I would not advise you to watch or read, because all this hodgepodge leaves solely on tragedy and forcing ... Common Sense and Consistent Logic in the "Muv-Luv" universe are simply absent: 1) they learned to build hefty combat robots back in the 70s, but, given the expected progress in electronics, for 30+ years they have not been able to establish the assembly of drones as an alternative

2) the space system for destroying reinforcements for BETA from the Moon was rebuilt a long time ago, but by the beginning of the main events they had not made an orbital weapon against aliens on the surface of the Earth

3) nuclear engines appeared back in the 50s, and the "Alternatives" plan assumes interstellar flight, but the weapon actually did not develop in any way for confrontation with the invaders - only in "Eclipse" and "Day After" rail guns appear

4) TSF pilots have exoskeletons, but the infantry and special forces do not have these very useful pieces

5), etc.

In addition, this is a very dull World, because with the destruction of the countries of Eurasia, the United States has become an unconditional and absolute hegemon, who, simply, will never again have a worthy opponent.

>>19740189
>There's no niche for them other than clearing buildings and tight streets
The exoskeleton, especially the advanced one, allows the use of powerful weapons and greatly increases the mobility of the infantry. Considering that the enemy is extremely dangerous alien monsters, against which standard infantry weapons are ineffective, equipping soldiers with such equipment is vital for survival.
>>
>>19740202
Standard weapons do work on the soldier and warrior classes iirc. And tank classes are suv/truck sized, so they don't fill this niche.

>>19740281

Requires a huge amount of resources and well-trained pilots

In addition, if it is possible to create combat robots the size of a house, then mass production of exoskeletons using already known technology should not be a problem.

>>19740254
>so they don't fill this niche
Due to heavy weapons, infantry in exoskeletons can cope with such an enemy and, in addition, get the ability to quickly retreat in case of a pleasantness and not be devoured by BETA, unlike crews of armored vehicles or ordinary soldiers

Bro, do you even know what the exos are armed with? 8 (roughly) arm sized missiles and a .50 rotary MG, right? Now, explain to me how purely bipedal, what are basically single man, uparmored technicals, are supposed to do against a destroyer wave, or grapplers, or massive tank swarms, or a fortress class. It just doesn't seem like a smart idea to devote resources to using exos for anything but human v human point defense or eradication of BETA at less than 3 meters tall. Putting exos on the frontline is just a waste of human life and resources that could've been pooled into TSF programs. I feel like, maybe, just maybe you're forgetting the scale of BETA hordes, 50. and 8 micro missiles is gonna do jack and shit against a good 25% of any given BETA swarm. Even then, I'm unsure it's even a good idea to send them against tank class, which supposedly compose almost half of the swarm, so by sheer numbers, and the fact that the A-10, a TSA specifically designed to wipe out tank class by the thousands, was made makes it seem that Exos aren't really for BETA. Sure, the exos exist and are talked about, it just feels like merely an intermediate for TSFs and infantry/IFV combat, even then, no way it can replace them.
Oh, and I can't forget, they're introduced as methods of escape for TSF pilots, before Resurrection and War Ensemble. Idk man, the lore's all there, but I really don't blame you for ignoring it or just not even seeing this shit.
>>
>>19740357
>But they are not an opponent for BETA
Tanks and SPAAGs are plenty capable against them. Play Faraway Dawn.
>mass production of exoskeletons using already known technology should not be a problem
Just because it's possible doesn't mean it's economical. The alternatives provide far more bang for your buck.
>Due to heavy weapons, infantry in exoskeletons can cope with such an enemy
The heaviest weapons they carry are M2s and Javelin-sized missiles, and they don't have a lot of space for ammo. They're completely defenseless against anything larger than Tank-class BETA.
>the ability to quickly retreat
Exoskeletons are slower than tanks.
>>
>>19740202
>but the question about the army remains valid

If I gave Joe the machinegunner an exoskeleton I would just put him with the exoskeleton squad and make him do exoskeleton things. Now, you would say "just make Big Dog drones carry your stupid MG and give all the Joes an exoskeleton each" but the cost of one of those drones and their manufacturing/parts/supply/technical maintenance lines could be used to clothe and feed 3 times a day with slop and a side of synthetic orange juice, a platoon of Joes who can do more than just carry MGs and bags and thus upkeep the bottom-rung tasks. Anything more complicated than that is considered an addition to the overall logistical load which will just suck more people into maintenance roles. In the end for each exoskeleton Joe you'll need two mechanics and it just keeps rolling from there.

