Mechs are 4x size. Damage values are roughly 4x the base weapon. Mechs always fire at your aim regardless of which way the weapon is pointed. It mostly works but looks funny sometimes as bullets shoot at angle from gun. Rocketron and Flakatron can fire primary and secondary at the same time. It's better to link Linkatron than it is for Linkatron to link you (this is true for all 'link' vehicles).

Friggin incredible, man! Great work! The sounds work great too. Now 20 years later I can still hear Mega Man X sound effects to keep my old game nostalgia alive.

Now we need a giant tank for them to hop into.

Also this will make the proportions on MasterBath more of a mystery. Are the characters mini? Or are the mechs normal sized? Or is the bathroom big?

I can’t wait to play them. Thanks for doing these.

I pushed a minor update this morning. I don't think anybody downloaded it yesterday but just in case please download again if you did.

I fixed how the mechs spawn so they don't need special vehicle factories. I realized the requirement for special vehicle factories wouldn't work with the randomizer, and these things are probably going to end up in a randomizer.

When you add them to a map using the editor, they will show up halfway submerged in the terrain. This is OK and expected. They have weird mesh setup to make them work so this happens.

Badass!!! Now they just need that rocket boost jump as a dodge jump.

Yeah, I think so. They are definitely crazy-op and not for serious competitive gameplay, but might be fun on a randomizer

It kills players in one shot. Feels like SSR.

I'm really curious of the balance. I'm sure it's totally wrong! Shockatron might be the weakest one. I nerfed its health anyway because of it has instant fire shot and not completely helpless against a flyer.

During testing, bots murder me with Linkatron, and I murder everything with flakatron. It's dps probably needs to go down lol. I think flakatron can kill a core in ~2 seconds.
