The heaviest 'gear' is about 10 tonne... the lightest mech is 20 tonne. It is not particularly surprising.

Speaking of which though, Heavy Gear used a fair bit of code from Mech 2. If you go through all the config and data files, you can find a few references to 'mechs' and some mechwarrior specific stuff.

Also speaking of which, last night I found my Mechcommander, Mechcommander 2, Mech 2:Mercs, Mech 3, Mech 4, Mech 4:Mercs, Heavy Gear and Heavy Gear 2 disks. Brought back memories.

I thought MechCommander was a great concept, just poorly executed. It could have been better than C&C/Red Alert

Graphics was never really the failing point, it was more the gameplay appealed to about fifteen people, but thirteen of them would not play because the positoning of the cockpit struts on the Raven was non-canonical.

Myself, I liked the whole idea and felt that a more detailed isometric game would be brilliant. All reports indicate that no such beast is going to appear at any point soon though.

At least part of it would be that mech fans seem to be the most obnoxious bunch of uptight fanbois invented. It is not as popular as some other canons, but fuck me dead if those who do follow the canon are not insane. That they are also stuck in the whole 'Mech 3 was the greatest game ever made' mode does not help. I am actually rather surprised that they are making a mech 5... and will be even more surprised if it turns on PC... and you could knock me over with a feather if it feels like a mech sim and not a console game if it does.

A lot of the non-canon angst stems from that fact that a huge amount of MechWarrior fans are also basement dwelling mouth breathers that are even bigger fans of BattleTech. I've played BattleTech miniatures and MechWarrio tabletop RPG. Both are tons of fun and there is a MASSIVE amount of books that go along with the game. This tends to lead to a lot of butthurt feelings when video games, or otherwise go off-canon.

Fucking Atlas, that was always my guy. I remember I just took that guy, made him into a max DPS lance and went insane with high powered lasers. I was pretty shit at that game, but I still have fond memories of Atlas .

Is there a site anywhere that has a list with all the chassis and their names (w/ pics)?

with all the tech readouts codecs and handbooks for battletech, plus all the novels, its a rather ridiculous number.. and then if you include mechwarrior and dark age stuff the number swells a little more.

i found a zip of about 50 some of the battletech handbooks in pdf. havent even looked at half and only glanced at the others..
