Note in general:

It's helpful to read about all issues fixed/addressed in a new build when you download and install it, because these are the things that should get extra attention during testing. There can always be exceptions that were forgotten about or unwanted side-effects that got introduced.

First I've known about the Technical Menu.
I think it's time to start over again from Day 1.

What a great feature.

Please pardon me all to pieces..."Tech Table".
Does that answer you?

A simple mind (like mine) needs a full word. No, I still don't know what you are talking about.

Your own words:

"T" selects and dismisses the Tech Table.

In other words: the upgrades menu. :)

Helpful "how-to" for new players in regard to all-direction building. Pictures explain the pattern used to get the most energy out of an all-direction map. Refer to this thread for more information: http://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=7162.0

Picture 1, 2, and 3: explanation and description of the pattern, and the poses of making it.
Picture 4: what the pattern should look like

Did you know?  If you move a vacuum maker across a shield retaining Greeper it will suck it up.

Stupid question, but do repulsors stack? I.e. if I put 2 repulsors one behind another facing same direction, will the resulting gravity beam be twice as "strong"? I somehow assumed thy do not stack but I notice on some people scrrenshots they have them stacked sometimes.

Yep, they stack.  This won't make them push Creeper 'faster', but they will be able to hold back a greater density of Creeper.
