What materials have people used to make Power Armor? What are the common ways of construction, like plates held on a carrier or interlocked or large single pieces like clamshell? Also what nifty features are common for making it power armor, like I know lighting is frequent? Are helmets common and do they make it too hard to hear and say calls?
I honestly have tons of ideas but I question my ability to actually follow through. Part of me wants to mold ev foam and bond it to lexan plates and another wants to go polyurethane and yet another thinks fiberglass or molding. I like the idea of clamshell torso but elasticated plates on a backing would greatly increase comfort and mobility. And then any lighting takes power which needs a power pack which becomes a source of danger. Really the only thing I have decided so far because I don’t have ideas of practical use in game is the color (fs34257).
