On Saturday, September 27, two new development releases were announced for MegaMek and MegaMekLab.
A full list of the changes for MegaMek 0.39.2 can be found here:
The list of additions includes strengthening the AI “bot” that you can play against, as well as adding rules such as strafing and a variety of bug fixes. All told, there are more than 50 changes to the game. MegaMek is a free java-based program that simulates playing BattleTech against the AI or real folks, and can be used to host games online.
Meanwhile, MegaMekLab was updated to work with the new MegaMek development release. You can build units with save-files that are compatible with MegaMek and try them out against friend and foe alike.
So download either or both, and get your Mek on!
