I was wondering if anyone has a master construction chart that includes ALL the charts you need specifically for construction of battlemechs and in particular their weapon and equipment lists as well as optional construction components like XL and the stats for how you fit that into the construction process. if it has a quick gamerules description under each that'd be great. 

I'm trying to get some new and/or old veterans to play and need the full construction rules so they can build whatever they want in the ruleset. I can dig up and add the costs and BV charts if I have to but I wondered whats already been done that would help me in this endeavor? I'm thinking this discussion is one to easily answer and close

Software that is most up-to-date that i know of is megamek lab.

Solaris skunk werks is also mostly good.

The rules are mostly in techmanual. But tacops, strat ops, and interstellar ops have more equipment and rules in them.

For the Android OS, I've found that the MechFactory app works surprisingly well for something free. It falls flat on descriptions of non-weapon equipment, but it otherwise has everything up to TRO 3145, as well as a competent 'Mech and Combat Vehicle editor/creator.

That is a good app, I use a Bluestacks emulator to run android apps and they all have cellphones. even without Wi-Fi at my house they can bring their own designs now. also have the full pdf books and added some notes and bookmarks, still haven't compiled the so-called masterlist I said I was gunna. too busy playing War Robots and Instant War.
