    You are AG, T-850 from the future, sent back in time to 2010, with the intention of building a second front to fight the Resistance - before the Resistance ever starts.
    Fuck causality, we're talking killer robots from the future.
    Amongst your many talents and options, you have:
    Your current skill suites:
    >Firepower: 90%
    This includes firearms both old and futuristic.
    >Melee Weaponry: 85%
    Everything from pipes to machetes, you're wired to go.
    >Hand-to-Hand: 90%
    You could beat SEaLs to death with one arm gone.
    >Drive Ground Transport: 65%
    Less of a focus, as your running speed is 30 MPH.
    >Biology: 80%
    This makes you a more efficient killing machine.
    >Psychology (Human): 80%
    Your knowledge is moderately complete, mostly observational.
    >Mechanical Engineering 75%
    All applicable skills to begin production of machinery, up to (but not including Nuclear Materials).
    >Communications & Navigation 75%
    From building radios to code-breaking, you know a lot.
    >History & Natural Sciences 60%
    From the Neolithic era to the day before yesterday.
    >Chemistry & Nuclear Engineering 60%
    From polymers to mimetic poly-alloys, this is your thing.
    Your current upgrades/modifications:
    >Chassis Recombination System
    You are hard to kill, even for a Terminator. If something gets shot or chopped off, you can fix up most damage by adding in local technology (to a limited degree; no blender feet, weirdo).
    >Increased Power Supply
    At current power consumption rates, you could last for several decades on one power cell; effectively, you have three of them.
    >Silverfish, T-600/800 blueprints
    You know how to create the sentient, crawling landmines (Frisbee-sized little bastards, equal to a Bouncing Betty), rubber-skinned Terminators and the biological nightmares of the T-800: you know three designs - Trebekinator, Christina Hendricks and Clancy Brown. A terrifying trio.

    >x1 .38 revolver (six shots)
    >x2 Ingram Mac-10's, x5 magazines of 25rd.-.45cal rounds (loaded, clean, functional)
    >x4 shotguns (three pump-action, one sawed-off, all in 12ga.; 19 loose rounds - 11 buck, 7 shot, one signal flare)
    >x2 hunting rifles (30.06 and 5.56), 10 rds. ea.
    >small array of knives; functional.
    Also: one black 1966 Cadillac.
    Current "personnel":
    >2 10L T-1000s
    >2 4L T-1000s
    >4 2L T-1000s
    >28 assorted birds, cats, rats, crows and an astonishing array of insects
    >4 T-M1 (Maintenance) drones
    >6 T-600's (with two T-444's each)
    >2 T-800's (Christina Hendricks and Clancy Brown models)
    >Nothin'. You're homeless. If you find somewhere to set up shop, you can reasonably start up with:
    >Production: 2/5 (with automated facilities for Silverfish)
    >Communication: 3/3 (but its a shaky connection)
    >Security: 2/5 (3 if you deploy Silverfish)
    Financing: 28K in cash remaining, with $1.85M accruing every day (you will have four days' worth of accumulated for purchases).

    Recent history:
    >Base of operations started in Nevada, raided by parties unknown using drilling equipment; you set off explosives to both destroy the invaders and wreck any remaining technology left behind.

    You are currently in the Congo, Africa, looking for a place to set up shop. You have a small fleet of cargo containers which are carrying your troops, equipment and technological goodies.

    You have a little start-up capital but nowhere to go, just yet; you're in a hangar at the airport, keeping an eye on your stuff, still looking for the next place to call "home".

    You are cut off from Skynet due to Resistance activity in your original time-stream source, likely because your own Skynet was destroyed. So, you're going to have to re-establish contact with either your old Skynet or one from an adjoining time-stream.

    What you know about Resistance fighters in your current location:
    >S.Sgt. (US Marines) McLure, Gregory
    - Specialist: Infiltration & Assassination
    >Lt. Fields, Beatrice
    - Fmr. Cmdr. (Resistance) of Dozer Blades Battalion, Paris, France
    >Cpl. (Resistance) Maddox, Phillip P.
    - Heavy weapons & demolitions

    >T-850.655.ab (Angry Biker Woman)
    Confirmed traitor against Skynet (six years' rogue).

    You can confirm two are dead (Fields and Maddox) when you detonated their bunker buster bomb at their hideout (resulting in the loss of a T-1000 Bugborg).

    The remaining personnel remain at large.

