    Mechwarrior: Living Legends

    This mod is the sequel to Mechwarrior that we haven't had in almost 8 years. I'd go into detail, but I provided a link below that can fill in more information than I can possibly tell you.

    I am a developer in this mod tho.
    I'm a 3D Modeler. At the end of this post I provided images of the model i just finished.

    I hope you all find interest in this mod because I'd love to play with you all and have you enjoy the assets I've helped create. There's nothing more satisfying for an Artist than appreciative people.

    Read Up, Take Interest.
    This is the next step in the Evolution of Battletech.

    was just going to ask which game its a mod for, MW3 or 4... but looked at the link, noticed it'll be for Crysis,

    Definitely will be waiting to see this one then.

    Loved MW2, liked 3, the next "4th" one, was... well, don't really know how to put it... pussied up? not sure, just seemed you could do less than #3 to me, looked better graphics wise, but that was its best part IMO

    Bookmarked this page, & will post over in my clans forums later, see if there are any former MW2 & 3 players, let them know whats up

    Thanks for the link & the heads up

    M$ was all over MW4, that's why you smell pussy.
    sweet stuff, thanks for the heads up!
    Is Battletech OK with this? I know some companies take a very pro-active stance against 3rd party mods.

    Yeah,
    Thanks for the interest.

    I hated Mech4 as well, and I loved 3 with an undying passion.

    This mod has the go-ahead from the dealers of death themselves, Microsoft, and the makers of Crysis. Basically, I think Microsoft knows we have something good and would like to see the waters tested where they failed, miserably, 3 times.

    I have the feeling that we will succeed where others have failed, even the machine. Simply because we have 30+ people on staff, including myself and the generated interest keeps us going. Combined arms warfare, unexplored territory of the BT franchise.

    yeah, I remember one of the big differences from 3 to 4 was that in the former I used to be one of those that would load down a heavy or medium sized mech with med range lasers or pulse lasers, & heatsinks, & just blow the sh*t out of other mechs, either that or select a above average speed model & do the same, few direct bursts at the legs & disable them. (especially if I was camping out in a low water level river, would even go with out a few HS's to lighten the load a bit).

    When I played 4, I hated that a lot of weapons could only be allocated to specific hard points & I couldn't really do the same thing as in 3.

    that was one of many issues I had with MW4, heck what I did in 3, I used to do similar things in MW2 (didn't get into that one until a couple years after the game & expansions came out), but it was MW for SNES that really got me interested in the whole franchise, even though that game was a crappy conversion or the original Battletech games, for the SNES back in the day, it wasn't too bad.

    after that game, & seeing MW2 in PC gaming mags, my love for that type of game was on a rise, Mechwarrior/Battletech series, Earthsiege/Starsiege/Tribes series or franchise, even the old Activision Heavy Gear 1 & 2 games I loved. (wish something new in that series would come back too )

    the specific hardpoints made sense to me for the single player part of MW4, since its just you and a smallish team. You really don't have access to a full armory and team to respec your mech. For MP though, it probably should have gone open allotment. I can see why they kept it though, its kinda unrealistic to have a LRM 20 sitting on the arm of some smaller mechs.

    We are always looking for people willing to help. Check the forums if you're interested. That's how I came along.

    The way I see it, the more people helping who care about the progression and future of the Mechwarrior Franchise, the better it will be when it's released.

    Hell, most game companies can't hire 30 people to work for free. That's the cool part about PC games. Build a game you love, play it with people who love it.
