Compilatron - unlockable in freeplay

Post by Tercicatrix » Sat Jan 05, 2019 6:26 am

Maybe add a research option in freeplay / multiplayer mode to allow building a Compilatron buddy to keep you company.
Or maybe make it a 100% achievement / end-game / vanity unlockable.

His little computer screen's text color could match your player color, too. Also maybe make it easier to change player color.


If not possible, maybe just make it possible for modders to implement?

If this were implemented, I think the Compilatron should only be visible to the player and not to other players. Otherwise, it would be annoying to other players if he saw a Compilatron following every player. The player's screen would be cluttered if there were many other players on the screen at once.

At least, it should be possible to disable the Compilatron from being displayed.

Is my assumption correct that the Compilatron is supposed to be purely cosmetic and have no influence on the gameplay?

Agreed

That would make collisions between player and the Compilatron tricky, since it isn't reasonable to have players colliding with a entity they can't see, and it also isn't reasonable to disable collisions for Compilatron. Maybe just make Compilatron available in single player

Purely cosmetic annoying companion? No, thanks.

Cosmetic, but optional, why should it be impossible ? Don't build it if you don't want it, and let the others live their live as they want, no ?

give the compilatron a purpose in freeplay, like a Modular armor ... put some lasers on it for fighting or some logistic/construction bots to start from, than it would not be useless... but i guess that will be part of a mod

"Hey! Watch out! Listen!"

"It looks like you're trying to build a rocket. Would you like assistance with this feature?"

EDIT:

*Builds a small army of Compilatrons*
*Sets off across the desert*
*Plays "Ride of the Valkyries" really loud*