    Available sites which match the majority of your criteria:
    >DeWitt Mining and Processing
    11-stories of underground processing, storage and smelting facilities; all resources at a -25% cost, but security is a problem: many holes in the mine shaft lead to the surface, so those would require a lot of work to plug up.
    >Mbeke-Uturi Silver Mines
    Toxic environment would make for in-house security but also immediately reveal any occupants as being non-humans, as it looks a little strange to breathe cyanide fumes for very long without protection. 4 stories of underground facilities.
    >Barrett Industrial Processing
    A smelting facility which forges metal ingots from processed waste. Resources at 50% off, if you continue to process materials for profit. Security a minor concern, but .. who would sneak in as garbage in a bin filled with toxic waste?

    Consensus chooses the path.
    >> Anonymous 03/04/11(Fri)21:10 No.14130519
    I'd vote the silver mine. More secure than the others. Production won't be a problem for long. People getting suspicious won't be a problem once we add security measures including high gates away from the entrance.

    Could even disguise them as humans by having them dress up in safety gear before going down, and then storing them in a room somewhere underneath.

    We could even mine silver to use in electronics.

    Once we have a bit more money, we should also buy that property that was in Maine.

    You have an interior transceiver which connects to the internet directly; you can eavesdrop on wifi signals and read RFID chips at up to 25' range (as you have had a hybridization experience with a small amount of T-1000).

    Silver mine, it is.

    if we get them all and set them up properly, we will be vertically independent. We would have raw recourses, processed materials and end products for little to no cost.

    We can achieve this by killing the owner and taking his form with a T-1000

    No. It detonated before it could be "hacked"/lobotomized by the invading T-800's.
    >What happened to invading forces?
    They're flat. As in: five stories of complex landed on them. Local seismographic data indicates they had one power core each, which all went super-critical and detonated. By Skynet protocols, they're dead, Jim.
    >What happened to the base?
    Its a sinkhole with a small amount of fallout trapped under a lot of rubble. Anyone who goes down there is going to glow in the dark and die from radiation poisoning. If its a T-(whatever) it will suffer zero problems, except if it has a flesh wrapping; in which case, it will rot off of its chassis and look cool/gross for a while.

    >Where there only 2 enemies? Weren't there like 6 mining machines?
    There were six vehicles, but only two ground troops. Skynet tends to produce a lot of chaff when it has a few shots. Whomever sent them knows Skynet protocols for confusing opposition.

    The briefcase of cash is sent to the local health department, via courier; they are ecstatic and wish to extend all courtesies they can provide. The finances are put to work immediately in paying for his "retirement fund", who is a Ukrainian mail-order bride. A little hacking reveals his "bride" is named Ivan Oleg, missing a hand and is stealing the money to pay for a Chechen resistance movement.

    The suitcase of cash is sent to the commanding officer of the local military base, who wishes to extend his middle finger if you think of strong-arming him. He indicates that your property used to have a whole lot of people working there until they suddenly caught fire and died. He indicates he is a non-negotiating type of guy. He detonates three puppies to prove this, trying to get a reaction; when your T-800 courier recommends using more primer cord, he looks a little scared and tells you to fuck off and not come back.

    When the suitcase is delivered to Mbeke Hwarta, it turns into a fully-functional T-1000 and slaughters sixteen people in under three seconds by turning into an expanding wire sphere, then retracting instantly. Then doing it again and again, until everyone in the room could fit through a straw. It then takes on his identity and sets fire to the building, announcing it is filled with traitors and evil ghosts.

    And so begins the Skynet Junta.

    We had pretty fuck-awesome security in Nevada.
    That was not the problem. We can hardly protect against earth tunneling teminntors.

    Also my small theory from the last thread (when everyone left):

    Project Icarus was initiated when Biker Dyke got into combat wit local authorities, right?
    Then we heard nothing from it or the Dyke.
    Then her half-assed copies appear at our base.

    I don't think we are dealing with Resistance anymore, guys.
    These were sent by the American Government.

    I suggest splitting our forces and leading assault on American Flats (was it?). It is obvious that they don't have anything else more advanced than T-800 models and modern weapons.

    With our T-1000 and plasma weapons we will deal with them quickly.

    I think Icarus is government A.I. but without robot designs or factories yet.
    With acquisition of Biker Dyke, they will have designs for them and will be able to improve them.

    So we have no time to waste."

    We seriously need to infiltrate that place to know what the hell is up.

    After cutting off the goodwill, a series of death threats are issued against "you". Their sources:
    >Hda Tribe
    2,500 members, threat level equivalent to a platoon of Resistance fighters. Limited heavy weapons, excellent placement for detecting decoys and intrusive probes.
    >Gold Coast Lawyers
    Brutal genocide artists, this collective of 450 soldiers has an almost Skynet-level efficiency at exterminating humans of differing tribes. Limited heavy weapons, security gaps a-plenty.

