P.I.C.K.ing more blocks at once

Postby snake920 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 5:01 am

Upgrade the pick to mine more blocks at once like two or four blocks. Or do a wide spread pick.... Different p.i.c.k.s for a different kind of mining situation whether u want 4x4 tunnel or just want to level a room. I would like to see a 2x3 pick as that's all my rooms and tunnels.

Maby a upgrade for the P.I.C.K that allows you to change the size. This aslo encourages other suit and tool upgrades.

Mods to existing equipment like this would be awesome to have. For example, a mod to increase the efficiency of the jetpack's thrusters that way you dont have to use as much oxygen. Another good one would be a Rebreather to extend the airsupply of your tanks, would be expensive and rely on battery power but I think it would be doable.

I'm definitely on board with this. Would be nice if you could toggle through different configurations as needed. Additionally it would be nice to have an adjustment for speed as well. You spend a lot of materials for the best pick but in my opinion its still just not fast enough on big projects.

Maybe a construction P.I.C.K. that picks up lower density blocks extremely fast but mineral blocks slower. If you made one to mine a 2x3 it would have to take 3x longer to balance it but that would be fair.

Just thought a laser pick that instead picks it destroys the blocks.... A upgrade that requires the B button to switch on with.

A laser pick could also be used as a weapon once mobs are put in.

The Pick already basically is a Laser that activates when you point it at a valid target isn't it ? I do think however it should act like a dagger would. A semi close range weapon that damages armor by trying to reclaim it and maybe repulse an enemy when you try to place at them. The damage to the armor could cause almost immediate damage to the point where the repairs skip past the 1 titanium to repair and jump straight to the endurium and Ghost cores to repair level.

Lump and I were talking about it and thought maybe also it drains your batteries and oxygen or maybe causes an oxygen leak so you need to repair quickly before it runs out. While draining the enemy batteries it could refill yours.

Id like to see the PICK be able to continuously lay blocks as long as you hold the trigger (as long as you have available space). For large builds, people will be looking at potential carpel tunnel if they have to pull the trigger relentlessly to place blocks.