A Grappler would be a boss fight for an exoskeleton squad which kind of limits their capabilities. Even the jumpjet-equipped types are going to be struggling trying to reach the regular Laser-class on the field unless they just happen to be in the vicinity where the Lasers poke out of their stupid worm taxi-dug holes. Yeah, you need 'em to kill infantry BETA in tight quarters in contested areas but that's when you're stupid like Japan which fucked up their evacuation plan or you're at the second Yokohama Battle where everything has gone FUBAR and BETA are in ur base swiggety swoogeting their way down to the Reactor hidden underground. Exoskeletons are not meant for massed set-piece battles in the first place.

This. What would be the F-23, a highly agile anti beta melee machine, is far from what a post Alternative V world needs. A long range rifle-main TSF tuned for anti-TSF combat.

Based, I loved TDA too. Way better pacing than Alt with insane high points that easily match some of the best Alt moments.
But of course, Alt's entirely different in terms of scale. TDA is about the ragged remnants of humanity who can't even scrape together enough ammo for one hive invasion with nearly the entire remaining military while Alternative has really massive and impressive operations.
Anyway, does anyone have a translation or summary of the TSFIA story of kurogane?

How exactly did all these people get injured and lose limbs? Yes I know it was the Beta attack on Yokohama base, but what specifically could've caused these injuries?

>>
>>19740724
Every government is pretty shit, but most of them have been crippled, destroyed, or otherwise hamstrung by the BETA invasion. The USA is more or less unique among them in that it does an excellent job of maintaining its power and status at the expense of literally everyone else. The distaste probably also seems more pronounced because there aren't a lot of American characters in Muv-Luv to bring their perspectives to the table outside of Major Walken. I guess there's Will Collins, but he's not terribly compelling as an MC also, he doesn't last very long and spends most of his time in the spotlight being generally clueless.

There are a lot of possibilities. Yokohama had facilities on the surface. Not to mention that TSF pilots don't always die; some ended up burning through multiple TSFs because they ejected but were still able to fight and got into another one. There's also powered exoskeletons, infantry with guns and other small arms, the single-minded focus that the BETA attacked with rather than aiming for total extermination, and so on.

>>19744564
Amiami or HLJ, depends if I want to use the storage option of the latter.

Still, if you want A3 figures you have to get them from second hand stores, this Berkut and Blackwidow I got them from JP Yahoo Auctions using Buyee for around 4500 yen each.
I'm still missing a Rafale...

Anyways, the Blackwidow is a bit shittier than expected, as it does not even have an abdominal joint, just a giant peg that connects the top and bottom of the figure. Also, it is not accurate to the actual design, as it is supposed to be able to store 2 weapons in each shoulder and this figure can only store 1. The model kit is accurate on this regard.
The jump units have much less range of movement than I expected and they can get obstructed by the weapons that you store in the shoulders.

The Berkut is a much nicer figure, smoother in joints and flexibility. However, the pegs for the jump units are kinda stiff and I'm afraid I'll break them if I use too much force to try to fully insert them in the connectors.

Balance is also a bitch, both have a hard time to stand up, they definitely need a display base to pose them midair or something.

They didn't get a feeling of true despair at the hands of the BETA yet. The individual soldiers like Walken are bros but their governments still treat it as a game since they are save from the BETA. Even if the rest of the world is wiped out the USA would be semi-secure until potential new Hives in Africa grew so big their tunnels would actually reach the mainland.
>>

I don't know but it's gone either way. Since they were lazy and just put the kickstarter build into the 20th box I'm pretty sure it's gone there too. Basicially if you want the original ost you need to for old releases that are all not getting sold anymore.

