  • Aerotech fighters

  • A beer bottle
  • A clock
  • "Screensavers" or static images to display on your monitors
  • Battlemech and/or aerotech helmet

Cockpit Items, the most ... just hang or stand out in the Windshield, and distract from the action...

How about a Timber Wolf statue? Or a Mad Dog statue?

Or a stuffed "plushie" mech?

A holographic platform that projects PGI's skull logo.

A hanging tag that displays the Solaris VII logo.

Or a rotating pink Solaris VII orb.

An AMS mount that spins and fires off muzzle blasts every time you score a kill (like when the Urbanmech trash can pops up).

A warhorn that screams out "Battletech!" like from the 1994 Battletech: A Game of Armored Combat game (although that could be copyrighted).

An emergency survival pack with respirator, flare gun, and/or first aid kit.

I want to know that my pilot is adequately prepared for the many, many occasions he has to crawl, bleeding and battered, from the smouldering and twisted wreckage of his mangled mech and make the long trek to safety.

(apologies if anyone has already mentioned something like this - haven't checked the whole thread.)

-The Jade Monkey, Kai Allard Liao's famous good luck charm which he gave to Victor Steiner-Davion. Even had a whole Battletech CCG card dedicated to it.

Hello MechWarriors!

This is a contest where you must come up with a serious cockpit item idea!

The Staff will then pick the winner(s) and create the cockpit item in-game!
Then the winner(s) will receive this item for free as the prize!

Now get creative and remember; no goofy stuff this time!!

Hi! Im really glad you guys are doing this! Makes me happy you guys listen to our ideas!

1: Pistol as a dashboard "standing item". Hanging would be... Wrong...
I like Needlers, so thats what I present to you!
Laser would also be awesome!
Posted Image


2: Grenade! Flashbang, Frag, and everyone's favorite (except the enemy!) Inferno! Standing would work, hanging could too.

3: Box of ammunition. .226 rounds, 9 mm, gyrojet. Standing item.

4: A magazine, or laser power pack. That could be a good hanging item.

5: Vibroblade / Vibrokatana for those filthy Dracs. Could be up top like the banners.

6: MRE type food package.

7: Piece of damaged mech armor. Many warriors kept mementos of their kills, consisting of a piece of the mech they destroyed. Good hanging item.

Thanks again!

* rock'em-sock'em robot set with 2 brawly is/clan mechs

* rave-spec laser light show projector (titled Laser Vomit Maker) - it NEVER overheats and has a range over 9000!!

* "DOMINATING!" warhorn, always loved that Unreal Trouney sound effect, doubt it would be permissible.

-Vials/Canisters of Clan DNA, one labelled for a famous bloodname or Khan from each faction e.g. Kerensky for Wolf, Osis for Smoke Jaguar, Jorgensson for Ghost Bear and Chistu for Jade Falcon.

-"Initiate Enhanced Imaging" button/switch perhaps with a holographic 3D rotating model of a Summoner above it (reference to the Battletech cartoon)

-I know people have mentioned a katana sword for Kurita, but it could also be made in Jade Falcon colours to resemble Turkina's famous Katana

I don't purchase cockpit items as they have no combat functionality, but if I were to buy or be given one for having the best suggestion here. It would be this, a bathtub with a bobbing rubber ducky that goes quack quack when I get a kill and if I pull the plug acts as a single use coolant flush. P.S. good luck with the no goofy suggestions Tina
