Character name: E.V.E (Emergency Vehicular Engineer) , Engineering Android
Item name: E.V.E's unique chassis.
Why is your character carrying said item to work? Due to unit E.V.E being tasked with extended operations outside of the station to commence repairs on solar components, the hull, and other components, its threaded legs were being worn out in the sandy terrain, and didn't have usually have the necessary grip to climb up steep hills and et cetera. After a quick upgrade, it was also seen fit that the Android would receive a slightly larger material storage tank, and increased weight, to assist it in its operations. Its brain being placed in an experimental chassis with six legs, capable of digging themselves into the sand for a better grip, a large storage on its back, and added weights to its legs, it was set to remain outside of the station for elongated periods, and be as efficient as two engineers, if not more.
Item function(s): ICly, it's for upgraded stability and grip, but mechanically it's a sprite change.
A large, mantis-like Engineering Android, which skitters swiftly with faint, mechanical hisses evoking from its legs' hydraulics. Its' beady emerald visors are have no pupils, and evoke a gentle, constant whir. Its two curled arms are connected to its body with small rails, where it withdraws and stores its tools. On its back appears to be a large synthesizer under its thick armour. Its female voice is robotic, and slightly distorted, yet clear and understandable.
How will you use this to better interact with crew and/or stimulate RP?
Being a weird, slightly snooty, but loyal and helpful Android, I feel like a chasis such as this really fits it. The chasis doesn't look too different from what other Engineering Androids look like, but is somewhat unique on its own. I feel like this sprite would draw interest, and generate more RP around the Android.
The sprites are completely made and coloured by kyres1 and given to me, who is an amazing spriter, and earns all the credit for them. I've the DMI files for the chasis coloured to fit other modules as well, and will PM them on request.
