Make the Megachelon better at its job.

Make the Megachelon better at its job.

The appeal of a mobile base on one of these was awesome, but after taming them I found them very lacking. I and many others were expecting it to work like a vaccuum chamber underwater, but it just gives oxygen, not so useful in an area where you can hold your breath for 15 mins and there's bubbles to breathe. I understand this may not have been a possibility to make though.

But they simply still are bad as a base. They have limited weight and are targeted by every aggressive dino, which they cant even fend off. They have such a slow turn they struggle to even hit enemies, and simply cant even fight back when not ridden. Additionally it can be stunned, which I find odd considering turtles eat jellyfish. As a base you can't even build over 2 walls high. A raft has basically none of these problems, is faster, supports turrets, and can be made within minutes of spawning. If you wanna go underwater with a platform the mosa and plesi and way faster and can actually kill things.

I don't see much use outside a flower garden and a bullet sponge.

While I agree that it should have been similar to a vacuum chamber (normal gravity/movement, clear vision, etc.) I've found it to be an excellent mobile base. Exclusively leveling health and weight is a must, and having an escort of a few megalodons or a mosa easily handles other predators. Its proved to be a much more stable mobile base, and one that I used as my only base well into the endgame. It's important to note that any manned turret is operable on the turtle, and all farm plots are automatically irrigated. I built a greenhouse onto the back of my formidable cabin, ensuring I had food and special recipes available whenever I need them. Being able to traverse both land and water make it particularly useful as well, and it can collect berries and particularly fiber at an awesome rate.
