Perhaps MegaISAW at some point in the distant future?  :)

On my list as well. :)

Agree. Gets my vote.

Been waiting a very long time for that game expansion. megastrike will be awesome. 8)
To be able to control formation such as battalions and above will really make a big difference.

The only thing I look forward to more is the abstract portion of alpha strike. Because that handles the even larger formations. Without mentally breaking someone because it's on a couple of days cards versus a lot of data cards.

And MegaStrike would of course lay the foundations for MegaForce.  ;D

I'm pretty sure we're just naming yet-to-be-released Nerf blaster series at this point.

Given how it'll be quite some time (think closer to a decade at current pace) until an alpha is released, you are correct.

Proposed option for the in-game unit display.

We have a contributor working on the final stages of this.



It would allow you to switch between the traditional tabbed view, and an expanded view that feels more like a control panel. It works well with a wide screen monitor.

Thoughts?

The graphical elements in the lower right could stand to be stretched a little taller...  :)

I think the whole display could be compacted a little bit by getting rid of the armor block and weapons summary on the unit summary panel, shrinking that window as needed, putting the armor diagram between that panel and the pilot info panel, moving the sensors and misc. stuff window to under the weapons display, and moving either the weapons list or the location and slot window to take up the entire right side.

That overlay reminds me of Betty describing local battlefield conditions in MechWarrior 2 8)

I'd prefer a weathervane-style graphic, but for now I'll take the text.
