 Traps Incorporated 1.1 [Bunker Systems Modding Theme Winner]
Tired of lacking an adequate second defense mechanism?
Waiting for emergency reinforcements to drop in?
Worried about replenishing your base?
Worry no longer!
With TrapCo's highly advanced trap systems, you can have the peace of mind, without the cost of an expensive unit load-out.

We have several wings for different trap classes. However, due to your remote location, we are only able to ship a limited subset of our traps to you. Listing available traps for $PLANET_NAME:

Electronics Wing:
Thanks to our recent purchase of SSC Electronics, we now can use advanced hijacking methods, as well as enjoy improved electrical systems.

Accelerator:
Image
A combination of a modified teleporter and conveyor, this thing will rapidly accelerate large objects, allowing you to smash your enemies into each other, or simply into a wall.

Fake Brain:
Image
This brain case emits a signal that pretends to be the real brain. It's also loaded with some "nanite toxin". Rest assured, it works against everything but your own units.

Scrambler:
Image
This holoterminal can overwhelm a unit's visual data transmission, scrambling the map data of the controller. Only works on locally controlled units.

Jammer:
Image
We have engineered a new radio blocking material that's just as strong as normal tunnels, allowing us to create this otherwise normal tunnel that blocks control signals. Also, due to the need of an active jammer to increase effectiveness, the light has been replaced.

Explosives Wing:
Explosive traps, for the customer who wants reliability.

Nuclear Failsafe:
Image
A powerful neutron pulse weapon disguised as a safe. This activates once, destroying the safe. The weapon can be activated either manually, or automatically on destruction.

Bombcrete:
Image
A potent proximity mine, disguised as a concrete block. Also available as Sand/Snow Traps and fake plants.

DigBlock:
Image
Excellent for dealing with pesky diggers, these are blocks of dirt LOADED with small explosives. Guaranteed to stop those nasty tunnelers. Available for all soil types.

Fuel Door:
Image
An otherwise normal door using liquid explosives instead of normal TradeStar hydraulic oil. Makes it a bit weaker, but excellent for delaying enemies.

General Wing:
Traps that just don't fit into any of the other wings. These are still just as potent as the specialized traps.

Cutting Spikes:
These are metal poles with hidden extending spikes, designed to remove limbs in a gory and effective manner.
Image
The classic Knee Cutter model in action.
Image
The Head Cutter variant.
Image
Our latest model, now with extra dark sparkle magic - The Flaying Spike. Designed to strip an enemy armor and limbless, as well as helpless.

Fire Demon:
Image
An updated version of the classic "Sealed Evil in a Can", this is sure to light up your enemies.
Upon release, the fire demon will summon fire rains, and begin to suck the souls of every non-brain actor on the map, turning them into Fire Skeletons, and thanks to advances in Psi Manipulation, these servants obey YOU.
Comes in two editions, a cheaper Trial edition, and a more expensive Full edition.

Important notes:
Technical:
The Fake Brain has been extensively tested, however in spite of constant testing, there remain a few issues with use of multiple Fake Brains, including:
    * Interface slowdown
    * Radio feedback on destruction, resulting in destruction of real brain
    * Interface crash destruction(mostly eliminated)
    * Shrunken genitalia
TrapCo advises using only a handful of Fake Brains

The "CastMO" proximity detection system used in our Bombcrete and Knee Cutter series has been known to cause interface slowdowns if overused.
The detection loop in our Accelerator, Jammer and Scrambler has also been known to cause interface slowdown if used in excess.
However, the passive construction of DigBlock and the Fuel Door allows for effectively zero slowdown.

The fires started by the Fire Demon trap can cause interface slowdown on slower interfaces, due to heat forcing circuitry slowdown.

Release Notes:
V1:
Release
V1.1:
MP3 dependency fixed.
V1.1[B23]:
B23 patch released. Due to incompatabilities with older neural interfaces, the scrambler is removed.

I've been waiting for this, it's totally boss just by the looks. Accelerator is totally brawesome.

Unfortunately there is a dependency on Map pack 3, which I don't have nor want.

Edit: It's on the Vault.

The first few looked kinda...well, unoriginal, but you really impressed me after the first 2-3

I particularly like the exploding dirt, can be useful (and lolzy) in multiplayer also.

Good work!

Well ratatat, wouldn't it be normal to assume that all mods released after a new build is for that build unless stated otherwise?

There aren't any major changes between B23 and B24, so my guess is on both.

I think I used HUDVisible at some point(which is only in B24+), but just change that to CharHeight, and it SHOULD work.

Anyway, besides that little MP3 mixup, it's good to know that everything is working.

Also that, and unfortunately there is no way to port it(requires FoW).

Wow!

This traps just blew my mind of... well, 23 of them, to be exact.
The DirtBlock is AWESOME! Apart from being original it works perfectly. And killed 12-15 of my brains because of bad positioning (Who would knew those explosions could go through the concrete of a brain vault? :P)

Keep modding!
