Mech Transformers?

I can clearly see the practical application of robots that can turn into vehicles and stuff; transport, spying and multifunctional fighters/mechs. What is the likelihood this will be in the mod at some point?

Re: Mech Transformers?

Although it's highly unlikely, at some point we could maybe. But that probably isn't within the lifespan of Sol.

Re: Mech Transformers?

Vehicles can be transformed Mr. Potato Head style. You take modules off and replace them with something else (universal sockets), and a vehicle can take on any role. In theory, anyway.
It should be possible to field strip a vehicle, but there won't be any sort of automatic transformation.

Re: Mech Transformers?

And then there's that. Prototype will not model Optimus Prime.

Re: Mech Transformers?

Uhh, you could probably put mech legs on a flying frame. We'll have to discuss control scheme at some point but there is no technical limitation against it.

Re: Mech Transformers?

Can I have G1 Laserbeak? I need a doomsday weapon, or optimus pig? I need my pig robot spies.
Also will there be a way to remotely control robots? (like regular 1st person but maybe with a green tint and a more techy GUI or like computercraft turtles?)
lastly: should the sentence ending punctuation be inside the brackets or after it?: (.) or ().

Re: Mech Transformers?

Punctuation is supposed to be after a parenthesis, IE "().". Brackets, however usually have them inside, IE "[.]" or "{.}".

Re: Mech Transformers?

If you're putting an entire sentence inside the parentheses, and it's not inside another sentence, put the punctuation inside.

Example:
Random sentence. (Random sentence?) Other random sentence.

Otherwise, punctuation goes inside.

Example:
Random (embedded phrase) sentence.
OR
Random (sentence).

EDIT: Wow, the word 'sentence' looks really weird.
