    How about a basic guide for building 8-wheel vehicles.

    I often see them like this, itís good but in some terrain some wheels will be in the air.

    I generally put two wheels on a bar attached to a rotating block, but they can flip over unless you have something to block it from flipping..

    Just found this pic using a hinge block, it looks like a good design.

    I will be redoing these videos in the next week. They are just the basics but I'll add a few different designs in each video to give viewers an idea of the freedom they have

    I would love to see a good tutorial on building mobile bases as I am having a hell of a time getting one to move properly.

    if you have trouble moving a mobile base justadd more wheels, hoverpads or airblades. but to me a mobile base is adding 72 large air blades to my base and digging out of the ground LOL

    From some of your videos i've seen, I'm surprised you haven't tried to turn a whole planet into a Death Star by now lol.

    Do you have a video somewhere that explains how to set up the auto-switching system that you use for your large automated constructs with all the hovers? I have made it through about 40 of your videos and can't find anything about how you set those up (Like the walker you just built). I assume it has something to do with the auto-reconnection of switchboards when you get in range, but not sure the specifics. What is the wheel for on the end of the rotating blocks?

    i started working on the inventory system in episode 12
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-5COLzegT0
    i explored the conveyor mechanics a bit in 13(i may be wrong with my findings)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwDwTsAtYUc
    and in 14 i get everything finalized including a rework of the sorting system

    the wheel i have sideways is just to create drag to slow down the timing. its tricky to fine tune as it can stick easy but its basically a mechanical clock
