Fighting against his fate, he studied mech design in order to express his love for mechs as a builder instead of a soldier. When Ves graduated from college, he returned to a new but empty boutique. Left with a small, newly founded mech workshop that his father painstakingly built with a mountain of debt, Ves somehow needs to make ends meet with the bank breathing down his neck. In the midst of his despair, he found salvation from another legacy his father had left. "Welcome to the Mech Designer System.

    Zaman Mech telah tiba! Sayangnya, Ves Larkinson tidak memiliki bakat genetik untuk menjadi seorang pilot mech ternama. Melawan takdirnya, dia mempelajari desain mech untuk menunjukkan kecintaannya terhadap mech dengan cara lain dan membat ayahnya bangga. Saat Ves lulus kuliah, dia kembali ke sebuah butik kosong yang baru. Ayahnya telah menghilang. Diwarisi sebuah bengkel kecil yang dibuat dengan susah payah oleh ayahnya dengan segudang hutang yang baru ditemukannya, Ves entah bagaimana perlu memenuhi kebutuhan sementara bank mengawasinya dengan dekat. Lalu dia menemukan keselamatan dari warisan satu lagi yang ditinggalkan oleh ayahnya. “Selamat datang di Sistem Desain Mech. Silahkan disain mech barumu.”

Konnect: I think of it as the “actual”/“baseline” requirements are the spiritual/mental changes & the “beaurocratic”/“legal” requirements are the ones imposed by the MTA, & by the time the MTA’s requirements are fulfilled they’ve already fulfilled the actual requirements along the way.

Stark3: One of the best written sci fi web novels out there. The initial chapters introducing the Mech Design System is clunky and requires a lot of suspension of disbelief, but going forward you get a very solid mech-based story.

I'm a fan of the Battletech universe. That said, reading this novel is like looking at it from the non combatant's point of view, tackling mech design choices, and how they're able to contribute to battles without being the main pilot.

I especially love the detail that goes into it, from the various mech components up to the design philosophy that leads to an original mech.

The only caveat for me is that I don't especially like the character, as he's becoming increasingly more Machiavellian as the story goes on. But then I guess at least he's not your generic do-gooder MC, and at least you can see his progression.

Highly recommended

lost_meaning: This is a story with a system where he grows smarter and builds better - mech warfare being a thing with the necessity of war and partial cultivation in the hopes of being the strongest designer of them all. one step at a time.

CANAAN: It's a really good story. I'm not ally a space opera fan but fell in love with the crafting of the story. Later it turns into a space opera which is great but continues for too long putting the crafting charme on the backburner.

Overall its just a really good novel, which is why it currently holds the highest rating I have ever given.

That said, it's more expensive than buying a paperback novel series if read on here. Later on normal ss won't do either and you will have to get the privilege thing... That makes it very expensive or a very long wait and grind for ss...


The crafting stage is worth it, but after the draft. This story becomes a whole other beast. A beast that's also worth it. However due to the difference between these two segments, not everyone will like the one or the other.

As such it might not hold your interest if the other is not your cup of tea

Zug: TMT, is a wonderful work of science fiction. Unlike the majority of works on this platform that are filled with regurgitated poop, TMT is a breath of original fresh air. That said there are some very long filler arcs and painfully slow story development so I recommend heavily skipping in certain areas of the novel. Exlor does a good job of bringing his vision to life.

The novel has excellent world building, relatable characters, a solid release schedule, somewhat realistic technology, minimal hobo magic, a deeper look into the business side of things that most novels gloss over, Space opera and political intrigue albeit limited in scope, subterfuge, and wonderfully delicious plot twists. I have been following this story since its infancy and I can safely say Exlor has come a long way. If Exlor makes any other scifi works in the future, even on other platforms, I am likely to read them.

FatCat: I rarely give 5 stars rating but this is the book that I'm actually willing to pay for. Superb story telling with realistic characters and plotlines. Even a mystical "System" has logical roots and has an actual storyline - not just a cheat-and-forget advantage like other novels.

Great use of english and extremely stable output of 3 chapters everyday.

Did i also mention there's a cute and powerful cat?

