More details to come.
My son and I were excited about the upcoming release of MechWarrior Online so we decided to build a BattleMech Simulator.
Here's the full tour.
I was inspired by the following two creators greatly, but did not have their resources. I thank them for posting their stuff. It shames mine:
Choowy's Mad Dog:
TurboCorvair's PC Sim Pit:
(look for "PC Sim Pit" on youtube) Video not directly linked to avoid confusion with my (meager) build.
I am not trying to emulate those guys. They appear to be master builders. I wanted to see what could be done with the least amount of materials and money (and building skill). I was pleasantly surprised.
I had some spare lumber, an old subwoofer, a couple of spare PC's, a small monitor and it all sorta just fit together. This was not supposed to be a high-quality build. I think of mine as a jalopy of a mech. To all who are critical, please remember, my total build cost now stands at $55.00 USD. All the components were either bound for the junkpile or were donated by friends who were supportive along the way. I challenge anyone to do a better job for less money.
My build photos are available over at No Guts, No Galaxy's forums. http://nogutsnogalaxy.net/ You gotta register there to look at those. Thought I'd send some more business their way. Great guys, what with their hosting Teamspeak servers for MWO and all.
Special thanks to:
Galaxy Commander Aaron
Galaxy Commander Frank
Star Captain Andrew
Additional thanks to:
Point Leader Chris
Point Leader Addison.
Did I mention it's a MECH SIMULATOR!!!
See you on the battlefield folks.
