It’s been over a month since Tears of the Kingdom released, and the enthusiasm of the community for building weird vehicles hasn’t waned. A peek at the r/HyruleEngineering subreddit today revealed a ton of information. plane, trainand car They range from using very little Zonai technology to slaying roaming enemies with massive amounts of lasers. And as more tricks are discovered, players will continue to get more creative.
But to some people, building something this complex can seem daunting. As a player who builds only when necessary to complete the game, I don’t know the level of creativity it takes to make a .death bey blade’ seems to be quite out of reach. Luckily, one of his expert engineers from Tears of the Kingdom was here to put my mind at ease.
You may have seen some builds of Zaytri on the internet. Twitter or tick tock, or elsewhere. Zaytri is the creator of his content, and in May, stay in the air indefinitely A combination of Zonai power and an electric motor stolen from a specific shrine.there is several different variations This idea is out there, but Zytri’s in particular can be accessed by all players without issue and can be used to fly to their destination. the absolute upper limit of the map.
Zayti was first drawn to Tears of the Kingdom for the same reasons many of us are. She loved Breath of the Wild. She says the building mechanics immediately caught her eye in her gameplay trailer and that building was the first activity she wanted to do when she got the game. She’s no stranger to architecture, either, and she’s had fun building complex machines in games like Minecraft and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. She told me there is.
What was the first complex build Zaytri tried? really big wheels.

“I saw a video of someone building this big wheel that could traverse land really fast, so I had to try it,” says Zaitri. “In their design the links were on a small platform outside the wheel, but I wanted to make one where the links are inside the wheel itself and it worked. If you try, you’ll quickly lose control.”
Zaytri says her goal in creating a wheel-like machine was to pursue something unique, something that others hadn’t done yet, and that inspired her to create her infinite flying machine. I will tell you. She eventually realizes that she can fuse objects found in shrines into her weapons, but casually fuses propellers from Gemmimik shrines, then uses Tallytown’s parts dismantling shop to put the propellers back together and ” Virtually smuggled out of the shrine.” When she realized she had something unique, her mind immediately jumped to another device, an electric motor, and she started thinking about what these items could be used for.
“It took a lot of trial and error to find a way to build a vehicle that effectively used an electric battery to power it and was stable enough not to fall out of the vehicle when the power went out,” she said. say. “That hybrid helicopter design was the first one that actually worked and was a proof of concept for new possibilities.”

Besides infinitely flying helicopters and giant wheels, Zytri created many other structures. One of her favorites is the “Energy Efficient Electric Witch Broom”, which uses the same propellers and motors as a helicopter. She can’t stay awake indefinitely, but she can fly long distances, which Zytri said she likes mainly because of her good looks. Zaytri also revealed that she’s focused on rides. While she’s building giant weaponized machines and washbasins for others to take down their foes, she’s trying to build a superior hybrid car that can withstand uneven terrain. and she Latest version of hybrid helicopter Unlike the original physique, it can fly safely even in the rain.

Zaytri admits that he has absolutely no background in the field that would help build such a machine. She’s a software engineer, and she says it “doesn’t always help you understand physics,” but Tears of the Kingdom shows that you don’t need any knowledge of the real world to understand it. He added that it clearly depicts the physics of a rather bizarre fantasy universe that can be. She was able to learn all the tricks necessary to build a Thopter and other devices, since a construction “failed” had no significant consequences.
This should be heartening news for those daunted by Tears of the Kingdom’s building mechanics. Zaytri encourages players interested in building more complex machines to take to heart the lessons he learned as a software engineer and start by testing individual parts one at a time. I’m here.
“Before you put it all together, make sure each piece of the build does what it’s intended to do otherwise you’ll probably break something and have to chase the machine as it flies by.” Even with that in mind, it takes a lot of trial and error to build something that works, and I’ve built more machines that break or don’t work at all than I’ve built machines that work, but honestly That said, that’s part of the fun, and making machines that fail can be pretty good content, too.”
Specifically, Zaytri advises players to familiarize themselves with this stabilizer, as its physics-defying features help balance builds that otherwise wouldn’t work. She also shares other tips:
“I know a lot of people struggle with using small wooden wheels,” she says. “The trick with these is to attach the center to the end of the wooden beam so that it can actually rotate.
“Final tip, learn from the Yiga clan. Finding their lairs and obtaining blueprints requires digging deep, but I’m really curious as to what I can build from those blueprints and how. I’ve learned a lot about the vehicles they build on, and the traps they set around their hideouts.”
Oh, and there’s one absolute bad thing Zaytri wants to share. She strongly advises players to stop messing around with Korok. “They just want someone to see them.”
