Yes, this is like Invoker in DotA... except with twice as many spells. However I tried to make the UI reasonably intuitive (for instance, sticking to 4 buttons), and the spells are all focused on building reasonably static structures.

Innate: Resourcefulness. - Stev uses the Parts resource system, which does not naturally replenish over time. Casting Q, W, or E depletes one part each. Stev gains one part from each minion kill (golems, wolves, wraiths, buff sidekicks, minions), and two parts from larger kills (buff monsters, siege minions, champions, dragon, baron).

Q: Add Gear - Costs 1 part. Cooldown 0.5, shared with W/E.
Attachment 597855
W: Add Spring - Costs 1 part. Cooldown 0.5, shared with Q/E.
Attachment 597854
E: Add Plating - Costs 1 part. Cooldown 0.5, shared with W/Q.
Attachment 597853
R: Construct - Costs 0 parts. Cooldown 9/8/7/6. You start the game with one point in R. Passive: Maximum parts stored: 10/15/20/25. Range: 700.

Of course, that's not the actual UI. The UI changes, depending on what parts you currently have in storage.

Key Combos

R: Scavenge: Gain 1 part.

QR: Windup: Target structure gains 4/5/6/7/8 [Q] seconds in duration until expiry. Duration cannot exceed original maximum.
Note: can be used to affect other mechanical structures, such as Heimerdinger's Turrets, Shaco's Boxes, and Wards. Does not affect "biological structures" such as Teemo's Mushrooms or Zyra's Plants.
WR: Substitute: Swap one of your created structures with a structure from your virtual inventory.
Note: Virtual inventory is visually shown as Stev holding a machine. Additionally it appears as a buff, like "Stev is holding a teleporter." If the virtual inventory is empty, Stev simply takes the selected object. If the selected area does not have a structure, Stev places what he has from his inventory and clears his inventory out. Structures still have expiration while in virtual inventory, and are shown as a buff running out of time.
ER: Reinforce: Target structure gains 40/60/80/100/120 [E] HP, or 1 HP if a ward.

Tier 2 Combos (NOTE: The order of which you press your Q,W,E's does not matter.)

QQR: Booster Plate: When an allied champion walks over a booster plate, they gain a temporary 25/30/35/40/45% [Q] movement speed boost that decays over 4 seconds. The booster plate is 1-use-only and lasts up to 75 seconds until expiring.

QQWR: Beacon of Alacrity: Lasts up to 60 seconds. All units in a 500/550/600/650/700 [W] range gain 15%/20%/25%/30%/35% [Q] attack speed. Has 250 HP.
QQER: Rover: An allied champion can get in a rover, granting 250/325/400/475/550 [E] shield and setting base movement speed to 360/370/380/390/400 [Q]. Champion can get out of rover by autoattacking the rover (which deals no damage). Rover is destroyed if the shield is depleted or after 45 seconds.

Ok, I'm going to post this for now, because I'm tired having all my attachments expire. Going to add more ability pics soon (credits to hiveworkshop)
