Dumping pictures of Code Fairy machines
Late UC doesn't have this problem yet
>>20404572Looks like some NAOKI garbage
>>20404589Kiyoshi Takigawa designed it not Naoki
>>20404577that's EWACS yo
>>20404602I keep getting Code Fairy and Witch of Mercury mixed up
>>20404581Skinny kampfer is nice
>>20404572>>20404577>>20404581Is this junichi akutsu
>>20404718Isn't he busy with the new SEED stuff?
>>20404720probably, but it wouldn't be the first time sunrise had an artist working on multiple projects.
>>20404581I really like this design.Hope it's made into a kit.
>>20404572UC my ass.
Nice Buildshit designs.
>>20405068Nope, these are official UC designs, not 'Buildshit'
>>20404572Looks like a medieval AU.
>>20404581Not my Titania.
>>20404572That's a 10/10 Gundam design for like G or Wing, but not for the UC.
>>20404572>You know, they could be worsethey could've been stuck in a better game for example
>>20404577>It literally has mirage colloid in UCI hate the entire line of Riders so much. Undermines the fuck out of every other OYW Gundam.
>>20404572Fucking retarded design, doesn't look like something from the OYW at all
>>20405328Those are G-4 based designs.
I think these could be fine for late UC, but One Year War having these kinds of Gundam is just too much.
>>20405377SamePic related is probably the absolut limit to what I can concieve for a OYW MS. The tech still hasn't developed enough yet
>>20405387that's more a 0081 looking Gundam for me
>>20404572>>20404574>crown>"bow"trying to be not too on the nose, huh...
>>20404577I like how the retarded morons in charge of banrise can't decide whether the federation is 10 years behind on MS tech or if they're 10 years ahead. They flipflop all over the place.
>>20404718No see >>20404594
>>20405442In 0080 the federation tech is 100 years ahead, after stealing Zeonic tech and kidnapping Zeonic engineers
>>20405480Then operation stardust happened following solomon base and the colony drop making the federation go do major budget cuts putting all their funds into the titans
>>20405480Databooks have mentioned the entire reason why the federation absorbed zeon engineers and let AE buy zeonic is because they realized they were way behind on tech
>>20405482Exactly. The money all went to the Augusta Laboratory where NT-1, RX-78-4, RX-78-5, BD-2 and 3 base units, and the Pale Riders came from.
>>20405442>MSV-R says that the Federation only thought they catched up to Zeon cuz Zeon willingly gave up their shitty assets to them but kept the good stuff and the great stuff such as their Not!AGE Device was hidden away from even fucking Gihren
>>20405547Wait what was the notAGE device
>>20405498And the mudrock
>>20404572looks like the final form of some modern kamen rider
>>20405554Memories fuzzy, but they essentially had a super 3D printer with an Ai that would take some designs and spit out corrections based on data they accumulated on the prototypes, then they'd continue the process until they were satisfied with the results.
>>20405554Basically Kycillia feared that Gihren would use Newtypes against her so she made a new unit of oldtypes and cybernewtypes called the Chimera Corps, they were supported by the absolute best engineers Zeon had, a unit called Hydra. Turns out every single MSV from Zeon's side was made by Hydra, each suit taking barely over 3 days to make. This system was so good that a high schooler could make a MS from scratch with no problem. Just a little bit of info leaked from Hydra was enough to let the EFSF catch up to the public image of Zeon's tech.
>>20405416They are literally named after the four horsemen anon, and with Pale Rider being the rider of death had a bunch of variants that was used from both the Federation and Zeon.
>>20405068Take your meds.
>>20405576Fucking stupid shit.
>>20405668Well between magical particle that blocks things and 3D printer I think the notAGE device is more realistic.
>>20405668UC Gundam manga suffers from the same problem as Star Wars EU. Lots of cool stuff but also a shitton of stuff that craps on the lore by trying to shove in more and more stuff into the OYW>The Act Zaku being a better MS than an upgrade of the RX-78's upgrade>The entire Pale Rider line and everything around it>The entirety of Gundam Katana with dumb shit like GP02-2, sentient MS, etc>Twilight Axis>The Astaroth virus At least Gundam Thunderbolt had the decency to be an AU-UC.
>>20405700Was the act Zaku that powerful? It’s specs were practically identical to the mass production type gelgoog
>>20405387If a suit looks and functions more absurdly than the Zeong then I think it's out of place for the OYW
>>20405626I know that, why do you think I even posted that horseman picture. I'm saying it's too literal with the White rider portrayal.
