Go to the lunar biome section. Is the 

"Genesis introduces missions on the Lunar Biome such as Dodo Basketball and Bulbdog Basketball."

part true?

Yes, actually.

The devs talked about it and the difficulties of throwing dodos in low gravity in the ExtraLife stream after they explained the lunar biome.

It's an interesting structure, yea.

I think it was implied that this is where Helena and crew went to earlier where Helena read about the Reseed Protocol and Mei found the ascension crystal thing

That's a bit silly, but I'll take it.

You fool. Rockwell has 8 tentacles. He can throw 8 dodos at once.

The 2-armed stand no chance against him. We require the bloodstalker if we want to even hope to win.

But wait, there's no gravity in space, which means that dodos weight nothing. Therefore throwing them wouldn't develop your arm muscles much.

Wouldn't you want to do it in a place with high gravity, so your muscles are put under harder stress?

What was that you were saying?

Impressive trick, but you just activated his trap card!

Nameless, start tossing the dodos! Now!

No no no, you don't get it.

It's the element in the air there. What happens is you throw dodos a bunch and then the element evolves you to be really good at throwing dodos.

But you also have to be wary of the dodos evolving to become harder to throw. You know, claws for attaching to surfaces to make them harder to pick up...

You just have to get your dodos from somewhere with less element in the air then and bring them to space

Moving on... I wonder what that tek structure is supposed to be

The astroceti shown look absolutely beautiful though!

The bog picture has me slightly worried because I didn't notice the bloodstalker at first but maybe that's because I just woke up.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAA THERE WERE TWO OF THEM THIS CANT BE HAPPENING
And while we're looking at the picture, they've confirmed sarcos, carbons, and pteranadons for the bog.

I'm also very impressed by their incredible Moeder boss strategy

Also, THOSE ARE FREAKING SURVIVORS ON EITHER SIDE OF THE MOEDER FOR SCALE!!! THAT THING IS EASILY AS BIG AS A TITANOSAUR!!!

As for the tek structure in the lunar biome, it's probably some sort of device left behind by the ancient humans that were there. To me it looks like a tower, and the circular bit spins. But I have no idea what it - 

OH.Oh.Oooohhhh... I just thought of something - the more at the circular bit, the more I think it looks eerily similar to the end of the tek device from the countdown - 9796925_ENDOFTEKDEVICE.thumb.png.908224878bc8b538a6a27449a4ea3d81.png

Obviously they don't look 100% alike, and we already know from the Genesis trailer that HLN-A teleports us around to move us between the different biomes, so we know that even if they were related, it wouldn't be to move us between biomes. But maybe their related in a different way? Like what if their's one of these towers in every biome and they never get explained but then at the end of Genesis they like link up or something and start this amazing event? I know that's far-fetched, but it would be interesting! 

Also, you can see what looks like a ring surrounding the planet in the lunar biome photo. To me that signifies that the lunar biome is indeed within the GenSim and we weren't teleported to the moon orbiting Earth or anything like that, since Earth doesn't have rings. And no, it can't just be a contrail from the astrocetus, it's way too long and isn't the right color.

Yea, I thought they looked oddly similar too, but I'm not so sure anymore. The rings looks like tek. The obelisk doesn't really have the same design feel as the usual tek stuff though, but I'm not sure how to explain it.
I think the best way to put it might be that normal tek looks kinda jagged or something. It doesn't have many smooth sides anywhere, there's lots of sharp edges on all the tek stuff. But the floating lunatek platform in the original astrocetus teaser for example was very round. The obelisk in question now also feels smoother than most of the tek stuff we've seen before.
If you ask me, it's some sort of teleporter. It picks up your data self and shoots you out through the circle to a receiving obelisk where you rematerialize.
I have no reason to believe this, but it's what I choose to believe.

And yea that's definitely a planet ring. I'd bet we're staying in the gen sim too, but consider that just because it's not over earth, doesn't mean it must be in the simulation. If I wanted to entertain the theory that we'd be leaving the simulation, then the lunar biome could easily be the moon of a different planet that we went to. There's no rule that says we have to stay at Earth

1. I know... It's... strange. Our Tek is jagged in glowing blue/grey sections that slide and transition. The top left of the Moon-Obelisk has a design simple to one of the ARK pillars. Maybe this ties in to the "Better Tek theory" we had about the giant war. Example:

The Tek Rifle is "Jagged" with a grey/blue color, whereas the Tek Guided Missile is a lot smoother with orange/grey colors.

BUT... The Tek shoulder cannon seems to have the design we are used to. Same with the Jump Pad.

2. I dunno, I thought that the "Ring" was a streak effect left by the moving astrocetus.

Jagged is a good word to describe it, yea. The lunatek doesn't have the jagged look at all.

Naturally, if there's a place that has lunatek that we can access with normal tek...

I just had an idea about the nature of the Genesis Simulation, but it might take longer to type out than I want to spend for now, so I'll say something later.

Anyway, we can assume that if we have tek, and we go somewhere with lunatek, there'll be both tek and lunatek there, so there being new stuff for both kinds doesn't surprise me much.

And I agree that it's strange to see a non-grey non-energy color on tek like that. I can't think of any other item so far that has that by default actually.

2. I'm fairly certain it's a planetary ring. It curves perfectly around the planet, and I think we saw a ring earlier too.

Intruiging, but who's to say that Lunatek isn't regular Tek?

Also a friend snuck up behind me a while ago, and described the Tek as "alien", and the structure looked like some sort of windmill used to keep the Lunar biome floating.

My friend also said that the Moeder looks robotic. Dunno how true these things are though, just speculation.

I can kinda understand why, but I disagree. Those bunches of tendril things near the back end specifically really make me think organic.

Lunatek is the name I've given to the moon (or space) tek in general. Whatever tek stuff the Federation (or whoever was in space) created that the URE never managed to get after the war. So, by default, it's different than the tek we've seen so far.
While we're talking about names, to keep things simple make communication clearer, I propose this:
Lunatek = What I just explained
Tek = The type of tek we've seen so far
Eletek = Any technologies based on tek, including both Tek and Lunatek

As for the windmill idea... I don't know about keeping it afloat. Gravity should be able to do that on its own, although perhaps devices to help keep the remnants of the moon close together.
Since we know that there's element in the air though, it's possible that that might actually be gathering the element from the air either to power something or to be collected later.
