You just can't concentrate because your tracker is all the wrong colours, so you burn through an entire day making a new skin and setting everything up just right.
…but a single element can't be recoloured, and it's bright right. :/
Free #gamedev idea: What if Gundam, Mech Warrior, Kerbal Space Program, Besiege, and TIS-100 had a baby?
Do a basic wartime plot, have a series of missions with different needs (recon over difficult terrain, mobile heavy artillery sniper, impromptu repair of oversized systems, outright battle), make the player build their own mech (as part of the tutorial), make every component scriptable.
Sandbox your bot until it works how you want (as part of mission prep), have a go at it.
