I noticed that this mod contains assets and featurs modelled after Mechcommander 1. Does that mean you plan on remaking the MC Gold campaigns?

Sweet. You guys are both awesome.
Too bad I already got a decent way through Desperate Measures :/

Well, I hope the old music also makes it in. And I also like Rooster's lines from MC Gold more than the ones from MC2.

Oh, I almost forgot.
You should add a setting in the "Gameplay" tab of the options menu that changes LOS and rendering and the tacmap and stuff to the systme used in the first Mechcommander.

I tried to do this myself by editing gamesys.fit, but it didn't seem to do anything when I tested it.

I have one major issue with MC2.... the enemy units aren't challenging enough. Is there a way to ask you nicely enough, to make me a new set of campaign mission files, that... er, say.... replace all vehicles and infantry with light mechs, and scale up all the mech classes to stuff that makes my day suck a lot more?
I tried doing it myself, but it's not a challenge when I know what to expect. Replaced every mech in the first mission with assaults, and switched some of the smaller enemies to lights and mediums, ended up being forced to edit Mission #1's starting lineup with a Madcat, a Loki, and a Thor, and it was still too easy for my liking, because I was prepared for the Atlases and Bushwackers.

A great universe expansion for a game that I have always enjoyed. Kudos to the team, and to Microsoft for releasing the source code so any true battletech fan short on cash can enjoy this project. Definitely looking forward to the MCG campaigns to be released.