>>20405915Act Zaku ver. POTENTIAL UNLEASHED MAX POWER dabs on Gelgoogs
>>20406061Mallet’s zaku is a special case, he’s crazy
>>20406064Basically the limiter is placed on the Act Zaku so normies can pilot it. Take it off and its a Newtype/Druggy machine that runs circles around the RX-78 Bst
>>20406061>>20406073The NT-1 Alex also had magnetic coating and it didn't have a limiter by default since it was implied it was being given to Amuro for final customization and Christina found it too sensitive for herself, right?
>>20406073Note that the RX-78-5 Bst already has magnet coating too. >>20406089Correct, not sure why they didn't place any limiters on it. Maybe due to the small window of time they had since the Cyclops Team was always on the Alex's heels.
>>20406107NT-1 seemed like a bit of a rushed job. I mean, the machine's construction was more or less physically complete, but still required some vague "testing" for its software, maybe because of the panoramic cockpit and control systems. Even if testing at Side 6 went smoothly without interruptions, they would probably only be able to deliver the NT-1 to the White Base -maybe- just right before the battle of A Baoa Qu.
>>20406122And again this also meant Bernie died for nothing
>>20405668He's exaggerating, and it's just trying to explain how they made like 50 different Gelgoogs in the 5 seconds between it being rolled out and the war ending.The real silly part about Return of Johnny Ridden is them bringing back the biological weapon from RFTA for one of the dumbest master plans in all of UC.
>>20406164You are referring to ASTAROTH right? I remember in the recent rewrites of that Side story that the only group that even considered using it for real were a pack of some of Kycilia's more unstable zealots. What exactly was it going to be used for in RoJR?
>>20406177Forcing all the spacenoids back to Earth and starting over because the guy decided that's the way to end people being butthurt about being forced into space.
>>20406189I thought it was going to be the opposite, unleash it on Earth and then that forces people off Earth into space.
>>20406164I wish I was exaggerating though. MSV-R has like 4 different factions fighting to find the thing, even though it's 0090 and everyone has top of the line super custom MS.
>>20406057Just saying that the mobile suit being too on the nose with the four horsemen is the whole point of the suits under project pale rider. Like if Red Rider with its gaint sword and black rider having scales wasn't too much of a dead giveaway. desu I like how over the top they are even if one can argue them not fitting in early UC.
>>20406235I feel like I should point out that Kamille was a technical high school student and was building junior MS and half ass designed the Zeta Gundam.
>>20406268Char's main mechanic was a loli who I'm pretty sure wasn't even in the double digits.
>>20405498Would a G-8 (RX-78-8) be a Psycommu variant?
>>20406381I think an RX-78-8 was briefly mentioned in m-msv back in 1991/1992 where the other four RX-78 originated (4-7) though it’s unclear if it was ever built or scrapped entirely in favor of the gundam development project
>>20405498>Exactly. The money all went to the Augusta Laboratory where [the most advanced designs of their time] came from.how are they behind in tech again?
Pretty sick designs but feels out of place in early UC. Still great though, and I'm looking forwad to the kits. I hope the red rider gets a kit to complete the set too.
Is there an art gallery for the game or something?
>>20406410By now it'll be explained that SNRI started as a black-budget program, meaning the public never knew about it until Anaheim started to fade. The G-8 could be retconned as SNRI's first suit if they decide to make it a thing
>>20406412Build the thing -> Got robbed or stolen again and again -> tech gap occurs until lost tech is destroyed and retrieved -> build on the more advance scrap -> got robbed and stolen again -> ...
>>20406432what? my UC lore is rusty dumb it down for me
>>20406423Yeah there is, only problem is you can't get good screen caps due to Bamco blocking recording of the game. >>20406417To be fair, a lot of designs in side stories feels out of place in UC. After so many super secret prototypes that pop up in the middle of OYW, you learn to enjoy the dumb and go "wow cool robot".>I hope the red rider gets a kit to complete the set too.Aggressor has been around for awhile iirc and hasn't got any kits for it, White and Black are getting one to promote Code Fairy but I do hope for Red Rider to get a kit one day.
>>20405700Its a mixed bag by a lot of this stuff being non-canon or questionably canon. I'm still grateful that there's a robust expanded universe in a setting versus Star Wars essentially nuking it from orbit.
