The Droid Status

Droid status

This section of the screen is used to display the current status of each droid.

  1. The position of the droid among the group
  2. Its life level
  3. Its power level
  4. Its leader state
  5. The damage level

The first two icons at the top represent which droids are in the front of the group and the other two at the bottom represent those that are in the back of the group.  Those at the front will receive most damage, so it's important that these two droids have good armors.  If a droid has too much damage, you can move it to the back.  To move a droid among the group, click its icon with the left mouse button, and then click again to where you want it to be.

The first bar is the life level.  If it gets too low, some components of the robot will stop to function.  If it completely drains, the droid dies.  A damaged or dead droid need repairs from a shop to work again.

The second bar is the power level.  If it completely drains, the robot will cease to function.  You will not be able to do anything with it.  Power can be restored by using an electric wall socket or by using a battery.

The leader of the group is represented by a crown.  The hand that is moved around with your mouse is the hand of the leader and the main view is what is seen by the leader.  If your main view is fuzzy, it's because your leader has too much damage to its head and you need to pick another leader until repair is done.  Since the leader is feeding the view to you, it will lose power while the main view is displayed. Power does not drain while looking at the inventory, skills or shops, unless you have activated the main view display from the remote control.

During a fight, an icon will display the amount of damage inflicted to a droid.

Damage

If you wonder who's doing the "Argh!" sound when damage is done, it is none other than the programmer himself. He created all the samples.

Clicking an icon with the right mouse button will display the inventory and status of the droid.
