"SCMM" is a nice acronym but since it's no longer a monthly feature, it doesn't fit any more.
Korin & I were talking, and we're thinking of calling it either:
Star Captain Exclusive Mecha (SCEM)

or

Star Captain Mercurial Mecha (which is still SCMM but basically means "Star Captain Inconsistent Mecha"). That was kind of a joke but it's also kinda catchy...

Which do you prefer?

Then the other thing is, we had this thread where Korin wanted to know what you wanted to see in the next "SCMM" -- and the forums ate it somehow.
So, what we want to know is what kind of art style do you want? A militaristic machine? Something more 'humanoid?' You've been telling us about your favorites of the past - what would you like for the relatively near future?

(Keep in mind that it takes quite a bit of time to develop these so don't expect a new one for next week!)

I gave this thread the "FAQ" tag so that in theory the forums can't nom it.




THIS_IS_SPARTA -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 17:44:45)

I want a Tank themed mecha.

Also SCEM sounds better :P




hellblade124 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 17:49:59)

a bender from futurama based mecha FTW




Glais -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 18:05:36)

Militaristic Machine. Militaristic Machine. Militaristic Machine.
That's why I like SCMMs, MQ has its silly Mechs, which is fine, but SCMMs really look like they can tear you apart. Mohawk, AutoMorph, Master Blaster...now THOSE are Mechs. They look tough which is important.


Alternatively, I'd really like a Mech referencing the Stands of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. The whole rapidfire punching would make an awesome attack.




Somehing -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 18:08:59)

Why not a mech based off of nulgath,dage, or both




Glais -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 18:12:52)

Well they really have no place in MQ...demons and whatnot.




Thiefboy109 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 18:22:38)

Star Captain Exclusive Mecha preferably imo.

Anyway, for next art style...
Re-art of the original SCMM, Strider!




Hoggs Bison -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 18:41:22)

Star Captain Exclusive Mecha.

Anyway, it should be Humanoid, with toes? Maybe something Evangelion like...

Something like the EVA 06 would look nice...




zekefreed777 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:08:59)

A Megas XLR inspired mecha. Classic SCwatchamacallitnow...




EinhanderX01 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:24:53)

I'm fine calling them SCEM now. It's not much different since some still refer to them as SCM.

As for design styles, I'd much rather they keep to the semi-exclusive, almost militaristic design that most of them had. I'm fine with the occasional themed SCM (Mechtron, Viking, or BC) if the Staff is just in the mood for one.

As to what I suggest as far as a machine idea... either:

1. A "Transformable" Mech-to-Jet or Mech-to-Helicopter unit that evokes the stealthiness of the F-117 (the angular plating) and plays more tactically (like House MR). By transformable, I mean converting into some sort of hover-jetplane like the Automorph transforms into a hover truck when moving in mech zones. Of course, only if the Staff has the time for such an endeavor.

2. A half-mech/half-tank. Heavy emphasis in the literal "tanking" role. Granted, may not go over too well with those tired of defense and firepower-oriented builds.

3. A new humanoid "Healer" themed mech. Been awhile since we had one.




Cataclysm -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:27:52)

Zeke, you score 20 awesome points in my book for that. I would farm for hours with the themesong in the background, doing the obligitory hand gesture and headbanging. It would make farming exceedingly difficult, but oh so worth it.

@above: Humanoid healer mech? Doesn't the Romero's Valkyrie classify as a healer?

Star Captain Exclusive Mecha doesn't sound right, because there's several SC exclusive mechs. I think Star Captain Hey-We-Eventually-Ended-This Mech works best, given how long it's taken. SCHWEET Mech for short.




CHAIML -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:29:49)

My vote is for SCEM.
I would like a "Pretender" mech - as in the Transformers idea. A Mech outer shell that separates and has an inner humanoid shell.




Glais -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:33:34)

Ah yes the Pretenders. As long as they don't do the...organic thing Pretenders had. That was kinda ugly.

TransFormers wise, I have an awesome idea for an SCMM but...I do not yet wish to post it.




zekefreed777 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:34:16)

@TCO Yep, I'm not particular about the acronym, but a mecha with a car for a head... That's Mechquest awesome :D




.R.M. -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:37:44)

SCEM FTW...

@Zekfreed: Megas would be good... Though only six slots wouldn't do Megas justice! :O We need toe slots, finger slots and three more slots for every slot, in order for Megas to work... xD

Maybe another Automorph or something like that... I liked the concept behind that mech.




zekefreed777 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:40:29)

@.R.M. Yep Megas is cool like that XD

A transformer mech doesn't sound like a bad idea though if it's more viable...




Eonaleth -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:56:28)

I like the sound of SCEM and I really miss seeing Monthly Mechas but time can chew you up and spit you out. Take care.




stealthwings -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:57:02)

Am I the only one here who likes the acronym SCMM?

I mean, lots of mechas are SC-exclusive. The SCMM are a special set of SC-exclusive mecha.

As for art style, I would rather they are not based off of anything, they are just mecha. Preferably less humanoid.




Glais -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 19:58:21)

Pretty much echo what Stealth said. SCMM is just...their name. I can't see them as anything else. And I'd prefer it if they weren't themed, as other Mechs can suit that well. Though I did want a JoJo reference, that moreso has to do with a single attack and not a visual theme.




Yakub -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 20:18:42)

Star
Captain
Rare
Auto-
Piloted
Mecha

Short SCRAP-Mecha
:P

Definitely we need Parasol themed Mecha for hot summer!
Like Parasol coverin Sun for Darkness blinding enemy and random Parasol shooting Bazookas!!!
Parasol Mecha... Sounds cool too!! Soooo why not? :D




Axumeus -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 20:33:40)

Here's a quick ramble-off:
-Dancing themed
-Indiana Jones themed
-Classic video game character themed




Selutu -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 20:51:06)

Star Captain Mercurial Mecha sounds good to me and I'm too use to typing SCMM now that i can't be bothered to change.
As for art-style for the next one... Something evil-themed (either like a demon or ShS)...




.R.M. -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 20:54:11)

I would vote for "Star Captain Mercurial Mecha" (SCMM), but it just doesn't roll off the tongue like "Star Captain Monthly Mecha"... SCEM doesn't really roll of the tongue like (the original) SCMM either, but it's better than the new SCMM.




Hoggs Bison -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 21:00:03)

^

I think "Exclusive" rolls off the tongue better.
It sounds more special, no?




wildman101093 -> RE: =MQ= Art Style for Next "SCMM" - We Call Them SCEM Now! (7/19/2012 21:31:43)

To be honest, I can't decide on the new title for these mechs. SCEM sounds like a cool title, but when I hear Star Captain exclusive, I think of all star captain mechs in general. Mercurial would allow the mechs to keep their old acronym, but I'm not sure most players know the meaning of the word... I know I don't.

As for an idea for the design of the next mech, how about an ancient rock mech. How often do you see a mech made out of rock? Whose to say mechs didn't exist before metal?
