Topic: Two here~

I've already been told the first is a bad idea by someone in chat ;p but I personally like the idea..

1.) More humanoid style mecha. I'm a huge nut for Japanese super robots, so thats LIKELY why I'd like to see this... but thats just a preference of mine, awesome stuff...

2.) The ability to name your current mecha. If anything, for role play purposes like the biography section of your agent information panel. I'd like to name the current mech I'm piloting.


Thats my two cents. (No pun intended ;p)

Re: Two here~

you can rename your mech; right click > rename

and I like the design of the ingame mechs, 'cos they're looking more "battletech/FASA" than Robotech/Manga style !

Going to agree to whomever said it was a bad idea in general chat about idea #1. I absolutely hate those absurd and impractical mech designs them crazy Asians came up with. It's fine for a Saturday morning kids cartoon like power rangers, I'd just hate to see that in this game, or any game for that matter. That's my two cents on it.

As for idea #2. You can name your bots as Cestus said. However nobody else can see the name currently.

Re: Two here~

Oh, you CAN rename your mech? Thats awesome. Thanks for the tip guys~

Also; I hope they implement the ability to have others see it. That'd be neat.

But why hate on the humanoid style? D: Sure...its...xD well I'll admit its a bit silly but, thats probably what I like about it. Like a form of massive powered armor...I dunno~

I respect your opinions though!

Re: Two here~

I name all my bots like ships. My intakt is called The Yellow Fever

Re: Two here~

If you want the game to attract the most players it can, most of the robots should be similar to whats popular. I.E. humanoids.  diversity is good, but you gotta give the people what they want if you want their money. 

Appealing to battletech or gundam fans would raise the games population a fair amount.

That's a double edged sword. It'll increase the gundam fans, and reduce the mechwarrior etc. crowd. It will not increase the numbers in both.

Why not have battletech style mechs AND gundam style mechs?  Keep the insects and tank like ones too, variety is good, like I said.  But most of them should be variations on humans for the highest possibly player base.
