    Isn`t it about time this forum actually helped people find mods that work?

    I've refrained from commenting on this previously, as obviously the developers don't have a great deal of time (and aren't supposed to be giving active support for mods anyway), and because mods are made by volunteers - who clearly can't be expected to watch the forum 24 hours a day, or make...

    Possibly not my best idea...

    The Shrapnel-cannon-turbine dragster. :rolleyes: Not as fast as I'd hoped, and shakes itself apart without invincibility mode. Needs infinite ammo set too, obviously. Uses Fenymac's big slick wheel mod, which currently has some issues - hence the extra unpowered wheels inside the big ones...

    Besiege V 0 2 steam physics weirdness

    Having previously defended steam cannon physics from comments originating on Reddit that they are 'nerfed', I have reluctantly come around to the conclusion that they currently have so many issues that it simply isn't worth designing new steam-powered machines. As an illustration, see this...

    `Ezekiel` Gentleman`s Locomotory Viewing Platform

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N0X_Talkqc&feature=youtu.be Just needed the rotation mod to build, plus a little hand bsg tweaking to get it to work. ;) Arrow keys to control. Needs invincibility mode to run, and may sometimes burst a balloon on startup - try again if it does. Please don't...

    [Suggestion] Steam-proof or self-relighting torches and flaming balls

    My steam-turbine helicopter would be much more practical if the torches didn't keep going out: :) Seriously though, a mod which stopped torches (and ideally flaming balls as well) from getting extinguished would be useful, for builders of steam-powered contraptions of all kinds. (And before...

    Das Shrapnelspittenbangenpoppenflugmascheinen

    My latest creation: Das Shrapnelspittenbangenpoppenflugmascheinen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSdYhR8lZww&feature=youtu.be My take on the infinite-ammo shrapnel-cannon and flamethrower aircraft concept that has come along with Besiege V 0.2. Not a bad start for a day's work, though it...

    Bobcat steam-turbine four-wheel-drive buggy

    With the improvements coming with the 0.2 update, I've finally be able to produce a practical steam-turbine-powered four-wheel-drive buggy. Complete with reversible turbine, three differentials, and working universal joints for the front-wheel-drive...

    An old helicopter design of mine - now with video and bsg file.

    I've seen mixed comments regarding the effects of the V 0.2 update on flying machines, so wasn't particularly hopeful when I tried out an old helicopter design of mine - I may have posted screenshots of it before: It now flies beautifully! None of the self-destructive glitching it...

    V 0.2 flaming balls and torches extinguishing too easily

    I've been using torches and flaming torches as steam-cannon heaters for several of my contraptions - and have found that the new update seems to have issues with flames going out where they worked fine before. It isn't obvious what the cause of this is - it might possibly be increased...

    My fastest steam turbine vehicle so far

    A simple design, using Fenymak's Big slick wheel mod: http://forum.spiderlinggames.co.uk/forum/main-forum/besiege-early-access/modding/30097-big-slick-wheel-spaar-s-modloader-tgyd-s-block-loader-id-270-272 The new turbine gives plenty of low-rev torque and still produces power at high revs -...

    My attempt at a steam-turbine-power 4-wheel-drive buggy.

    'Buggy' is possibly the best description. Or at least, 'glitchy'. 478 parts, including 39 gears. 3 differentials. 2 universal joints. Only works at 67% speed at best, in invincibility mode. And moves at a crawl. Until it freaks out... :( I've used fenymak's Big Slick Wheel mod to get the...

    Motorphant

    While I continue to work on my steam-turbine powered walkers, here's a conventional powered-gear-driven version. Needs to run in invincibility mode, and glitches out occasionally, but fun to play with. No mods required. It will actually go quite a bit faster if the gear speeds are turned right...

    Steam Turbine powered Quadrupedal Walker!

    A quadrupedal walker driven by a steam turbine. Glitchy as heck, and only works in invincible mode, but it shows it can be done. I'm not quite sure why it walks in a circle - probably the turbine exerting a torque or something. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=489tZiGokkA&feature=youtu.be The...

    Ye Styme Draggone - now with added Rocker-Valve Steam Dragon, and bsg files for draggone collection!

    Ye Styme Draggone: an horrendous beeste from Besiege! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pcG2GZ48ss&feature=youtu.be A different approach to steam-cannon propulsion. Not particularly fast, but more robust than some of my earlier efforts. No mods. A work in progress - I'll upload the bsg file...

    Steam Piston Beam Engine Locomotive

    A locomotive using steam/water cannons for power. :) Slow, unreliable, and liable to self-destruct, but runs without mods, invincibility off. Y then U to start - a bit temperamental, and may run in either direction. Or simply self destruct. :o Shows it can be done though. Attached Files...

    Reciprocating steam cannon engine

    An engine using a reciprocating steam/water cannon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEUcwgq04cg&feature=youtu.be Fully automatic - though it runs in either direction at random. As for why it works, I think the key point is that the cannon takes time to heat up, causing a delay before it...

    Steam-cannon rocket

    Just to show it can be done: No mods. Gravity on. The thrust from a steam-producing cannon isn't much more than its own weight, but I've managed to create something that will just about lift off. Not much practical use... Y to launch. Attached Files SteamRocket03.bsg

    Shrapnel-Cannon Bomb-Lobber

    I don't know if this has been noticed before - you can use a shrapnel-cannon to launch a bomb. You'd think the bomb would detonate, but it doesn't. Or at least, it doesn't most of the time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Li0j8YAursc&feature=youtu.be Needs more investigation, but here's the...

    The one-of-everything challenge

    A little competition for the inventive - or bored. No prizes, except for enduring fame for the winner, who will be written down in history. And quite possibly measured with a theodolite by geographers... Rules: (1) You have one of everything to make something useful. Or at least apparently...
