Human Mech is currently disabled from the game. Assets for this exist within the game files, but will not be encountered through normal gameplay.

Human Mech was a mech type vehicle which was enabled using tech. The Human Mech was the first mech designed and announced for Starbound. It allowed players to move, drill and attack in a mechanized suit.

An early version of it was included on the FAQ page, in the question
The Original Version of the X5C-1

<– Will I be able to ride this?

Yup! :o"

It was later updated to the last version of the Mech, which was shown in a daily update by Tiy. [1] Soon after Rho shared the new animation on Twitter, revealing the name as well as its origin. The name came from the naming syntax that Rhopunzel uses for versions of work, and the filename "mechx5c-1" was one that stood out as 'cool'.[2]

The mech was later redesigned to change the view from a straight ahead to a semi-side view to aesthetically match the art style for other objects.

The techs that summoned beta mechs were removed from the game, while the mech vehicles themselves were left disabled in the game assets. Modular mechs were later implemented in update version 1.3.0.
