The Kickstarter campaign has reached 100% funding and I have announced the first stretch goal, Melee Weapons! This weapon class will include devastating close range weapons that are improvised from their normal mining operations. This goal will be unlocked when we hit 125% funded.

Next up, M.A.V. has been greenlit! What does this mean? It means that M.A.V. has been selected to be a part of the steam distribution platform. When M.A.V. does launch on steam, anyone that has access to the game will be issued a steam key. Since this has just happened, there is still a lot to figure out about how far to integrate into the Steam platform.

I have a very exciting announcement! I have officially signed on Varien to help create the sound track to M.A.V.! Varien has an excellent range of abilities and an amazing talent. I can't wait to see what he comes up with!

In other news, I have still been hard at work making the game. I put out 2 new snapshot builds this week, 0.5.15_2 being a quick hotfix to a camera issue on the reverse joint legs, and version 0.5.15_3 fixing some garage bugs that could be an issue for players when building their M.A.V.'s.

Since both of these snapshots have gone well, I have also put out a new stable build so all the current players will have the updates available now! This coming week I will be focusing all my efforts on fixing up any outstanding multiplayer issues and looking into the steam integration.

I am sticking more towards 'big, lumbering war machine' versus 'jet engine with legs'.

MAV is much closer to Chromehounds then it will be to armored core

This is really cool. This can probably fill the long-awaited Mechwarrior 5's void. Mechs rock!

Sorry, I forgot the readme in the latest upload :(

You need to set weapon groups in the editor. You can access this by pressing 'e'. Here you setup how your weapons fire together.

In game, left mouse fires, 'c' switchs between weapon cam and 3rd person, 'e' and 'q' cycle the selected weapon group. WASD is for movement.

I hope that helps. I will have a newer build in a few days also, I will try to make better instructions. (I try to put out an update every week)

Wow. I loved Mechwarrior 2 as a kid, and this is a mech game where you can build you own mech piece by piece? Tracking!

Not only build your Mech piece by piece, but also (in the future) build each PART piece by piece. So you can take a sniper barrel, put it on a heavy mount, pick the ammo drum, choose the scope, and all those parts combine into a weapon that has your custom stats now. What is in the game now, shows a bunch of the combinations, but you cannot build each weapon up yet.
