Camo netting
Spotlight/flood lights
Satelite dishes
Radar arms
antennas
exhaust ports
'beaten' armor like the resistance mechs
rebar sections (like the resistance mechs)
modified weapon appearance (still identifiable and no changes to hit boxes, just subtle differences, cooling ports for the PPCs etc)

I always found weird how the UAV appears from nowhere.
An UAV dock in the back slot like the one shown in the old "what were to be Mechwarrior 5" trailer would be nice

I want a big over the shoulders cape with a chain around the neck, something a champ or royalty would walk out in

Also a tail and head piece to make an ANH look like Mechagodzilla :P

It would be really cool to have two different types of faction crests. One that's more geared towards "I am this faction and I wear this proudly" and another that's more "I blew someone up and ripped this crest off their mech". Basically something similar to the existing decals, but with this sort of "badge of honor/trophy of victory" dichotomy :)

is the death of the game


Mechs with tops hats and mustaches is kinda drawing a line for me. Id probably uninstall after that honestly. When games start doing that kinda stuff it usually a sign death is around the corner.

To be fair, with this sort of logic, Solaris is already going to be a death knell.

i think what Revis is talking about is cosmetics that dont fit with the world,
like Top Hats, Monocles, Party Hats, Big Red Ribbons, that wouldnt have been on a BattleMech,
Swards, Spikes, Armor Plates, Claws, even Cloth Capes fit with the feel of BattleTech,

as long as the Theme is kept in the Spirit of BattleTech it will turn out good,
a Davion Nobles Silver and Gold AS7 could work with a maroon Cape,
just as as a Merc using a tattered Cape to hide his SHD missing Arm,

Really instead of "cosmetic" stuff we should be getting actual melee weapons, which are also canon in the game universe.

I don't see why a dummy non-functional undersized comical-looking medieval axe held by a mech can be seen as "realistic" for the game
and not an actual fully-functional industrial drill as a weapon...

im pretty sure its an animation limitation, much like knockdowns were,
a mech would fall down, then suddenly appear(teleport) on its belly and get back up,

just think in order to do a melee strike,
all your weapons would have to be locked out for the duration of the animation,
other wise it wouldnt look to good from an animation and immersion perspective,

I dont think so, no. These weapons are capable of having "continous" damage (they only have "discrete" damage values because of the turn-based factor of the tabletop, much like MGs, etc.) so attacking with them would be much like shooting with a laser or flamer. "Activate" the saw and it will just move with your arm and collide with whatever enemy gets in the way (like the already implemented mech colission damage) doing constant DPS while contact lasts.

@NimoStar
well as a programer my self i know how they would work,
a weapon with just short range more or less and an animation,

but i dont think it would look good if you could fire your weapons wail doing a melee attack,
it would be the same if you played a game and fired your weapon in the middle or a baronet charge,
it just wouldnt look right, which is why i said doing a melee attack should lock your weapons for the animation,
which most likely would be 1-2 seconds at most, i dont see this as being a problem,
