Gameplay seems solid. Although headshots might be a little too common. In just two skirmish games, I've had three mechs get head-capped. Maybe I'm just (un)lucky.

Yeah I just did my first skirmish, 18 turns, my lance was a Vindicator, two Shadow Hawks, and a Griffin against a Hunchback, Commando, Orion, and something else I can't recall and I got headcapped twice almost immediately.

Heads up, ALL the Mech files are JSON, meaning there's a chance we could be able to add variants to the game that aren't currently there, or even aren't included in the full game.

I smell possibilities! Messing around with them right now, to add some pilots.

They said from the start that they don't care how people hack up the game, just that why won't add tools to do so.

Not responsible if you mess this up and need to reinstall etc.
1. Backup any file you mod here.
2. ​ok if you want to make your own mw atm only way i can find is to replace the existing faces, to do that you need to get UABE which was originally made for modding 7 days to die, 2.1 with 2.1d + the 5.6.0f3 package type. They can be found simply by searching google for Unity Assets Bundle Extractor or here : https://7daystodie.com/forums/showt...undle-Extractor
3. once installed (unzipped) open up data\assetbundles​\mwportraits​ it will say this bundle file is compressed! do you wish to unpack it. (back it up first!)
4. hit yes. and save it as say mwportraits_uncompressed
5. you will now see someting like CAB-543524254213421234ab2ea16c etc in the drop down
6. click info, you will see the assets, find the texture you want to replace click plugins
7. export to png, save it, open in photoshop make your edits save it
8. to import click plugins - edit
9. load - select texture file.
10. ok.
11. close, save - MWportraits
12. open up Battletech and go to the MW list and it should have worked.

Thank you, my gentlegoon.

If the AI is retardedly good, I'm sure as gently caress going to be save scumming. You don't go through the efforts of making goon pilots / people you know with the intention of killing them unless they're Ohsh.

First campaign mission I"m putting Vdub and Skoll in twin locusts and doing pirouettes in front of a heavy tank.

In that situation, you know I'd leg veedub, right?

I've had a goon lance plotted out since Nov. 2015 though and yeah if the game is great and I lost them in amazing battles I'll accept that, but if like some random second turn headshot cores out my mechs cockpit early or mid game? That's kinda BS and I'mma save scum that. Personally, I think it will be badass to have some pilots that are like half cyborg or some poo poo and I acknowledge some loss is inevitable, but you don't want it to be for nothing.

So tactical strategy games are pretty few and far between, is it not reasonable to compare them with each other and perhaps say "Yeah this feels like too much of a copy of this other franchise " for me, or is that a level of analysis we as regular scrubs dare not engage in?

My mistake. Age of Empires, Supreme Commander, Dawn of War series, Total War, Medieval, Halo Wars, Command and Conquer, the original Warcraft games, they were all few and far between.

Everything is Xcom.
