Proposal: More Machines

9-0, CB

Adminned at 10 Aug 2021 10:51:43 UTC

Add the following types of Machine to the list in “Machines”:

Crusher
- Cost: one Machine other than this one, plus one Box with a value of 4 or more
- Effect: gain a Box with a value of 1 if the machine paid to activate this machine is Hot or 3 if it is Cold, plus an additional 4 if that machine was Cold immediately prior to the most recent Cycle action

Axe
- Cost: one Box with an even value
- Effect: gain two Boxes whose values are each half those of the box used to activate this Machine

Glue Gun
- Cost: two Boxes
- Effect: gain a Box whose value equals the sum of the values of the boxes used to activate this Machine

Some more ideas for machines. (My current plan is to make proposals to add new machines every now and then, in the hope of reaching some sort of interesting critical mass.)

Crusher is ambiguous.

Thanks for the catch, I think I’ve fixed it.

“the number of times the Machine paid to activate this Machine had been activated” sounds quite hard to determine.

You could look through a player’s contributions list on the wiki to determine it pretty quickly (especially if they use edit summaries to explain what they’re doing). I’ll change it to something that’s a bit easier to track, though.

re: crusher
can a machine spend itself?

I’m not sure. I’ll disambiguate just to make sure.
