Please be aware that the content of this mod is unfinished and all sounds, sprites etc. are still subject to change and may not be my intended finished assets. Still by all means feel free to speak your mind if you think something can be improved in any way!

Prices of everything in the mod are random and unbalanced at the moment because I haven't bothered to change them, I figured it was better to just get them out there for you guys to play with.

If you want to play against the Crobos just back up your activities .ini and then delete the last section. There is an activities .ini that loads with the Crobos that will replace the last game type so that they spawn in skirmish mode.

*Friendly Neighbourhood Mod - B22 compatible version here: download/file.php?id=24800
If this doesn't work, you'll have to go into the Crobotech files and replace all lines that say "Base.rte/Actors/Coalition/TorsoB.bmp" with "Coalition.rte/Actors/Soldier/TorsoB.bmp"*

OH HELL YES.

EDIT: Comments and such to come.

EDIT: Everything is nearly perfect, me thinks, except for the LR 5000. It diffidently needs a power boost, but everything else seems pretty balanced and just about right.

Man. The one thing I wanted was that crab. But, there's not use crying over spilled milk. I'll start on this pack and come back with comments.

One thing that irks me is that fading red explosion background on the laser. It being stationary and with an odd-looking texture just doesn't look right. Love the pack, by the way.

OK well to start:

I love it! Its beautifully sprited and coded...
But they all seem a little... weak. Increase their jointstrength, and maybe give them higher gibimpulse and gibwoundlimits, that would make them better. It just seemed to me that they lost thier arms, legs, and armor too easily to be CRobos.

In response to that, I'd say that we've all become too used to the DarKlones and their overpowered massive dudes. I remember that the first Crobo was a light aerial unit designed for maneuverability, not a hulking titan designed to body-slam. While the Crobos are powerful, they are also balanced.
Also, oh-em-gee oh-gee-em gohg-em this is a beautiful mod.

Sweet a demo, I thought you were going to individually pick out candidates!

You my sir, are fair. Also, this is the best icon of a balanced super-mod!

Oh hey, win.

Haven't tried this yet, but based on the last versions this will be epic. I've always liked the Crobo implementation; the weapons feel so "thumpy" 8) .

I look forward to the completion of the rest of the pack.

Would it be possible to make the jetpacks a tad stronger? My CRobo flies slow even with a single weapon.

The heavy ones fly slower, it's a balancing effect.

Anywho, the Laser Rifle pierces and often kills a clone or severs limbs before exploding. I'm not sure if super-light bullet mass can counter force but it might be a good idea. Also, it makes dropships/rockets fly way off course.

The crawlpaths are excellent, actually. Those don't need too much work. The limbpaths for the crab crawler need some tweaking, it overextends I think. And its gun needs a smidge of balancing, it exerts a lot of force when the shell explodes.

Not sure if it's your intention as well, but the heavies' legs gib pretty easily. About as easily as the Heavy Coalition's.

That's about it for now, the visuals are excellent.
