About this mod

Makes BattleTech more Roguelike

THIS MOD IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EASY, ENEMIES ARE DEADLIER AND THAT'S INTENTIONAL!

I mean, how fair would it be to just have the player have all these fancy toys?



(i will keep pushing updates whenever i find a bug, independent of anything else i planned)

ROGUETECH ENHANCED IS NOT! FROM OR SUPPORTED BY THE RT TEAM


RogueTech

RogueTech has as goal to provide new challenges and a harsher simgame experience. You have to survive by all means, the enemy's will do their best to kill you and no one gives a rats ass about some merc dying

The timeline for this mod is at the start of 4th Succession and the War of 3039, when the the first technologies of the Helm Core appear around the sphere.

THIS MOD IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EASY, ENEMIES ARE DEADLIER AND THAT'S INTENTIONAL!


I mean, how fair would it be to just have the player have all these fancy toys?

Highlights

  • Big, RogueLike, Sandbox Experience
  • Rebalanced Sim and Combat game, to give you a harsher world.
  • More Mech's: From the pirate commando with infernos, to the Massive KingCrab-0001 with twin Gauss rifles, face off against all kinds of enemy's.
  • With the great houses scrambling for superiority and unlocking the secrets of Helm, new weapons arrive on the battlefield, but nothing is cheap.
  • Tonnage means nothing!, Everything is balanced around what your Lance costs, not what it weights
    • MASSIVE CUSTOM CAMPAIGN DIFFICULTY OPTIONS


IMPORTANT!

If you had other mods installed, and the game doesn't start, delete all saves that uses these as the game may
try to reference files from these and can crash on start-up

This is a HBS issue with internal databases on saves, not a RogueTech bug

The first start takes a while, modtek builds its own database from over 5000! files, that takes a while, up to 20 minutes, starts after that are extremely fast, please be patient

AS LONG AS YOU SEE THE LOADING BAR ALL IS OK

Special Thanks
Unlike others who just steal their stuff

Morphyum and Janxious provide the majority of dll's required to make it all work, they give the glue

Gnivler who made the upgraded Panic System and CitizenSnippy/Life who made Armor Repair

I want to credit RealityMachina and Don Zappo for their dll's which they have given me permission to be used for this mod

Special Credit to our resident Car Mechanic Cargo_Vroom for making all these delicious tanks

And credit where credit is due, everyone on the battletech discord modders channel who gave input and who helps ironing out bugs, you are all great guys :)

Thanks to Callyste for the gorgeous Header
