this is the bubblebike aka the forest explorer.
after finding my 3rd flatbed on a farm i slaved over it all day yesterday. it has 4 36" wides, two next to the driver, so you could think it was build from a segway, one in front and one, for vanity, under the rear center trunk. 2 v6 engines power it. 3 tanks, flashlights wherever there was a slot. plates from the last slides in the neighborhood.
i was going for a 3x3 hovercar where i could be the turret but chickened out because of the acid rain. so i went for a double handle 'twister' cause i wanted to see the thing turn. here's what that looks like:
this is in the space before the lab i took over more than a year ago. when i do it right it can turn there without hitting the trunk-rover. my lab's next to a highway that goes straight for like forever. the thought is that i will burn down houses and/or make logging roads along that line so that it can fly through the world, ok, maybe with one more engine, before i set up camps to the far south and north..
going a few screens west i have a flooded road aka a swimming hole. its a single tile river tile that taught me the value of marking up the road with graffiti, meaning i can slow down or brake in time. with speeds like this i have to just look for the color before throttling down so i can make the turn into the forest on my final approach back to base.
back in reality though, i've never yet tried a mobile turret. i think it could work if i put 3 walls behind the driver and the turret on the rear handle. yes? what do i need to know about that?
