Thanks man. If you want the original sources, go pick up TechManual, it's riddled with these sorts of technical bits and such; and the older source, Classic BattleTech Companion.

And please, stop by the http://bg.battletech.com/forums/ and drop "cray" a thank you. He wrote the stuff. I just retyped it so everyone else could get the goodness!

Apparently most clan mechs don't have one.

That said, hey, why wouldn't you want one? ... you do realize that you can refuel your fusion engine with pee, right? Posted Image No, seriously, you can. It will separate out the hydrogen to use in the engine.
but you will need to poop some time can the engine use that i think not

Oh man, I am dangerously interested in this. Terrible. I barely know how cars work and now I can explain in disturbing detail how a fictional war machine operates? It's bad enough I have a better idea of Inner Sphere politics then anything happening in America. Losing my grasp on reality over here.
so im not the only geek who keeps his in lore politics straight

Somebody should have done a system for this in the Periphery books. Not as built-that-way 'mechs or anything, but as "alternate repair rules." If a 'mech loses it's gyros/legs and can't walk anymore, include rules for a field refit using tracked or wheeled vehicles.

Mostly because the hilarious image of a 'mech torso riding around strapped to the back of a semi-truck just seems so, so bandit kingdom.
bandit kingdom???????/

Good job compiling all that, now we just need someone to do the same for the backstory fluff. I've got a few friends that are finally coming around to Battletech and are having trouble keeping atop the story.
as the new guy learning his lore even just a quick back view of all the factions even just the major ones

So Mechs are actually closer to becoming reality...

well form what i under stand the only reason the us is not makeing mechs to fight is battery tech i guess they review the idea of makeing mechs to fight every year or two and every time they do they say impractical do to the limits of battery technology

What about zoids? They have AI and can move with out a pilot but still has a cockpit and can be controlled with a polit. The AI helps with combat like the zoid is a "living" mech.

yes i love zoids nice to see some one else who likes um but like the man said not here thats what offtopic it for

Well a toilet in the cockpit of IS makes sense considering the manic brutality of the Succession Wars. Although I suspect they would use a thermal oven system to "cook" the waste desiccating it and removing the issue of getting "pooed" if your mech fails a piloting check in the heat of battle.

Although the idea of fairly full service foodstorage, from refrideration, cooking, cleaning, storage ect gives me a wild vision of Mechwarriors "pimping" their rides with NFL Tailgaters style BBQ's, with beer kegs on tap....
you to huh makes me wounder if any mechs have a getto blaster

I personally wouldn't be surprised to see a battlemech built with a potty integrated into the command chair ... now that would give a whole new dimension of meaning to the phrase "ruling from my throne!" LOL!

yes it would but i would not want to pilot that i mean eww
