Mods

Full mod tool coming.
Coming but waiting for EPIC (waiting for EULA and such).....
MAYBE ON THURSDAY!?!?!? (12/19)
May not because of holiday break.... maybe come in January.

Editor is done.

So Russ says.
But the day I saw the video, I checked because he said they're hoping to get it done the next day and it was two days after that video.
Got the license agreement (the 2nd one) signed (also signed the original earlier on too).
...Still can't use it.
I suspect its quite possible that even come January, either we'll still not be able to use it, or at least not be able to publish mods considering that Epic Launcher doesn't have mod support yet so there's no tick the box to activate/deactivate mods and thus, no good way to put them to use...

Why would you use the epic launcher when the game has its own executable ?!

I think of "mod support by launcher" just as a lazy/convinient way of using mods. Games didn't had "mod launcher support" for years and still had tons of mods.

Just give us the editor before people start writing their own ^_^

To late, im working over a Week on a new Mod and wrote some Tools for Texture editing etc. Posted Image
Im making a "Gray Death Legion" Mod, changing Pixtures, Story Text and Pilot History/Names.
For now i added new Pilot Pictures, changed Name from Mason to Carlyle in all Mission Text, added the right Names for the Enemys like Ricol and Harimandir Singh in Story Text.
Fixed some typo in German Translation, new Ryana Picture, new Pictures for Employees, GarrisonCommanders, Enemy Pilots and some more...

Here are some Pictures, not Photoshop edited or other Tricks.
I make a Video and a Page on Nexus Mod the next Days to proof more.

New Mainscreen:
Posted Image

New Loadingscreen:
Posted Image

All Mech Images InGame now sorted in one Direction, facing right to left:
Posted Image

New Ryana Image:
Posted Image

Rooster - New Pilot Images, Names and History Text:
Posted Image
(some one remember Commander Grayson Death Carlyle ?)

Mission Planing - New Pilot Images, Names and History Text:
Posted Image

more coming soon...

EDIT:
to clarify, i make this mod just for me personal and now thinking of uploading to the community wen it is done.
but...i used mainly images from "deviant art" and repait, mix, cut or do anything with them to fit the style i want. like new loading screen, recolored the two gray mechs and ad the Gray Death Logo.

Also i used some pilots from battletech game, ad logo, sometimes new faces and recolor + style effects to have a unique look.
Joel DuQue (Concept Artist at Harebrained Schemes) made so wonderfull Images, i hope he do not search me Posted Image
Check him out here: https://www.artstati...m/artwork/6XgO0

Actual i spend more time on the coding side, find out how to extract all Gamedata, mess up with the uasset files to extract/inject Images and how to edit the Language Files.
PGI made a big chaos with the files, sometimes typo in there settings leading to double images and/or videos. so much stuff inside gamefiles that is not used or are just sample files from unreal 4 engine.
No german translation for the Pilot/Playernames, need to edit the Names in the English Language too...a lot typo or missleading Names in the German Story Translation.
If im not a huge Battletech Fan, im unsure if i not refund my Money Back...but MWO was same, first a bad start and over the Years it became better. Im in hope MW5 get the same over the Years...

Nice loadingscreen. Are the small medical dropships in the game or where do you get those from?

Mechsorting...by what are they sorted? Dosn't seam to be by weight or name.

New Ryana have you drawn it yourself or is that another image from the game?

Captain Carnes looks very familiar ^_^

Nexus mods here I come. Keep it up and I hope the editor, when its released, will help you makeing it easier for you.

The Drop Ships are InGame, also a Clan Dropship and a lot Clan Files.
Im sure there will be later a Clan Update/DLC.

This one is "landed" Model:

This the "fly" Model:

Here is the Clan Dropship, or lets say "PGI" called it Dropship:

Can't launch the editor without it.
Can't download a fixed editor without it (as literally the editor is less than 1 megabyte at the moment).
Can't patch the game without it, so can't have any fixes without the EL.

He said he sorted them so that they all face to our left (the images).
Some of the images in MW5 face right and clash with the look.

As for the "medical dropship", they appear to be shrunken union-class dropships, which is in the game files.
Posted Image
A union class dropship is actually massive compared to a Leopard dropship, almost twice the Leopard's size and weight, capable of carrying 12 mechs with their own bays and two aerospace fighters.

Clans will come, Russ said in the podcast that they didn't had the time to do clans "right" but there is still interest in them.
Still finding so much unused files and stuff is strange for a final release version.

The model dosn't quite look like a Union to me. For me they are like Spaceballs
Posted ImageThe one you fund in the files has this strange extra ring that it makes look a bit odd to me.

I still think a Union would have been the much better choice, given the number of mechs we can have active, for the story but I guess that the Union would have been to big to land in everywhere on the maps.

WOW, nice modding! @Adrian Pride

I hope when the Editor comes that it won't be too coder-heavy, so that a layman like myself will be able to make some nice things..

At least my own pre-made levels or campaigns ans such..

I can't wait for all the great things that I hope for this game to become reality!

I hope PGI takes the right cues from the community this time around, they might have a real gem on their hands..

Very nice model's and Design !
Maybe we can do something together wen there is erm "full" mod support Posted Image
I did not look actual how to swap/insert new models.

To the Dropship, the Ingame Model has 4 Doors. Even with Cinematics Doors.
Textures from the Model leading to the Leopard Folder, so i think PGI maybe wanted to use this as Main Dropship.
Or it is just there for testing, like so much unused files...i mean why is there a "saurons eye" or a "Mannequin" as Models.
Even the MechCon2018 Demo is inside Posted Image

Posted Image

Or maybe a Test for some other Crazy Head like this:
Posted Image
I know that in the Canon some Stuff like this was used...but i prefer more actual Mechwarrior Style, were Pilots went in underwear inside...Reactors can became hot ;-)
Dont ask me how this poor Pilot ever move his Head left/right to see Enemys.

I like the Union even as mini, more then the Leopard:
Posted Image

I can post some Images from the Game creation/testing Phase.
For all People who do not like the Game Menu and HUD.
The Images from Testing are Way look much worse then now.
Posted Image
Must be early Game Design...but why inside the Game Files like Ton's other Stuff...not every User has Fast Internet to Download...maybe because "Hey we can't deliver 500mb Game on a branded CD this days"...excuse my Humor Posted Image

Posted Image

Sooooo cool!!!
No longer spend hours searching for nice fitting Characters and try to edit them to one looking Style.
I made a short test with the eve online character editor and it is amazing <3
Posted Image
Now it will go much faster creating new Character Images for Mechwarrior5, that have all the same Style and look more like adult/serious/rogue what ever...year 3.000 People and not something like fortnite clowns!

Thank you !

Reminds me of an art trick I used to get through the 2D portion of art school for the more advanced stuff that I just couldn't do like people.

Just better at 3D than 2D, and machines than people.

Something tells me we'll someday see furries, ponies, and anime characters done similar ways.
Probably why my mod's gonna stick to weapons and other game improvements rather than the cosmetics of the UI and stuff; people might like the guns but not like any UI stuff I do, and I want my mod to be compatible with a number of other mods.

I like the Eve chars and the added filter to give them a slightly cartoonish/drawn look. I will be happy to exchange the character images as soon as you are done.
