Steam Powered Mech Walker

on: August 12, 2010, 03:41:41 pm
A while ago , after playing sin and punishment star successor I started to program my own on rail shooter. But could never get this enemy right, I wanted some kind of mechanical toes on his feet but i never could get them quite right. I usually tried two in front and one in back. Like a peace sign if it was seen from above. I was wondering if one of you fine Gents would be as kind as to outline how you think the toes should be  ;D.

Been trying to make them two toed, but it's very VERY hard with the angle of the whole thing to make it look mechanical... >.<

All I can say is good luck with it. :)

The design looks horribly plain.. It's just a box with stick legs.


Make him more mechanized, add elements to make him look like a machine that actually works; especially on those legs, what's making the plain sticks move? Go google AT-AT's and those mech walkers in the Avatar movie and use them as refs.
Needs more upgrades too when it comes to usefulness.. Example, how will he turn to the sides? Right now his abilities seem like those of a pawn piece in chess, but without the diagonal attack.
Not to mention armor, attacks, the obvious vulnerabilities, ect.. Imo, a re-design should be the priority now.


This should help you get started. Unless these were your original intentions.. it's your call.
