What to do with the Behemoth?

Postby Consumer » Fri Mar 23, 2018 5:35 pm

Finally Some options for the Behemoth.

  • Have someone else fix it. This will cost 20 million credits.
  • Fix it yourselves. this will cost 4,136,400 credits.
  • Take the Behemoth to Titan Robotics. Cost is Free...?
  • Sell the Behemoth, for 4.2 million Credits.

Note: This is to just bring the Behemoth up to base statistics.

A Nuclear Reactor will still need to be purchased.

  • New Reactor is 5 million Credits for 12 more years.
  • Northern Gun will retrofit the Reactor to a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell for free. These Cells would cost 120k credits and last 4 months. (NG will buy back the emptied cells for 18,000 credits each.)

Pleas vote for one of the repair options and one of the reactor options. I don't think I can create multiple polls within a thread so this is the best I can offer. Poll will be up for 3 weeks, unless I have votes from the whole team before hand.

Voted.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight that counts, but rather the size of the fight in the dog.

I would like to see people's arguments for why the team should spend 4+ million to bring the Behemoth up to spec, instead of having it done for free.

Let me present my reasoning. I have confirmed all of this with Consumer.

1. If the team is spending our down time repairing the Behemoth, that is pretty much ALL we are doing. It is a huge undertaking and not something Mechanic can do on his own.
2. Having Titan rebuild it gets us a repaired, tested machine. Any blown rolls while a team member is doing repairs can causes glitches that will set things back.
3. We don't have the facilities to properly repair the Behemoth, so many repair rolls will be at significant minuses. This thing is huge. We don't even have anywhere to keep it out of the weather while we work on it.
4. The 4+ million spent, will only get the Behemoth back to factory spec. It will not pay for the customization we want done. I would rather that the money saved be used to configure the Behemoth to our needs. Customization will take even more time and money.
5. This will take at least 2 months of everyone's downtime, probably more. So, no studying magic or learning skills during that time.


Another note. I was reading up on Solid Oxide. It won't work in the Behemoth. "Note: Nuclear is still the default power system, and some of the biggest, heaviest robots like the Behemoth and Grizzly must use nuclear power. The same is true of most ships." NG 1, pg 101
