Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries is a battlemech piloting simulation and part of the Mechwarrior and Battletech universe unleashed by FASA Studios. In April 2010, MekTek received permission from Microsoft to release the game for free using their MekMatch torrenting program. Now that MekTek has refocused its energies on Mechwarrior Online, it is up to the community to keep the classic mech piloting tradition alive. This group will also serve as a platform for downloading new content created by the community, including new maps and mech decals, some of which have been hosted by other enthusiast sites.
This pack contains over 100 custom decals made by members of the Mechwarrior community. Note: Sometimes the decals do not appear in the Options menu if there are many custom decals in the target folder. WinRar is required to open the file.
Tired of staring at the Gray Death Legion or Northwind Highlanders logo on the side of your Timber Wolf? Try out some of these decals made by members of the Mechwarrior community!
Simply drag and drop them into your "customdecals" folder and show off your artwork to the Inner Sphere!
Note: In the event some of the decals do not appear in the Options menu, one solution is to add the decals in small batches each time, then check to see if they have been recognized in the Options menu. Otherwise, add only what decals you would like to use, and remove the remaining decals.
A tutorial for making custom decals has been posted on the Mechwarrior 4 Wiki
Both Photoshop and/or Gimp are required to make a truly proper decal.
Note: Using Gimp will allow you to make minor adjustments and improvements to your decals without having to begin the entire process over again from the start.
