  206. >NEA, did you say you had some sort of new warship related OC? What did you do now?
  207.  
  208. I've been futzing around with a master list of all named canon WarShips, since as far as I can tell, the one that was on the OF is gone.
  209.  
  210. Really, I've just been stripping/repainting WarShip minis, and I needed to know what factions had what ships, and I couldn't find a resource. So I spend 6-7 hours and made one. It's almost certainly not 100% comprehensive, if for no other reason than there's a bunch of recently published stuff (post-WoR) I didn't completely go through, but it's certainly close.
  211.  
  212. >https://www.mediafire.com/?mgf6jmh76168xm6
  213.  
  214. Make sure you read the notes, it'll help explain why certain choices were made; notably regarding tracking ships with multiple owners and regarding "Entered Service" dates. And yes, I should have included a field for HOW a ship left active service (lost, destroyed, changed owner, etc), but I didn't think of that till I was ~600 entries in and I wasn't going to go back and add all that back in.
  215.  
  216. Sheet 1 is the master list, then basically every faction with 3+ WarShips to its name gets a sub-page. The Clans get a single page, because I was genuinely tired of the project and didn't want to make a separate sub-page for each goddamn Clan.
  217.  
  218. Enjoy.

  225. Anons, for those of you who use MHQ religiously, would you like an image pack that contains almost all the mechs and most of the vehicles and Aero units for fluff purposes? So that if you don't totally know the name, you can look at the art?

  233. From Xotl: - - “This (above) does a pretty good job of explaining it, and giving you some free, deliberately simplified stuff to start with. Base BattleTech is the highest-detail game: you commonly run just one war machine per player, although experienced guys can run a few more at once. The mechanics of the game are very simple: rolling 2D6 does everything. It's the many many situational modifiers and rules that gives it depth. The rule-set is somewhat modular, in that a lot of the complexity comes from environments and extra unit types that you can ignore until you're ready for them, or just ignore them altogether if you don't care about, say, aerospace fighters or basic infantry in your giant robot game.
  234.  
  235. If you want a more 40K feel, there's Alpha Strike, which boils down a mech's entire-page stats to just a little card's worth.
  236.  
  237. There is a very good box set, but it's currently between printings; the link shows you a picture of it.
  238.  
  239. Feel free to ask any more questions here or on the BT official forums. When BT players aren't screaming at each other about factions they're pretty welcoming to new blood.”

  406. So, I got some mechs working in HBSBT that aren't actually enabled by default (the Blackjack, Enforcer, Cataphract, and Firestarter) and let me tell you what, the Firestarter is a fucking bitch and a half. There's a reason flamers aren't actually in the beta, and that's because they're fucking rape trains. Turns out that four Panthers vs four Firestarters wasn't close or even fair for that matter. Once I closed, the Panthers just couldn't win. At one point, I had all three remaining Panthers stunlocked by fire, including one that was standing in a river (that one took two Firestarters, to be fair). Jesus, I hope flamers are balanced for the release version.
  407.  
  408. Step 0: Have Notepad++. This is important.
  409. Step 1: Go into Steam\steamapps\common\BattleTech - Private Beta\BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\data and find the folders \mech and \chassis
  410. Step 2: In \mech you'll find mechdef files. In mechdef_firestarter_FS9-H, you'll need to change this section to match the following:
  411. "ChassisID": "chassisdef_firestarter_FS9-H",
  412. "MechTags": {
  413. "items": [
  414. "unit_mech",
  415. "unit_light",
  416. "unit_release_ksbeta",
  417. "unit_role_scout"
  418. ],
  419. "tagSetSourceFile": ""
  420.  
  421. Specifically, you need "unit_release_ksbeta" under "items".
  422.  
  423. Step 3: In \chassis you'll need to find chassisdef_firestarter_FS9-H and change this line: "PrefabIdentifier" to read "chrPrfMech_firestarterBase-001",
  424.  
  425. Save both files. You should now have access to the Firestarter. The model isn't complete, but it works well enough (and is broken as fuck since flamers are OP as hell).

  431. 2017-06-20 - - MECH HOCKEY: -
  432.  
  433. Seriously though... are there any rules written up for 'mech hockey available?
  434. NEA made some. It works reasonably well, though it presumes some hockey knowledge ahead of time.
  435.

