I suggest two items.

For the clans: The rembrance either in the form of an ornamented hardcopy or as a semitransparent standing plate that scrolls text.

For the IS: A semitransparent plate that loops a simple animation of a match on Solaris with a sports commenter as a news broadcast. It could be done as an old style mini tv used in trailers if you want some humor.

I would like to see statues of the Totem animals of each Clan as a standing item. They could be made in realistic or stylized form.

Also it would be cool to have warhorns that would actually taunt the enemy with real speech instead of sounds. I can imagine classic Battletech quotes like "Die, surat!", "Freebirth scum!", "Prepare to serve as my bondsman!", "Honorable kill!", "For Kerensky!" or "Terra awaits us!" for the Clans. The IS version could say "Die, Clanner!", "Kick them back to Periphery!", "So much for your superiority, trashborn!" and so on. There would be a random quote on each kill and the voice acting should represent the different mentality of IS and Clans, respectively.

I like the ideas of weapons and side arms ie a katana and holstered pistols.

Maybe a Thermometer that shows the ambient temperature or you mech temp or both.

Spilled versions of all the drinks you can already get.

How about add another possible type of cockpit item the bumper stickers. Personally i'd rip things that people say a lot ether in game or the forums, the classic 'totally op!', 'nerf this', 'get gud'. I'd like 'pug life', 'im not trolling', 'I hate this Map', 'not another disco'...

The list could go on indefinitely, i know they were supposed to be serious suggestions but when were we ever serious about cockpit items.

A Hanging cockpit item that is a child's drawing of his/her parents mech (poorly drawn, yet adorable), shooting at the bad guys (mechs, tanks, planes, etc.). It needs to be done with Crayon or cutout construction paper and pasted on. Have a blue sky with a sun big and bright(smile or no smile). Instead of hanging it is taped up there from the top with your generic tape found in work places or classrooms. Has the words "get all the bad guys and come home soon so we can play" Or something similar to that effect.

Serious, yet endearing. Hope you like it.

I suggest a

Damage-Counter Cockpit Item,

where you can see how much dmg you did so far.


Also a Go-Go-Girl would be awesome!

Well, might be time to revisit the standard achievements with an eye to creating a reward for them. Might even be time to add some more.

For example - Ace of Spades trophy; player gets one for free when getting the achievement for the first time. A placard type of the card (Ace of Spades) with the silhouette of the mech they got it in (in my case, would be a Stormcrow on the card/plaque); can buy other mech silhouettes of the reward for say, oh...50-100 mc each; for whichever mechs they want. That sort of thing.

A working rear view mirror would be nice.
An odometer would be mildly amusing.
Benny Hill warhorn for light mechs.

Footlong 'subway' sandwich (partially eaten).
'vintage' hanging aircraft models.
'to do' list on a notepad - pen/pencil on top that rolls back and forth as the mech walks. (Mech related + get milk and mow lawn)

An alarm clock of some sort that would show system time (the time that you can see in your Windows taskbar).

A few things that come to mind:
  • playing card (ace of spades or queen of hearts?) with a lipstick kiss on it for good luck
  • letter from home (words could be a bit blurry) with a lipstick kiss on it
  • Red gas can/Jerrycan item that says Flamer fuel
  • Big red Staples "Easy" button that says Eject or Self Destruct

My best idea was still Bombshell riding an overlord class dropship bobblehead. But I think I might be able to think up something new.

This one was one of the winners last time, from the 'pimp my mech' contest. I had wanted to see it put in so badly that after they released the waffles cockpit item I PM'd Dennis de Koning asking where it was. Here was his reply; which gave me hope:"Ya, it'll come. We ran into a crunch when it was just started and so we had to put it on the back burner.". I am afraid that if they are running another contest before it was put out, that they forgot about it...

Well I haven't.

A mechanical spare part with wires sticking out (like an alternator or even a distributor cap).

Also, how hard would it be to have 2 standing item spots per cockpit?
