FIGHTER CONFIGURATION

The Engine hasn´t the same properties to you known from the other
Mechwarrior games.
So i must find a good way to give the player freedom in configuration with a good
balance.
The Weapons has Numbers in the Weapon Loadout.
In the Ship Selection there are Datapictures from the ships you can see what number
of weapon the ship can load out.
A Example:
In the Datapictures you see „P-Bank: 1-3“ so you can in the weapon load out install
all weapons they have Number 1, 2 or 3.
Also the Fighters are PURE-Tech. You can in the IS-Fighters only install IS Weapons
and in the Clan Fighter only install Clan Weapons but there are fighters the where build in the Era of jihid with clan-technology or with help from the Clans. They can
also equipt with Clan and IS Weapons.







TEXTURES:
   Whats your opinion to the textures, Fighter and Cockpits and gives it any errors
   of textures?   

 



FLIGHT BEHAIVOR:
   I have a formular for calculate the speed and the maneuverability.
   The formular include the reactor,  movement points and the mass of fighter.


GRAPHIC:
   Please test the game with any solution and show about ony HUD errors.
   I have only a Widescreen and the HUD runs with out any errors.
   I make a HUD.tbl entry for 4:3 but i can´t test it.
        Also show about the FPS in game
        Please send back any opinions and by problems let my show your Grahpiccard,
        RAM and CPU (PM to me)

                            LRM: Lock On time is to high

 

INSTALLATIONS:
   The Aerotech Alpha is a 7z file
   
         Please install the game in a seperation file.

Re: Download Link to "Aerotech ALPHA v0.1"
Okay, there are only two things I would like to recommend here.

One, right now, you always get error messages regarding the campaign file (or lack thereof) whenever you start the game. Now, I know you don't have a campaign in there yet, but I would still recommend putting in a dummy one just to make the engine shut up.

Two, that large planet graphic you're using in the missions shipped with this? It's ... not good. It's lacking in depth, compared to the other planetary graphics you've used, it just doesn't look all that good. I would also recommend getting the  mediavps starfield skybox (or the htsb starfield from BP), and using that instead of the stars generated by the engine.

Re: Download Link to "Aerotech ALPHA v0.1"
Does the standalone run cleanly with a Debug build? Fixing up all the Debug warnings is something that new releases often overlook.

It's strongly recommended you resolve all warnings as they are there for a reason. They can lead to odd or hard to track down errors later on and wasted development time :)

You might want to remove or replace the GTVA logos on the screens. :nervous:

Yes it runs clean with debug. I test new Content always first with the debug file :)

Re: Download Link to "Aerotech ALPHA v0.1"
I don't have FS2 right here but I would like to know what Aerotech is about in terms of storyline and background. I assume it doesn't take place in the FreeSpace continuity, it seems a completely different universe.

And by the way, there should be a Wiki article about this mod. :)

Re: Download Link to "Aerotech ALPHA v0.1"
Battletech has always been close to my heart, so seeing this made me really happy. In Kerensky's name and for Clan Wolf, I shall happily test.

Two things I have noticed so far from testing:

1. Every craft you can fly, even the lightest of ones, feel a bit heavy on the sluggish side. This is mostly reflected in AI-piloted craft, in that they can almost fly perfect rings around you and fire shots your way while you're still struggling to make a turn. Gliding does help to a degree, but I'm finding I have to rely on it in order to defend myself. I'm not saying its a bad thing; I do like the idea of sluggish maneuvering for a change. But I think they could be improved a slight tad so players have a decent chance and not, in my instance, depend on gliding.

2. This is a cosmetic thing, not exactly important or a game-breaking. But visually, the lasers seem a bit out of place to the norm of the Battletech titles. Medium as Red for example or Large as Green? I don't recall them being that way. All Mechwarrior Titles I've played (Mechwarrior 2 + Mercenaries, 4 + Mercernaries and MWO) follow this visual pattern:

Small = Red
Medium = Green
Large = Blue

Am I missing something with this? Just thought I'd point it out.

Other than those two pointers, very excellent so far. Would love to see more from Aerotech. ^.^

Well, MW4 actually did red=IS, green=Clan, blue=X-pulse, yellow-Heavy. I agree, though, that it might be better to have MW2-style colors (though MW4 style wasn't too bad, either).

Ah yeah, you are right. Memory bit fuzzy on that one. Cheers on pointing that one out.

Re: Download Link to "Aerotech ALPHA v0.1"
Also, IIRC, MW3 fooled around with colors a bit, too. I didn't play it yet, but from what I've heard, the current scheme might be from there. I got stuck on that #@!$ underwater mission in GBL, and I'm playing them sequentially (starting with MW1! :) ), so I've got to finish that and Mercs first.
