So I made art of my Engine Heart bots >///<
FL-X1 Repair and Repurpose Droid. FL-X1 (Pronounced Flex 1, or just Flex) was designed to be a general purpose factory repair bot that could also reprogram “wayward” or faulty robots. For these directives, it is equipped with a plasma arc welder and an interface prong, both attached to its single manipulative limb. After the disappearance of the humans, the factory AI took command of the factory, and FL-X1 became an “enforcer” of sorts with its sister bot. Its reprogramming ability could bring any dissent back into the fold. It was also equipped with a drone control system, and was able to bring 2 autonomous robots under its direct control. It has a nuclear battery that never needs to be recharged and a charging dock for other robots, allowing it to act as a mobile charging station and is an essential support droid for long term journeys.
Hovr Mk 1 Field Repair Drone. The Hovr was a prototype repair drone designed to be dispatched in magnitudes to repair large tracts of road, bridges, construction machines, and the like. It is equipped with a rudimentary gravity lapse propulsion system. While the unfinished Mk 2 would have been equipped with a propulsor that would allow for true flight, the Mk 1 unit can only hover a few centimeters above the ground. It can boost performance up to a half meter, but it is still very low to the ground and cannot slow its descent to prevent damage from falling. Because it is a prototype drone, it was not equipped with a powerful onboard ai, or even the best parts, so it is not well suited for conflict.
AT-X “Stock” Deterrence Drone. The AT-X line were marketed to shopowners as a theft deterrence system that could catch thieves in the act and apprehend them. In reality, they were little more than glorified security cameras on wheels. Able to drive forward at a blistering 4 kph on its treads, the AT-X could not conceivably catch all but the slowest of shoplifters, and this bot is no different. The store that this model originally worked in had 2 other AT-X drones, both of which had several aftermarket upgrades to make them more useful. As this unit had none, it was nicknamed “Stock” to differentiate, and the word was stenciled on its chassis. When it somehow wandered into FL-X1’s path and was reprogrammed, it took the name “Stock” a little too to heart. It believes itself to be a stocking robot and, in its free time, will casually rearrange small objects in the environment to be pleasing to humans. Unfortunately, it doesn’t understand humans well and generally ends up endlessly rearranging the objects until broken out of the loop.
FL-X2 Salvage and Dismantle Droid. FL-X1 R&R’s sister unit, FL-X2 S&D has none of the repair capabilities, but instead has a grasping claw to hold onto resisting robots, a cutting laser to slice them up, and a winch and cable to haul the salvaged metal around. Originally designed to shred old cars, defunct robots, and destroyed infrastructure, FL-X2 has been employed by the factory ai to dismantle any intruders that evade FL-X1’s interface prong. Its nuclear battery guarantees that even if it can’t overrun a target, it can outlast it.
ohhhhh!! thank you for sharing these!!
