[0.95a] Battletech Portrait Pack
« on: June 06, 2021, 11:00:33 AM »

Do you guys like Battletech?

Of course you do, I've seen the Discord.  So why not take a bunch of characters from that other game in a dystopian sci-fi future where mankind uses its precious, irreplaceable technology to kill each other and make them available in a game where mankind uses its precious, irreplaceable technology to kill each other?

Featuring:
  • Over 100 new and interesting people to hire and/or shoot at, most of whom are absolutely not the advance scouts of a warrior society descended from a star-spanning empire's exiled military!
  • Tweaked to (hopefully) look somewhat decent in Starsector!
  • Everybody from HBS' Battletech is here, even the awful guy you immediately put in an unarmored Spider and send off to receive his viking funeral!
  • BONUS NEW GREAT VALUE! Additional ship names pulled from a night wiki-walking Sarna.net, ported into Starsector!  Replace the 500 Drams named "Old Earth or Bust" in the market with 500 Drams named "Bloodlettter!"  (What scope creep?)
  • Do you want your character to be a parrot wearing sunglasses, but you're afraid that everyone is going to judge you if you download the furry portrait pack?  With this mod, you can!

Please let me know if you encounter any issues/graphical wonkery/want to yell at me about how the katana dude(s) isn't in the portrait list for your favorite faction.

Release notes:
Spoiler

-Corrected a few typos in ship names list.
-Removed non-vanilla .faction files.

1.0:

Sweet!

Also thankful for the ship names. It's no coincidence one of my first pilots was Jerome Blake.

There is nothing more of value I can add to this reply  :P

I had such a good laugh after reading about this guy wiki, can you tell me what that's all about, I'm a sucker for BT lore but never heard of him.

And now I don't even have to actually change the names, I can totally just leave the SLS as their faction identifier and the names will be right.

(Narrator: he kept changing the names to try and match the classes.)

He's one of the backer pilots (ronin) from the Battletech Kickstarter, where if you pledged $2000 or more you got to create a character that appears in the game.  Spending 2 grand to make a character with that backstory is either a poorly conceived joke or the product of someone who has described himself as a "sigma male" unironically.

This is cool; I hope it was done with permission and is allowed to stay.

Hah, never thought of BT/MW as a source of portraits when it should have been so obvious. The edits make most of them look right at home in SS, thanks for the mod.
