The false "no overheating" bit me in the butt. When I saw what event was up right now I bought a couple of heavies with c-bills to make some laser-vomiters. Was not happy when my new night gyr shut down and restarted with orange internals in match. Are the dev's trying to shoe-horn us into playing RL boats? Kinda putting a damper on even playing the event queue this evening.

For my entry to the Costume event, I present the Rock and Roll legends, KISS.

ALL these mechs are owned by Me, all are permanently in these custom paint schemes, and have been into battle many times. I used the Testing grounds and an un-named photo editing suite to put all four mechs into the one image, to give them all context.

I just wanted to say that so far the event queue has really been a lot of fun. Ive enjoyed playing mech chassis I dont normally touch.
I have one huge issue though with the unlimited ammo events, it basically means boat rockets or go home. Its still fun but its a shame because rockets totally dominate what would otherwise have been a really fun and varied game mode.
(There was talk of having some sort of large cooldown period for rockets, its a shame this didnt happen)

Unlimited ammo, Rocket-launchers should be excluded from that.
There is nothing else then that build.

Can anyone please explain how to open an use the free camera?


In the testing grounds, press F5.
Control the camera using an Xbox controller for best results, otherwise it's very tricky. I cannot remember the controls, off hand, but be very gentle with movements or you will whoosh out of the map very quickly.

This is the correct forum thread to submit your screenshots. Great pic!


Hey Daeron -Can we make rules against no photoeditting? As much as I love some of these (the KISS one rocks!) it will just end of being less creative about making a good scene and more about who can edit the best.

My mom said I need to save the MC for the mechs she wants when they will be on offer so I had to use only the decals that we already have.

You can use EVERYTHING MWO has to offer from decals, patterns, colors and bolt-ons without spending any MC or c-bill! Just don't save your camo spec! You can equip the mech of your choice with anything else of your choice and go to testing grounds of your choice to make your picture of choice without spending anything!

Yes.




Yes, it's the link to the image:

It's not my first forum. I did such things like posting pics and vids for many years successfully - but here I'm failing.
Also, before I asked here about help in this case, I searched the forum about it. It's simply frustrating, especially because so many other members can do it obviously.
Nethertheless, thank you for trying to help me Posted Image . Maybe I get an accidental realization.




And even with my 4HP I have problems to get even ONE (!) KMDD in a match. But I have fun with this event.




It's the override that makes the heat kill your engine.
i get 404 not found on the image link maybe that's why it's not working

When they say no heat you still get ghost heat so even with override you can kill yourself.

^this
it levels the playing field for everyone and forces people to get more creative within the limitations of the game.

You can spend hours in photoshop editing the image, changing the color grading, adding type that supports the mood, etc etc, and come up with something that the player who does not have PS skills just has no chance to compete against.
Damn why didn't I think of using GIMP to edit it oh well too late now.

I'm glad that you think my work rocks, but I';m more than a little insulted that you think I have edited the mechs. ALL my custom paint jobs, of which I have around 45 in custom paint, have been created using only in game materials. None are edited. Proof can be shown if you really need it!
