Will you be a living legend or a forgotten casualty? MechWarrior:Living Legends (MWLL) is a total conversion modification for Crysis, MWLL is at its very core a mix between First Person Shooter and Simulation. This will be achieved through the use of a mixed arms massively multiplayer gaming experience where the player takes part in a battle using a variety of vehicles and weapons MWLL is using the concepts pioneered by the “Battlefield” franchise and more recently Crysis, of a sandbox feel where you get to play what you want and how you want it. MWLL depicts the epic struggles between the two factions of Battletech “The Clans” and “The Inner Sphere” In the project we will be bringing some of the legends of MechWarrior back to life.

Four Variants: IS_Harasser

What used to be an extremely mobile and swift missile plattform, has now become a real weapons plattform: the Inner Sphere's Harasser. See below the four variants you'll find in the first public playable version of MWLL. The vehicle itself is undergoing extensive remodeling at this time, which is why the version in this screenshot does only have placeholder textures on.

i find the explosions waay to "ringy"

it should be better if its an entire smoke "dome"
