I'm assuming in Computer Program that you are running it "common" for Pilots to destroy the unit by own error?

MegaMek registers anything that doesn't die from weapons fire as death by "pilot error" -- falling down, getting caught in an engine explosion, and so on.

To be honest, I wish it had a more robust system that indicated exactly how a unit died, rather than a simple "destroyed by" tag, but alas, I've got what I've got.

D20 each " kill " and see if it survives? And if it does, repair to master list. If not, it's dead.

Just received this incredible custom commission of Deacon Amirault's custom-podded Blood Asp from the miniature maestro from Down Under himself, Insane Kangaroo. Rocinante is now sitting in pride of place on one of my bookcases.

Insane is still doing miniatures that's good to know. :thumbsup:

Well, now that the New Oslo arc has concluded, it's time for me to both expand the 49th BattleMech to a full Cluster, and to add a fifth and final Cluster, the content of which I've been toying with in my head for years now. I'm leaning toward the idea of a fully Nova'd Cluster, and I definitely want to include some Notos QuadVees, but beyond that, I'm pretty open to suggestion. But working this out will be the next phase of this, before the New Exford campaign begins.

Would be fun to see you put some of the wacky new Rec Guide configs through their paces, like hatchet Gargoyles.

I agree, and that new Cluster seems like the perfect vehicle for that.

What do you guys think of calling the new Cluster the First Hypernova Cluster?

Depends. What’s a hyper nova?
If it’s a actual formation it seems kind of silly.
If it’s some sort of tactical maneuver or doctrine it doesn’t seem as bad.

The idea is that it's a Cluster where every Star is a Nova (yes, even the ASFs). It is to a standard Cluster as a Supernova is to a standard Trinary. I'm not totally in love with that name, but thus far I can't think of anything I find more satisfying.

If that’s the case I would replace the word cluster with hyper nova. When you have a Horde Cluster it refers to its doctrine more so than its make up. Obviously one effects the other but generally it’s more one than the other.

1st Assault HyperNova or whatever. It’s not really referred to as a supernova trinary it’s just a supernova

That's...not accurate. I just ran a search of my PDF library and it's already found three dozen instances -- FMs Warden and Crusader Clans alone have a dozen between them.

I suppose I should have left that part out.
Either way I’m not a huge fan of that designation, just seems overly generic even for a clan formation

Yeah, I don't really care for it either -- I just also can't think of anything that I actually do like.
