Re: A question regarding the GBL intro

it also could have been possible the Kodiak was on an underground elevator under the snow, and was quickly elevated when the Mad Dog was detected by the base sensors. The snow/ice didn't look dense enough in which a 100T mech would have much problems breaking thru, just like how Submarines in our ti...

Re: Mechwarrior 2's chief programmer, Eric Peterson.

oh wow...didnt see this before. Rest in Peace. I think Repromancer did drop by our community and even flashed some MW2 code before? MMPD would remember. I thought I saw someone say he lived in La Jolla, CA -- which is where I work. I always thought about the random chance I would have been able to a...

Re: New program in the works for the community.

i believe MYG became a father a few years back, so i'm sure he had to shift his attention to being a family man, and maybe focus his programming efforts on work. I'm sure if you work as a Programmer, you kinda get burnt out to do more programming in your free/non-working time plus personal obligations

Re: Nukes, what were they for?

in Derf (netmech map), and i think at least 1 single player mission, there is a (nuclear?) plant that you destroy and need to get out of the blast range. maybe the "Nuke" weapon was used to facilitate the explosion, and eventually used as the Arrow IV weapon in GBL/Mercs

Re: Effectiveness of Machine Guns?

A lot of people used Machine Guns in Class 4 games, on Mplayer (2x missile racks or ACs max, and unlimited laser+mgun). They do deal a lot of quick damage, but are severely limited in ammo and range. In the battletech board game, mguns weren't used so much to lay out a ton of damage, but to be criti...

Re: BattleTech Kickstarter (already successful)

Re: Very rough draft of mech2 board video

Hey EH Kudos on the efforts! Here is my feedback Music felt nice, video needs to match the tempo. Start the video with something more recognizable to the Mechwarrior universe. Maybe an external view of a Timber Wolf, zooming in closer. Sure Timber Wolf is probably so overused for MW stuff, but you w...

Re: Your Alternate Battletech History: 3025

I think I would be with the Lyran Commonwealth (House Steiner). I would convince the Free Worlds League (House Marik) to work together and push against the Capellan Confederation (House Liao). Looking at the 3025 map, and not looking into strategic values of each planet (i.e. resources, mech plants,...

Your Alternate Battletech History: 3025

The year is 3025, and the 3rd Succession War has ended ( http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Third_Succession_War ). The Clans would not invade for many years to come, and the Inner Sphere looks like this: http://cf.sarna.net/data/planets/iscs/iscs_jp_3025.pdf Federated Suns and Lyran Commonwealth are not uni...

Re: Favorite Mech Game

While I do love Mechwarrior 2 (mw2), I would actually say Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries was the best of the Mechwarrior Series up until MWO. any of the mech 2 series beats the others hands down. it is the directional JJs that turn the game into a bunch of pilots instead of robot drivers. You've used th...
