Nistorum

((hi I'm back, race app didn't work so I retconned that and went for this instead))

 

Name: Nistorum  Nistorum Ingot by Dorfus145

Description: Hardened space steel that has many uses. It's level of toughness is inbetween Durasteel and Impervium in the norm and without any changes it weighs around the same level as regular steel. If an empire can claim a solar system with planets that have Nistorum in them they'll have a good source of convenient and very expensive steel. It's resistance also varies with temperature: if the temperature is cold, it's gonna be less flexible, and viceversa if it's warmer. It doesn't vary with things such as any regular hot day on a city, but something more like standing in the middle of a lava/ice planet, or being shot by a freeze/cold ray or plasma many times, because if you shoot at a wall made of Nistorum many times (for example) you can end up heating it up and lowering it's toughness. It's resistance is also affected by temperature obviously.

 

Abilities:

  • It's resistance in the norm is able to deflect bullets and ricochet them which in a sense can be either good or bad. It can also resist most melee attacks.
  • If it gets colder it gets less flexible and more resistant, up to Impervium levels of tough, though it might difficult movement, obviously, and if it gets hot it gets more flexible and thus easier to move with. Resistance can also decrease with that.
  • Especially resistant to blunt attacks unless in freezing-cold state, where the material starts getting brittle.
  • Thicker and lighter plates mean better and stronger builds along with less weight.
  • Insulating with things such as electricity or pulse waves.

Limitations:

  • Ricochetting, because obvious reasons.
  • If it gets too cold it can start getting brittle, and if it gets too hot it starts getting less tough and more rubbery.
  • Disadvantage against weapons made to cut through really hard metals.
  • The metal becomes useless if you try to use with things such as melee weapons because it needs to be forged with thick and tough parts so it's not gonna work much for swords and other sharp weapons unless you're a hammer freak or something.
  • Nistorum bullets = not a good idea. They will most likely melt or explode in your face and hurt yourself more than you hurt your enemy upon being shot.
  • Not recommended to build buildings with it either because of how temperature affects it, unless it's used in Gaia World cities.
  • Really expensive. :ph34r:
  • Not easily obtainable.

 

How does it work: Nistorum is a synthetic material forged through molecular unificated printing in artificially high gravity and density environmets. Even though it's particles are like those of a solid object, they can change positions relatively easily which is why temperatures affect them so much-- they can get into the material easily. As easily cold/heat can enter it can also easily exit, which is why it can also vary in terms of temperature faster than most materials. Nistorum that is attempted to be forged as a regular ingot will end up as a brick of hard metal, unusable for anything apart from building obviously.

Hey there, before I really move on into the main meat of this app, I have one major question that basically obstructs me from getting a good frame of reference on any other parts of this app. What is Nistorum actually made of?

You say "Hardened space steel only obtainable from the very edges of the galaxy", but this is very vague and leaves me with many questions. Is it just average steel with a very unique means of production? Is it steel with added ingredients that give it different properties? Is the use of the word "steel" just a generic term for a metal that actually has no real steel inside of it? 

Please answer this to the fullest of your ability, and once we've got that taken care of, I'll be able to grade the rest of the application. @Dorfus

Pending.

Yeah now that I noticed, I should've clarified more on that. Apart from being made in a special way, it's also combined with the pressure on the planets on edges of the galaxy, which make the minerals where the metal is generated, well, stronger, and harder to mine, too. Basically, steel and violium combined with hard rock from the edges of space, gravitational force, carbon, and spatial pressure, which really doesn't exist because the actual pressure is generated by the really dense atmosphere. It's also usually mined in cold planets, which make it mineable, because if it had to be mined while it's resistance is in the norm, one would have to use really strong mining resources to extract the minerals from the rock, talking about industrial levels of mining here. Also, Nistorum is only generated in a planet that resides in the edges of space that has a dense atmosphere, hard rock and ends up being hit with a meteorite that contains carbon in it. There's a chance that if it hits in a place where underground there were previously these two minerals, the molecules end up combining in the explosion and forming the mineral. It's because of this that Nistorum isn't really common and when mined it's usually in the same area of the planet, so once you've located it you're only gonna have to start mining.

Alright, with that out of the way, just a few things, then. A planet being on the edge of the galaxy shouldn't necessarily mean it would be of a higher density than any other, and Violium isn't a naturally occurring metal, and is entirely synthetic. 

Perhaps this would be better done in a route where it is a synthetically made metal, where it is printed out on a molecular level in artificially increased density environments.

Seems fine by me, that way only corporations and such things can get this metal, which is what I intended. Yes. Do I change it?

Yeah, mention me when you're finished editing the application.

The description section just needs some edits it seems, also, I'm a bit confused what you mean by "-- they can get into the material easily. As easily they can enter they can also easily exit," @Dorfus

It means that due to how the material is forged in the end it's easy for heat and cold to enter the material or exit it. Edited it. @WowGain
