hmm, I just thought of something very intersting. I'll have to try something:

the roboports.

can it bridge 2 static networks? as a way to manually control independant networks?

say you have an area with 2 networks you want to keep separate, and have a spidertron there to remotely step inbetween them to temporarily bridge the 2 networks into 1?

Considering that the personal roboports in spidertron's equipment grind work just like the one for the character, this should on bridge static roboports.

Considering that the personal roboport equipment works the same in armor as in spidertron, no, it only has construction range and doesn't "connect" different robot networks with eachother.
