Basically all biomechanical parts of Archeogenis' mechs are cloned from the same type of stem cells.
These were found deep in the Brain Core of the original Ancient war machines from which it all started.
These can mutate in either Structure or Core cells.
Extremely durable, they have a "nervous" and a "circulatory" system and they can regenerate damage as long as there are stem cells in the circulatory system.
The exact mode of interlocking and motion system has been recently cracked.
When they're left without stem cell flow for too long, they die, and can't be used anymore except to be compressed into Bionite.
In their crystalline form they work as BOTH a power generator and a CPU/memory bank, incredibly suited for A.I.
If damaged beyond repair, they die, becoming useless but not exploding.
Compresssed dead Structure Cells. Incredibly sturdy, but with no regeneration features.
This substance is secreted from the joints of Structure Cells body parts. They work almost like a gecko's palms, adhering on one another with an uncanny grip, but still being able to slide quickliy on nano-peduncules, thus allowing movement.
The strength and speed of the movements are determined by the Brain-Core's output.
Biomechs have a life cycle that can range from 25 years for mass-prod or older models to 75 years for elite or new models, to over 100 years for the most recent elite mechas.
Even if they are battle ready in a few days after assemply, they don't reach full maturity before a year, and thy achieve their peak performance at about 1/4 of their life span.
They keep that until the last 10 years of life or so, then they begin to slow down, become weaker and eventually die.
After death their bodies are recycled as Bionite and the nervous system returns in the spawning pools. Permalink
EAP Evolved Artificial Personality -
The next step of AI. A machine with a working EAP develops creative thought patterns and actual personality traits. The machines with EAP can be considered alive at all effects.
A biomechanical device based on quantum physics.
Exploiting the principle that the state of the universe is determined upon observation, as soon as EVERY passenger on board percieves to be at the selected destination, the ship is there.
Teams of psychis are employed to enfoce the same viewpoint on the crew, through a Psi-Array.
Also, The Perception Drive performs other 2 functions:
1-Gravity. This is easy because all passengers already share a preconception about what's "up" and what's "down"
2- Defense. As long as ALL passengers think the ship is undamaged, no damage is taken. Of course, after a few shots give it a good shake, the Psychics can't enforce this viewpoint anymore, and the ship returns normally vulnerable.
This device is hundreds of meters long and it can't obviously be equipped on small ships or mechs. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/146965
MTA (Mysterion Thrust Array)-
It's supposed to give a vehicle/mech a sudden forward boost and a great increase to forward defense and attack penetration. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/139114
Synthumans are biomechanical androids obtained cultivating Structure Cells and human tissue.
They are extremely intelligent and trustworthy.
While not as strong or apt at fighting as other lines of androids, they are more reliable and in recorded history they never malfunctioned. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/172685
Aura Weapons -
These weapons are ring-shaped and can hit anything within their range witout mechanical aiming.
Thay can also shoot 360° or spherical bursts, hitting anything within range but the ship carrying them.
Moreover, they can power up or down any energy attack passing through the ring. http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/178944
Enthropic Engine -
As you know, a graet deal of the universe's energy is wasted in useless background radiation and dispersed heat.
ArcheoGenis created a relative-negativity field that actually draws this "lost" energy from space to feed its ships' Brain Cores.
This makes newly-designed AG ships almost self-sufficient (they still need minerals and water for the cloning pits).
At the current state, the Enthropic Enginr occupies so much space that it's impractical for warships (the JCSSD is not a warship). http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/222729 Permalink

Radiation manipulated stem cells to improve standart abilities and increase cloning process
STATUS: failed; all prototypes injected in a Mysterion object, which adapted them into own systems.
