1.mguns are crap yet their on many mechs that can't even shoot back at aero's long enough. (Kitfix,summer,Hellbringer,Timberwolf)


2. The mad cat looks like an odd marauder without it's catapult style missle pods is it possible to fix this so that it looks like a madcat and not a mad?

The design follows the TRO art to a point where a cel-shaded render of the model is almost indistinguishable from original art; right now I'm wondering what angle you're looking at it from so it looks like a Marauder and not a Timber Wolf. Got reference images/screenshots?

Weapons and the missile pods are shared between assets due to VRAM constraints. It's unlikely there will ever be mech-specific missile pod designs.

Doesn't the MAD have those really tall totem-pole missile launchers? I've never seen the Mad Kitty look like that...

IMHO MWLL's Kitty looks the sexiest out of all the games. Especially those awesome orange cockpit panels.

You never know. The VRAM situation is expected to get better, starting with the next patch.

The VRAM is better spent on new mechs, vehicles and battlearmor. Just sayin'.

The MadCat in MWLL does have "Catapult style missile pods". As already said, the Mechs in MWLL all share the same missile pod geometry, wherever applicable. May be you have never seen a MadCat prime in the game? Or the ATM one. Which i suppose is possible; those variants are not as popular as the others.


However, what always bothered me about the MadCat in MWLL are the proportions of the standard missile pods compared to the rest of the Mech. They are a bit small, when you are used to the original art and models in other MechWarrior games.

MWLL Timberwolf is IMHO hands down the best looking incarnation of this iconic 'Mech. I love it, I choose it whenever I am playing clan, I miss it because I am not playing ATM and if it had a rear entry port (exhaust or anything like that), I'd f*ck it.

Literally f*ck it. With gusto!  :o

Cheers!  :)

I agree, mguns are under-powered. Also some mechs would just be better off if they were removed and replaced with a heatsink or two. Also, do they still have the tendency to crash the game when used? If so, they seem pretty useless to me atm.

MWLL MGuns are only 0.25 tons each, so on the average MGun using mech (2 MGuns) the only thing you could mount instead of them would be a single small laser, or maybe an insignificant amount of extra armor.

Aren't the ammo still 1 ton / 1000 shots? Anyways, didn't know mguns were so light. Might explain the low damage :P
Thanks for the info.

The preloaded ton of ammo is without weight on all weapons.
Only the ammo that has weight is the one you load into your "free tons"

I did an opti pass on them, and there is a new particle so they are optimized as hell now :)
