Heavy Power Armor. Well. Power Armor in general.
« on: February 07, 2017, 03:33:46 PM »
I was thinking back to an older character of mine who had found  heavy power armor (in the middle of the road with a mininuke, no less), and was wondering what it looks like. The in-game description only talks about features and functions, so no definite appearance can be assumed.

Personally, I think the heavy power armor looks something along the lines of the enclave x-01 armor from FO4. Large and bulky.
But, what do you think?

Definitely like fo4 power armor. In fact I'm planning on making them even more similar, such as by adding power armor hoist furniture and restricting the fuels they can use.
Also interested in making them moddable.

Ooh, very interesting. Maybe have some sort of bionic that can attach to a suit when you wear it, causing it to use your battery levels as a fuel source?
...oh, wait, that's just a UPS CBM. In that case, maybe the armor would be UPS compatible?

I'm thinking more like the fusion core thing, where it takes a unique power supply that last quite a long time.

I don't remember clearly, due to it being an old character, but don't power armor suits already take plutonium cells? Isn't that kinda...fusion core-y?
Oh, actually, if a proper fusion core type thing is added, maybe the plutonium could be used as a base component in crafting? Put the recipe in some lab journal, and there, a way to craft fuel for the murderfucker armor. I mean, so long as you have the rare components.

They're powered by a ups(regular batteries), or an advanced ups (Plutonium) or just with a cbm.

Is it wrong that I somewhat like the idea of mutant-strong characters being able to tough it out with unpowered armor, somewhat like NCR Heavy Troopers? Basically just wearing it like normal armor without any assistance from a power source with a strength of like, 16, or something.

This excites me.