What are the chances we get TDA tier VN except its set after the ending of MLA? Kinda like an epilogue for all the surviving characters of TE/MLA/SM? I know we got some TSFIA issues that are similar in vein (Pissing Metal/Heritage of Valkyries/Valkyries Hereafter)

in TSFIA Yui's combat instructor sanada kozou meets back up with her during the invasion but is already injured so he pulls a gandalf and stays behind to let the girls escape

in TM The girls are saved by his entire squad and nobody is injured at all, he just tells them where they should go and hands Yui his TSF knife since they're unarmed which makes her go on a mental rant about how much it means that he would divert resources away from his own mission for their sake.

in fairness to age the "cropped" CGs are actually rerenders from the original assets and are in some stupid huge resolution (you can see more horizontally in the drunk party scene for example), and internally in the game data they are even bigger and have more visible than the original 800x600 CGs so it's not like they just chopped the existing CGs and called it a day. they're just retarded and presented it in 16:9 in software despite having MUCH more in the actual CG data itself (visible in the gallery)

unironically it's because Ayamine ate up all the upskirt quota allowed by CERO so there was none left for Sumika.

That one upskirt appears in a fairly serious scene where it doesn't belong and just breaks the tone. It makes complete sense why they got rid of it, it's a stylistic choice. All the other upskirts appear in comedic scenes.
>>19752292
Those are actual improvements and ruin their narrative, since they want to be mad constantly and are actively looking for a reason to hate on age at any point in time.
>>
>>19752307
I hate the "more consistent lore". I think it's silly for the shogunate to command the kind of sense of godlike worship and duty that the actual originally intended imperial family did, and that the new politically correct lore is a step back.

Read the Codex bro. The G-bombs severely underperformed and most of the BETA who didn't get hit by the blast simply died for no apparent reason.
if I'm not wrong, they're implying that Sumika stole a ton of G-bomb reaction energy to punch a hole to Extra, and the BETA Superior/Superordinate/Foreman directed the withdrawal on purpose because it was finally taking humanity as a semi-serious obstacle that needed to be studied.

most of the money went to the dev work of building rUGP 7.0 (which is now being dumped for the new TDA engine topkek) with the new UI and autosave functions and whatever, making PS Vita ports and getting them approved by snoy and then published physically, the new translations of ML and photons (cost more than expected because they had to throw out ixwreck's work entirely), making the 18+ patch (cost as much as the entire localization itself somehow and ate up months of time that was supposed to be spent making PS Vita ports because age devs are incompetent), physical rewards like ordering new print runs of takemis and raptors, making plushies, T-shirts and jackets, printing codexes, etc., giving kickstarter their pound of flesh and so on.

>>19756963
ML and âge were already dying and somewhere around schwarzesmarken Kouki started taking a break to shitpost on twitter fulltime, which he never announced until the break was over. Exogularity was released in 2017 and was a way for them to "look at all this cool lore we will never make into games because our company is fucking dead." 14 pages of it are dedicated entirely to where the story of their dead mobile game would have gone. It just so happens they were also bought up in 2017 so they suddenly had money again. But apparently Kouki had to bitch and moan for the right holders to actually do anything since he pretty much organized the still breathing event by himself and handpicked his new development staff. The fat guy that always shows up in streams now was in kiminozo's credits under special thanks 20 years ago

So this is where the MuvLuv thread was hiding! Never been to /m/ before since I don't consider myself much of a mech guy, but I got into the series about a month ago starting with Extra, and i hadn't seen anyone talking about it elsewhere. I know i need to be cautious to avoid spoilers, but it's good to know there's a general to post in once I'm done. Finished chapter 6 of MLA last night. Meiya and Yuuhi got me in my feels. Very excited to continue. I have heard that shit goes down in chapter 7, which is to be expected given where the story is.
>>
>>19757674
Which version are you reading? The uncensored original or the heavily censored official western release?
>>
>>19757690
I got the download from F95zone. Under version it says:
>Steam edition + Director's Cut 18+ DLC
I was under the impression the only difference was the inclusion of h scenes? Which of course i want, which is why i sure as hell wasn't gonna pay for it on steam (I'll buy figures later). But the way you wrote
>heavily censored
Are you telling me there's a difference in dialogue too?? I guess that wouldn't surprise me, given it was translated in 2016 via kickstarter, and i noticed a few meme phrases like
>thirsty
>intolerant of our diversity
Lemme know. If the dialogue is altered in my version, I'll switch
>>
>>19757729
since when was "thirsty" a meme phrase jfc
>>
>>19757729
Dialogue has some changes, nothing too major. You're missing out on suit nipples, upskirts, and a small handful of music tracks. The CG's are also cropped. Plus the adult scenes which can be patched in with the restoration patch but are still kept censored.

