    Also,what if you make a mini-"biome"?,like a laboratory where you can find some upgrades,the laboratory could have a lot of "futuristic" traps,(turrets that fire a laser,pipes or tubes that spawn enemies,etc).You can find chests with some boss summoners or even the metroid capsules

    If I was to do this, I could probably base it off of the restricted lab in Fusion. That way it would make sense to have the Metroid capsules there. Either that or I could make it like Mother Brains lair. (maybe even a mother brain boss inside :D)

    Just a suggestion, but an idea since all the suits are built on top of each other, have the set bonus effects stack. Maybe make the requirements more expensive to compensate, or require a certain accessory in their construction for it. The suits should definitely be based around ranged weapons for sure, it just fits most thematically with it.
    Also, as an example for building in accessories, putting the lava charm into the varia suit to fit with it being lava proof, the diving gear into the gravity suit to make it mobile in water, maybe night vision helmet used somewhere. Etc. It would make them less easy to build, but more satisfying to have, and more functional as well.

    Yeah, I like the idea of the diving gear in the gravity, the night vision in the power, and the lava charm in the varia. I also like the idea if having the bonuses stack. That way the armor upgrade doesn't feel like a downgrade.

    Maybe have the obsidian rose and obsidian skull for varia and use the magma charm and diving gear for gravity? It's fine if you don't want to, but it would be more consistent with their actual effects

    I'll probably go with that, as that does seem more accurate with the games effects.

    I had a couple people ask, so there is a discord now. This forum thread will stay the homepage though. Link

    Hey, this mod looks sick. I used to play Metroid and this will bring back some of that nostalgia.

    I don't suppose you could update the main post to include all the items currently in the mod? I was trying to disable it after I thought I got rid of everything, but as soon as I opened up my storage, the game I'm not sure what sneaky little item is doing it
