- a classic space theme!
While the terra forming process of Mars was ongoing as planned, the astronauts were thinking about how to push on the geo engineering in order to create a 2nd homeworld out of this planet faster. The solution was to build up a huge mobile Terrra Forming Platform, called "TFP". Because their outpost became meanwhile self-demanding, no delay (due to deliveries from Earth) or a lack of parts was expected.
The TFP is based on two tracked drives interconnected by a base body. This base body consists of two main parts:
- front cabine (conning bridge, engine control and laser turret on top)
- back bone (with crane, drill and storage locations)
The TFP is supported by a small buggy which can scout the surroundings.
