    =====================================================================
    I. Introduction
    =====================================================================
    
    Gameplay in Steambot Chronicles, the fantastic non-linear adventure
    from Irem/Atlus, is dictated by your Trotmobile.  This "big hunk of
    moving iron" is what gets you from place to place and what protects
    you from the vicious bandits and other ill-mannered persons blocking
    your way.  Therefore, it's always a good idea to soup up your Trot --
    by equipping it with the best frames available, of course!  This guide
    will list all of the frames available in the game (and many that are
    not so available) and tell you what they do and how/where to get them.
    
    =====================================================================
    II. Frame Basics
    =====================================================================
    
    There are six types of frames in the game: body, leg, arm, grill, back,
    and roof.  Body frames are the most important, as they account for
    the major part of your Trotmobile's weight and HP; by equipping larger
    body frames, you can carry more weight on your Trotmobile, throw
    larger objects (and opponents), and will not be thrown yourself as
    easily.  Leg frames determine the speed, evasive ability, and
    carrying capacity of your Trotmobile.  Note that not all leg frames
    are capable of handling all types of terrain, and there are marked
    differences in the relative speed and weight capacity of all leg
    frame types:
    
    - Bird Legs are the fastest and handle all types of terrain, but
      cannot carry much weight.
    
    - Human Legs are not as fast as Bird Legs and cannot handle water
      and desert as well as Bird Legs, but can carry more weight.
    
    - Wheeled frames are as fast as Bird Legs on smooth terrain (roads,
      plains, grassland), but struggle on rugged terrain.  They carry
      as much weight as Human Legs of the same weight class.
    
    - Spider Legs are adept at handling any terrain.  However, they
      are not as fast as Bird Legs on non-desert terrain.
    
    - Horse Legs carry even more weight than Human Legs L and are not
      hampered by any terrain types.  They are, however, slower than
      Human Legs and have some difficulty moving laterally.
    
    - The Caterpillar leg frame is extremely slow but is the heaviest
      (and therefore carries the most weight) of all leg frames.
    
    Also note that you cannot enter deep water without the Water Resistant
    M body frame equipped on your Trotmobile.  When in deep water, having
    either the Bird Flippers or Human Flippers leg frames equipped will
    allow you to move faster.
    
    Arm frames are generally used to attack and defend.  Note that most
    arm frames will break down with continued usage and will eventually
    become non-functional unless repaired.  Refer to the durability
    gauges on the top-right of the screen (the ammunition counter for
    shooting arm frames).  There are three types of arm frames: strike,
    shooting, and shield.  Strike arm frames are melee weapons that
    depend on making direct contact to inflict damage; shooting arm
    frames fire projectiles to damage their targets from a distance,
    and shield arm frames are defensive: if you block an attack while
    equipped with a shield arm frame, you take no damage (instead of
    reduced damage otherwise).  Note that shield arm frames only
    take damage if they're used to block -- attacking with a shield
    arm does not decrease the arm frame's durability. Thus, shield arm
    frames make useful last-resort melee weapons, especially in long
    fights against bosses with massive amounts of hit points.  Also
    note that, except for shooting arm frames (which use an ammunition
    counter instead of a durability gauge), arm frames do not lose
    durability if your attack does not connect with an enemy.
    
    Grill frames provide lighting for your Trotmobile and are also
    commonly used to add "personality" to your hunk o' iron.  There is
    a class of grill frames with the "attack" function type: these
    frames, when equipped, will change your dash attack animation and
    enhance dash attack damage.
    
    Back frames are generally used in passenger and trade good ferrying.
    Passengers can only be carried if you have a Carriage back frame
    equipped, and each trade good can only be carried with a specific
    back frame (Tank, Flatbed, Basket).  You can obtain a wide version
    of each of the four "common" back frames by combining two of the 
    same back frame at any garage/pit stop.  Equipping a back frame on
    your Trotmobile increases your fuel capacity.
    
    Roof frames are entirely ornamental.  Since your total HP and base
    dash attack power is calculated from your total weight, it is
    advisable to equip a heavier roof frame to maximize both stats.
    
    You may carry up to four of most common frames.  You may carry two
    each of Normal Body S and Normal Body M frames and only one Normal
    Body L frame and one Bowgun Arm frame.  Obviously, you can only
    carry one of each unique frame in the game, since you can only
    find one (the lone exception being the Scrap Arm frame, which you
    can find two copies of in the game).  Unique frames are those not
    available for purchase or V-medal redemption.
    
    The next six sections will list all you need to know about any
    frame in the game.  Frames are listed alphabetically for easy
    searching and referencing.  Frames listed as "N/A" under the
    "Obtained" heading are not available for acquisition in the game.
    These are generally custom frames unique to certain NPCs. Frames
    listed as "Develop" under the "Obtained" heading can be developed
    at any pit stop/garage in the game unless noted otherwise.  You will
    lose any frames or trade goods used to develop the new frame, and you
    will have to pay a monetary fee in order to develop the new frame.
    To develop a frame that uses a trade good as an ingredient (Shark,
    Silk, Steel Beam), simply equip the necessary back frame and carry
    the required trade good on that back frame when you go develop the
    frame.  Note that you may only carry one of any of the "unique"
    developed frames (Powered Human Legs, Throwing Arm, Whip Arm), which
    are those that cannot be developed at pit stops and garages.

    Notes: From Matthew Travis - "Bird legs S actually have a weight of 80
           not the 90 stated in the description in game.  If you look at
           the weight category in the replace parts screen it says 80
           despite saying 90 below.  And if you add the weights of parts
           up, it should result in the legs being 80.  It must have been a
           typo in localization."