  437. Touring the Stars: Noisel has it, along with 'mech chess, baseball, soccer, football/rugby, and basketball. The rules look relatively simplified compared to NEA's hockey linked here >>53917272, to the point that hockey, soccer, and basketball are functionally very similar.

  449. 2017-07-25 - - Coleman / Porch bux explained
  450.  
  451. Short version: Loren Coleman is one of the CGL owners, and he had access to the company funds. He withdrew somewhere in the region of 850K from its finances that can't be accounted for and also had renovation work including a porch addition done at the same time.
  452.  
  453. He claimed to have accidentally mixed up company and personal money, and the head of the company was his best friend who issued a statement that it was unintentional but that's OK because it was forgiven any way so he didn't have to pay it back.
  454.  
  455. Several staff, mostly from Shadowrun because the BT guys are friends with Coleman, wound up quitting over it, including an accountant who freelanced for the SR writing team and investigated the books. She said she couldn't work for a company that wouldn't get rid of Coleman after what he'd done and Randall said "OK, bye."
  456.  
  457. CGL has, in a lot of ways, never recovered from this. The extra 850K would have let them hire better manufacturers for boxed sets and so on, would have let them pay writers and artists on time and properly (assuming they weren't just FASA-level fuckups at that), keep Leviathans alive, and so on.

  598.  
  599. You can also just take a square image and compress it down to around 150x150px in paint
  600.  
  601. When you have the image, just copy it into your MekHQ\data\images\portraits\Male or Female folder, then it should be available next time you boot up MekHQ, your new guys will have more diverse faces

  632. (NEA) - - For anybody who cares, I spent a slow day not long ago creating 200 new female soldier portraits for AtB. All are sized to 150x150, so drop them into your portraits folder and reload AtB, and they should work fine.
  633.  
  634. >http://www.mediafire.com/file/guer93fncgokuaf/Female_Soldier_Portrait_Pack.rar/file
  635.  
  636. >jesus christ fuck pintrest
  637. >Bonus: so the portrait pack will also be useful for Canopian and a certain subset of Drac players, a single *confirmed* trap in military gear was included in the 200 images. Good luck.
  638.  
  639. I'm working on another male soldier pack as well, but it's harder to find pictures which don't look ridiculously alike when sized down to 150 pixels square. Soft caps, beard, sunglasses, and shemaghs make up the face of about 75% of the images I find these days.
  640. &
  641. OK, male soldier pack is done. A few more images this time, though honestly it was easier to find the female soldier pics. So many male soldier pics are either in B&W or of poor photo quality or both, compared to the plethora of pics of women. Granted, female combat(ish) soldiers really only became a "common" thing roughly the same time modern digital cameras because cheap and easy to carry, so it stands to reason that one wouldn't have to wade through 100s of blurry pics from the 1940s-1980s to track those down.
  642.  
  643. Anyway, here's the link for 250 images (the surprise this time is I'm included in there at least one time, good luck finding 2004-2007-era me in a uniform**):
  644. >http://www.mediafire.com/file/lem9afdsybin9id/Male_Soldier_Portrait_Pack.rar/file
  645.  
  646. And repeating the earlier link just to put them both in one place (200 images here):
  647. >http://www.mediafire.com/file/guer93fncgokuaf/Female_Soldier_Portrait_Pack.rar/file
  648.  
  649. Thanks to the anon who suggested looking for Soldier of Fortune magazine. I didn't find the digital copies, but that search DID put me on track for a good bunch of pics from the 1980s bush conflicts, which works out to being about the same thing, and it's what pushed this album over the top enough to share. Kudos.

  655. Well, I said I'd put this up early in the new thread, and since shitposting has brought a new thread upon us, here you go:
  656.  
  657. ~1800 AtB portraits. Roughly half are mine, half are the AwesomeAnon's who did the well-known "Token" set. There's also a couple dozen in there from various sources, but the vast majority are from AA or myself. I don't have any of the Ink Effect portraits in there, because...well, I hate them.

Having some issues with Mediafire though where it's just sitting there preparing when I try to upload the combined AB pack of 50 images. Each individual one went up fine though. here's the links.

