Chapter 889: Solo Battle Against The Apocalypse (2)
Anyone who entered this world wouldn’t be able to utilize all their supernatural powers. This was a considerably dangerous matter to anyone.
Since the Earth World’s Laws had returned, the people of the seven Holy Churches would most likely not return.
And when dealing with a world without people, pollution was the most efficient and safest method, as all the living beings of this world had already been killed, the world itself would have no way to retaliate against these things.
The Gold Coin was letting out fearful metallic noises.
It was the Earth World’s soul, but that also meant that the Earth World was its body.
If the Earth World was destroyed, it would also die.
“You want me to use my cultivation and the twin swords Heaven and Earth to erase these pollutants?”
Gu Qing Shan asked.
The Gold Coin flew up and down, expressing its confirmation.
Gu Qing Shan carefully thought about it and slowly replied:
“…That’s not really a good solution. Not only would I need to use a lot of Soul Points to do this, but it is also too reactive, the next time the enemy uses the same kind of attack, I’ll be too tired to accomplish this again”
“Not to mention, I can’t remain in this world forever either. After I leave, how would this world deal with any upcoming attacks?”
Perhaps imagining that scene, the Gold Coin began to cry even louder and more sorrowfully.
“Don’t be impatient” Gu Qing Shan consoled it, “since people can’t enter this world right now, and there isn’t anybody in this world, it’s quite simple to solve this problem once and for all”
The Gold Coin froze.
Gu Qing Shan caught the Gold Coin in his hand and vanished.
Several thousand miles away.
Gu Qing Shan appeared in the air above a ruined structure.
Before the end of the world, this place used to be the main manufacturing facility for Assault Mechs.
Gu Qing Shan drew the Heaven sword.
He unleashed a gigantic sword phantom that flattened the ruins into a deep crater.
At the next split second, a completely new Mech manufacturing facility appeared in front of him.
Although Gu Qing Shan had already seen this happen twice, he still couldn’t help but marvel at this in awe.
—–to be able to return any object to any state it once was in the past was nothing short of a miracle.
Luo Bing Li complained: “I’ve only just woken up and you’re making me sleep again?”
Gu Qing Shan felt a bit guilty and replied: “Do your best this time, I won’t let you become so tired again in the future”
“Fine then, [Chaotic Flow] costs so much energy to use, I’m going to sleep now”
Luo Bing Li yawned and spoke with a sleepy voice.
A few moments later, a faint snoring sound could be heard coming from the Heaven sword.
This girl, do you really have to snore in your sleep?
Maybe she really was drained…
With that in mind, Gu Qing Shan felt a bit worried and asked the Earth sword: “Am I putting a lot of strain on the Heaven sword by using [Chaotic Flow] too frequently?”
The Earth sword’s mountainous heavy voice replied: 「 Don’t worry, exercise is good for your health 」
Gu Qing Shan only listened to the first two words before he ignored the rest of the sentence.
He couldn’t give this old driver’s jokes too much attention or it will just keep going at it more enthusiastically.
After flying down into the manufacturing facility, Gu Qing Shan looked for the main power grid, pulled out an electrical cord around the same size as his palm, and wrapped it around his arm.
The electricity issue is dealt with.
He walked up to an intact Mech and operated it a bit to take out the Holo-Brain inside the unit.
After starting it up and giving it a test run, he confirmed that this Holo-Brain was relatively similar to his own Holo-Brain.
Seems like after this world obtained my Holo-Brain, they spent quite a lot of effort to decode and reverse engineer it.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough time to thoroughly research and recreate my Holo-Brain.
Gu Qing Shan tapped his Inventory Bag, took out various tools, and began to remake his Holo-Brain again.
After about an hour, he finished a new personal Holo-Brain.
Gu Qing Shan then hooked it up to the manufacturing facility’s mainframe.
From how they managed to reverse engineered his Holo-Brain, he could infer that it didn’t take much to completely take over this world’s automatic manufacturing system.
Gu Qing Shan easily obtained control of the facility’s main system.
He then began to restructure the power system, the manufacturing process, as well as the system’s structures and decision-making.
It took him one entire day and night, all the way until the Gold Coin jumped out to cry again did Gu Qing Shan finish designing everything.
[Sir Gu Qing Shan, what would you like to use as the central algorithm to create the new Mobile Mechs?] the Holo-Brain’s AI asked him.
Gu Qing Shan appeared nostalgic.
It’s been a really long time since I returned to my homeworld.
He recalled Impartial Goddess.
Last time, I used the Life Algorithm to help release Impartial Goddess from her birdcage.
And now, I would be taking it one step further.
Gu Qing Shan regained his calm and replied: “Use the Life Algorithm as the base, follow my designs as a foundation and create the prototype of the first Mobile Mech”
[Preparations ready, please name the Mech]
“Call it the World Creator, as it’s going to be the beginning of everything”
[Understood, begin construction of the World Creator Mech]
The various mechanical arms within the huge workshop started getting busy.