Do give this story a go - you wont regret it

TheMaddestMan: One of the best novels on Webnovel. I wait eagerly for each update, I could easily read 1000+ chapters of this quality and world building. The people complaining about slow pacing are just whiny that they’ve run out of chapters to read. I’ve never spent money on Webnovel, but to get the premium chapters for this novel I have been really considering it. If content continues to be as gripping as it has been, I’ll likely give in at some point.

Felix_Ng_3523: Its a fairly good series with some major flaws.

The world building is good and the characters are fairly interesting.
However, the pacing is absolutely atrocious. The story has a lot of unnecessary fluff and progress is ridiculously slow at times to the point where the story becomes mundane.

The main character also progresses fairly slowly considering all the perks he has. To be fair he doesn't seem particularly talented and he slacked off initially but the system gives him such huge advantages to the point where his baseline abilities (intelligence, creativity, etc are top tier). His decision making is also very questionable at times for someone who is supposed to be so intelligent. Its very infuriating.
He does seem to improve on this a bit later at least.

panda2332: Greatly enjoyed reading this novel so far. The battle at the front was kind of long and some of the chapters I'm too much of an explanation or description, but overall it's a five out of five I look forward to reading a chapter every day.

Fleet: As others have stated, this novel is very much a slow burn with rather slow progression and more detail on the finer details such as worldbuilding.

Conceptually, I find this aspect of the story most interesting which is very high praise considering I'm more into fantasy over sci-fi/mechs. The level of detail is just right, in my opinion. Though it does tend to stress certain concepts several times, it doesn't feel repetitive unlike in a certain sword god novel.

I noted that certain arcs felt 'slow' at the time, but looking back, they're very much necessary in how they contribute to worldbuilding and the overall plot.

Character development is rather good for this reason as well as being a non-plot-driven slow-burn. Other characters are distinct in their characteristics and dialogue and it's not just a slew of side characters.

I'd definitely recommend giving this novel a shot.

chromaticleaf: I rather enjoy this story. Its more of a slow burn in terms of pacing, which can understandably be a bit frustrating. I'm actually not a super big fan of the actiony bits where Ves gets personally involved, but I understand their importance within the context of the story. I started reading this story because I was looking for something a bit more relaxed compared to the normal fare that I read.

The MC often has many conflicting goals so it often feels like he's dragging his feet a bit, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. I don't believe its ever been stated that Ves is a super driven person, so bouts of procrastination aren't uncommon and serve to make him seem more realistic. I don't think said dragging of feet has ever been particularly egregious, but at the same time I binged 350+ of the chapters at once so my perspective may be a bit skewed as a result.

Since I've caught up to the most recent chapters, the story's been updating at a pace of two per day, so I think the updating pace is pretty stable.

I think the supporting cast is fine, but the story is definitely very focused on Ves himself. We know the names of other characters and a bit of their backstories/motivations, but we don't go super in depth about them. I would say this is an area that could be improved upon, but not something that really detracts from the overall quality of the story itself.

As for the World Background, we've been given glimpses into the universe as a whole outside of the small bubble the story's been primarily focused on. As a result, we know there is a greater universe with other planets/characters/aliens out there waiting to be explored.
From my recollection, I don't believe there's been too many lore dumps. As things become relevant, Ves (and we as readers) learn more about them, but never really to a truly overwhelming extent.

All in all, I think this is a fun story that's trying to be a bit different from the normal fare on this site. From that context, I believe the story I've given is fair. There's room for improvement, but nothing that detracts significantly from its overall quality. I think if you enjoy Superstars of Tomorrow this will be something you might enjoy as well.

RoyalDerp: The story is interesting so far and I find it enjoyable and moving at a decent pace. I would recommend it for anyone who likes mechs and stuff like that. The sassy system that tells its host that they are "idiots who cant solve their own problems" is also a great plus in my eyes.

I like the parts about politics and human relationships the most, they are very realistic and thus show the author's intelligence.

Straw_Hat: The characters have lots of depth. It's not like other novels where the MC is always a hero, all powerful entity...this is a journey..here MC fails..learns..adapt and overcome the problem... This should become a TV series if not a anime series at the very least.
