Maybe for compatibility with the Joost mod, you should be able to craft the Fusion suit when fighting the SA-X? And the Fusion Suit should be able to absorb the X-Parasites unharmed?
If I remember correctly Joost did help make the mod to some degree

Not sure if there's a way to temporarily disable recall potions, but some event that's activated in hell that requires you to quickly get back to the surface without teleporting would be interesting. Maybe metroid fusion style where you have to go up then defeat a boss that spawns before time runs out.
With IL editing, it's possible, although such code is very advanced and can easily break things. I think IL editing is already used in the mod, so the devs are familiar with doing that.
Did anyone defeated moon lord? How did you guys did it?We are talking using strictly metroid gear of course
Sadly, I don't recall how I did it, but I know I did managed to pull it off. I most likely used beams from the celestial fragments and maybe an end game missile combo. At this point, you're highly mobile, likely to the point you can dodge the big laser without needing a flight mount.
Now all we need is a metroidlike custom map and we will have true metroidvania on our hands
I think one or two people in this thread mentioned working on their own, so we probably have it coming.

I've been loving the mod so far and can't wait to see more implementations like extra bosses and stuff and suits.

I encountered a weird bug but can't really explain how it happened or what triggered it. I noticed it during a solar eclipse

weapons are not working properly and are no longer piercing. Power bombs stop as soon as they hit anything solid and can be interrupted by anything getting too close. Difussion missiles stop spreading as soon as they hit something. I tried closing the game and leaving the world and they are still broken. I'm using the 64bit loader but it worked fine until today [Feb 20]

I removed all accesories and everything else i equipped from the mod (speed booster, charge beam, regular bombs, reserve tanks) still works properly

Edit: So it seems there's a new element in the newest thorium update that may have some conflict with the mod.

If I am not mistaken, 64Bit has issues with this mod. I think.
EDIT: Yep, it says it on the first page of this forum.

I wonder if you can make the dungeon and the temple into metroid areas, with both having greater chances of certain metroid items that are in progression, like post skeletron and pre golem items respectively

Started another playthrough with this mod with a focus on using the Hunter class. Was going to wait longer, but, I feel like doing it now. I have multiple major content mods loaded like Thorium, Mod of Redemption, and Elements Awoken. Yes, I know you normally shouldn't mix content mods due to numerous issues like unexpected bugs and balance between them being off, even if they aim for vanilla balance. I acknowledge and take reasonability for this. Besides, I'll be using the Hunter class weapons, armor, and many accessory slots, so those particular balance issues from multiple content mods will hardly be a factor. This mainly comes down to more content to try the class on. Like I'm curious to how far past ML I can go before the class is too weak.

Could the blue hatch doors allow opening from melee attacks, as in the ones that are not projectiles like how spears are? I know you can right click the hatches to open them and I know their text says opens from any projectile. To me it seems odd melee attacks can't open them. Maybe it caused issues and thus wasn't given support?

Also, from my other playthroughs with this mod, although not playing as Hunter class, I feel the Metroid spawn rate in the dungeon is too high, to the point if you massively increase spawn rate, they'll spawn so often as to take the spots of other dungeon enemies.

Edit: Wow, the Spazer beam is so powerful. With just that, you can absolutely destroy earlier bosses like KS and EoC. I did originally find it in the underground jungle, which may be considered sequence breaking, but I also found it in an underground crimson, which too may be considered a sequence break if you do it prior to EoC. At least I didn't get the Reaver Shark to mine hellstone per boss, I'll only go so far in sequence breaking. Well, high reward for a high risk in early underground jungle exploring, right? You also need to look around to get certain items like the Spider Ball since otherwise, you can't craft them till early hardmode.

I had a two fold suggestion. One: Allow bosses to have a chance to drop missle expansions, for people playing the mod in multiplayer and two: add more items to the chozo statues, there’s not enough variety. I would especially love it if you could get the armor sets from the chozo statues similar to the games

Now getting back to you since I just did the ML fight again in full Hunter gear, I find that you'll want a form of space jump to maintain height and the speed booster for a quick getaway like from lasers. Actually, I think you can dodge through lasers with careful timing. What I had was the beam weapon with the four celestial beams and charge beam v2. Charge your beam while waiting for the ML to expose parts of himself. You'll have homing, so you don't have to aim exactly to hit him. Took me a couple of tries, first time I wasn't entirely prepared, but he wasn't a very long fight for me. I didn't find missiles so useful.

Speaking of missiles, they seem pretty weak with the end game ones, at least the non-charged shots. The end game beams massively out pace missiles in DPS. Considering missiles are consumables and don't fire as fast for non-charged shots, I think they should be a lot stronger.

I second the suggestion for bosses to drop missile expansions. Could be just the first time you kill them. Actually, I swear the suggestion came up multiple times, again. Wow, I don't memory so good on this. I think the very first Metroid game did this. Not that it needs to be in Metroid to be in this mod, but it is a case to argue from. Although this again comes down to Metroid and Terraria being quite different genres and everything couldn't smoothly transfer over in an 1:1 fashion.

I totally forgot about this mod... but I am super happy to see it released in some capacity! Going to be trying it soon. Excellent work and congratulations on the release!
