Predator design | Breeding | Traning

Descended from the great racers, the Predators cross the Compas finishing line. They are the fastest Mehorses on the planet. They are called Predators because of their balance and the grace we love so much in big cats.  This includes horses of the English thoroughbred breed.


Famous for their speed over long distances, the English thoroughbred is one of the oldest horse breeds. Their fiery temperament and will to win make them the main favourites in both flat and steeplechase races. However, this character can lead to injuries and unexpected outcomes of events on the racecourse, which can be disastrous not only for the horse, but also for the jockey.

 

Compas has a commitment to the safety and welfare of all living creatures. English thoroughbred horses were chosen for the project. The aim was to help them overcome the difficult moments in their lives associated with injuries. Lower limb injuries first and foremost.

All horses that cross the threshold of the Compas become Mehorses. Depending on the breed, they are given a "model" name, and then there is a process of mechanisation and transfer of consciousness to iron.

Wide nostrils. The back is more developed and powerful in stallions, in mares it is soft. Deep chest and developed, not wide shoulders. Taut abdomen. Correctly set limbs. Hooves of standard size.

Predator appearance

 

  1.  Head is a mechanical construction with a high degree of protection against mechanical damage. Inside this "box" is a one-piece chrome vanadium capsule. The end of the capsule has a thick protective threaded cap.
  2.  The cover has inlet and outlet ports for fluid supply. It also has channels for electrical conductors.
  3.  Inside this armoured capsule, all this is needed to power the horse's living brain.Below, at the level of the throat, is the life-supporting module of the biological component, in our case the brain.
  4.  A "mechanical heart" system and an oxygen-enriched atmospheric air supply unit circulate artificial blood in this module.
  5.  "Artificial lungs" also have nitrogen and oxygen reservoirs in the back of the horse's body. These ensure that the mechhorse can continue to function even in an airless environment or when external factors do not allow the ingestion of pure atmospheric air, i.e. air that is unsuitable for breathing.
  6.  There is a central computer in the lower part of the neck. It processes brain signals and sends impulses to all the Mehorse units. It's legs, neck, back, etc., and even a tail. The computer has another, not insignificant and perhaps even more important function: It controls the built-in atomic mini-reactor.
  7.  This reactor is located in the horse's chest. Visually, it is where the lungs should be.It makes sure that all the mechanical parts keep working.

 

 

Excess energy can be released by the Mehorse through the "mat" to the general energy system. Or it can be part of the "Energy Cube".

Care

Unmodified Predators require a well ventilated and lit stable. Feeding and feed distribution are individual. They depend on the workload of the Mehorses. Check the feet and hooves for injuries or sprains when caring for Predators.

 

 

Breeding and Cryo Bank

Available after opening the Cryo Bank.

Breeding is permitted in the CryoBank for individuals who are at least three years of age or older.

Breeding a pure line with a PPxPP value. Hybridization is not available at this time.

 

 

 

Name

Unique name that appears on Mehorse's passport and in the foals linage. It is forbidden to call mechors by the names of famous horses (Secretariat, Ruffian, etc.), celebrities and politicians.

Nickname: much more common than breeding name, as it is a common name used by owner.

 

Predator design has two components: an artificial skin (Predator coat) and iron head and legs. The fake fur is just a copy of the suit worn by the now living Mehorse. In the Predator, only the brain remains alive. Coat colour  remains a reminder Mechors of the past, that it is still alive, but in a different shell made of iron.

 

Coat color

The price for the base color and the modifier are calculated according to the table of suit rarity. The rarer the color, the higher its value.
Dominant alleles in a genotype are worth twice as much as non-dominant alleles.

 

Mane and Tail

 

Manes and tails are also allocated according to the rarity table. Standard manes and tails are included in the total cost of colouring. Long manes, curly, super thick and "Volga" are counted separately.

 

Additional details

- pure color without overflow. Without aluminum shavings that create shimmers and "Metallic" and "Chameleon" effects
- Interactive Colors Decoration - ICD. When you change the viewing angle, the colorful layer changes its color completely. While "Chameleon" changes color on the principle of shimmering aluminum in the paint composition, ICD changes the color of the details completely.

 

Mehorse Custom

Key points to consider when ordering a design: coat and modifiers, texture and length of mane and tail, colour schemes of part paint patterns, all determine the overall look of the Mehorses and their total cost.

Before ordering, you should decide on a general colour palette for your Mehorse. Overall image of Mechorse should be harmonious and pleasant to look at, but there are exceptions in the form of the Predator design, the colour palette is bright, sporty, unusual.

 

End of journey

Predators are used as an energy source over time. Predators are rendered unconscious by a chip implanted in their brains (the mechanicals remain motionless and dream) and sent as an energy unit to special containers called Energy Cube.

The Energy Cube is equipped with a computer that monitors the Raptor's condition and sends signals to the control room. The control room then deals with any malfunctions. There can be up to eight Raptors in an Energy Cube.

To power a small town, EC are assembled into large batteries, which can supply even small states with energy. The energy from the Energy Cube is used to power a charging station, or to power nuclear-powered tankers and ships.

 

One day there will be a whole state built on the energy of the Mehorses. But that is another story.
