Titan Suit

Recommended Posts

With the Titan Suit arriving on the roadmap (Q4 2019) I wanted to collect everything we know to date on it.

Not much is known other than they had to go back and redesign the Idris hallways to allow a Titian Suit to walk its corridors.

LOL So now they will make all Idris hallways and hatches 3.5m high and 2 meters wide 😂😂🤣 I hope they don‘t forget to place a urinal at 1.8m high in the bathroom so the guy doesn‘t have to get out of his suit to take a piss 😜 

The good news is that we can now fly our bikes around the interior of the idris which should make for some interesting boarding action and I think I will be organizing bike races for the crews enjoyment on long flights. 🙄

Lol, all humorous jokes aside... 😂😂 I'm not against a suit like this. I mean it's the 30th Century, come on. It's not far-fetched to have something like this lugging around and in combat too. Besides I can think of a few situations where a heavy-suit like this would come in handy during situations where the enemy is dug in... just send in our extremely expensive Iron-Man suit guy, he'll handle it.

I just hope they make something like this as accurate as it can be and as expensive as it should be.. and like everything else CIG puts out I'm buying it anyways... lmao!

Oh and +1 for the Idris changes too!

You don't have to store the Titan Suit in Idris.

You can just store a bunch in the hangar of Valkyrie or maybe even Prowler if they fit.

Prowler was already giving me Edge of Tomorrow vibes in concept:

It also doesn't have to fit everywhere, it'll likely gonna have its own life support system.

Maybe it's me but it makes no sense to keep the arms of the human bundled up inside the exosuit like that. It restricts movement and doesn't allow 1 on 1 translation of movement. If you look at most exosuit implementations they usually make use of the natural arm movements of the operator and translate that into power amplified suit movements.

Also their suit looks like an overengineered super expensive combat suit and not like a power loader/working suit. The one Tom Cruise is wearing looks much more like the part (or the Alien power suit).

I just remember our first mention of the Titan Armor (besides the original Armor Doc).... When they sold the swappable modules for the Retaliator Bomber...  and you could buy a Titan Armor Drop Ship module so you could carry a fire team of Titan Armored Marines and drop them into a Drop Zone like you were making a bombing run...

(Spoiler:  You can bet I bought that module for my 'Tali)

Could you imagine how effective that'd be? Dropping a fully loaded Titan Squad on the ground to wreak havoc... Yeah, I think I'm getting myself a Titan suit ASAP once it's up for grabs 😆

To my knowledge, the 'Tali module is the only mention of a Drop Ship and Titan Armor in the same description...  That's not to say that other Drop Ship's can't handle Titan Armor...  It's just the only time I've actually seen it called out in the design specs (assuming that CIG doesn't retroactively change anything of course)

Edit:  In re-reading the CIG Sale page/article itself, it now refers to the front Drop Ship Bay as "power armor" which could be Titan Armor, or could just be the "Marine Heavy" armor....  They do still refer to Titan Armor, but only in a vague way when they talk about "other modules" that they (once upon a time) had planned:

The Future

There are more Retaliator modules in the pipeline! As the mechanics behind various persistent universe roles begin to take their final form, we will be developing additional modules to support different jobs. These include cryo-stasis pods for bounty hunters, medical equipment, recharging stations for Titan armor, salvage equipment and more. Stay tuned—your ships are getting more versatile!

      Hello Citizens! Although I am newer to the star citizen universe trust me I have watched every video there is to watch about this game. I am a huge fan of star citizen, and am eagerly awaiting the full game release regardless how long it will take. Anyways moving on to the actual point of my topic.
      So i'm just throwing this out there, and I don't want this to turn into anything like Gundam or any mecha anime I have ever seen, but I would absolutely love to see mecha's implemented into star citizen!
      Now I know what you are thinking, this guy is just another rambler on the forums but hear me out on this.
      Here is how I think they should go about it if they were to do this:
      1. Mecha's in space!
      A mecha in space sounds stupid right, it basically just does the same thing as a fighter right? WRONG!
      you make mecha's use their own weapons that can be bought and customized just like real guns, so that way you can have a variety, and they should of course have missile silos somewhere on them, so that they can be effective against fighting larger ships. Now maneuverability, I think a mecha should be able to out maneuver a fighter, but however fighters should have more shields than a mecha, so that way it can more or less be evened out in the end, you may be able to outmaneuver a fighter, but if their shields can hold long enough for them to get a few good missile hits on you, then it would be just as deadly to you as you are to it.
      Basically think of a mecha as an extension of the player while floating in space, you can move easier than a ship can, and more precisely which then gives you the ability to outmaneuver(however you would need to be a lot faster than a player is) a fighter, but not outgun.
      2.Mecha's On Ground!
      Now I know what you are thinking, well why not just make a more maneuverable spaceship? well I will tell you why! Having a mecha isn't just meant for space combat, but also ground combat as well. Entering the atmosphere and going into a ground battle from space travel is hard enough with only having something like your drake dragonfly isn't my idea of a good time if you are going against an enemy base, using a mecha though to take down their outer turrets so that you can get in close, then switch to foot to head inside the base is my idea of a good time!
      Finally for the ground combat aspect, I know it would be unfair to infantry ti have to fight something like that, however like I said before they aren't well shielded so that way you can be able to take them down even if you are an infantry unit, using basically an RPG to do a good amount of damage to the ship, or of course the drake dragonfly, and the troop transport whose name I currently forget would also be able to do damage to it. So this way it isn't making anything unbalanced.
       
      3. The Game has been delayed enough!
      Yes I know the game has been constantly pushed back more and more, and if this was something that was going to take up half a year of development I would say forget it, but I would absolutely love to be able to have a mecha in star citizen. Being able to add a new element to battle for those who can't decide between marine or fighter pilot like me, then this is the perfect fit for you. Anyways please let me know your feedback on this, and I would love to hear both positive and negative just tell me what you are thinking!
