    Default Civilization Starter Kit. diy machines. Open Source


    Open Source Ecology is a network of farmers, engineers, and supporters that for the last two years has been creating the Global Village Construction Set. An open source, low-cost, high performance technological platform that allows for the easy, DIY fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a sustainable civilization with modern comforts. The GVCS lowers the barriers to entry into farming, building, and manufacturing and can be seen as a life-size lego-like set of modular tools that can create entire economies, whether in rural Missouri, where the project was founded, in urban redevelopment, or in the developing world.

    The Civilization Starter Kit currently contains all the training materials you need to build 4 out of 50 Global Village Construction Set machines (Beta v0.01).

    Went to the website, but couldn't find anything like blueprints or a cd for sale. The 'open-source' part fooled me.
