    Campaign mode improvements

    With most game singleplayer campaigns, I love having parts of the lore being revealed throughout, and I'm sorry, but Robocraft DOES NOT fulfill in that department, the only story we really have is in Robonews, and those 5 seconds at the beginning of the tutorial.

    What I would do is give you a small overlay of a character of some kind, perhaps an AI, that reveals bits of lore as you fight the bots, perhaps commenting on your success thus far. It could just add a bit more depth than "Here shoot these targets" "Here shoot these animals" or "Here, shoot these artbots"

    I feel this could improve a bit of the experience overall

    maybe interactions between the supercomputers that pilot the bots:
    sorta like story missions, etc...

    example:
    Announcer voice: your protonium reactor is under attack!
    Cray: They are attacking the reactor!
    Gene: let's get that near point back!
    Cray: Bot heavily damaged!, i require assistance!
    Gene: ive got you, keep going, the CF alliance won't get our protonium today!
    Cray: Mining probe in place, reactor shield back online, awaiting re-enforcements to take mid...
    TitanHE: re-enforcements are here, weapons & targeting online... E-plates powering up

    for those who do not know who the supercomputers are, they are the robot models in the pilot seats *except for retro*
    Cray: all-purpose general combat computer
    Gene: the "Medic" computer
    TitanHE : The "Tank" or heavy computer

    *also if you have a pilot seat, when you type in chat your text would be read aloud to your teammates, in the voice of the "supercomputer" piloting your bot, on team chat only your team will hear this, on all, both sides will hear it.*

    Yeah. though you would probably need to use a decently complicated AI to construct their voices and make them say words typed into chat, after all, the English language has a lot of quirks.

    Though while we're at it, maybe their personalities could define how their bots would behave in Campaign Mode, and maybe creating some anti-versions of them would be neat

    As an example: Cray would be a bit headstrong, and sometimes too eager to get into a fight, while the Anti-Cray (IDK what to call it really) would switch out the white for black and the blue for red, and would start any dialogues with an unhinged sounding laugh, and in campaign mode would be a sort of burst damage specialist.

    maybe the anti-cray, or CF master AI,
    could have the color scheme of the CF alliance, yellow and red, and would appear mocking the player, and appear as a final boss for each mission *in the actual storyline*

    the story could start off as:
    Protonium is the most powerful source of energy in the galaxy,
    The CF, and E-14 are locked in a war in attempt to control this power
    The war is going badly...|
    (a E-14 warship, the SS vanguard is seen falling from the sky, through the clouds from the view of Birmingham power station being pursued by 3 CF fighters, the SS Vanguard fires a final Protonium burst from it's annihilator cannons, destroying the 3 fighters, right before crashing, the vanguard releases an escape pod, and the screen fades to black.
    The player gets his first veiw of build mode *the bay skin, Birmingham forest is in place* (static) Supercomputer (static) the CF alliance has (static) build a combat unit and defend the Protonite cargo.
    *the player build the default tutorial robot, and is spawned in, near a protonite core *the core that appears in BA*, the player must defend the core from CF survey buggies *these are equipped with 1x T1 tesla *the royale buggy* (will edit to finish the story)

    Yes. Heck, we need personalities for some characters though,
    In an example: TitanHE: a gruff-seeming veteran that's really just a big softy

    maybe off-screen conversations between the AI's as well:
    Gene: your average "nerd" hates violence, and just wants to hug it out
    Cray: headstrong, loves explosions and fast things, a bit cocky at times.
    TitanHE: as you suggested, tough on the outside, marshmellow on the inside

    Gene: are you sure we can't just split the power equally between the two sides?
    Cray: are your circuits on the fritz? of course we need to destroy every CF unit that we come across, remember the vanguard!
    Titan: *grumbles*
    Cray: hey! Titan, pipe up a bit, we have a war to fight!
    Titan: *im not feeling like it today... if i were human, i would take a nap...*
    Gene: see! even Titan agrees with me, we shouldn't fight each-other just over some stupid power source!
    Cray: heh.. that "Stupid power source" is what keeps you running, so we do need to fight for it!
    Titan: *stares outside the bay window at the land below*
    Gene: what's wrong? you seem a bit down lately...
    Titan: nothing much *flashback to Titan running a dog over while in pursuit of a CF hover* nothing at all...
    Gene: i though robots weren't capable of emotion... Cray certainly doesn't have it...
    Announcer voice: *Warning lights flash* entering upper atmosphere, prepare for turbulence.
    Cray: YEE HAW!!!, Gonna smash some CF scum today!
    Gene: *shakes head slowly while facepalming*

    Edit: who wants me to make a story thread?
