Btw, lasers and such are dependent on the ryder's system...


why do missiles and rockets, which I see as stand alone weapons, require separate upgrades per ryder? (Excluding stock. obviously cant carry more missile by calling 'we invented smaller missiles') accuracy can be said by guiding system maybe, hmm..


scratch that,
guided missile plz.

Missiles are not loaded from the common pool. Payload, guidance electronics, fuel and launchers vary depending on manufacturer. And all friendly missile-carrying units in the game were built on different shipyards and equipped with different missile models: Sunrider - Cera military, Black Jack - civilian, Paladin - Alliance military.

Also, all missiles are already guided, which is why they lose so little accuracy with distance. Come to think of it, it makes sense for missiles to not lose accuracy at all, but have arbitrary maximum range - due to running out of fuel at some point.
Or did you mean missile as a player controlled unit with a suicide attack?

Claude is a doctor, not mechanic and ryders are not healed, but repaired.

Was thinking of TOW, not wired since thats pointless, but i was thinking scifi stuff allows some workaround.
also fuel wise, i doubt there is enough space debri to slow then a projectile so won't be an Issue i think. Kinetic does same damage in any range due to it.
Also I simply expected that Sunrider supplies all the missiles, or some trade corp, from idea that having multiple type of weaponry in small force is just unnecessary confusion. But your right. Probably each ryder has specific missiles they are capable of carrying.

Liberty: should not have been given heal power, as it dues not match pilot skill set. should have been given Restoration,as this suits the polits skill set better.
Bianca: should have been given heal and  not restore, as the pilots is a doctor/nurse, and so the skill set dues not match the pilots skills and mentality. this for me is immersion braking. but early game requite it. which is a shame.
Claude is a doctor, not mechanic and ryders are not healed, but repaired.

Also, Seraphim kinetic gun uses 0 energy for you? 1900 damage per shot?! How?!

For all others it is 100 energy per shot, unless upgraded.

kinetic
kinetic damage 340.0% ->345.0%                      49      142523149132
kinetic Accuracy 250.0% -> 255.0%                   31      19094517
kinetic energy cost -3.1918911958e-14% ->5.0% 21      104857600

so that about 1020 damage per shot. wit awake  thats about 2000 per shot depending on awaken skills ability.

in essence i cant miss and i can one shot anyi thing smaller then a default pact carrier. as you may have worked otu i sue the console comands to give mea buket load of cash. simple.

 the libiry/ blanka abialty ok her the point.

to hit a button to release  repair drones that are bound to be automated, just take a simple button push to activate.
 
whiel to work though a lot of code to find out what is a male ware and what should be there take an engineer,( eg. a specialist  code junky)

who is a code junky claude or chigar?? it's not Claude, as she to bizy being a busybody, snoop and/or a medic.
chirag is a tech and a code junky. it's kinda a no brainer for me to see this skill is on the wrong mech.

 but mehh may be it's jsut me lol

So you cheated few trillions of ingame money, heh? ;)
Why not just add 'i win' button? That way you will not need ryders at all!

Claude voice: - And then i press that button, just like Chigara told me to...

EW attacks use up energy and Liberty reserves are limited.
Chigara programmed Bianca to do EW attacks&restore. User interface is simple enough for Claude to handle.

I realized today that we could borrow an idea from Icari's nickname for Claude and give the Bianca chest rockets.

This has the added bonus of making the Havoc redundant, so we don't have to worry about losing out on potential firepower when the time comes to send that loli scumbag Cosette out the airlock with the rest of the trash!

Chest rockets... Genius! The only problem is that if they are as bad as they were in Mazinger Z then might as well not do it
While I feel that we should give Cosette chance, it's true that every beta makes me feel she really is a scumnbag...

To be honest, a big problem of the Havoc is that for the beginning is plenty difficult (so upgrading it would make the game almost impossible on hard), but after mission 8 it has become a punching bag. To be useful it would require that the quantum upgrade applied both to the Havoc and Sunrider (and so increased the power of the Havoc rockets from 300 to at least 500). And somehow upgraded missiles (Chigara magic), the one she has are sh*t, and this comes from someone who loves missile play...

PS: Edited to make clearer what I meant

odd my quantum rockets do 6000+ damage.

but think about this.

a powerful flak unit, with melee ability, that packed right next to chiga and sola tucking in nicely behind the sunrider. blastich stuff with missle.

giving sola maxum suport. and freeing black jack form this reserveposition to the would be aggressor position. or partner black jack to blanka & phalidin in the mid forwould position. with phienx up front it to score goal ehmmm to knee cap the foes mechs with her first strike, death touch ability. hmm ok i tihnk i watch to much foot ball, and play mtg... lol

Particularly cheesy subtitles aside....

The chest rockets were generally underwhelming, but they were part of one of the greatest moment in Mazinger Z´s run. The moment that marked Koji as the absolute greatest giant robot pilot ever, to this day! For a bit of context, this latest enemy robot was impossible to fight due to its ability to fly circles around the landbound Mazinger Z. If memory serves this was a 2 episode story, in the first episode this new mechanical beast had to back off because it was unable to penetrate the photonic institute´s barrier system, necessitating it go back and get equipped with an anti barrier weapon of some sort. It bears mentioning that Aphrodite´s chest missiles are not the same ones as in other episodes. Koji asked the scientists at the photonic institute to change them for larger modified versions, naturally without telling anyone why or they might´ve tried to stop his crazy plan.
