Biter Power

Generate electricity by placing biters on treadmills. Biters can be caught with cage traps, or by placing an egg extractor on a buried biter nest. Biters get tired after running on the treadmill after which they need be revitalized, which could be hazardous. Warning, biters might escape!

This mod is still in it's early stages and might contains some (unintended) bugs and balance issues. If you have any feedback, please let me know.

Features:

  • Treadmill Generator: Generate power by placing biters on a treadmil-like device. This might have hazardous effects if the biter is tired, but device will still function optimally.
  • Revitalization Center: A peaceful place where exhausted biters can relax and regain their strength. The methods might be questionable, but they get results!
  • Incubator: Biters begin their live as eggs, and these devices are used to raise (grow?) strong biters to run in generators.
  • Egg Extractor: Placed on a Buried Biter Nest these devices extract Biter Eggs that can later be carefully placed in Incubators.
  • Cage Trap: Catch live biters in a cage trap! For those days that you don't want to wait around until all your eggs hatch.
  • Escaping: Biters can escape from some machines if they are unhappy about the working conditions. Be sure to add protective measures around such machines.
