When you say that the legs should be stronger, you mean like something sort of "muscular"? I mean, the same design but with more "elastical" power in order to absorb the kinetical energy. So in other words, it should have some "suspension", like something similar to these?:

With the legs as they are, it looks like an agile unit. I don't think they have to be much muscular, unless you were going for a different approach. I wouldn't really specify it as a third level of reaper, especially since the legs differ greatly.

And what a bout a cavalry unit? Or maybe a "centaur" unit...?

Kameok, perhaps you should play this old german game called Thandor. It has been considered the Machines of Germany. You can find it here, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOL23nzAGBw. Anyways, mounted units could be interesting, but it depends.

I like the mule. He/she looks so happy. Animals in the background? That would be weird...

Its pretty fun but the computers are really stupid which takes away most of the fun. No idea how to make the multiplayer work for it too.  :bunny:

Hey, I made new designs  :smilydude: . I hope you like them. The first image is the design for the centaur or cavalry concept machine (notice that I made the legs stronger). And the second image is a third generation reaper, which i made using a similar (or identical) main body but with different legs (with 3 sections instead of 2). Again, any comments are welcomed   :eng101:

Interesting. The second reaper looks like a normal reaper though. But, i like the variation between color. The original reaper looks awkward because of his textures. :cowbell:

Yes, we should probably give him black legs. Nice drawings, but I wouldn't try to go any farther with a reaper. It seems like it would just make him look awkward.

Yeah. Reapers already have four legs, and the ones Kameok proposed seemed more like a scouting variant. (Those reverse-jointed legs look fast!)

I wouldn't mind a higher-tier scouting unit, though, especially considering fog of war. Something with an inbuilt scanner (higher sight range) and a faster speed would be SO. DAMNED. USEFUL. for scouting ahead of a larger force.

Yes, but it seems very tall. It would have to be shorter I think.
