What kind of mech interface will the pilots have? Mechwarrior style where they are in a cockpit with pedals and joysticks? Or a direct control style where the mech moves as if it was the pilots own body? Will pilots wear a uniform, a special suit or even be naked in the cockpit with the mech interfacing directly with their body?

I love mechs of any kind.

Cool beans. I'll begin working on a character idea, though I have a few concepts.

If it fits with the background, I'll work on my genetic engineered/clone character.

Hm, I was thinking it can be whatever you want, really. Good point. I'm adding a new category for the mechs.

Interface: (How a mech will be control/AI)

 I actually think I'm going to go work on my own mecha game... Anyone ever play Dark Heresy?

Working on my character now, will post his template in the next few days. No idea on mecha yet, I think I need to discuss tech levels etc in more detail.

Here are some mech pics for inspiration.....
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide










I think the GM should essentially choose the level of tech, style of mechs and control interface that everyone has, to keep it sort of standardized.

As for interfaces- I would say a direct interface between the mech and the pilots body/mind would have great advantages, particularly for humanoid bipedal mechs (as instead of messing with controls the pilot simply walks, and instead of the pilot walking the nerve impulses cause the mech to walk) it enables the mech to handle just like a human being (Except stronger and faster) The pilot would probably also feel what the mech feels, i.e. pain when the mech is hit, dizzyness if the mechs gyro becomes unbalanced, euphoria when the mech makes a kill, etc, feel their arm go dead and numb when the mechs arm has been blown of, etc.
For the other style of control (sitting in a cockpit driving it with joysticks like a pilot) this would be cheaper/easier to produce, and suit non humanoid mechs well (armless chickenwalker mechs, quadmechs, etc).

Perhaps both styles should be in? Non humanoid mechs have the joystick style (perhaps with some level of neural interface, but a normal cockpit) and are generally used for certain types of roles (walking tanks, missile platforms, etc) while humanoid mechs move and fight like actual humanoid bipeds and are used for alot of the frontline combat, also being alot more agile, and better suited to having jumpjets/flying around, using a full interface where the pilot sees what the mech sees, feels what the mech feels, and the pilot controls the mech as if it were their own body, with no cockpit, instead more or less wearing the mech, all plugged in and etc?

I think the direct cybernetic/neural interface works well for the feel/theme of the game and its technology; blurr the line between man and machine and all that.

It will be freeform, yes. There's still plenty of room left for this rp.

@ Sanai: Do you really think so? I like your thinking. I'll see about adding one or both styles to the story.

I'll post my characters' profiles in a bit. Also, I could use a second or third GM for those that are interested.

Sure, Toughie. I'll let you handle some of the enemy encounters as well. Just try to be consistent.

Please define consistent. If you're looking for somebody to crank out quality posts at a reasonable pace, I'm your guy.

Basically, don't overdo it. Having up to like, three enemies at once is fine, but not an entire army. Also, no god-modding of course. ^^;

Still here and interested, just having a busy time of it at the moment.

I like the idea of a mix, some of the more common mass produced mecha or those fielded by 'third world' powers could still use joystick etc whereas the most recently produced or elite level mecha could be direct neural controlled?

Name: Yuna
Creator: Chi Nakamura
Appearance
Description: Yuna is a combat orientated organic android created primary to serve the military before the alien's showed up. She has been under development for about 20 years now and is still in the alpha stage. When Vex's army showed up and attacked Earth, she was awaken and sent to combat prematurely to hold them off. She is an adept fighter with high mobility but since she is unfinished, she may have some unknown glitches. 
Personality: Yuna is confident and more than willing to fight. Almost as if she enjoys it. Fighting strong opponents can sometimes feel welcoming to her. Outside of combat, Yuna is somewhat friendly sometimes has a sense of humor. 
Weapons/Abilities: Flight; highly mobile with her jet boots and rockets, most firearms
Romance/sex: Yes to romance but I don't know about sex. Technically, she's 20 but looks young.
Sexuality: Bi

If I can get at least three more profiles (not including my own), I'll start an OCC.

I wasn't sure if it might be a bit too high tech looking for the human side.
