Dancing meks? Nice!  ;D That will make AAR replays a lot easier then snapshotting manually every turn and putting together into a GIF by hand!
"That's Lieutenant Faceplant to you, Corporal!"

Things that I have learnt through clicking too fast on 'Move Done' on MegaMek: Double-check the CF of the building before jumping onto it, check artillery arrival times before standing in the neighbouring hex, and don't run across your own minefield.

"Hmm, I wonder if I can turn this into a MM map."

More like we take pics of each phase, save them to a folder. So people can review screen shots, or as shown create a gif.

I'm curious as to how it will interact with Double Blind, and with different levels of map zoom - looking forward to experimenting!

I would definitely want that to be third-party obsever/GM view.  With the overlays coming along for the ride, it should be easy to tell where the units are spotted or net (U, H, etc.).

I wonder if this will include illuminated areas via spotlight/visual range in limited lighting conditions?

Oh wow, that would make AARs or let's plays so much more interesting, imagine instead of a 3hr long video showing a week of time passing in the game and 3 battles, instead you have a review of a year with 30 battles done in an hour!

Awesome work!

Should strictly be screen shots of what the player sees.

Cool. That's what I thought. And would avoid it potentially being used as a way to circumvent Double Blind. (Not that anyone would do such a thing, but ...)

Would be nice to have an option for after the game to replay with all units visible for tactical review.

Submit a feature request at https://github.com/megamek/megamek and maybe it'll make it into a future release.

Is that 3D look something new, also? I remember the isometric view, and it didn't look like that. Keep in mind, I am just back to playing, and we're using 46.1 (host's call).

Not sure what exactly you're referring to, but if you just mean the shadows, that's selectable in the graphics tab of the client settings.

Sorry I wasn't very clear; yes, the shadows are what I am referring to. Thank you.

Yeah, the hex-edge highlight/shading was added in one of the 0.47.n updates. Makes level changes nice and clear, without needing to switch on the 'heavy borders' or 'isometric' options, except for special circumstancs. It's a really nice visual improvement.

MekHQ's Campaign Options will be getting cleaned up and organized in 0.49.X, with Personnel (the largest tab and the one most in need of organization improvements) being first on the docket.

Nice.  A better way of filling out the XP/skill level table would be nice - being able to copy-paste rows/columns/blocks of values to fill identical progressions for similar roles would be an improvement.

Certainly looks easier to deal with than ATOW and other systems. i still think MW2 despite flaws is fairly descent as long GM rides te players from braking it.

That's what I'm working on... and to give it MegaMek compatibility.
