How do I use a .bsg file?

Swinging contraption (Roy, this is interesting)

Maybe, just maybe this could be used for a 4-phase motor
I have an idea of how it would work in Besiege

I need to put a night over it though, it's still very vague in my mind and right now, hard to explain

Machine runs and swings automatically

Realistically with a 4 stroke motor you would be wasting a revolution. Since the only reason we have a 4 stroke is to allow for an intake and exhaust charge. There isnt anyway to contain something like that here unless you can pool water and then turn into steam, but that would end up the same as the on/off steam we use now, whether its with a valve to block constant steam of ignition of the water jet to steam.

Still neat contraption though :D

Yes, true, but it it would have 2 cilinders 180° apart from each other, so every revolution would have something that powers it
It would be just for show, I'm confident I might be able to make one

I have another idea for this one, but scrap the idea with this for the 4 stroke

I want the 4 stroke not for it to work with the exhaust and stuff; rather just for show and a proof of concept

This could MAYBE be a decent perpetual motion machine, if my theory is correct I will upload this next, otherwise I will start working on the 4 stroke idea

The water stream is 8.5 degrees off from what i see:

This angle doesnt apply to steam:

okay, I'm going to work on a better valve design now
