Nice, thanks man.

Currently there is support for 2 and 4 leg designs and somewhat hidden support for 3 legged designs. The trick is to pick a quad mech gyro then wire up the third leg to two of the leg inputs, though you have to do it right so that both of those leg inputs are synced with eachother so it would need to be the front left with back right or the front right with back left wired to the middle foot.

I'm gonna be giving this system a go soon, got some great ideas for mechs and I'm looking forward to it.

Quick question though before I do, is there stuff implemented to allow for more than just two legs on a mech, and if there isn't how difficult would it be to implement it in the future (obvs when you have time)? I like making lots of different things, and one of the builds I'm looking to create is probably going to be a War of the Worlds style tripod, so if I can build that with this system that would be amazing!

You need to have Sprops, DakTek, and Wiremod installed, all of which can be found on the workshop.

@RamuNcOtaku
Most of the prebuilt mechs require SProps.

I got only errors... what kind of materials u use to build ur mechs?
Dakota  [author] Apr 18 @ 7:57pm 
There is already a buildmode console command though I'd have to find it again. Also neing in godmode makes your props immune too.
Bonbot Apr 18 @ 7:14pm 
just a suggestion, but can there be server settings, like console commands, to disable certain stuff like prop damage? im a server owner and prop destruction in general has been an issue, and it would be appreciated to see an option to disable it

Hey I noticed the grenade launcher doesn't do damage against players for some reason.
groovyrobloks2 Nov 30, 2018 @ 7:16pm 
you *use
groovyrobloks2 Nov 30, 2018 @ 7:16pm 
i think i found my issue, i did not look for power or anything but i still could you support with building
groovyrobloks2 Nov 30, 2018 @ 6:58pm 
i did rush typing the comment a made lots of typos lol
groovyrobloks2 Nov 30, 2018 @ 6:57pm 
ive been trying to make the this addon work but i cant ill try to get the guns to work but theywont i try to meke something that moves and fail that so i hoping that you could make more public mech also it would be awsome if you gave out the battlearmour as im a mechassult fan an having a battlearmour would be awesome. if you do thanks
Doge3131 Nov 30, 2018 @ 5:02pm 
how do you get them in the addon
Biggest Boss Nov 30, 2018 @ 12:12am 
I think if you also added other kinds of constructions like vtols or hover tanks in your custom collection it could give new people a frame of reference when designing their own machines.
Dakota  [author] Nov 29, 2018 @ 6:12pm 
Not all of the mechs in the pictures are my own, a few of the beta testers have their mechs shown too. They may have done separate releases elsewhere but have not given me the dupes to include in the mod. I was generally only releasing battletech canon mechs, but I could look into adding in some custom ones too.
Krazykind Nov 29, 2018 @ 2:36pm 
Dakota, you ever thought about releasing more of the mechs you have made? I see you still got a few bad ass ones up your sleeve in the pictures. More or less just for those who don't have the time, drive, or capability to figure out how to make their own. It's fine if not, I just know I probably wont ever figure all this out (or at the least not have the same quality as yours and others) after adv dupe errors or my last few attempts comming out poorly.

Did you make sure to parent the gate that the engine and reactor is parented to to the baseplate?
BlueClawRaptorGames Nov 11, 2018 @ 1:45am 
I need help, whenever I link a reactor to a fighter engine I get this this error in the console. [DakTek Combat System] lua/entities/dak_fighter/init.lua:243: attempt to index field 'phy' (a nil value)
1. unknown - lua/entities/dak_fighter/init.lua:243

How do I fire the third weapon on the mechs?
Biggest Boss Oct 15, 2018 @ 11:40am 
If you use mods like Utime be carefull as it will screw up the huds for the mechs,try to avoid using hud altering addons to avoid this
Hairball Sep 13, 2018 @ 9:30pm 
Is there a way to fix damaged subsystems?
Leebumph Aug 23, 2018 @ 7:41am

They do have third person, press your alt key.
Leebumph Aug 16, 2018 @ 3:29pm 
i want the public dupes to allow thirdperson
Dakota  [author] Aug 10, 2018 @ 4:34pm 
Summoner is the heaviest.
Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 4:20pm 
which public one is the biggest
Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 4:17pm 
public
Dakota  [author] Aug 10, 2018 @ 3:29pm 
Are you working with the public vehicles or making your own? If you are making your own refer to this video for instruction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3M2pHkuSf3I starting at the 40 second mark.
Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 2:48pm 
aand cam
Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 2:47pm

Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 2:47pm

Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 2:39pm 
its not working in the vehicles dakota
Dakota  [author] Aug 10, 2018 @ 12:50pm 
The alt key is the default key for going into third person in the vehicles.
Leebumph Aug 10, 2018 @ 8:46am 
how do i go in thirdperson inside this?
Dakota  [author] Aug 7, 2018 @ 9:13pm 
DakTek gives its users public dupes so that they may try out some vehicles from the mod. If you've joined a server with DakTek they're written to your dupe folder. If you have the mod they should allow you to spawn in the mechs.
KidozyGAME[HSg] Aug 7, 2018 @ 8:05pm 
I have a Daktek folder that i never made. never sub to this ws item nore have i joined the daktek server. why do ihave it?
file names in the folder are: Centurion, Hellbringer, Shadow cat, Summoner, and Urbanmech
but all 5 are empty .txt docs
Wamuu the FBI agent Jul 28, 2018 @ 8:04pm 
true, but it's still useful
Dakota  [author] Jul 28, 2018 @ 7:24pm 
well I guess, doesn't really do daktek damage to things though.
