RogueTech is a mod for BattleTech, created by LadyAlekto and Morphyum.
Makes BattleTech more Roguelike
RogueTech has as goal to provide new challenges and a harsher simgame experience. You have to survive by all means, the enemy's will do their best to kill you and no one gives a rats ass about some merc dying
The timeline for this mod is at the start of 4th Succession and the War of 3039, when the the first technologies of the Helm Core appear around the sphere.
THIS MOD IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EASY, ENEMIES ARE DEADLIER AND THAT'S INTENTIONAL!
I mean, how fair would it be to just have the player have all these fancy toys?
Big, RogueLike, Sandbox Experience
Rebalanced Sim and Combat game, to give you a harsher world.
More Mech's: From the pirate commando with infernos, to the Massive KingCrab-0001 with twin Gauss rifles, face off against all kinds of enemy's.
With the great houses scrambling for superiority and unlocking the secrets of Helm, new weapons arrive on the battlefield, but nothing is cheap.
Tonnage means nothing!, Everything is balanced around what your Lance costs, not what it weights
MASSIVE CUSTOM CAMPAIGN DIFFICULTY OPTIONS
If you had other mods installed, and the game doesn't start, delete all saves that uses these as the game may
try to reference files from these and can crash on start-up
This is a HBS issue with internal databases on saves, not a RogueTech bug
The first start takes a while, modtek builds its own database from nearly 4000 files, that takes a while, up to 20 minutes, starts after that are extremely fast, please be patient
