It wasn't deliberate. Well it was, but it wasn't done out of spite. Once the lawsuit against PGI has been settled we will know one way or another if the unseen will return.

Thanks! Looking forward to it in future content. :)

As my signature will attest, I too am awaiting the moment I can take to the Battlefield in my beloved Marauder.
Of course it wont be long before it's overheating like a fevered pig in a sauna, but at least it will look cool while doing so :D

Multiplayer is found under the Skirmish main menu option, but there is no local multiplayer at this time. In the future perhaps.

Hot Seat in this sort of game is comment and I'm a little disappointed to not find it.

This game has online cross platform multiplayer. thats 3 buckets added up.

I believe LAN or local multiplayer or Coop would have to be down the road kind of thing. Its not a part of the release, no a confirmed feature.

Online Multiplayer is a category that appears to be a subset of Multiplayer on Steam if there's Online Multiplayer, Multiplayer will be listed as well. If a game has LAN play, hotseat, and/or co-op it will be called out as Local Multiplayer, Shared/Split Screen, or Co-op respectively. The only way to play multiplayer at this time is by playing via the Skirmish Multiplayer option which requires a Paradox account.

I hope this helps.

You were tinkering around with an auto simulate for contracts, any details you can give us on when this feature will make an official appearance in the game outside of developer mode?

Are there Clan ‘Mechs in the game?
The game is set in 3025 so there are no Clans yet, but in success, we plan to move the BATTLETECH timeline forward in later installments.
When you say later installments, do you mean DLC or simply releasing a new game altogether? Or has that not been decided yet?

You are new to Paradox Interactive? If a game published by them does well it usually receives extended support throughout the years from multiple expansions.

Now the real BIG question is how will that affect the people who made this game possible (ks backers) if any extra paid features are announced esp. since a slew of stuff from the initial kickstarter hasn't even made it into the game.

Not been determined yet beyond statements saying HBS prefers large, expansion sized content over small, microtransactions type stuff.

HBS has stated that HBS retaines complete creative control over the game.

Update #38 Beta Date! Gameplay Video! New Partnership! Exclamation Points!!! said:
Does Paradox have control over the design of the game?Nope. HBS has complete creative control of the game. Paradox has lots of BattleTech fans who have opinions (just like our Backers) but HBS is not obligated to take their feedback. That said, the company has lots of experience with strategy games and we’d be dumb not to listen.

You mentioned expansions. What's the plan for post-launch content and DLC?
In success we hope to release full-fledged expansions to the game and intend to focus on that over small pieces of DLC.

What about sequels? Does Paradox have a say in those?
We have no agreement with Paradox to release sequels to the game at this time. If our relationship goes well, we’ll consider it in the future.

That is a compleylty seperate statement that was in reference to the base game. It is up to the discretion of a publisher to either continue to provide support or not. PDX having purchased the publishing rights could decided there would be no future content if it was fiscally speaking in their best interest to do so. So if PDX says no, than it is no & yes is a yes. The only way HBS could get around such an issue is if they developed a standalone game that didn't incorporate the current game (unless the publishing contract gave PDX all future rights under the BT banner for a set number of releases and/or years).

I'm having this exact same problem. For a time I was able to do both contracts in a system. Now when I accept a contract, jump to that system and do the mission, the second one is gone. The my only choice is to do the main campaign mission in a different system or select from 1 of 2 other contracts, both on the same planet but a jump away. So I'll select one of those, make the jump, do the contract then the second one that was there is gone, but 2 more for a new planet appear. This does this over and over again. I cannot do 2 missions or more in the same system at all anymore.

I really need help. How do I move a Mech from storage to the mech bay?
When looking at a mech in storage there is a button over on the right that will order your crew to begin to make them ready. You will need an empty slot in the mech bay and it takes a few days for them to get it ready for combat.
