    Please check out our new update on the progress of the milestone and the inclusion of Bonus Terrain.

    Originally the milestone was to show the THMPR running around on a flat white plane, without terrain. Since the THMPR came out so well, we wanted to showcase it on a small section of Em-8ER's planet surface.

    Looks great! Textures/terrain is my favourite graphical option, especially how it isnt flat texture, it is bevel and bumpy :)

    Your so called pec enhancements could be used as a way to point at the direction you are going while you could do other things!
    For turning blue you could embrace the smurf moment and then quickly locate some thermal gear otherwise just dance frantically until your comrades notice a dancing blue individual

    I'll be honest with you, the lava from "Em-8ER Update - Bonus Terrain Tiles" looks bad. It is one of the design I hated from current firefall design, it looks similar and stressful to look at. (this is just an experience, a thought/my opinion/consumer perspective) no hurt feelings. It looks unnatural, liquiddy.

    Lava comes in a wide viscosity range. All the way from almost motor oil to dried out silly putty.

    Interesting!

    This could open up more possibilities for variations in terrain and environmental hazards. MEK-As, as well as Omni-frames and their human pilots could get stuck in certain kinds of lava pools or it could slow their movement as they'd wade through it. Their frame or thumper could tow each other out, barring no interruption.

    This could be used to the players' advantage, too, by luring less intelligent enemies, like Kaijus into deeper pools, where they'd be either completely or severely immobilized. But, this vulnerability should be a bit compensated with additional reinforcement from the Tsihu, so it wouldn't necessarily be as simple as shooting a sitting space duck. Quack!
