Battletech, battletech, battletech, battletech, battlete- MECHS MOTHERFUCKER

Everyone loves mechs. Who the fuck does NOT love mechs? They’re walking tanks, artillery on legs, gigantic power armor suits, metallic monsters of manliness. Guns, guns, guns, armor, guns, armor, armor and some more GUNS. Only a HIPPIE doesn’t love mechs. YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE A HIPPIE BECAUSE MECHS ARE AWESOME.

Alright, so, here’s the deal. We have way too few mech models in GMod. We have loads of tanks, cars, boats, planes, helicopters, VTOLs, APCs, artillery pieces and other heavy war machinery, but we don’t have MECHS! We need MECHS and we need them NOW.

Sure, you would say “We have the Front Mission models that someone por-” WELL FUCK THAT. They’re made of japanese plastic cardboard wanna be composite armor with PUSSY-ASS ENERGY FIELD SHIELD DEFLECTOR PLATE GENERATOR SHITS, they have hands, THEY USE GIGANTIC VERSIONS OF NORMAL EVERYDAY (and a few futuristic) INFANTRY WEAPONS, they SKATE AROUND WITH ROCKET BOOSTERS instead of MARCHING OVER THE ENEMY AND STOMPING THAT FUCK’S FACE INTO DIRT and they look overall impractically designed.

THIS is how we do it:

That there, sir, is FIREPOWER equal to an ARTILLERY BRIGADE mounted on TWO HEAVILY ARMOURED LEGS. DO YOU LIKE IT? YES YOU FUCKING DO. And does it have hands? NO, because it was designed for DESTRUCTION, not ARM WRESTLING. Does it have a head? NO, because it has ULTRA SOPHISTICATED SENSORY SYSTEMS and doesn’t need any HEAD to LOOK AROUND because THAT IS WHAT THE HORIZONTALLY ROTATABLE TORSO IS FOR. And actual cockpits are much more MANLY, because they resemble those of FIGHTER JETS and fighter jets RULE.

Here we see some more of this AWESOME SHIT.

Yes, the last one has HANDS, OH FUCKING COCKSHIT, but that does not matter one bit because the thing can LEVEL A CITY without using any PINK ENERGY SWORDS or JET BOOSTERS like the assfaggotry japanese PLASTIC ANIME VERSIONS. And usually the cockpit has a SKULL painted on it to make the enemy infantry shit 20 tons of bricks, HOW FUCKING COOL IS THAT.

Bear in mind that these are, of course, high-poly renders, the actual game models do not have that much detail.

ModDB page for this shit:

Would be EXTREMELY COOL if some AWESOME FUCKER ported these MODELS.

THANK YOU.

I’m just reminded of how much I want to model a fucking Savage Coyote.
I still haven’t even played this, come to think of it. I need to change that. It’s nice to know there are others out here who love the old Battletech designs.

I’ll see about grabbing a few of the 'mechs when I get some time. Novacat and Madcat are probably gonna be the first I nab when I get to it.

Rip a Mad Dog for me pls

Vulture/Mad Dog and Mad Cat/Timber Wolf all day any day.

Also, this is the greatest request thread ever.

They are cool, but I don’t love them. :stuck_out_tongue:

I still support this though.

SUPPORT, WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH MECHINIZED WARFARE MODELS

I would love some mechs too.

Add my support too.

Pity 3D Ripper DX does not work on MW4 Mercs :frowning:

best request thread of the year

MW4 stuff is horribly low-poly anyways. Not that it wouldn’t be worth a try, of course.

I never got into Battletech but I like some of the designs for the mechs, so you have my support.

Holy fuck! Was this a sequel to Mech Assault or something? A lot of these mechs look pretty familiar.

Mech Assault took all of the 'mech designs from a much, much older boardgame: Battletech.
Mechwarrior: Living Legends is a mod for Crysis (community made total conversion) that is based on Battletech, and takes the general gameplay ideas from the Mechwarrior series of games.

If they look familiar, it’s because all of these things draw from the same base. :smiley:

Do Fucking Want!
