Come up with a way then, dingus.
Bullshit. Goseiger was hated back before it aired but gets a ton of respect in these threads over the past few years. Alata gets praised a ton as do the villain designs. Goseiknight was always liked too. The biggest complaint was that people found the cast ugly and that was before the show even aired. It didn't help that it was sandwiched between a really popular show in Shinkenger and a show that got tons of people into the franchise with Gokaiger.
>a ton of respect in these threads over the past few years
no it doesn't
Yes there has been. People re-evaluated Alata as a pretty good Red that gets really heated when he needed to. He cared about his team and the Earth very much.
It was like one guy and some other peeps being like "yeah I guess"

They do? Maybe I haven't been looking for it, but I've never seen a single post flipping out solely because robots fight on earth instead of in space.
IBO does the "pan and zoom a high res image to portray movement" worse than any gundam i've ever seen, and that's current.

It's been over a decade since we last had a good anime dedicated to dogfights. Why is this such a niche anyway? The only alternatives to Macross I can think of are Yamato, Yukikaze and that Honneamise sequel that will likely never get off the ground.

It's because the only people creating anime now are only people who grew up on anime, they mostly have no other interests.

Before we had people with all kinds of hobbies and lifestyles in the industry, and now it's full of lowbrow otaku.

Well, gundam has tons of dogfights, since MSes are actually aerospace fighters with legs anyway.
>since MSes are actually aerospace fighters with legs anyway.

Yeah, you can thank the 80s for starting that.
It meant to implement the AMBAC system for high maneuverability and energy efficiency, and their feet are just used for intra-colony combat. It was intended to replace a traditional fighters on space, especially when space debris becomes widespread due to war. Hell, there's reasons why 0083 was called "Top Gun in space", and MS pilots are treated like their fighter counterpart.

It's implied in IGLOO that they're kinda shit on earthbound combat since they're heavy as fuck, thats why Dom and their hover legs and giant tank projects exist.

He also did some MariMite comedy doujin that looked cute.

Give the guy a break. Obviously english isn't his first language, but still -- he writes a second language better than you probably can.

And what he means is, "He got kicked out of R. Tal exactly because he asked that question." (Namely, where the fuck the new Mekton is.)

Go read the thread, it's quite a story.
>Well, brushfire wars can be fun to play.
They are, that's why it's a shame Mars is the only viable place they can happen.

JC was set up with the Jovian Confederation as the Feddy expy and CEGA as the Zeke expy, with Mars providing the terrestrial battlefield and Venus being "the man behind the curtain." Mercury was just there for people who wanted to play caravan guards in space.

It wasn't really meant to be more than that, and trying to make it something more than that ended up detracting from the setting.
Yeah, my bad.

That IS quite the read, it makes me honestly wonder if Mike Pondsmith and Kevin Sembeida are the same person...
So what made folks think that the old Star Wars D6 system would be good for a mecha game?

The fighters and walkers?

Heavy Gear D6 is proof enough that it can work. I myself have run more than a few successful D6 System and Mini Six based mecha games and it works surprisingly well.

They try to justify it as the priest taking Kira to Plant because he assumes the Earth Forces can't be trusted anymore and bringing him back to EA territory without the AA there will just have them let him die.

He's partially correct, but they still bring him to Lacus for treatment rather than general Zaft medical, and this is ignoring that Orb is right there and would have been happy to take him back.

Not that anon, but I've seen you around and I'm really glad you source the stuff you post.

The only reason I plan on watching Eva is because I want to see what all the fuss is about. It honestly doesn't sound like my thing, and if it wasn't as popular I probably would've just ignored it.

Did this show ever get good?
I'm just stuck on the ride
It's the worst Gundam franchise in recent years. Its on par with Build Fighters as being utter crap. Give me back my Freedom/00/Unicorn power level Gundams, enough of this stupid underpowered crap.

Here's a list of things that would utterly wreck every Gundam in the IBO universe:
1) Qan-T
2) Unicorn
3) Guntank
4) My eraser

Is that a rocket firing off in it's foot?
How impractical would using rockets as a speed booster or jump pack for a ground vehicle/mecha be?
Would they make much difference for something that heavy?

