Um.  Whups.  It isn't in the first post, either.  Its going to take me a day or two to put it up, RL is going crazy.  I may have to contact the author, too, since I can't remember if I was allowed to post it.  I'll try to send a PM, no promises, PM me if I forget, eh?

Lovely!  Oh, he must have finished it, and that explains it - I seem to remember him explaining it was a beta.

*edit - Yup, different cover art and 8 additional pages, I think it was the lawsuit he was waiting for, but since there's no timeline for it to finish, he must have released it anyway.  Thanks, Starfox.  Its uploading now.

Sure, PM an email address and I'll send the invite.  There hasn't been much of a change since you were last there, though.

Another new fan project, this time by our own nckestral, here; https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=63772.msg1467039#msg1467039

Combat Manual Liao Lite.  It looks interesting, but I'm sick right now, so I'll add it to the list in the first post later.

*Another new project is on the horizon, as well!

Ah, no.  But, >SQUEE!<

Combat Manual Steiner Lite.  Geez, what's that quote?  "It was something like buses; nothing for a long time, then two at once."  I'm hoping to read them on my 5-day weekend.

Ahh, so, the Society XTRO drops.  You guys are going to LOVE this.  Professional quality; excellent layout, all-new art by Plog (and a cover by Anthony Scroggins!).  Covers everything from BA, Protos, conventional vehicles, Mechs, and AeroSpace.  Excellent work.

another one to add to the list RedPins

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hkiTX0nGJKHI64N31-dGscSrGxTTHw1N/view

Hehehe.   You're underestimating me!  I've already read it!  I found it on the OBT forum, two days after it dropped.

Seriously, I've gotten five or so in the last month alone, and found another BIG one being worked on by the guy over at Aries games.  I seriously need to update this thread, maybe get the topic pinned or something.

I know one is the Society XTRO, one is the Clans Delrane's Book, and I know there's a fan-TRO in progress over at Aries, so what are the others?

It's flat out amazing everything going on right now.  Since December 24, 2018, there have been actually six combat manual (Lite) Beta and two CM Record Sheets.  Plus the new Delraine book, Society XTRO, and the Aries work in process.

-As well, several small rules pdfs revising Aerotech (New construction rules, weapons, etc.)

-Plus the two Quicksilver books from OBT I'm contributing to (Quicksilver Trials and QT Supplemental(?)).

-/btg/ on 4Chan looks to be resurrecting their project.

-No sign of Master Arminas' HB: Goliath Scorpion, yet.  Supposedly he's getting closer to releasing it.

-Oh, I'm also compiling the "This was easier on tabletop" story.  Spellchecking and punctuation, mostly.  Bit of grammar, though.

-I'm working on a new one too, but mine isn't even out of rough draft yet.

*Gotta remember to download the new art coming from Matt Plog, too.  He's redoing the original ProtoMechs, one of the guys here on the forum commissioned him to re-imagine the ones he hadn't done yet.  Centaur looks great, two more upcoming.

*edit  And a secret.   :fine_print:
*edit 2 Six books, not seven.

Does anybody else have something to add to that?

As another newly-discovered project (thank you, Marauder648) it seems Battletech International has a guy putting something together with art from Matt Plog - the cover art and some units are on his Deviantart page.  Since I'm off FB, Marauder648 may be able to put me in contact with him.

Thanks for the invite pal, I did manage to find an excel file for character creation for A Time of War. Work from some /tg/ quires.

They've been sitting on my desktop for a while.  RL has been busy between renos, physio, blah, blah, blah.  And at least two of those future TROs will have a couple, my own has two as well - a YardShip and Primitive JumpShip based off the Aquila.

I just have to find time to do it.  Anybody who says cleaning and flooding a rink is easy is insane, or a 20-year old.  It takes me 4-5 hours at a time but maybe it will be easier with the new fire hoses they gave me.

I seem to be having Dropbox problems, I can't tell if this is more waterlogged phone lines of what.  I'll give it a day or two, but this might be a more serious problem than it appears.

I am thinking of retiring the game when IlClan reaches dtf, maybe it's a sign.
