Greetings Fellow Warriors, I am here today to unveil a Stellaris Battletech based game. A massive multiplayer battle where players will vie to control the galaxy. So what exactly am I planning: 1. The battle will commence on the weekend of the 14-15th of October (After Worlds semi finals have concluded), actual start time will be dependent on participants. I will decide on a start time best suited for those involved. 2. There will be a number of Battletech based factions which will be available for players to claim as their own. Current Battletech factions I have include; Federated Suns, Draconis Combine, Lyran Commonwealth, Free Worlds League, Capellan Confederation, Comstar, Clan Wolf, Clan Jade Falcon, Clan Smoke Jaguar, Clan Ghost Bear. Each of these factions have customised populace and government traits to bring them as close to the actual faction as possible. The factions have been split technologically via FTL methods, IS use warp and Clans use hyperspace. There will be some custom races thrown in as well to spread some confusion. Alternatively you can play with your own race. If you wish, you can play as one of these factions, just let me know by replying here with the faction you want to run, first come first serve. 3. There will be three mods that are required by all players who join. These mods are: Fandom Emblems 1.0 = http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=682583213 UI Overhaul 1080p = http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=684509615 Dedicated Worlds = http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=844630489 You will be unable to join unless you have just these mods enabled, no more, no less. I've included the steam links so you can subscribe to them. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it. 4. Faction Claims Lyran Commonwealth = AI Draconis Combine = AI Federated Suns = AI Free Worlds League = Thpoon/Knoife Capellan Confederation = AI Comstar = AI Clan Wolf = AI Clan Jade Falcon = AI Clan Smoke Jaguar = AI Clan Ghost Bear = AI 5. Map setup will be the following: Huge Elliptical galaxy (1000 stars) 11-21 races on the map - I'm limiting players to 15, if the game wants to it can add some AIs afterwards 2-4 advanced start races 2-4 fallen empires All DLCs will be enabled. Don't worry if you don't have these, they are actually based on the host. Habitable planets will be set to 2x Pre-spaceflight races set to 2x End game threat set to 2x Difficulty to be determined based on player input. 6.