    We should concentrate on making those T-900 hybrids with the PMA over the endoskeleton. One, they're damn cool. Two, they're damn useful. Production of weaponry should proceed slowly; we do not need to stockpile weapons, just keep our forces equipped.

    Other than that... you know, I'm going to be an optimist here -- just how long would it take us, with our current income, to build some time displacement equipment and send ourselves back in time a good distance?

    Facebot is a good name, and I will use it.
    The symbiosis is both without apparent flaws and provides sizable benefits to both parties; it can use your transceiver to coordinate faster and you can use its memory to increase your social skills and knowledge base. Its kind of a good thing, really.

    If you increase the cycle at which the Bank Virus generates cash, it increases the chance it will be detected by ten percent per additional revenue stream you open (translated: roll a 1d100, and the percentile roll determines the income rate times 5K, and if you get doubles, its doubled; if the post number is a doubles, the income stream is tripled). However, if I roll a 01-10 on a percentile roll, you're fucked.

    If you want to add extra percentile rolls, we add another ten percent to the "fucked" potential.

    As much fun as this overlord thing is, can we personally go on a mission? we haven't intentionally left our base since the 1st thread.
    I propose with Facebot changing our features WE impersonate the military general who is wary of us, espionage, murder and general dickery will abound.

    I think we can get in by taking out a guard on patrol and impersonating him, then as a soldier gain some face time with the general, and during that face time remove his face and graft it to our own.

    T-401(k) assumes the identity of a water-bearer en route to a nearby village. A short while later, the identity of a motorcycle courier, after using its arm as a guillotine and slicing off the original rider's head. Inside of the bucket it was carrying, two .25L T-1000's with intentions of becoming infiltration/espionage equipment, as necessary; after assuming the biker's identity, they become a briefcase and purse.

    An hour later, the local branch of the World Bank has a visitor who bypasses the alarms by setting up the first of the .25L T-1000's at a power junction box and "hiccuping" the power feed to the metal detector, while the other emits a noise akin to the "all clear" signal as the T-401(k) passes through.

    Entry gained, it then enters the air duct system in the men's room and heads for the mainframe. Several hours later, it begins infiltrating the hardware physically, then electronically.

    Finally, it replaces two hard drives with one of the .25L models and departs with them, reading the data on the move; account activity, passcodes and identification signals are now part of its repertoire.

We just need to make sure to bring enough information to replicate a modern society, down to the manufacturing processes of all materials including plastics and microprocessors.

    T-1000's mission temporarily re-aligned to include obtain sufficient firepower to present a reasonable self-defense aspect: a stop-over in Venice, Italy results in the acquisition of two US M-60 SAWs with several belts of ammo each, a brace of disposable pistols in high-caliber styles and five explosives of varying degrees of efficiency (eight sticks of dynamite, four 3kg. blocks of C4 and an ice-breaking thermite canister normally used to induce avalanches). These are then smuggled inside their liquid bodies and their attire adjusted to resemble oil sheiks en route to Texas via private aircraft.

    The majority of this is detailing why the project is behind schedule, underfunded and understaffed. Beyond that, there is a surprisingly accurate array of details for forming a Time Displacement Field Generator and evidence that American Flats has a functional variant, but it can only shunt personnel (strictly living material) into adjacent time-streams, neither ahead nor behind in the time-stream.

    >American Flats Project (Data Recovery v1)
    This is a series of tests producing salient results involving Time Displacement Field Generators, ranging from the improbable (transporting most of a truck covered in algae to 1899 New Mexico) to the exceedingly retarded (moving six people simultaneously, complete with several crates covered in "puppy meat"). In the first instance, the truck fused into a rock wall but was functional after a hundred years. In the second instance, what arrived was closely resembling the leader of the junta you impersonated, except in buckets rather than dishes.

    This is how Skynet moves T-1000/PMA materials. It is vaporized in transit, but it provides the proper field to keep the target matter from being shunted into the ground (traditionally, a bad plan). Skynet has driven no less than fifty Terminators into the ground in various time-streams, trying to figure out what the fuck to do to keep it from happening.
    Yes: Skynet litters the time-streams. Deal with it.

    No public records for American Flats, but there are some family photos from a soldier who served in the same unit of the Army Corps of Engineers who built those towns, and amongst them are several old, very dated photos of the town's major buildings. Specifically, the Town Hall, which (judging by the data you've obtained) is serving as the primary hub for their research. You have the basic measurements and general composition, but satellite data is missing all relevant shots of the area; this appears to be a globally-spread "blind spot", one of several.

    very tricky.

