Ancient Wonders

Before there was even a Star League, the technologies taken for granted in the thirty-first century went through their awkward paces in a universe newly opened to humankind. In an age when the BattleMech was nearly unknown, when the DropShip was a new concept, and when tanks and fighters dominated the battle zones, the technology of the day was primitive by modern standards…and each new design with an experiment unto itself.

Experimental Technical Readout: Primitives, Volume 5 samples more of the early technology designs that dominated the universe of BattleTech during the pre-Star League Age of War period. Each design featured in this book demonstrates the primitive technology level of the first generation of BattleMechs, the last generation of Combat Vehicles (before the ’Mech supplanted them), and the low-tech aerospace units that flew above them. Although many were ultimately upgraded to "modern standards" and shown in Technical Readout: 3075, the units featured here reflect these designs as they were when first introduced to the universe they fought for. Statistics and Record Sheets are included for 13 Primitive BattleMechs, vehicles, aerospace units presented in this book, ready for play in advanced BattleTech games.

eBook Availability
Experimental Technical Readout: Primitives, Volume 5 is available from the following eBook/PDF vendors:

:
A quick update to address a bug (I'm not perfect) and implement some shiny new technology. The below lists these changes in more detail:

Defects
  • Fixed an issue where, after placing a launcher when Artemis is enabled, the launcher was still listed in the Needs Distribution list, but another piece of equipment disappeared.
Enhancements
  • Added a Name filter input box on the Weapons & Equipment screen to quickly and easily filter the equipment that is displayed in the dropdown. When a value is present in the box, all equipment with partial string matches will be displayed. So entering 'laser' would show every equipment with that term, including items such as Small Laser, ER Large Laser, and Laser Anti-Missile System.
  • Tweaked the way the inline search works when the equipment dropdown is opened. Previously when the dropdown was open and you started typing, it would try to find an exact match to what you typed starting with the first character of the equipment name. Now, the match is for anywhere in the equipment title. For example, if you typed 'Cu', the dropdown would automatically scroll down to, and select, 'Rock Cutter'.
  • When placing an Artemis or Apollo equipped launcher, the corresponding Artemis or Apollo system will now be auto-placed in the critical slots immediately following the launcher; provided there is sufficient space for it to be placed. This will make it easier as you now no longer need to place a launcher, then select the Artmeis/Apollo system from the needs distribution list, and place it.
  • The following new weapons and equipment from Interstellar Operations have been added and are now available for use. :
    • RISC Advanced Point Defense System
    • RISC Emergency Coolant System
    • RISC Heat Sink Override Kit
    • RISC Hyper Laser
    • RISC Laser Pulse Module
    • RISC Repeating TSEMP
    • RISC Super-Cooled Myomer
    • RISC Viral Jammer (Decoy)
    • RISC Viral Jammer (Homing)
