>>>This challenge is about building an EXPLORER or RECON machine (air, ground, water). Fictional or replica<<<

Each entry gets an upvote. Score 30+ (of 50) for something SPECIAL

Deadline: October 31 extended to 12 November

Rules:
1. Must be successor*
2. Your unique and new design* 2 entries allowed (distinct designs)
3. Minimum part count is 100* (Exploits will not be tolerated)
4. Design must be functional
5. Role must be explained in description
6. No mods (except the editor mods and smoke trail/pilot)
(* I will make exceptions from successor, new and parts number for people with problems, but only for good reasons, must explain to me)

Rating:
1. Visuals 10 points (measure of the eye pleasure)
2 Construction 10 points (how well your machine is put together, quality of your build)
3. Design/Accuracy 10 points (how innovative/interesting is your fictional machine. How close to the real thing is your replica [Blueprints, scale, weight, major details)
4 Performance 10 points (how well and realistic your build performs. Max speed, maneuverability, stability, suspensions, turn rate etc...)
5 Impression 10 points (how inspired is your design choice, how much fun is to operate it, description also counts a lot, how much work you put in this.)

Rewards:
1. My upvote on entry
2. A number of upvotes/spotlight for top5 (gonna decide later)
3. A SURPRISE awesome background designed by me, built by PhantomBladeCorp (pc and android) for people scoring above 30
4. Graphic presentation of results

Examples: (you can consult with me if you have any doubt)
Basically every NASA machine qualifies for this challenge. Drones qualify in any form.
1. Ships > quick patrol boats, Columbus caravels, research subs etc.
2. Planes examples are too many and obvious.
3. As vehicles i will accept even robots used to disarm bombs, explore volcanoes, walk on the moon etc. Off-terrain vehicles (SUVs, buggies, trucks, light tanks etc) qualify also
If you have a valid argument (in your description) about your machine explorer/recon role, i am good.

    Could I possibly enter my beaver as well? I wasn't originally making it for this challenge because the deadline was too short, but now you've extended it, I think my beaver would fit in quite well. (Use the seaplane version.)

    @BogdanX If i download your build and using skills, get my plane on to your cockpit and re-upload it, will it still count?

    @DuckMintnewprofile perhaps for survivor challenge. Still, if you want to enter the challenge, make it a successor and add some major modifications. Like a cockpit and some cameras, repair the damage etc
