Post news Report RSS MechWarrior: Living Legends - Weekly Update XVI/XVII

This update, combining updates 16 & 17, introduces new particle effects for Mech core explosions - if you thought our former ones were huge, wait till you see the new ones - Mech jumpjets and aerospace engine bursts. Also, we'll be having a first glimpse at the new cockpits that are currently being worked on and get to see the four variants of the Inner Sphere's Harasser missile plattform. As always, we're concluding this update with a few playtest impressions

Four Variants: IS_Harasser

What used to be an extremely mobile and swift missile plattform, has now become a real weapons plattform: the Inner Sphere's Harasser. See below the four variants you'll find in the first public playable version of MWLL. The vehicle itself is undergoing extensive remodeling at this time, which is why the version in this screenshot does only have placeholder textures on.

i find the explosions waay to "ringy"
you can clearly see that it are in fact rings
it should be better if its an entire smoke "dome"
