* Why do Vectron ships have Shiners (or possibly even pre-[[TheMorlocks Shiner]] humans) on their ships? Vectron's mission has consistently been to eradicate steambots, but there has never been any in-game indication that they are trying to resurrect humanity. Though it stands to reason that voltbots (as well as steambots) are originally a human creation.

* Where exactly did the dieselbots come from? Steambots reproduce by pairing up and "donating" parts for a new child. For example Seabrass giving a hand and leg for his son (and the mother giving an eye). You can also see this in [[VideoGame/SteamWorldDig Steam World Dig 2]], where Ma Yonker is [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe pretty obviously sparse]] after having three children. From there, young steambots pick parts as they grow up, which "settle" as they get older. But this doesn't really explain where you'd get a totally new "race" of oil powered bots.

* One of the accessory descriptions states that "real winners don't use coal," likening coal to a performance-enhancing drug in this universe. But if that's the case, what heat source do Steambots ''normally'' run on? You need heat to turn water into steam. There's no way they're burning wood. Are they powered by uranium?