Ten hours later.
A small, intricate Mech appeared in front of Gu Qing Shan.
This Mobile Mech appeared to be a bit strange, as it was only 2 meters tall, not that much taller than Gu Qing Shan himself.
At a glance, you would assume it to be a person, rather than a machine.
Gu Qing Shan placed the miniature power core into the ‘World Creator’ Mech himself.
The World Creator’s electrical eyes lit up.
Countless streams of blue light flickered in its eyes.
It was learning.
One minute later.
The blue light inside the World Creator’s eyes stabilized.
It looked at Gu Qing Shan and knelt on one knee.
[Godfather, thank you for creating me] the World Creator spoke
“Do you know what you should do next?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
[First step: construct archetype transportation robot, collect resources and energy]
[Second step: collect polluted specimens, utilize primitive launch vehicles to send them off-world]
[Third step: Reestablish this world’s power grid]
[Fourth step: Construct true Mobile Mechs, develop weapons and create a machine city]
[Fifth step: Improve the warp technology and complete world-wide coverage, warp the world in a steel shell]
[Sixth step: Independent study and research to ensure the robot world becomes more and more prosperous]
Gu Qing Shan clapped: “Go”
The World Creator walked up to the system mainframe, connected to the Holo-Brain, and took over control of the Mech construction process.
Humanoid transportation Mechs were swiftly produced one after another.
They were responsible for collecting an energy source to replace Gu Qing Shan as the current main source of energy for the facility.
Originally, Gu Qing Shan could’ve sent the polluted lifeforms off-world himself.
But he decided to use robots to do it instead.
This was safer.
The Gold Coin watched everything from start to finish, then let out a series of doubtful metal noises.
“Don’t worry” Gu Qing Shan replied, “In this world, nothing can use supernatural power, so the strongest power should be machines”
“I’ll create a world of Mechs and robots for you so that regardless of who arrives to this world, there would be a single end to end—– being crushed to a pulp by these machines”
The Gold Coin tossed and turned without really understanding what he was saying.
All of a sudden, it let out a cautious shriek.
“What is it?” Gu Qing Shan asked.
At the same time.
The capital airport.
Inside the ruined Mech maintenance bay.
A coin abruptly appeared out of thin air.
This was a numbered coin, with a door depicted on one side and ‘#963’ on the other side.
Among the 1001 numbered coins of the Strife Zones, it was among the rarest kinds whose value was immeasurable.
With its appearance, the void of space abruptly opened.
Several figures appeared.
“Where did Anna stop when she came in?” one of the figures asked.
Another figure pointed at the wrecked control panel and spoke: “I saw it very clearly, she stood there!”
——because the control panel of the maintenance platform was half made from non-conductive materials and half metal, it was only half destroyed by the fire while the other half remained.
The first figure then shouted: “Act quickly, our temporary warp tunnel can only last for 1 minute. After that, all of this coin’s power will be drained!”
“Sir, yes sir!” the others responded.
They were all strong, burly-looking men, obviously carefully picked-out strength-type warriors.
And in fact, they were among the strongest people of the Strife Zones.
Although their supernatural abilities couldn’t be utilized, their own physical strength was enough to lift and move a few particularly heavy items.
The entire Mech maintenance platform was lifted up as fast as they could.
“Ten seconds left!”
“Everyone stand aside!”
The leading figure took out another coin, reluctantly stroked it, and flicked it to the air.
The coin shattered into dust.
But the power it unleashed remained.
The group of people all vanished from the Earth World together with the maintenance platform.
The Strife Zones.
The seven Holy Church’s secret meeting place.
The seven Popes who represented the will of their Gods were gathered here, the seven most influential people within the Strife Zones.
“At the time, Anna came in by herself in order to put something here?” the Pope of Fate questioned.
“That’s right, Your Excellency, we saw it with our own eyes” one follower replied.
The other followers who stood with him also followed up.
“And then, one of you tried to probe Anna’s reaction by destroying the entire structure, which led to her being angry enough to kill him?” the Pope of Mysteries asked.
“Yes, this was the truth, Your Excellency” another follower replied.
The VIPs gathered here exchanged glances, then looked towards the Mech maintenance platform.
 the original term in the RAW is “老司机”, a Chinese internet slang that usually indicates someone who “knows what’s up”. An English equivalent would be “the person who gives the Sauce”. You can google for more details.
 In Chinese, “父亲” means Father, while “父神” literally translate to “Father God”. Usually, this is how the offspring of a deity or a deity-like figure would refer to their father/creator. Incidentally, this distinction also exists for how a prince/princess refer to their father, which is “父王”, literally “Father King”
