Coming soon to MegaMek - Strategic BattleForce Conversion
« on: 22 February 2023, 16:56:43 »
We've recently added the ability to handle Alpha Strike Conversion to MegaMek. It seemed like a logical extension to add conversion to SBF Formations. The screen shot below is a teaser of the force building and conversion. Coming in 0.49.12 Development



Important note this is a conversion tool. MegaMek has no plans to support either Alpha Strike (MegaStrike) or SBF play.

Printable sheets or just the conversion? Either way, very much appreciated.

We are looking into printable sheets for both AS Cards and SBF sheets but no ETA.

Actually, along this line, any chance of standard BattleForce print-outs as well?

No Plans and between this and Alpha Strike support this is likely as far as we'll take things.
