When submitting a Machine idea you may be as short or as elaborate as you like in your descriptions, just let your ideas flow.  Generally the more the better as it's easier to crop ideas down rather than blow them up.

 

RESISTANCE DESIGNATION(S): Here is where you will include any nicknames that the humans have for the machine.  These are not SKYNET designations.  Terms like "Creeper", "Stickman", etc. are used here.

 

SERIES:    (Please refer to here for this information and try to follow it if possible.  New Series / Type / Model designations are welcome
                      but subject to editing to fit the context of this site)

TYPE:

MODEL:

 

PRIMARY DUTY PURPOSE:    The primary function of the machine such as "capturing humans" or "repairing machines in the field".  Multiple functions are allowed.

SECONDARY DUTY PURPOSE:  Any secondary functions of the machine can be included here, if necessary.  Multiple functions are allowed.

PRODUCTION RUN:                     The total number of machines that SKYNET produced during its production years (see next)  

PRODUCTION YEARS:                The years that the Machine was produced and put into use by SKYNET

PRODUCTION LOCATION:         The areas / locations that the Machines were produced.  For example; Manufactory 12, Northwest Sector, Area 5, Block 12

LOCATION(S) DEPLOYED:         The primary locations that the Machines were deployed.  You can be as vague or detailed as you like here, specific areas
                                                             (such as urban sewers and basements) or broad (mountainous regions)

 

POWER SOURCE:                        Most Machines use compact nuclear power cells.  Exotic power plants would be pretty much out of the question but batteries or
                                                           solar powered Machines (small) are possible.  Describe and list the number of and type of power supply systems here.

BACKUP POWER:                        As above but the backup systems used to supply power and energy to the Machine should the primary system be damaged or
                                                           destroyed.  The T800 displayed this feature several times in the movies.

ENDURANCE:                               How long the Machine can operate between recharging / resupply / refueling

PERFORMANCE:                         Speed.  Lifting capacity.  Altitude.  Etc.  What the Machine is capable of doing and its limits.

CHASSIS:                                       The body of the Machine.  The T800 used a "hyperalloy armored microprocessor controlled combat chasis."  Give me your ideas here
                                                           and I'll run with it if you can't.

SUSPENSION:                              Any notes on the suspension.

LOCOMOTION:                             The primary propulsion / movement systems of the Machine; legs, treads, jets, etc.  Make sure this matches the Type / Model / Series
                                                          info above.

 

SENSORS:                                    Describe the primary sensors of the Machine.  How many senses does it have (touch, taste, see, hear, smell)?  Are these below or
                                                          above human norms?  Telescopic?  Microscopic?  Infra-red?  Ultra-violet?  Motion tracking?  Radar?  Sonar?

BACKUP:                                      The backup sensors available to the Machine.  They generally won't be as effective or as powerful as the primary sensors ... or they
                                                          could be direct replacements in case of damage or destruction.

PRIMARY CPU:                            Be creative.  Discuss how the "brains" of the Machine are designed.  Be as specific or as broad as you wish.  Look at my Machines for
                                                          examples if you need to.

SECONDARY CPU:                    The auxiliary brains.  Again, probably not as powerful or efficient as the primary CPU or it could be a direct replacement.  Not all
                                                         Machines may have a secondary CPU.  Or it could be a highly specialized processor designed for one of its duty roles.

BACKUP CPU:                            Emergency backup brains for the Machine, if any.  Could also be a specialized subprocessor designed for the duty role(s).

 

PRIMARY ARMAMENT:             List any primary weapons that the Machine is equipped with.  Some Machines, like the Endos, may or may not have built-in weapons
                                                         and will simply be issued weapons or be able to pick up weapons and carry them.  Other Machines, like the Aerial and the Tracked HK
                                                         will have built in weapons which cannot be removed short of major service depots.  If the Machine uses weapons which are limited in
                                                         ammunition (grenade launchers, machine guns, flame throwers (fuel), bomb racks, etc.) then list the amount of munitions that the
                                                         Machine can carry before it has to be reloaded and mention how it can be reloaded (in the field, at a service depot, etc.)

SECONDARY ARMAMENT:      List any backup or non-primary weapons here following the above guidelines.

 

DEFENSIVE:                               List any and all types of armor, their capacity, their thickness, their makeup, etc.  For example - "a 3mm Hyperalloy sheathe floating on
                                                        a magnetically stabilized gelatin layered over a 2mm plasticeramic case bonded form"  You can be as specific or vague as you like, I
                                                        can fill in the details if I need to.  Also include any defensive systems that the Machine may have.  Aerial units may have radar / laser
                                                        jammers (and later just "sensor" jammers), flare or chaff dispensers, etc.  Tracked units may have reactive armor or smoke dispensers,
                                                        etc.

 

OTHER:                                         List any other offensive systems here, exotic, mundane, etc. if they are included in the design of the Machine.  Also, such stuff as
                                                         strobes, white spot lights, winches, repair systems, or other carried equipment should be listed here.

 

 

BACKGROUND / HISTORY / NOTES:   Here's where you tell me WHY this Machine was created, what it does and how it does it.  You also tell me what SKYNET and
                                                                        the Resistance think of this Machine, was it a success?  Was it a failure?  If so, why?  Did it have any weaknesses?  What was
                                                                        it like when it existed?  Tell me a story and make it a good one.
