In the archieves was a suggestion that might be included in the future of IC2.
Hence, I, tried to imagine what these bots might look like.
I made a simple model for it. Although I think it's not 'blocky' enough. And overall detail is yet non-existent, but I made it to put op a little physical viewpoint. I am pretty sure Tahu and Fean will make it alot nicer ;).
Tell me too what you think it might look like.
In my eyes, they should be actually be mod-able. In my case I made the model have 2 arms that can have modular equipment. Different weapons (swords, mining laser, etc) would give different arms and different effects. Using the implementation of programming shown in the original thread. You could have a drill and a weapon, that way the bot would mine stuff for you, and has a capability to properly retaliate.
One arm contains a drill. the other one is left over for another tool/weapon.
And the reason that I placed this inside the screen shots folder is that I do not want to flood the suggestion area with a pre-existant suggestion that is only intended for some points of discussion.
I'll listen to whatever constructive criticism you may have. I can try to edit the model if your statement seems to be valid.
