Does anyone have any of the designs that were posted by another member(I can not recall the name, it was his designs that sparked an idea for a megamek server on that theme) and myself for an alternate timeline where clan tech was never invented, but still they still returned with IS experimental and advanced tech? I must have done a lot of those designs in HMP which I lost due to HD crash many years ago.

Maybe it was Stormwind? I think it was a 5th succession war idea.
I didn't save ANYTHING from Solaris 7.
That rings a bell, and I think you are right about the 5th succession war idea. I did a lot of work reworking and fluffing clan/wob omnis into Innersphere states.
I didn't save anything either because I THOUGHT I had files backed up on a thumb drive. Unfortunately, I appear to have been mistaken.
Good news, bad news. I found a file with a bunch of designs converted to MTF files for import into mechmek. Bad news, it's an incomplete batch. It looks like mostly lights and mediums.... Now I just need to find a working MTF reader.
Ya. Most of the clan omni conversions to IS tech use the clan name for the omni with the is unit abbreviation. ex. Ice Ferret IFT-O or possibly IFT-XO. If listed by variant IFT-O Prime. I found an MFT reader last night and have been working on rebuilding the base units in SSW. Unfortunately, none of the fluff appears to have been saved. Units I have file for now:
Fire Moth FMT-O
Mist Lynx MLX-O
Kit Fox KFX-O
Ice Ferret IFT-O
Storm Crow SCW-O
Shadow Cat SCT-O
Arctic Cheetah ACH-O
Battle Cobra BCR-O
Black Lanner BKLR-O
Coyotl(Is this a canon mech, I don't recall) CTL-O
Crimson Langur CLR-O
Fire Falcon FCN-O
Stooping Hawk SHK-O
I don't have these in my "few" 'Mechs from others.
What I have is the Shadow Hawk III IS.
That person was me, and i have my originals in MTF format only. Sadly i lost the SkunkWerk files in a hard drive crash.
Ya I found the files I had converted to MTF as well, though it was maybe 25% of the total redsigns as it was all clan nights and mediums.
I know I took some liberties with your concept, in the process of my redesigns, in order to finish the set I was working on. I built in a couple of advantages to Omnis that were not available to standard mechs:
1. Omnis enjoyed the use of Clan grade CASE as a byproduct of their modular construction. - The "clan tech" to be used.
2. As a byproduct of this modular construction, more efficient power couplings were used(25% increased construction cost for omnis) allowing them to utilize the IS experimental tech - Enhanced ER PPC.
