1. We've removed some functionality from SMD in preparation for a migration to new forum software. We expect to make the move before the end of August.

    KORTHEX - The Deepspace Mech v1.5

    A badass, extremely detailed, 150-meter-tall humanoid robot with a ton of fun features!

    1. Overhauled systems and removed remaining outdated blocks

      DeepspaceMechanic
      After the Weapons Update, and the subsequent removal of the integrity mechanic, the possibility arose to overhaul every system of this mech.

      DeepspaceMechanic
      The AMS turrets are no longer manually-controllable. On one hand, there's no need for that, on the other hand, if the manual control of larger turrets meant to be used that way can interfere with the AI's ability to aim at missiles, than the AMS turrets would be worthless in combat with the "manual control" option turned on in their Bobby AI computer.
    4. Fixed shield integrity and power imbalance

      Fixed the low shield recharger integrity, as well as the power imbalance when using the turret arm (in the "New systems" variant).
