We talk about mecha and weapons.But what about pilots?How do you like their cockpit?What's the best position for a cockpit?Manual controls or AI?Control the robot by movements or pulling levers?
>What's the best position for a cockpit?Remote>Control the robot by movements or pulling levers?Mind control
>>22130139>Manual controls or AI?What the do you even mean? Why have a pilot at all if you'll have the robot controlled by """"""AI""""""? Even shit like Yukikaze serves more as a copilot than just the robot magically moving around.Also>we
>>22130174>What the do you even mean?You say "fire the jets" and it fires jets.
for me it's the Layzner
>>22130139>How do you like their cockpit?Panoramic >Manual controls or AI?Both
>>22130139From the catalog, i almost thought that's a gaping mouth
>>22130139Like exposed bridge warships, head mounted cockpits are just fuckin dumb. Hide that shit behind armor. Torso mounted is best mounted if you have to be on board at all.Panoramic is good tech, but as a set piece, I feel its too distracting in the cockpit scene. Monitor clusters just look cooler. Open glass as mentioned before is retarded.Controls, manual joystick controls are coolest, even if they dont really make sense. The more practical and still cool systems are the augmented reality goggles, the man-machine interfaces (neurohelmets, the IBO wired in your spine shit, etc), stuff like that. G-Gundam's body suit shit is cool but the idea of standing in your tumble and rumble mech and not being pasted on the wall is goofy. Tracking gloves for hand manipulation is cool. As for AI, I feel like once you get into the biped humanoid form, you need AI assist heavily, but total AI control is lame, why even have a pilot at that point?Gimme mix of battletech and the ZakuII cockpit
>>22131204Lol can't unsee
>>22130139I aways though that the Armaggedon Getter cockpit, while hilarious, makes some sense. While is a cluster fuck, the Getter was made to use various gimmicks, transform and do complex movements. And it's mostly analogic. While more streamline controls may exist with better automatizatisation, it may hinder the abilities of the Getter pilots.
>>22131065How is that any different from pressing the "fire jets" button.
>>22131580You say it with the voice and don't have to reach a lame button
>>22131576That's how enemies points you or the spy kills you on sight
Like a Virtual On arcade cabinet. Anything else is hogwash.
Like this, on treadmill and visor
>>22135936What happens next?
>>22136299Also kick ass nerve link mobile trash piloting
Ride like a motorcycle.Captcha: MSGHDR
>>22130139I wasn't the only one that thought the pilot was in an open mouth with red lips (with the teeth being the clear plastic top and gray plastic controls) belonging to a pale white face (the white background) from the thumbnail, right?
>>22138086I certainly hope so. Shut up.
>>22138086I'm getting this comment a lot so not the first or last
