Description
Ever seen anyone ride a Kangaroo before?

No? Well there's a good reason.
Everything this mech does, a small rover or aircraft could do better, but what's the fun in that?


Introducing the [MSC] R-00 "Klangaroo".
A hovercraft/jumper mech hybrid.


Some features:
- All-directions atmo and h2 thrust
- 3 modes of transport: flight, hovercraft and jump (best used with atleast atmo thrust)
- Extremely simple design: automatic jump sequence works with only one timer and sensor. No script. No mod.
- Fast movement speed (for a mech). Safe speed of 70m/s in hovercraft mode, up to 30m/s in bounding mode (going over 20 m/s takes some getting used to)



NOTES:
-Automatons DLC required for saddle cockpit and turrets' cameras. Heavy Industries DLC used to hold just one thruster (near the tail). Just slap a top-facing flatmo thruster there if you don't have it. The rest is cosmetic.
-Highly recommend using BuildInfo mod to know the hotkeys (Otherwise see instructions below).
-Limited space means it has zero fail-safes. Effectively, it can slip and eat dirt pretty hard if you're not careful
-Cancelling jump-mode while the legs are deployed WILL make the jump sequence fail
-Initially deploys as a hovercraft with dampeners off so it will slip away if on uneven ground


BASIC INSTRUCTIONS:
-WASD, spacebar, C, Q and E works as they would in an aircraft
- 1 to trigger half the jumping sequence (I used this for R&D but it can be used to reset the sequence if something wrong happened)
- 2 to toggle ON/OFF the auto-jump mode (only turn legs off while they are retracted otherwise you'll eat dirt)
- Bounce mode is best used without dampeners
- 3 to toggle ON/OFF h2 thrusters (h2-saving mode)
- 4 to raise/lower back (helps fighting airborne enemies)

"What do we do when we run out of ammo on those emus?"

"...eh, jump 'em I guess."
