Custom World - Now Make Skirmish Environments of Your Own!

Post by Col.Kell » Sat Jul 18, 2009 2:22 pm

Ever wanted to make a world of your own? Have you wanted to add a twist on the environments of the ToG levels? Well this mod is for you. With it, you can use existing BWD files, mix and match them, and get a world of your own liking! All with simply renaming files when you want a new environment!

Yup. When you install the mod, you launch on the same planet you see in the screenshot.

Why? Are you wanting the mod to be altered for campaign use or something?

I said it before, and I say it again: the reason I have not made any netmech maps is because there are so few geometry options to pick from in the NET.PRJ file.

...But, I didn't think of it... we could just mod the PLT1 (planet) files. In case you don't know what that is, Pepsi, its the BWD file that gives the world its gravity, temperature, and more importantly; the color pallete. Which means maybe we could do a small mod and give Alshain a snowy makeover... maybe the netmech'ers can give their input on other things. (LIKE WHO WANTS TO SPAWN FROM THE SKY AND JUMP-JET-TOUCHDOWN!!! :mrgreen: )

high altitude drops would be fun


i think a roving faster spawn would really change the game a good bit

Now the spawning points I can change in netmech. I tried high-alltitude drops in some single-player experiments, and it was fun falling at 1,200kmph! :D (one ouchee of a dfa)

I have some things on my plate this week. I'll start testing this later.

Should this be added to the list of "Recommended Mods" (Sorry Kell, your vote won't count...)? I didn't have the time to test it yet ...
Download MechVM

If you have problems with MechVM, please attach the files MechVM.cfg and install-report.txt from the folder where MechVM installed your game.

do you think it would be possible to....


for FFA maps, have the spawns change each time you spawn

for team maps, have the spawn change each spawn, but still stay in a relatively same area

or would it be a change them before the drop is made
