I love the view looks really awesome =D It's so dynamic then the usual mech standing straight up view lol. Any tips on where you should start shading a mech? I have a mech drawing done already, but it's just line art without any shading and I only use black and white.

Is it a Digital Art or Traditional Art? Im not very fond with Traditional Art but if you want to do something Digitally I can help you abit, when it comes to shading a Mecha it's all a matter of the shape that you have render, so you have to keep in mind about the depth of the picture and the shadowed areas/highlighted areas

I find it much worse than FA, many players are in disappoint for this new episode, its kinda a step backward...

Well then:

alright, the main feature in ACV is the Online mode, the offline mode is really poor, there are 2 types of missions in the offline mode:
Order Mission - (short and crappy mission where you fight against dozens of normal enemies or 1vs1 AC battles)
Story Mission - (long and pretty annoying mission where you have to defeat opponents and complete few tasks, the storytelling isnt very exciting and the lore is pretty poor)

Customization:
there are many parts, roughly the same number of FA but the stats have been simplified perhaps too much and usually you end up with ALOT of parts that are useless... while your main AC's uses always the same 2-6 components regardless of your role or AC weight.... there is no more AC Tuning and there are no Stabilizer parts... nor Optional Parts, there is only a very crappy "performance" system that lets you enhanche your weapon parameters.
You need to buy the weapon, choose the "Spec" and then use that weapon few times in missions to make the statistics rise... the statistics rises randomly so you may end up with a good weapon or with a complete piece of trash.. its a BIG timewasting system, fortunately you can buy other player's weapons from the shop so you can save your time on that duty.
The parts design is also pretty poor, many parts have clones with some minor changes... like you may see a torso with 1 shield on the front then you will the same torso WITOUTH the shield on the front or with some more pieces like a shield some small metal armoring on the back, that how the design works...

There are no more "Corportations" the battle is all contended between THE Father (with the aid of "The Corporation") and the player's faction "The Resistance"...

The gameplay mechanics are completely retweaked and they look different from all the previous AC games, you cant fly freely into the sky for example... instead you have to jump on the buildings to gain altitude! the quickboosts have been nerfed and now when you use them they usually impair your AC movements for some brief moments (wich is still very annoying) and the AC lock-on system is abit more similiar to the old PS2 episodes, but the lock-on size is still smaller than the usual

There are no more back weapons, instead there are "hangar weapons", basically you equip 4 Arm weapons and 2 of those are kept inactive on the shoulder "clip", shoulder weapons/extensions and inside weapons have been merged into Shoulder Slot Weapons.

the online mode is pretty funny and respectable but there have been many problems with cheaters and such, ruining sayd mode, 1 vs 1 battles have been dumped down by the lack of a solid customization and a fair parts/weapon balance ending up with a small variety of builds

in the end, ACV is a completely new AC game with unique features to the AC series, the problem is that sayd features seems to be either pretty broken or unpractical and gives an awkward feel to the game that seems like a BETA game that needed more development...
