  • Online War

    Online War

    Basics
    - All factions are at war with each other.
    - Planets offer contracts from the owner of the planet, locals and each bordering faction.
    - Doing contracts for a faction raises their percentage of control and lower the percentage of the others.
    - The faction with the most control owns the planet.
    - If you get high rep with factions they offer you priority contracts that pay better and lead you to currently contested planets.
    - The amount of % a contract moves the control is based on skulls. Each half skull earns 2% of control. 

    IT Stuff(How does it work)
    - Whenever the game updates the map it makes a request to the Roguetech server and updates your lokal map based on the current state of the war.
    - After...

  • War Mechanics(WarTech)

    War Mechanics

    Starting or joining a war
    - Factions have a chance each month to start or join a war. 
    - This chanced is based on their current war exhaustion. 
    - The more exhaustion they have the less likely they start or join a war.
    - If they decide to enter war state they pick a random faction that is neighbouring them.
    - If this faction is already in a war they join on the opponent side.
    - If this faction is not at war yet they start a new war.

    Ending a war
    - Factions have a chance each month to leave a war.
    - This chanced is based on their current war exhaustion. 
    - The more exhaustion they have the more likely they leave a war.
    - If all faction on one side left the war, it ends.

    My personal munchkin collection, they are fun challenge to fight

    These are not just mere Warmachines, but works of Art, each one as expensive as a small fiefdom, handcrafted by their designer do they embody the true horrors of Battlemech Warfare, each one is optimized for their role

  • CostBalanceFactor

    The more powerfull a toy you have, the more you pay

    This Modpack is balanced around the cost of different Parts instead around the tonnage of mechs. That means:

    Both mods, the MechMaintenance by Cost and the DropCost by Cost are an important Balance factor for this mod's more extreme gear.
    Same as the Difficulty on the Starmap and the Skulls shown at drop, they all change their effect dependent on the "complete cost of chassis".
    This means, every piece of gear you add, will add to the maintenance, drop cost and skull difficulty of that mech.

    You are quite able and allowed to slap your super expensive super chassis shockfull of lostech, advanced materials and other assorted upgrades, but you will have to pay for, every month, every drop and ...

  • Solution to being stuck at sprinting into combat

    If you experience not being able to end your turn after sprinting into contact range, a possible fix might be to check in your in-game settings that "Auto select units when not in combat" is selected.