>But the way you wrote >heavily censored
it's a shitpost, mate. If you really want to know the details, the steam version with 18+ patches are still missing compared to the 2003/2006 versions
>one Sumika upskirt (but all the ayamine upskirt CGs are still fine. Don't ask, nobody knows)
>nipple shadows in the skintight bodysuit sprites in Unlimited and Alternative
>two copyrighted music tracks that would have gotten them sued
>Engrish voices in a couple of scenes in Alternative, which got redone with actual English VAs because the devs had an autistic fit when told that the gaijins were laughing at the very serious scene
and have as extra compared to the 2003/2006 versions
>updated lore to be more consistent between Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative because they changed their minds about some things between 2003-06
>More voice acted scenes for Takeru which makes a particular couple of unskippable read sequences a lot more bearable
>An extra action insert song sequence to fill in what was in the original an abrupt timeskip
>all the OPs
>An actually functioning gallery and chapter select function

Also ML is now widescreen because age updated it in 2006 to match the presentation of MLA (made it widescreen, added moving mouths and removed the textbox background) and are autistic about wanting it to look that way, in 2006 this was considered futuristic. You can still see the full CGs by panning up and down in the gallery though, and they were actually rescanned at high resolution from the original assets instead of just being the original 800x600 CGs slashed in half so some of them actually have a bit more horizontal detail. It's not as though the 4:3 versions were actually the full CGs either, a lot of them are actually much taller and wider than what was shown in 2003 and you won't see the full thing ever without extracting the original data from the newer versions/using the pan function in steam version
>>
>>19757729
>If the dialogue is altered in my version
The dialogue altered was a few lines in Muv-Luv Unlimited to change references to the Imperial house to the Shogunate, because in between MLU and MLA age suddenly pussied out and realized they didn't want to get involved in the IRL controversy over whether or not a woman could be emperor of Japan. Those changes were in Japanese too. I think it's fucking retarded that they would change such a huge plot point just for political correctness, but the short of it is the only version to have Meiya's family as the imperial house is the 2003 one.
The translation is fine and didn't censor any dialogue, people just got mad because it didn't use very specific meme phrases from the fan translation like "noble confidant" and also because they were in total disbelief that a teenage boy would use casual words like "dude".
>>
>>19757943
the steam/20th box version also has a couple of extra CGs, mostly Yuuko related IIRC
>>
>>19757729
there's some schizo or two in these threads whose sole life purpose is to spend all day complaining about the missing suit nipples and widescreen of the "heavily censored" official western release technically a multilanguage Japanese release and is the version that age put in their 20th anniversary collection for nips. this is also their excuse for not removing mosaics in the 18+ patch)
it's understandable to be upset about those but derailing the thread to be about nothing but that all day every day for literally years when everybody else already knows about it and finished complaining long ago is some actual mental illness shit.
you're better off just not engaging with them and deciding for yourself if the changes matter to you.
>>
>>19757960
Age cut a fuck ton of shit for political correctness. There was supposed to be more focus on the effects of the tsunami in the aftermath of Sadogashima, but that got cut because of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, which also fucked over Kashiwagi's story role. There was supposed to be more focus on the rebels' perspective in the coup arc, which got cut because after the 2005 London bombings they didn't want to be seen as supporting terrorism (my headcanon is that at least parts of this perspective is what we eventually got in the manga version). And there was that time they delayed the game because chinks and gooks were throwing a shitfit about Japanese war crimes again and they didn't want to release a game with nationalistic themes in that environment.
>>
>>19758093
>my headcanon is that at least parts of this perspective is what we eventually got in the manga version
That's not your headcanon. That's exactly why they did that for the Manga. It also introduced Komaki, who was so well received that she got her VN debut shortly afterwards in TDA 02.

