Can someone explain something to me?
« on: December 16, 2008, 12:05:36 AM »
Is Dr. Weil's suit supposed to be biological or entirely robotic?  I always thought he was a human head connected to a robot body, and I distinctly remember reading that his armor was designed to keep his body from aging.  This all made perfect sense to me, until I saw his face get smashed in, which resembled something from the Terminator.  So is his brain human?  What part of him exactly is human?  He can't be a robot, because that wouldn't make any sense at all.

Also, there is this part.

His dying human body was hoisted into a rejuvenating armor. It's simply the case that the armor heals all dying human parts by exchanging them with machine. Thus, he, a human, gradually turned completely into machine.

Zan, I truly await the day where you say, "I have no [tornado fang]ing clue, Sub Tank.  Your question has left me stumped."

Yet that is not the case here.  Thanks, that clears a lot up.

Well granted, if you're locked away or something like that, I guess.  XD

I think he mentions his memories were transfered into "program data", so I guess his brain is robotical too

Did Model W inherit the healing ability too?

Cause that would mean it's far from being destryoed after falling into the ocean.

But there are just some maniacal, dangerous people who don't need to live forever.

Case in point, Dr. Weil.

It's probably the same day where you say "I have no [tornado fang]ing idea how to put tits on that, Zan. Your question has left me stumped"

That will truly be a rare event indeed.  And a sad day for everyone.

Initially his brain isn't mechanical, but by turning his memories into program data which his human brain is connected to, they ensure that even with his human brain dying, he would never forget.

As for immortality and punishment. Such a thing as imprisonment and the death penalty are pointless to the old man Dr. Weil who's already at the end of his human life. Because of his age, death is simply the easy way out for him.

Giving him immortality isn't about making him experience eternal life. It's about making him experience endless suffering. He has a human body that's constantly dying and reviving, thrown into a world without light and nature. He is simply driven insane with endless agony by that pain. Add to that him being far removed from civilized life and his armor lacking any of the capabilities it has now. He'd have to literally crawl back to Neo Arcadia, to his old lab, to get himself back into reasonable shape and stop the endless pain.

Keep in mind though, Weil's state of being at the end of Elf Wars is one not really known, but the above is the conclusion I came up with when brainstorming about the details of Elf Wars.

I'm probably shooting myself in the foot here, but Sub Tank probably can't put tits on tits. Which sooner or later I'll be stumped by sub tank's question.... unless he actually succeeds.

You forgot that most japanese baddies almost sound the same (Eggman and Weil both do, really). however, this ain't the case here. It's about Weil after his punishment, that drove him insane.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Now I have a question:

How advanced is the biotechnology during the MMZ era? Is Weil the only being that's a mix of biological and mechanical components?

Advanced enough to the point that they can just decide on a whim they want to give humans machine bodies.

I'm talking about ZX's human-repliroid integration. They were able to order a law and put it in effect fairly quickly after the events of ZERO4, this regardless of the immense technological dark age brought about Neo Arcadia's downfall. So, the technology is well developed, just never really employed. However, at the time of Elf Wars, it was a unique operation devised specifically for Dr. Vile.

Yet another question:

Do detailed maps of the world during the MMZ era exist? All I know of are little ingame maps like the Stage select screen in MMZ4.

The world map is identical to ours, as the continents did not change even after the Eurasia incident. For actual locations, your best is to take a world map and start fitting ZERO3's stage select on top of it. Some places can be reasonably concluded as being on specific continents. I think it's even possible to pin down AreaX-II as being in, or at least near, japan. Trying to figure out where Eurasia actually crashed is something better left to X6 than to ZERO4 though.
