    Ok, I think I'm going to just Master my DDC. Maybe in a long time from now I'll invest in Highlanders, but the DDC is a standby so I should just invest in Elite for it.

    I'll be buying the D and RS variants now.

    Edit: Just ran into a HBk-4G without an AC20. he had only two large lasers. Looks like someone got fed up with losing their boombox too many times. Or forgot ammo?

    The weapon shows up even if you forgot ammo; I don't think it gets "redded out" either, like when the UAC/5 jams. You're probably right they were just tired of losing the the side torso - or maybe they forgot to switch the gun back after borrowing it? Never done that, no sir...

    Hunchback Rule 1: PROTECT THE HUNCH
    Hunchbacks only go to mecha-heaven if they die with their lunchbox intact.

    Hell is so full of Hunchbacks.

    So do you typically drop the engine to an XL or drop engine size to run that?

    I guess my interest is academic since I'm unwilling to do either (it'd mean losing heat sinks), but it's good to know what other people are running with.

    Note, in roughly ~320k xp worth of games with that build I have died to loss of legs maybe once. That giant torso on the Awesome is too enticing, enemies can't take their eyes off it.
    Keeping the weaponless arm fully armored isn't worth it, because the torso peeks out so far it makes the arm basically useless as a Centurion style shield arm.

    That's fine, but it does solve the issue you are having, at least with nvidia based graphics cards.

    Updating your drivers breaks all games for you? And you think it's PGI's problem?

    Ok that is certainly one way to look at it.

    Maybe you can just get off outdated shit. idk, thats the point of updates to drivers, right, to fix broken shit? And the game is labeled "beta" for a reason.

    Also, delete your shaders folders cause its cool.

    I have a weird laptop video card in this computer, and every update Nvidia releases past the one its on just lags games to hell. (edit: I have been trying to figure this out since I bought the damn thing a year ago, and everything else I can find on the internet suggests that other people with this card also have this problem. It's something Nvidia cocks up).

    Meanwhile, every other game I have runs fine, and MWO has rune fine up until this buggy, broken patch that's full of triangles, CTDs, hangs, and all sort of fun problems.

    So, yeah, it is PGI's issue, because they're the ones who broke their game.

    I like big beams and I cannot lie;
    You Oosiks can't deny-
    When a Cent walks up with its itty-bitty waist
    And a bright green laser in yo' face
    You get scurred
    Wanna run back; rejoin the herd--
    Too many pulses on that nerd.
    Look at those lasers beamin';
    Those heatsinks--man they're steamin'!
    Oh baby; I wanna get cover;
    I'm dead; better try another
    'mech; there's no denying
    These beams send Jenners flying!
    I'm done with big-ass ACs;
    Tired of comin' up empty.
    Baby, my lasers never run dry;
    (Just don't get any in your eye).

    If you really dont want to update drivers, you can delete the shaders folder in the User folder in the MWO directory, that fixes alot of graphical issues because sometimes they get corrupted and the game forgets to clear them out. If that dosnt work, you can try a fresh re-install. Other then that, you can't really do anything else. What driver version are you running anyway?

    Oh, oh! I remembered why PGI's "update the drivers!" thing bothers me. It's because Nvidia hasn't released new drivers since before this patch! Sooooo why would these issues suddenly appear if the last patch and this patch were released during the same driver cycle O_o

    @BillGates I'll try that, thanks. This laptop has a 555M on 296.10, because every update since that one has more than halved my framerate universally and I'm already playing MWO on Low just to get playable framerate.

    Yes, I realize he currently has a frowny face. I'm just working on getting a good shape and size for the eyes/nose first. After that will be the mouth redo. Finally will be a recolour that takes into account the new features along with the one colour version for everyone to make stickers/shirts/etc. with.

    Feedback, as always, is appreciated.

    I kind of went the other way. Instead of a walrus head with Atlas face, I made an Atlas head with walrus tusks.

    I actually agree which is why I'm shaving the head down a bit right now so that it's a bit more Atlas-y. The picture I posted was very much just a WIP that was just looking for feedback on the eyes and nose and to just let everyone know I was working on it.

    LRMs Protons are fine, Luke was clearly just a hacking piece of shit who needs to be banned from the server. The video evidence clearly shows that he was using some sort of script that no one else had access to.

    A quick WIP update:
    MARK2WIP2_zpsd7f66a73.jpg
    The colouring is absurdly fucked up because I haven't done any work on it yet so try and just tune that out. I'll be completely repainting the face so that it takes into account the facial features.

    And here's a one colour vinyl sticker version:
    MARK2WIP2OneColour_zps6343ba21.jpg
    It's definitely a massive improvement over the Mark 1 Cat Asshole version.

    Looking at it as a one colour vinyl sticker makes me realize the nose is too wide. The crossbone section needs to be moved upwards to accommodate the shrunken mouth size which will also involve chopping a chunk out of the tusks.

    Go to river city, at the altar to st. Bender, our patron saint. You must make a ritual sacrifice of a laser boat or missile boat, preferably a splatcat or a laser back that you have personally killed. Then you have to bring dakka to every match you pay with the oosiks. what you do on you own time is none of our concern.

    Ignore the colour. That's all from the original design which is causing the retarded frowny face. If you overlay the WIP over the original you'll see what I mean. I will be completely repainting things so that it doesn't have that. The teeth are also just the first pass rough draft that I based off the in game Atlas face. I generally go through a ton of iterations and the first one always looks like total balls. I put a one colour version in that post for comparison.
    1344013124_mechwarrior-online-atlas.jpg
    EDIT: I think the mouth's problem is that it's just a bit too wide and the spaces should be narrower. The eye spacing also need to be widened up a smidge.

    EDIT EDIT: Tee hee, I just realized that the coloured version looks like a sad balding guy trying to grow an afro. :3
