The mod is pretty much Classic Battletech but put into more of TA's scale of battle. it supposed to feel and emulate most of the classic battle tech universe yet still be a fun rts like TA, with the obvious restrictions of the TA engine. Right now it is in beta testing phase, and there are 2 factions. inner sphere and clan, 2 tiers light and medium. The last tier is being worked on now which which will have the heavies and assault class mechs, vehicles, and air support. It will probably be included in the next release. After its release I will probably fill in a few holes with some more units to help game play and balance.

The spring engine project to port the last version to spring's format is currently on hold, and I have been informed that there is another team working on a BT mod for spring so don't worry.

Today I finally got around to releasing a No-CD exe version for the mod that you can get in the download section. It will not work unless you have a legitimate copy of Total Annihilation installed and patched with the 3.1 official Cavedog patch. So I hope that helps the gamers that were hoping for the no cd version.

Also if I have time and there is later in spring of 2010 then I might do one last release with a finalized bug fix/ balance, and unit addition.

Currently we are accepting open requests for Battletech units fans would like to see in this last release, but there is no guarantee that it can be done. I would like to see about a dozen more new units in the last release, so let see your ideas.

Thanks,

Total Battletech mod team

So... is there any way to play this on Spring at the moment? Every good Battletech mod has all this wonderful progress... and looks awesome... but they don't provide any test builds or demoes- and then go an abandon the mod.

I've noticed that some mechs never replenish ammo for their weapons; i.e. the blood asp never replenishes gauss rifle ammo after a few shots. Is there a way to fix this?

In addition, it seems that pulse lasers do no damage at all. Overall this is a very good mod however.

Thanks. Maybe I'll eventually look into it and release a fix.

The most realistic & thoughtfully done Mechs & Mechas ever R found is the mod for C&C Generals and its called "The Capellan Solution". The textures R uber! The movements R outstanding! No glitchs! You get so many mechs that it over-flows Santas sack!!! Some rarely ever seen like the monstrous Penatrator!!! Rockets & missile barrages & flames & lazers & photons, bombs & uber bullets galore! I kid you not - this is the MUST HAVE mod bar none! I still play it to this day cause it appears 25 years ahead of its time! Outstanding creation & mod!

The spring version is for an old version of spring. It is probably not compatible with the new ones which may use a different archived texture system and is causing the error.

Kind of. It is more or less just the old TA mod ported to spring.
