On Sunday, December 14, all three in house products were released for MegaMek, MekHQ and MegaMekLab. These three development releases are timed together in order that users of the different programs can use them simultaneously.
If you are feeling a little bored today, and want to play some BattleTech, then just check out the free java-based MegaMek and it’s suite of programs. The additions to MegaMek 0.39.4 handle some bugs, as well as improve images and other miscellanea. All told, there are around 20 changes to the software. 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, the full list of changes for MekHQ reveals a number of bugs squashed. It can be used to track campaigns and manage your unit, and works with MegaMek as well. Meanwhile, the MegaMekLab predominately enables it to communicate with the others. Feel free to build your best stuff and play it against folks in MegaMek.
Download all three and get that Mek on!
I love all three programs. I even wound up putting them on my Windows tablet, they’re so helpful when testing out strategies/tactics and different ‘mech designs. Creeping closer to a 1.0 launch too! :D
Mario Lara – That’ll be so awesome when that happens too!
