Whello there everyone, I have made an OOC in the Casual section, maybe this will fit better there :)
Materials; What are the nanobots made of, are they a metal, an organic compound (maybe they are freemoving cells), or some kind of metamaterials? They're metamaterials.
How easily accessible are the atomic or molecular components?
Not very, it's a blend between DNA and nanotechnology
What are the limits of these materials in terms of tactile strength, hardness, pressure, cold, heat, radiation, oxidation etc?
They have the hardness of a diamond, extremely tough resistants to extreme temperatures, but melt quickly when exposed to super heated metals and weapons.
Energy; How are the nanobots powered, do they have internal fuel-cells, glucose, microscopic solar-panels, are they fueled by ambient radiation be it alpha beta or gamma or through the usage of a thermocoupling, subspace microwaves or nearby electromagnetical fields? The issue is their extreme size constraint, holding a charge without magical technology of hyperspace linkage mean they either have to have a constant supply of energy or have a short active time limit before recharge.
They absorb energy, be it solar, electrical, friction, heat, ect to keep themselves going, much like a perpetual motion mechanism.
Capabilities; What is the use of the nanobots, because due to their size, it is hard for them to do more than a single or a few things. Maybe respond to a chemical imbalance by releasing medicine or expand to seal a wound. If the function of the nanobots are of the more destructive variety, how is this achieved? is it something dependant on their energy-levels to perform certain actions, are they dependant on outside environmental factors, or do they need to attain a certain group-density to reach the grey goo critical mass. This is of course the information about the nanobots most influenced by the other four points.
They can build almost anything out of anything. Like McGiver but near microscopic.
Control; Do the nanobots follow a preset of commands or instructions regardless of what the user wants? Or are they all equipped with a small processor and narrow ai, maybe a connection network to all the other nanobots for a pseudo-hivemind. They try to carry out their latest instructions.
Production; This is the kind of nanobots that assemble more of themselves out of nearby raw metals. Anything that can conduct a electrical charge can be used to create more.
Could I make something out of nanobots, or is that illogical?
Are they all humans, or are there like, aliens?
Is there a option for a magical creature to be an imposter in the ship crew? Like, it replaces one of the dead crew members to spy on them?
@Windstormugly I would be interested as well if this is still recruiting. Its always a treat to blend such styles together. Going to attempt to call the spot for the Medical specialist or Biologist : p Will everyone be a part of the same crew? Or can/will some of us be wayward from other events that left us marooned? Can/will any of us be natives of the world?
Will this be in an overall sci-fantasy galaxy/universe? Or is the magic on planet more akin to superstition? Or is it more akin to an untapped science (how else would they describe it in this case?) to the rest of the galaxy/universe? Basically what I'm leading up to is will/can our characters be magically inclined before crashing? And in what ways? Like are space mages a thing? Or is it more like biotics from Mass Effect?
