I guess it's all right to post character sheets related to the private test here. Just don't copy huge excerpts from the new rules wholesale.

By the way, there's no Full Stun anymore, and thus no FST.

It's certainly an interesting strategy, and you seem to have all your bases covered. It's an effective, balanced unit good for the endgame.

However! I have noted, and not just here, an economic problem with MP-like equipment like Add Boosters - if you have to buy extra WP to get the MP increase, you're paying twice the cash for only one and a half times the effect. In that case, you only beak even for Light varieties, and you're likely to not have the cash even at the endgame. You also have the problem where heavies can reach the MP cap, and keep increasing their stats with spare weight past the cap.

To solve this issue, I'm thinking of changing up these items. Instead of being cash equal to MP, it would be using your MP and your WP together to increase efficiency of MP at the cost of weight and slots - ie, a Medium type would have a cost of 2 MP and 2 WP. For types with rounding errors (1.5 per MP/WP, rounded up), there would be a nominal additional cost - $20000, if my math is right. The equipment can be removed and sold as usual, and the MP reassigned.

I know not all Maneuvers are in place yet, and some may be higher level, but what sorts of Maneuvers were you thinking of adding?

Maneuvers:
Target in Sight x2
Heavy Metal x2
Parallel Processing x2
Counter Snipe x1
Opening Act x1
and/or
High Boost x1

I got three things I feel I should point out about what you said with MP. One: The current system works, is simple, and decently efficient, why would you change it to something more (unnecessarily) complicated? and Two: A Dual Add Booster, weighs 6 WP and costs $180,000 (which equals 9 MP in value; $540,000) but provides 10 MP worth of increases ($600,000), how am I spending more? and Three: The different values of parts including their WP added and taken away, is what makes customization fun. If you make it so that any mech can roughly get the same stats as any other mech even other weight class mechs (which I am getting from what you said), you are taking away from the FUN of the game for the sake of BALANCE. If I decide to make a Light mech, I should be limited in what I can and cannot carry, which will affect my stats, but i can always use my weight more intelligently and beef up the stats i want and the defenses i need. Same with a Heavy mech and Medium mech.

All right I see what you are saying, didn't read the part about the add boosters (and yes, you should make a better list of equipment XD, cause right now it means possible errors and more pages open :P).
