@Havamal, isn't this subforum generally for BattleTech stuff unrelated to this specific game? Wouldn't this make more sense as a sticky in the parent forum, since that's where mechanics for this game are discussed? With a minor tweak to the thread name, it could take the place of Eck's guide and instead reference that guide prominently.

EDIT: The post has been moved and re-stickied, thanks!

It would, if there were more real estate there. (As we discussed previously) The main forum sticky area will be for dev stuff and new announcements for the present. Eventually those will end up in the news and updates sub as they age out of the main and then perhaps this will be revisited.

Otherwise lets avoid discussion here, this is not a discussion thread.

no. the one that shows all of the planets with attributes. so if you wanted to find +++ weapon you would click that option and it would add up manufacturing, rich, high population, star league and if a planet had all four it would be a big yellow dot, 3/4 was red, 2/4 another color, 1/4 red, 0/4 grey.

then there was the same for star league mechs or somehting.

basically the map that showed me the hurik, something something, tirangle travel pathern that gave you the best chances to find +++ weapons in the shops.
