    id love to get a group in on this, ive been chatting with my friends about this and thinking about getting us in on the weekend events but i gave the game a go last night and i dont think the game is ready yet. Maybe later. its just too clunky and buggy at the moment.

    Give the game a checking out when the next patch hits, which has a lot of optimizations in it.

    Just to expand on Cyberdog’s comment- he’s the Developer of the game, and would love to hear specific feedback from you.

    a run down of my returning player experience

    Opening the options menu, the resolution feels off, the text is a little blurry, theres no full screen windowed option that really sucks and you cant do custom resolution. to fit your monitor better.

    Going into the garage deleted the legs to delete the whole mech, that worked right, however spawning a new set of legs would spawn to one side and i couldnt click/drag them to the middle, couldnt attach parts to it without the legs being attached to the floor. exited/entered garage still didnt work.

    restarted client could now click’n’drag the legs and build my mech.
    still no way to rotate parts before attaching them to get better angles.
    attaching parts with the right hardpoints is a real challenge.
    no autosave on mechs, went to play a game only to realise i hadnt specifically saved the mech.
    the server selection menu was odd. hoving over a sever the border went green when i clicked it the green disappeared and didnt say aything about connecting.
    clicked into a battle gainst bots and the bots animations are… odd, like just sped up walking animations. nothing feels smooth, not sure if its just animations or really low FPS.
    i was on a jungle/forrest map? not sure and constantly got stuck on invisible vegetation.

    Majors were the garage being unweildy, server connection not working?, broken animations and invisible plants/terrain.

    I just couldn’t have fun with how much wasnt working, and it was not and experience i want to drag my friends through.

    Rotating parts before attaching them has been in the game for years. When holding the part the next weapon group hotkey and previous group hotkey rotates them Q and E by default.

    Also Shift + Q W E A S D work too if you dont change your hotkeys.

    New Amazon has the bug where the models for the big trees occasionally fails to load but the hitboxes remain. It’s a pretty uncommon bug, try another match there and it should work correctly.

    I'm taking a break from the forums.

    One of the many features provided by Rak Sal Industries. Personally I do it for the butt touches.
