefied, rotting and otherwise disintegrating, because I've seen how you build. With this kit you can build twice as much. You'll probably have a lot of fun with it, provided you don't get yourself killed again. Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.

4 creds - Infantry Tier Robotics Partkit

As an amateur roboticist, you've decided that a mechanical alarm clock and shampoo dispenser weren't enough, and you need to make something to feed you cereal as well. That's fine. We have plenty more kits where that last one came from. With this kit you can make up to four mechanical creations, provided you don't fuck something up along the way. It might not get you a lot of views on HoloTube, but it'll satisfy that inventor's itch we know you have. Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.

4 creds - Infantry Tier Structural Partkit

What the hell do you want this for? Flying buttresses for your bunk? Goat horns for your squad's helmets? The smaller kit obviously isn't good enough for you, so if you're buying this you must have something big in mind. And speaking of "big", if I see one more person craft a giant phallus while they're on a mission, I'll electrocute them in their suits. That got old well over a hundred years ago, and I'm sick of it. Build something useful like a barrier, a trapdoor, or menacing steel spikes. Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.

4 creds - Infantry Tier Weapons Partkit

Ah, you're the conservative type. Welcome. We have a wide selection of parts for you to choose from to make the most pathetic ship-based weapons you can think of - or the very best infantry weapons you can imagine. You should probably try for the latter, because a peashooter mounted to your CASKET isn't going to kill anyone, although they might die of laughter. If you want a lot of guns in a short period of time, this is probably the kit you want for the job. Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.

Low Tier Kits

Low Tier items have a value range of 0 creds to 10 creds. They're generally much easier to craft than higher tier items.

5 creds - Low Tier Weapons CraftKit

Are the weapons we have "too mainstream"? Does the mere thought of killing someone in such a dull and uninteresting manner make your blood boil?

Contains the materials to craft up to two low-tier weapons. As with all CraftKits, you get to choose whether or not we confiscate your creations when you arrive back at base and restock the kit. Uses one of your ship's auxiliary mounts.

With this kit you have all the materials to build the robotic creations of your dreams and attach it to your ship. Arms? Check, easy. Legs? Sure, you can do that. Why not?

You're certainly not limited by the excessive amount of engines and servomotors we include here. Contains the materials to craft up to two robotic items.

Contains all the materials and tools you need to throw together up to two creations.

8 creds - Low Tier Weapons PartKit

Just like the regular Low Tier kit, except now you have the materials to build twice as much. Maybe two weapons wasn't enough for you, or maybe you're trying to equip the rest of your squad because you're once again the ONLY intelligent member. That's understandable. I often feel like I'm the only intelligent one around here too. This is essentially like buying yourself an extra auxiliary hardpoint and shoving a second Low Tier Weapons Kit on it. Enjoy your excess of weaponry. Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.

Just like the regular Low Tier kit, except now you have the materials to build twice as much. Yeah, you're badass, you have that armor, you built wings, you crafted a long blade for the front. Now add spikes! Made a blade? Add spikes! Baby carriage? Spikes! Spikes! SPIKES! Because we know that's all you're going to use this for. What's the fun of a bundle of parts if you can't have blades inside blades inside blades inside blades? Or I suppose you could do something actually intelligent, but that's too oldschool for you.

Like all PartKits, this doesn't contain a mobile workstation and needs the use of yours or someone else's CraftKit or Mobile Workstation.