>>20406061Sauce of the second half?
>>20406539It's all from the "Space, To The End of A Flash" manga. Context is that the battle of A Baoa Qu has just ended, with Zeon troops willingly giving up. As the forces start regrouping and looking for survivors to help, this sore loser launches into battle and starts fighting everyone who gets in his way to 1v1 the RX-78-5
>>20405131Is this fanart? Haven't seen it before
>>20405377>>20405387>>20406043Yeah I feel the same way, looks way out of place, I mean so do the character designs so I guess it isn't surprising>>20405700I didn't mind the Act Zaku ass pull since it was "if we take the limiter off the pilot will die" scenario. Plus that's what happens in the game the manga is based off of so w/e
>>20405320Doesn't Minovsky particles already make visibility incredibly low?
>>20406333To be fair, she was a Newtype on top of being genetically-tampered by Zeon.
>>20407278Not in the visible light range. That's the point of it. Being blurry is the most concentrated amount would do.
>>20407624He draws the Master Archive databooks as well as providing art for the Blazing Shadow and Zeta Gundam Define mangas. His name to fame is the incredibly samey-looking but functional lineart which I guess works well for the databooks to illustrate how the units are related. I've never seen either manga so I have no idea if he does action or other poses well.
>>20406061Fucking stupid bullshit
>>20404572Is the body from Nu?
>make MS look out of place in OYW>still no occult paranormal zeon division trying to summon demons to change the tide of warOh come on nips
>>20409758But they've always had that
>>20404577Id build it without the towers the discs sit on. Id give the discs their own locomotion. Like tau scout things..
>>20409771Not enough, at least return to castle Wolfenstein absurdity like zombies fueled by hate and fanaticism pilots some kind of weird zaku variant
>>20409780His name's Full Frontal
>>20406164>>20406235Haven't been following the manga recently. But it's almost like they have completely forgotten about Astaroth after the Sangre Azul. They are literally making shit up as they go now with 2 macguffins for people to chase after.
>>20409780>zombiesThe zombies are the Gundam fans buying up this shit
>>20409771That time zenon snuck in the original mobile suit gundam show
>>20407296I'm asking about the art, I'm familiar with the MS
>>20409733RX-80PR Pale Rider
>>20404742Same. Really like the colours too.
Better White Rider render
>>20412701in less overpowered terms there's also renders for the GM color variantsLilith's GM Ground
>>20412709Barry's GM Ground
>>20412716Barry's Armored GM which would be neat if it got into the game since it has Maneuver Armor level 2 and the 90mm MG subweapon
Worth buying an old ps4 just for this game?
>>20412818No and this is coming from someone who enjoys it. I would try out Gundam Battle Operation 2 that's free to play and if you like the core gameplay and want more single player content then you can consider paying for the game.
>>20404577>straight up has mirage colloidwhat the actual fuck
>>20412696Remove the crown and it's not a horrible design. Maybe a bit too much, but it's nothing out of the ordinary.But that crown tho. The crown just tips it into build territory.
>>20415040It wouldn't be white rider without thr crown, I mean black rider is blindfolded with two scales. And how is the crown build territory and not the one wing kn it's back like wing Gundam Fenice.
>>20415040I like the crown.
>>20412696What are the retarded wings for? Why couldn't they just give it a anti-beam cloak or something? >rapierfucking retarded>giant bow beam rifleAbsolutely fucking retarded
>>20412696is this thing supposed to be running active during OYW? wtf
>>20404572This just doesn't fit into early UC
>>20406381>>20406410I think the only info there is was that it was some kind of testbed that was actually used as such, being fitted with the head, cannons, backpack and shoulders of a guncannon and never seeing actual combat.
>>20406486>you can't get good screen caps due to Bamco blocking recording of the game.https://www.startech.com/en-us/faq/video-capture-cards-before-you-buy
>>20412701Noooooooo Federation beams are supposed to be pink!
>>20418582They're heat knives.
>>20404572Anything on the Zeek team?
>>20405298>this design in WingAw fuck now that's a missed opportunity. Could have been Relena's Gundam.
>>20418692I hate that I agree with you
>>20417885The bow is a composite weapon, and the 'wing's is a sub arm shield
>>20406137To be fair, that's the point of War in the Pocket. It was a needlessly tragic death that could have been avoided.
>>20419958Ooh, sniper Efreet. Love me some high mobility sniper types.
