Please do!  I remember your custom GH2 designs, they were awesome!

Hah, I think you may be confusing me for someone else. Though my memory's bad enough that maybe I just forget sharing some of what I did.

Also, kudos for the new design. Always nice to get some further variety.

Y'know, I remember making that, but I completely forget what it does. I'm guessing a high tier computer for making sentient robot allies, but... don't remember, ha.

Speaking of remembering GH2 modding - basically, yeah. If I'm remembering right, without it in order to get a sentient AI ally you had to get ahold of and then slap a boatload of computers together and hope for the best.


Okay, thanks to date modified figures and whatnot I think I sussed out what bits were modded/added, and have packaged those up here: http://www.filedropper.com/gh2bits

As a reminder, almost all of this is not mine; wish I remembered who all to give credit to.

In theory you can just drop that into a GH2 install and it'll be good to go. I did a quick test with a fresh GH2 install and seemed to work fine, though I only did a brief whirl (so far).

Gearhead 3 has been released (although it's still in development), and allows you to import characters from the original (Arena).

The dev also has a link to the current version's github down in the comments, which can work as a demo.

I kinda need to know what they did with Robotics before I import my GH1 character...

I must say I loved GH1's tile and portrait style a bit better. The newer ones in GH2 and Caramel looked a bit...unkempt and stapled, though I suppose those depended more upon volunteer labour.

Right? Is my robot made of superglue and chainsaws going to be afforded the respect and dignity it deserves?

I think they ripped out Robotics entirely in Caramel.  :'(

For now.

It looks like it's on the roadmap to come back.

Yeah, for a few versions of Caramel I've been tempted to put a post here announcing the grand return, but honestly not quite sure it's ready for a full run yet. Still, good the fellow is back on the dev horse and nice to see progress.

You guys should really join GH's discord server. It's the best place to get infos and a bit more straight from the source, Joseph Hewitt is very present, and the place feels very lonely considered the giant that is gearhead.

Sure, but it's as good a time as any to figure out how to play Gearhead again.

I had no idea Gearhead 2 was complete, and now you tell me Gearhead 3 is out?

Gearhead 1 was so good.  I'm surprised there hasn't been any other mech-themed roguelikes aside from Gearhead.

There's been attempts -- Cogmind has a thread right here on B12, ferex, and from everything I've seen of it, it's pretty good. Bionic Dues (done by the AI War dev) is also around and nice for what it is. Pretty sure there's a handful of others, too, but it (sci-fi roguelikes in general, really) is definitely pretty slim pickings numbers wise.

Very old but there is also BattleTech: The Crescent Hawks Inception, wouldn't be surprised if it was an inspiration for GearHead
