ProtoFrames

Postby Artasid » Sat Jun 30, 2018 2:10 am

I actually started a Fan Fiction based off these builds (Where ProtoFrames Dare), however it occurred to me that I should probably post them so that those who read it might have a better understanding what they are.

ProtoFrames are machines that are worn like Battlesuits, but with mechanics that are more likely found in everyday frames. Though they outperform most battlesuits and battlearmors that are fielded today, they do not quite meet the standards for even the basics of frames. ProtoFrames are designated between the two. They are considered by most a 'Poor man's Frame' or even a 'Rich man's Battlesuit'. Though the operator is quite exposed in the machine, it is not likely to be used in territories that are plagued with toxic atmospheric conditions, though it can often be useful in situations where the operator may have to quickly get on or off the machine at a moments notice, such as urban combat where the individual may need to infiltrate a building too small for a frame to fit.

That is a really really fantastic design, has a "complex simplicity" look to it. The Desert and Arctic camo look great and that Jungle one is stellar. But that is not all, the way you have it fit the universe as a "poor man's frame" or "rich man's battle suit" is ingenious. And still we are not finished, that little bit of fan fiction Where Proto Frames Dare is just plain delicious. This is one of your top works in my opinion because, not only is the design amazing, but the depth behind them is tremendous. Awesome bro :D

- I also thought this vehicle design would have been a good addition to the January 2018 monthly build,Expose Yourself edition.-

I love designs that thread the lines between classifications, and those surely don't disappoint!
