You said "these designs have literally nothing in common". As these pictures show, they actually do. It's almost like saying that the retail Typhon and the ragingloli Typhon "have literally nothing in common".I'd not be surprised if he said it didn't because it was uvmapped instead of tiled. I can't comprehend why, but Dragon has some sort of insane dislike of modernization.
Well, OK, I admit I was mistaken here. I was mostly used to MW4 interpretation for the CAT (which I still simply like better), which looks very
different. I actually preferred the almost comically oversized missile pods to the small ones. Gave it a clumsy, overspecialized look, which is exactly how a CAT handles. Besides, it's not like it all matters, I got bored with MWO by now. I might return to it once there's something more interesting than two game modes and a handful of IS mechs. And I really dislike "grinding" for money, it just gets boring to do the same thing a thousand times over to get anything decent (not that there's anything else to do, even once you buy and outfit your own mech...).
Also, it's not modernization I dislike, it's that back in the day, I got most of my ships by reskinning existing ones, and I lacked the skill to edit UV maps. I don't like when an "update" starts limiting my customization options and makes changing things harder.
