The Mech Factory offers a complete, searchable, categorized database of Classic Battletech mechs, battle armors, combat vehicles and protomechs, with all relevant stats, histories and record sheets. It provides information about all Battletech components and their board game rules too, and contains brief descriptions about the CBT powers, fractions, clans, worlds and history. This app could come handy when you play Battletech Board game, or simply read Battletech fiction. If you are a mechwarrior, this reference is just for you. And beside all the library info the app features a complete Mech Editor, a Roster Editor and a simplified combat trial simulation to test out new or existing designs.
Because this app uses the database of the Mech Factory (http://battletech.rpg.hu), it requires internet access to download larger texts or pictures. After you downloaded a design, it will remain on your device, and it will be accessible offline. To enable content downloading you have to register your free account on the Mech Factory (if you don't have it already). With a valid Mech Factory user name you can use both the web page and the mobile app. You can even star your favourite designs to build your own list, and favourites will be syncronized to the web page.
First time you use this app, a simple graphical tutorial will help your initial steps.
The app features a roster editor with a built in unit generator in online mode. Rosters can be syncronized to our online space to keep them safe and enable roster printing. When using the Mech editor you can save your mech creations to our server to keep them safe.
The app needs registration to use it's all features. If you have problems with registration please contact us or try registering online (see page below).
We have included a complete BMR and a MW3 rulebook, because we think that they are abandonware. If you have problems with that, please report us by mail. Note, that we won't feature contents from Total Warfare due legal considerations.
Our combat trial feature let you run simulated boardgame combats between two mechs. It is a great tool to evulate combat performance in regulated environment and to get a raw feeling what a mech is capable.
The Mech Editor is a complete tool to design new mechs from scratch or redesign existing ones. It sports the rules from Tech Manual, Tactical Ops and other rulebooks to validate designs. It will calculate Battle Values and Costs on the fly. In online mode you can share your mechs or print their record sheets too.
NOTE2: Commenting and rating our app low WON'T help your problem. It will just make us angry. This is a free app, we do it from enthusiasm, sacrifying many months of our free time, without any compensation for it. If you don't like it, just uninstall, no problem - that is the civilized way. And if you are treating us with friendship, we can and will always help you. :) If you behave like a troll, we will respond the same manner.
(As a quick fix, please try to uninstall/install, and then register. It might help. Be sure that you are online during the registration process.)