>>20419965Why is it dragging the body of a junk Xamel behind it? Just to use the cannon? And the mouth tubes on a Dom are weird.
>>20420506Like all recent OYW ground Dom variants it's based on the prototype Dom.
Or actually more specifically I'm sure it's probably considered to be based on the Dom Cannon which is based on the Dom Tropical Test Type which is based on the Prototype Dom.
>>20404574I hate it, sorta.
>>20405387And we are pretty much at the limit with this. It looks like already a Mudrock tier.
>>20404574Dafuq is that a bow? Kinda cool.
>>20404574This just looks ridiculous. Why does it need to turn into a bow to fire a beam rifle when the RX-78-2 basically already perfected it
>>20420506It's half a Gallop and the gun salvaged from the Hildolfr.Basically a Xamel on crack.
>>20422716What makes you think it fires a normal beam rifle? White Rider has a prototype Shekinah that Calvery uses and is would likely turn into a bow to fire a high powered beam while also being able to snipe.
>>20422716I assume that it's heat sinks/dissipaters
>>20422746It also functions from what I’ve seen just like the beam launcher used by the RX-78-4 which alongside the Rx-78-5 are the mobile suits the pale rider series got developed from, seems to be perfected from the flawed overheating experimental launcher (at least until the modified unit 4)
>>20422716because it's a veeeery subtle design and if you look closely you'll notice that they wanted it to look like a medieval knight
>>20422795You are right.The proto-Shekinah used by the White Rider is a failed design (the loading on the MS is too much, plus other beam weapons will be failed to function). The bug got fixed with the production version for Pale Rider Calibur.So according to the description, White Rider's system "ZEUS" is a system to control the Shekinah weapon system. Red Rider's system "Areus" is for the emergency button to shut down "HADES" and to revive the pilot. Black Rider's system "THEMIS" is the prototype AI for the Calibur(s), "Steelyard" for the weapon rack, and the stealth system used by the TITAN MS.Pale Rider's "HADES" is simply the all-in-one of the above.
>>20422746The RX-78-2's rifle is already stated repeatedly to be as powerful as warship's cannon and can oneshot basically everything. What exactly are they adding it by making it even more unwieldy? >>20422795The G04's beam launcher never had an overheating problem, the sub-reactor wasn't powerful/stable enough to sustain Luce's sustained use of the cannon. The first time he used it the G04 ran out of power, the second time the external pack was stated to be unstable and blew up when he used the beam launcher even after the sub reactor went critical.
>>20422746>White Rider has a prototype Shekinah that Calvery usesThe Cavalry in game is inferior to the RX-78-2 and its shekinah is just a beam rifle. Being a prototype for something that's already inferior to the original Gundam isn't very convincing. It's just a shit design
>>20422853Shekinah isn't a "Beam Rifle".It is a Mega Beam Launcher.
>>20422866It is trying to be a beam launcher, but failed.Augusta didn't fixed the bugs, and push both MS to operation after finishing with all the experiments.Team Black Dog got the defective suits and head for the Noisy Fairies.
>>20404572A Gundam weighted by the burden of its crown...>>20404577Looks like a Jegan that went maximum Operator.>>20404581Action Girl Kampfer?
>>20422984Balanced Kampfer. Apparently they thought the kampfer lacked staying power and was a one trick pony (it does and it is). So they turned into into a more general purpose high performance MS.
>>20423375isn't reverse engineering a gimmicky suit to be an all purpose suit counter-effective? why not just use a gelgoog or something?
>>20423380Gelgoog’s were not widely available yet
>>20423407Oh, and the special forces suicide mission MS is? These justifications for le super sekrit retcon MS are dumb
>>20423380It's what they were given apparently so no use whining to Kycillia they weren't given a gelgoog instead. Based on the lineart the main changes seem to be removing the shoulder thrusters, downscaling the back skirt thrusters, removing armor and adding the propellant tanks. So it's probably still very fast and good at hit and runs, but not using so much of it's fuel that it's a suicide machine.
>>20423420Just remember most of zeon’s more experienced pilots were in space and earth was a lost cause at that point so the early production/commander types were more heavily prioritized towards them, there wasn’t any time to make ground gelgoog’s, they didn’t show up until the wars end
>>20423380I don't know that it's relevant, but the Kampfer can be completely disassembled for covert transport. So they're definitely not interchangeable.