Yes, many ATs have booster rockets in their feet to help them go even faster.
For land units, there isn't really anything in real life that needs to go that quickly while on the ground, so it's rare if not non-existent. Besides, rockets are somewhat difficult to control so they wouldn't be that reliable, while jet engine pods would be large and complicated (needs fuel system of its own or tied into the vehicle's fuel supply). Any time that the equipment isn't being used, it would be dead weight and reduce the mobility and speed of whatever it was attached to, so some kind of tradeoff has to be made. In real life, a small enough external rocket or jet engine that wouldn't be cumbersome probably wouldn't provide enough thrust to be very useful in the first place. They would never have enough fuel and propellant to last as long as they do in anime either.

Heavy aircraft can have JATO/RATO equipment for assisted takeoff, but such things are more or less disposable and usually aren't kept after takeoff.

>That posture

Placing boosters horizontally on the back seems like a much safer design option if you ask me.
Oh god it's just like the robot in my dream

they had jumping power to reach the tree tops and could hang on the sturdier branches

operators would use them for camouflage, to increase vision range, and for sniping

they wore computerized goggles for data acquisition and communications

and the biggest issue plaguing us was the advent of a new drug that heightened psychic potential, proliferated on the streets even though it was a controlled substance

people feared to walk outside, and even the common man gained the ability of faster than sight reflexes and short-term precognition

and those who were already espers were like demigods who walked amidst the fiercest carnage unscathed

>There's nothing wrong with Delta,

I liked Delta more than F mainly because it had
1) more likeable MCs
2) interesting adversaries who are not just "lol zerg hivemind"
That being said, there was not nearly enough focus on mecha, songs were not fitting to the action scenes, triangle missed one corner and secondary plotlines were all over the place. But it is bashed for having an idol group (yeah, that totally doesnt fit the Macross, amirite gaaaaiz?!) and flat characters, while Frontier seems to be praised as some kind of golden standard. I can't fucking understand that.

Frontier has had a decade and two movies to mellow out the 'wtf its got grils ewwwwww' underage/overnostalgic fags who shitposted it in 2008.
Also I personally thought that Delta didn't feel like it had a definite end to it, while Frontier had a conclusion to its story, where the adversaries fucked off permamently and the MC achieved his goals.

Delta definitely isn't the Worst Macross Ever, though.

The windys. Really? That's who you think is more interesting? A race of people too retarded you wouldn't want them to handle sharp scissors let alone a space nuke?

Man, you are seriously retarded. Roid's grand master plan was the exact same as Grace's, to turn all of humanity into a hive mind because ripping off that particular plot point from Evangelion without any of the context that made it interesting in the first place is the surest way to out yourself as a fucking hack writer.

Setsuna was the highlight attraction of S2 over S1 simply because he has a much higher sense of maturity and was willing to tone out his Gundam-to-God complex for a more extrovert style of getting to know his teammates, as well as Saji and Marina who represent the humanity he is fully intending to save from the harshness of war.

Thanx for the heads up. It's fine. (I've actually been reading that thread too.)


The number one change I'd make to the BGC RPG would be to change the stats on the Hardsuits -- I'd change their maneuverability so as to increase the wearers' Reflexes and Dexterity, rather than reduce them. I really don't know what I was thinking. ...Actually I do. I was thinking backwards.
Wow... are Mike Pondsmith and Kevin Siembieda the same person?

No, very much not. I've never met Kevin, but I can tell you Mike's not the type to threaten to sue anyone at the drop of a hat.

Then again, Kevin's managed to keep his company publishing all this time...
Man, a full-Fuzion conversion of Mekton's construction system would've been great. I think somebody made an unofficial plug-in doing just that, but I'm not sure how well it works.

That's really difficult. Interlock and Fuzion are very similar but have some differences which make direct conversion a lot more difficult than one would guess. Folks online have done it though.
