A lot of inspiration is coming from there. I do have to be careful though as the people who own Mechwarrior/Battletech are a bit edgy due to Harmony Gold always being on their case. I'd have to say the most important thing coming from Mechwarrior (Probably more Battletech, but whatev's) is the scale and how the mech function.

Mechwarrior 3 is definitely my favorite looks wise, gameplay wise I'd say 2 and Mechwarrior Online (The new MW that is in Open Beta right now one MWOMercs.com) is rising through the ranks of worthiness.

I'm also using stuff like Armored Core, Mechwarrior, Robotech, Borderlands, Halo, Phantom Crash, Command & Conquer, Freelancer, Battlecruiser Millenium, Lost Planet, Gears of War, Minecraft, APB, etc. as sources of inspiration.

Just like every slightly futuristic game or movie now a days like avatar, halo, starcraft, and more are you going to be using the falcon?
User avatar #15 to #14 - Shaostoul [OP](11/05/2012) [-]
The falcon?

It's hard to appropriately describe what it shall be, I guess the best way would be to just wait and see.
User avatar #21 to #16 - Shaostoul [OP](11/05/2012) [-]
Aircraft propelled by blades like that would be iffy business on the planet, extreme weather conditions. Going for kind of a realistic feel. Especially environment wise. Think of metro 2033, but instead of a filter, you're required to maintain a still suit.

I'm working on a game too, but not as big as yours... I've yet to learn how to code, I'm thinking of Gamemaker :/ but I still have classes at the moment so nothing is getting done...
User avatar #46 to #45 - evilwheatleycore (12/10/2012) [-]
Can you maybe put in one of my characters? I don't care which but I'd like to see them in 3d :3
User avatar #47 to #46 - Shaostoul [OP](12/11/2012) [-]
One of the top right ones would be not too difficult to make. If you give me a more detailed and larger image of one of them, it'll be tons easier to go off of. Pixel art is kind of hard to work off of in a 3D environment. The traditional "T" stance and a side view would make it a lot easier. Do that and I'll see about making one 3D.
#50 to #47 - evilwheatleycore (12/11/2012) [-]
I did the best I could. I would have post a hand drawn version had I a scanner, so here he is. (MS paint skills)


I just thought of something, maybe after (if you can) he's 3D I can get the model to someone who can make it so I could pose him about in Gmod! Which means Source Filmaker.....
User avatar #51 to #50 - Shaostoul [OP](12/11/2012) [-]
I'll make him 3D, but I'll let someone else rig him.
User avatar #53 to #52 - Shaostoul [OP](12/13/2012) [-]
Been messing with it off and on. I have a person, but none of the spikey stuff.
User avatar #54 to #53 - evilwheatleycore (12/13/2012) [-]
Cool, the spikes on the legs are arching flames, the rest is self explanatory
User avatar #55 to #54 - Shaostoul [OP](12/13/2012) [-]
What is he? Is there something I could base him off of? The spikes being arching flames... does that mean his legs are on fire?
User avatar #57 to #55 - evilwheatleycore (12/13/2012) [-]
And it's not as much his legs are on fire more they are fire, they are supposed to be shaped in a bit of a birdish fashion, like thick flamingo, fiery, legs.
User avatar #56 to #55 - evilwheatleycore (12/13/2012) [-]
Yeah, he's mainly based (as in only his head's design) on a character of the same name, Abyss, from Marvel VS Capcom 2. The rest is an original design, like I said I'd have been better of have a drawing on hand, if anything comes to mind he's just a large muscular guys with his right arm far bigger than the other, blackened, and has three claws instead of five fingers.

Sorry I couldn't do better on it...
User avatar #58 to #56 - Shaostoul [OP](12/13/2012) [-]
It's okay, it's just hard to come up with stuff when it's simply drawn. A bit more description makes it a lot easier. So right hand is a claw and left is a normal hand?
User avatar #49 to #47 - evilwheatleycore (12/11/2012) [-]
Alright, I'll see what I can do.
User avatar #48 to #45 - Shaostoul [OP](12/11/2012) [-]
As for the gamemaker bit. If you plan on selling it, I suggest making your own engine. With a 'simple' isographic view, I imagine it wouldn't be too hard. I don't know the licensing of gamemaker, so that'd be something to check on. If you can produce a game, and not have to pay a lot of money to sell it, I'd use that engine.

A goal of my video game is that I want to prove that you can use cheaper products to produce quality games. You don't need a million dollar program for something amazing. Just determination, persistence, and imagination.

(Sorry it took so long to reply, my computer had a heart attack and a stroke at the same time and I've yet to get it fixed)
I never got to finish this, and I don't realistically see it ever being finished due to lack of time, no connections with anyone that can code, and it being over lapped by more interesting ideas. The more iconic characters from this will definatly find their way into the other projects, but I'm far from ever releasing a game.

Need music too?
User avatar #7 to #5 - Shaostoul [OP](11/05/2012) [-]
I certainly do! That's the one thing I was unsure of how to go about. So if you do want to give it a shot, I'd be more than willing to include it. Any style music is acceptable. A good desert kind of theme would be awesome to start with. Something someone could listen to while 'trucking' along in a convoy.
User avatar #25 to #7 - opjoopie (11/06/2012) [-]
Alright man. I'm in a metalband myself, wanting to promote it everywhere, wherever I can. Could give it a listen at our site, it's politically themed thrashcore. You may like it. Or not :P 3 songs are at the right

Awesome! Well I look forward to the weekend then! I'm actually just about to head to work, so I guess we'll see where this goes for the next couple hours.

The guns should have a HUD, a simplistic one not a cheesy futuristic one
User avatar #44 to #43 - Shaostoul [OP](11/19/2012) [-]
Care to elaborate?
