    It's not that they ARE dogs, they just EAT dog. Get it right.
    I am so, so sorry.

    Nobody is forgotten and i'm still slowly plugging away, but I have been working for the past 36 hours except for a modest sleep break. Things will be calmer on wednesday and I should tie everything off by then. Worst case, turkey day, but worst case won't happen.

    Yep. I have worked 60 hours from Sunday through yesterday. I have forces in .MUL, which lets you load and play them with megamek, but I can't find a way to a user-friendly text file and it looks like I can't attach them as a file here. Can everyone PM me their e-mail addresses and I'll share? I'll then ask you to manually transcribe the units and their skills and send them to me in e-mail/PM, where I will add them to the main post. Battle Value isn't perfectly balanced and I gave combined arms forces a bit more BV, but I think it's good enough for what we're doing.

    Preliminary match-up info:
    Kana against Da Moon Rulz
    Wiet against PhantZon (Phant, I gave you a mixed force, because I couldn't balance an all-tank force well and it would have overwhelmed you with units)
    Waffle Maus against Riemann
    Elldren against TiamatZ

  • WietWiet Registered User regular
    In megamek there should be an option tab saying ''Load Unit List'' under the Add Combat Unit thing. You can load .mul files with that.

    Speaking of megamek, which version are we using?

    For the first match, as a warm up, pick out 4000 BV of units in any configuration you like. The APC for battle armor and infantry don't count. If you have those units, you may want to start a few practice games against the bot to get used to them and how to embark/disembark. I think we will eventually use the double blind rules but want people to get used to how line of sight works first.

    Lets use the most recent stable version. For maps, just use two standard maps back to back. Because I want some practice for newbies we will hand wave and say anything destroyed is repaired/replaced.

    For the second round I will give instructions on how to save unit info. Winner of this round determines who attacks and who defends next time.

    Be sure to turn on simultaneous targeting and firing and all, as it'll speed your games up immensely. You can find those options under View > Game Options > Initiative Rules

  • WietWiet Registered User regular
    Also if anyone would like feedback on force composition, I'd be glad to help! With 4 v 4 there's usually not a lot of options, but it's the thought that counts.

    Yeah, looks like it's been a while since they updated that. To be honest the development version is just as stable as the stable version.

    what should we use for piloting / gunnery skills? We have a general xp level assigned for the unit (green / veteran etc...) but in the Total War book you then have to roll on a table for each unit to determine its actual skills.

  • WietWiet Registered User regular
    Piloting skills were including in the .mul, weren't they? They were in mine, although I'm not sure if mine was the correct one.

    I rolled and balanced BV with skills - they're in the .mul.

    Yeah, we can use the latest dev version.

    Der Waffle Maus and I are setting up for our game. It's in a Light Urban setting using mapsheet City / Hills on the west and City / Residential on the west. I'm starting on the east edge and Waffle Maus on the west.

    edit:
    I'm fielding my less experienced pilots (hard to fit heavy mechs in 4000 bv) in the following:
    Enforcer ENF-4R: A jump capable 50 tonner packing an AC10 and Large Laser
    Warhammer WHM-7S: A modern refit of the classic with double heat sinks, ER PPCs and streak SRM2s
    Archer ARC-5s: Another refit of an oldy. It is an LRM artillery mech with some nice close range backups in the form of medium pulse lasers and streak SRM2s.

    The Tau Ceti Rangers have withdrawn from the field in good order. I think most of the damage in this game was done by falling down.

  • Der Waffle MousDer Waffle Mous Blame this on the misfortune of your birth. New Yark, New Yark.Registered User regular
    On your side, yeah.

    I think handfull of LRM-5 flights and one PPC shot connected on my end.

    Didn't even break through the armor. Meanwhile on my end I've got two mechs missing their RTs and a Hammer with a leg held on by duct tape.

    That said, did you save those forces to a mul? I thought it would've given me the option when I quit, but it didn't.

    There should be an entitystatus.txt that contains damage info, but as noted above, damage is getting fixed for this game. The headache is in keeping track of a million entitystatuses that each feature a part of your forces. I am going to figure that out in the week we have to play our games out.
