The volume seems ok, but the weight is ludicrous. This droid is far, far heavier than any other vehicle in the game. It weights more than a good amount of starships for pete's sake! I understand from Wookieepedia that the droids are massive and dwarf AT-ATs by some 170 or so meters in height, but I didn't see any mention of how much they weighed.
If an AT-AT weighs in at some 290 Tons by our rules, I can't see how the EVS droid can be about 28 times heaviers than that. They'd just sink in the ground :P
Any chance someone could look into this and possibly reducing the weight to something more reasonable?
Are you saying the 8200 T weight incorporates the 8000 T weight capacity?
Not to mention people already fill MTC with loaded bulks and such, I doubt they're going to suddenly decide to use EVS Construction Droids for that purpose. The more I look into the history of the EVS Construction droid the more I see the justification for it's massive weight, expecially compared to massive construction equipment IRL. However, it's weight isn't really in line with everything else in the combine. Maybe if entity stats were reworked or something, but right now it just doesn't make sense to be so high.
Every entity added in recent years have taken the exploit of the bulk freighter/etc into account.
I'd personally rather we also fix the Bulk Freighter, but to make it to the point where it would no longer be financially better to do it that way, we'd have to raise the weight/volume to the point where bulk freighters became very expensive to construct.
As it stands however, that's the reason for the weight capacity, not the fact it's a robot the size of a star destroyer.
It's supposed to be the size of like a Sky100, because it basically walks around a city and poops out 100% fabricated buildings, meaning it has furnaces and recycling facilities and all that jazz inside it. So that explains some of the massive weight, to me.
