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.

No clue. Sorry.

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.

This ring a bell too.

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.

Do you have names?

Lycaon posted this 21 April 2020

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

Adder ADR-O

Cougar CGR-O

Viper VPR-O

Ice Ferret IFT-O

Nova NVA-O

Storm Crow SCW-O

Mongrel MGL-O

Huntsmen HNT-O

Shadow Cat SCT-O

Phantom PTM-O

Pouncer PCR-O

Hellion HLN-O

Arctic Cheetah ACH-O

Battle Cobra BCR-O

Crossbow CBW-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

Pariah PRH-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.

Hey Sturm!

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.
