flexible armour is already on the works, I don't have the link of the research, but it was like "cloth" for those places where rigid armor is not very useful, like hips, shoulders, and other joints, and becomes rigid like armour upon impact.
I'll have fun with this one, no doubt Also thanks for the info on the flexible armor, I actually was thinking in a similar vein, that it would probably be a single color tone of some kind and you pretty much clarified it for me
That would be pretty wild as what you'll end up with is something probably more smoothly organic in appearance with various equipment, and "hardware" protruding from points on the surface layer. Also something of a hatch or implied hatch and the sensors as you pointed out. It would look pretty weird and with your imagination aesthetically interesting I wager
first: remember that you need my permission, as this is copyrighted material.
second: greenstuff is seriously overrated (and overpriced). I recommend some other epoxy putty, like magic sculpt or milliput.
Gah, I dont think there can ever be a tutorial that can quite capture his stupidly good deigning skills, and put them into simple step by steps, though we all can hope! Nice work as per usual. I don't think I've seen any of your mechs with flexible armour plates like that before, looks ace, I'm glad you nailed it first time (if it was!)