  692. Hey /Btg/
  693.  
  694. I just wanted to pop in for a bit to try and wrangle some of you who might be looking for games into mekwars!
  695.  
  696. Does a campaign style series of games sound interesting, with salvage, pilot experience and all that good shit sound interesting? Then jump in and give it a shot, there are currently two servers, 3025 and 2750's (called Dominion) and I think they are working on a Clan/jihad one as well,
  697.  
  698. The main problem, to be frank, is the lack of players... Battletech isn't exactly mainstream and Megamek is a niche in our niche community hence my rude little interruption. Just google mekwars servers and you should be all set.
  699.  
  700. See you there, hopefully.
  701. http://www.mekwars.org/mwtracker.html
  702. simply click on the one you want and It'l take you to the proper site.
  703.  
  704. Legends 2.0 is under construction
  705. MMNet is 3025
  706. Dominions is 2750 and my favorite of the two

  716. 1-150 Random generated and grabbed whatever I thought looked cool, whether cute, dark, homicidal, or a mix
  717.  
  718. 151-300 Darker pics in tone and expression in general and tried to select for militaryish look, homicidal tendencies, wounded, and generally not smiling
  719.  
  720. 301-425 -Faction Color Pack- Selected based on hair and eye color/general appearance/overall pic color
  721. Cap- 25 Green
  722. Davion- 25 Blond
  723. Kurita- 25 Red
  724. Marik- 25 Purple
  725. Steiner- 25 Blue

  727. Capellans definitely scored a win here with one of the few viable glasses girls.
  728.  
  729. 426-475 Another random run created from extras left over while generating Faction Color Pack, grabbed whatever I thought looked cool
  730.  
  731. Next 25 I'm going to take my time on generating the last 25 and call it a day for waifuporttraits at 500. Probably try and tackle the scenario generator afterwards.

Advised to not have opfor bot using anything with jumpjets or they'll kill themselves jumping into the walls. Generally untested in combat and may be ass to play. I hacked them together quickly.

  768. http://www.mediafire.com/folder/y62i5qui8x374/Scenario_Pack
  769. Just extract into the scenario folder.
  770.  
  771. Instructions
  772. Be on a contract and go to the briefing room tab. Click Add Scenario then Generate From Template and pick scenario. Right click scenario and select Edit. Click Finalize and it will generate forces based on scenario parameters. Click Edit again, select date of scenario, then click OK. Scenario is good to go at this point. Internal Fighting scenario will use the planet owner as opfor instead contract enemy. Good for if shit has hit the fan between you and your employer on garrison contracts or you and the locals have had a falling out. Have fun.
  773.  
  774. For this to work you have to have the scenario modifiers folder copied over to the data folder. I forget where it was but there's a post on the OF about it. Otherwise clicking Edit does nothing.
  775.  
  776. Deep Raid is a 3 part mission. Fight your way through the lines, raid shit, then get out. I'll try to do some more multipart missions at some point since I like the idea.
  777.  
  778. Add Loot doesn't seem to work in custom scenarios. When I tested the scenarios I was unable to deploy lances in custom scenarios. I had to deploy units individually to get it to work. Deploying lances borked something in the lobby and I couldn't deploy properly.

  781. Scenario Pack 1.1
  782. http://www.mediafire.com/folder/4fza7iie2x0qk/Custom_Scenarios_1.1
  783. Added a couple new scenarios.
  784.  
  785. Assassination -C- = Assassination against civilian targets
  786. Clans = Less overwhelming Clan opposition
  787. Medevac = Recover MIA/KIA pilots
  788. Prison Break = Free prisoners
  789. Trial of Position = Fight for a place in the Warrior caste
  790.  
  791. Proper load order for scenarios is in the notes. Changed enemy generation so it actually works properly with BV scaling. Created subfolder where I added enemy aerosupport for some scenarios. Maybe add some arty for Princess later. Switched most scenarios to use any map.
  792.  
  793. Going to do some CYOA multipart ones next where what you do on missions defines what ones you do next next. Do you destroy the airfield, bomb the artillery base, assassinate a military official, or incapacitate the enemies dropship?