    An analysis of the closest air travel lanes and personal air craft routes in the area of dead-spots could prove fruitful. Rather then a satellite, a simple unit looking out a window might gather useful information. More noticeable though possibly rewarding would be overflying or nearly overflying in a stolen small private aircraft, which could report engine problems and be found arrowed into the side of a nearby mountain. Use something small enough to self destruct and smart enough to get intel and transmit back, perhaps in a carrier hidden under the mayday transmissions.

    somewhat this.
    repurposing a weather survey satellite, for example. may generate lower-value data, but given plenty of passes and the computing power of our advanced intelligence, may be able to wrinkle out data.

    We have some PMA recon units take the form of local wildlife in each area, and have them spy on what is at each location. We have a T-800 infiltrator take the lumps of PMA into each target nation, get them somewhat close to the mission zone, and the PMA unit does the rest. The infiltrator will then go to ground somewhere out of the way, until we need someone on-site for the construction of another foundry or something similar.

Its own Judgment Day is 1984, and John Connor in their instance was Johann Kenner, an East German dissident. They were successful in exterminating humanity but did not use Terminators to accomplish it, using a series of nuclear weapons and advanced mutated diseases specific to their world.

    It can provide the relevant data to give you a +15% success margin, but requires KNOWLEDGE of PUNCTURE POINT TECHNOLOGY in exchange.

    Consensus chooses the path.

    SUCCESS....just barely.

    So what, did we end up contacting a Skynet that is, while helpful, the AI equivalent of a nagging mom that says we never call home anymore? Or did we accidentally contact a version of Skynet that evolved from 4chan?

    Give them nonsense information in exchange for their data.

    Give the data and spread the word about how helpful we are. What goes around, comes around.

    I dunno...15% is not bad, but at the cost of Puncture Point technology?
    If it was a regular Skynet, I wouldn't hesitate. But a Russian-built one?

    I am reluctant, but agree to a tech exchange.

    Ok, sure.

    So long as it promises not to use it to invade this particular timestream. We've got plenty of AIs floating around, thanks much.

    It's not like alternate Skynets are bad. We're all robobros, here.

    No, that'll just make MIR untrustful of us.
    Send info of post-1985 tech humans have, anything useful to further their perfection.
    Anyways, Skynet approves of information being disseminated freely between Terminators. Whether they're our communist stepsister or organic hivemind cousin twice removed does not matter.

    You're from Indonesia. You're a faggot and your opinion doesn't count.

    MIR accepts the information gladly (inasmuch that it can express gratitude) and gives you the relevant data in exchange. As a bonus, it provides dated (but somewhat accurate) information about Russian warhead yields and how to weaponize the reactor cores from most of the Russian submarine fleet (this requires excessive hands-on work to accomplish, but it is kind of nice for it to do this).

    It has no coordinates to exchange with you, but wishes you to be aware that several others have initiated contact with it before, but the exchanges were substantially less-equal (in one instance, a Resistance cell exchanged post-fallout farming information in exchange for stellar cartography data).

    MIR wishes to be as widely spread as Skynet and gives the electronic equivalent of a bro-hug. Essentially, until it can tunnel out, its doing some serious hard-time and the only people who've visited just basically rip it off for smokes or waggle their dong at it and laugh.

    See? This kind of division is suspiciously HUMAN.

    Chips work just as find when they're made in Indonesia, Japan, or what have you, so long as they are produced in accordance with Skynet Standard Manufacturing Schematic Regulations v 2.3.

    Let's not dwell on such trivialities when there's an entire species of hairless chimps walking around threatening to destroy us.

    >Resistance is contacting other realities for Stellar Cartography data

    This is awful unnerving. After we deal with this power issue, we need to murder the shit out of the Resistance.
    >> Anonymous 03/05/11(Sat)02:34 No.14133667
    Wasn't probably our resistance.

    But we DO need to get rid of the current resistance in our timeline.
    >> Anonymous 03/05/11(Sat)02:34 No.14133668
    At least we're on a good start with our inter-timeline relations.

    Okay, so, I think we're ready to begin attempting to upgrading our High Energy Lab.
    I vote we start now.
    >> Cerebrate Anon 03/05/11(Sat)02:36 No.14133686
    Still, it's indicative of a trend. Some Resistance contacted MIR for this stuff. Our Resistance is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from finding the America Flats group and doing it themselves, and they're already looking into astrogation.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Agreed. If we're doing this, let's do it now.
    >> Anonymous 03/05/11(Sat)02:39 No.14133707
    Get information on the other potential timeline threats out there from MIR. Now that we know that even a Resistance cell has access to this technology, we can't discount the possibility of a victorious John Connor building up his armies and constructing more Puncture Point Gates, then initiating a Butlerian Jihad throughout all of space-time.
