Proposal: Blueprint: Plug and Play

Times out and passes at 7-0. -Purplebeard

As a subrule of Rule 2.2 (Inventions), add a new Rule called “Modular Plugboard”:-

Cost: 2 Iron, 2 Wood, 2 Quicksilver     Power Requirement: 2
The Power Requirement of an Invention with a Modular Plugboard is - rather than its usual value - instead equal to the total Power Requirements of its Parts, plus five times the number of different Resources involved in its Composition.

A cheaper alternative to the Governing Armature, that only removes the square-of-parts cost.

for Using 3 different resources in the Composition here helps to keep it balanced, otherwise I’d think this would be too cheap.

for but useless most times, I think. (square of number of parts vs, 2 Iron, 2 Wood, 2 Quicksilver, +2 Power Requirement and mabye +5*x Power Requirement (if you do not use Iron, Wood or Quicksilver anywhere else)).

“Useless most times” seems a decent enough aim for Parts; it’d be a bit dull if there was a good-in-everything Part that everyone built into every Invention.
