Removed: No Longer Available
Morphball was removed from the game files, and is no longer obtainable.
Morphball was a tech that allowed the player to transform into a ball and roll. While activated characters were shown as a light blue ball bisected by a darker blue line.
Morphball could be used to access pathways that were too small for the player to walk inside. However, players in morphball could not jump very high, nor could they warp back to their ship, and needed to switch back to normal form in order to get over obstacles.
This tech consumed 65 Energy per second. Players still received full damage, and thus could be attacked easily whilst going down hills. It was possible to trap a player in morph ball by placing blocks completely around them. Unable to leave morphball without any space, they had to resort to waiting for the blocks to be destroyed.
It was removed with the tech overhaul done in update Cheerful Giraffe, and split into a series of similar tech morphballs with special abilities. The base morphball was replaced by the Distortion Sphere tech.
