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.
This update, combining updates 16 & 17, introduces new particle effects for Mech core explosions - if you thought our former ones were huge, wait till you see the new ones - Mech jumpjets and aerospace engine bursts. Also, we'll be having a first glimpse at the new cockpits that are currently being worked on and get to see the four variants of the Inner Sphere's Harasser missile plattform. As always, we're concluding this update with a few playtest impressions

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.
New particle effects: Mech jumpjets & Aerospace engine blasts
More shiny stuff! New particle effects have been added for Mech jumpjets as well as aerospace engine blasts.
Mech cockpits - Work In Progress
Just recently, a new member joined the MWLL Developer team: Gibbage, who will be working on the cockpits. Some of the results of this work are shown below: a couple of WIP shots of an Inner Sphere cockpit.
New particle effects: Mech core explosions
Exploding Mech core are supposed to be monumental and impressive, which is why they're under permanent observation and examination. The result of this process is yet another updated set of particle effects. Check them out below!
Again, here are a few pictures from this week's playtest.