Thank you very much anon. These are the details i was looking for, and i really appreciate your laying it out for me like this. I just torrented the original version from pirate bay, and was trying to run it via daemon tools lite (which always seems to be a hassle),and it keeps crashing ever minute. But now that i know the pros of the steam version i already have far outweigh the cons, i can stop fucking around with this shit.
>No suit nipples
A terrible shame, but
>Updated English voice acting
That alone makes up for it. I couldn't even understand some of the engrish in the opening scene of the original version when i tested it out.
>2 missing tracks
Sucks, but not the end of the world. If you have any more info on what the copyright issues were, im curious and would love to hear.
>Imperial house vs shogunate stuff
Very interesting! I did wonder about why Yuuhi is the shogun instead of the emperor, and had to look up a refresher on fuedal Japan to remind myself how things worked back then. I chalked it up to the fact that the Shogun was the defacto leader and the emperor more of a figure head. Regardless, none of that is much of an issue.
>it's understandable to be upset about those but derailing the thread to be about nothing but that all day every day for literally years when everybody else already knows about it and finished complaining long ago is some actual mental illness shit.

and there was a song in MLU that I can't find anywhere now but it was too similar to a song in the Big O soundtrack, which has never even been in any official OST or any version of the game since 2003.
Initial D pastiche and Klendathu Drop pastiche are still in there so I'm not sure what exactly the metric for lawsuitworthy versus acceptable parody is.

Rude, the Muv-Luv Alternative English is actually quite good as far as Japanese-accented English speech goes and is even 95% grammatically correct.

It's still extremely comedic and ruins the tone of the scene. It's something you look up after playing just for fun, really.

Since Age and the Muv-Luv is slowly dying in a painful and agonizing manner since TE, SM and TDA tanked in Japan, what do you guys think the company shouldndo to hit the goldmine once again? Personally, I'd go for Nasuverse route and let writers who are fan of the series to write their own story.Or, instead of advertising a new series as a "spinoff", just make a new trilogy that is somehow connected to the OG but had new characters altogether.

They were and Kouki has been going on about how he wants fans to write shit for years, that whole story lab shit they have planned is basicially an offical discord server for people to write fanfiction with each other in.

Honestly the real problem âge has is simply that they never should have gone all into muv luv. They should have not fucked up elven blaze development. They should have kept making random eroge. They should have hired writers that have ideas that aren't just muv luv. the 9000th spinoff and sequel of a VN from 2004 is simply to niche to work out financially. Obviously they keep trying to make the franchise go viral with anime to generate a billion sales but those shows always suck dick and I have 0 reason the believe the 3rd try will work this time.

You're right anon, a song that multiple people independently realized sounded like a ripoff of a Ricky Martin song isn't actually one, there are no copyright issues and actually they removed a song and paid for a replacement solely to make an anonymous shitposter on an egyptian parchment origami imageboard mad about it.
>>
>>19759136
The song was updated in the Muvluv win7 edition in Jun of 2012. The youtube vid was released in Oct 2012. They copied so many songs and OSTs in their games as well. There's no reason they had to pick this song to update if the others remained. So yes, I think I'm right.

Partially because age dwaddled too long on TE. How many years did it spend as a Tech Gian publication before jumping to novel-only then to the anime and finally to the VN?

Why does he have to ask for permission to write it. Cant he just like publish it as a fanfic and let age decide if its good enough to be considered canon?
>>
>>19764154
In his case his hand in TDA is strong enough that, were it any other person doing the writing, it wouldn't even matter, but Wei Luxin writing a fanfic ending for TDA would actually threaten the sales for a TDA ending written by Kouki, especially if fans decided that his ending is better.

But since he originally got the jig by writing fanfiction that later got officialized, he probably just doesn't want to do anything that can be construed as disrespecting Kouki, now that he's no longer writing for TDA. The dude seriously has enough material that if age officialized it all they could have new TSFiAs and Chronicles for 10 more years. If he rebranded all the ML-specific terminology and sent it to a publishing house, we'll probably have a new LN series.

Honestly I wonder why a TSFiA Collection was never floated as a backer milestone, a good number of people would vomit hard cash to have a collection of the stories, especially since thanks to the 2013-2015 crackdown on the (Chinese) scanlation scene IIRC, the TSFiA of those times are essentially lostech to the current ML fanbase. Then again nearing the final quarter of its run the stories started re-regurgitating scenes from the original trilogy, TE, and the upcoming SM, so by then there weren't that many original one-shot stories left.

The same could be said of the Lunatic Dawn/Allied Strategy collection, but at least that had the excuse of being Comiket-exclusive and age Fanclub-reserved material.
