Hopefully the first of many Battletech vehicles I plan to slowly bring into the game. My goal right now is to get it at least driveable using SCars 2.0 and SCar Bases to eventually add in turret and weapon functionality.

Goal Features:
Laser main weapon
Three variant vehicles to spawn each determining what secondary weapons the turret has , missiles, machine guns, flamethrowers.
Two player seats: Driver, Turret gunner
Battletech affiliation skins for the each of the five Houses.
Rudder turn with steering
Ability to cross water like airboat

Possible features:
Skins for prominent units from each House

Full LUA script for turret, laser, and secondary weapons, and rudder movement.

    I managed to swap out the Delorean model with the hull. While the front end still rides a little high over the water it does actually turn when you hit the A and D. Tried to slowly cull the time leap stuff but that apparently breaks it at points. Still good no know I can get it more stable if I get lucky.

    Slowly dialing in the performance, no more flips on land but oh can you go sideways and turn more than you want.  Still trying to work out why fly mode breaks turret function.

    Okay, so I got fly mode to work and it's automatic on start. The problem is it's very unstable unlike the Delorian. You can actually do a flip just driving and turning on land Worse getting over water is a wild ride.

    I've updated the download to current compile and addon folder. Downloaders please post comments and suggestions.

    So talking to myself again. I've started reconfiguring the turret so the missiles are a bodygroup that can be turned off when ammo is expended. When I implement ammo. Right now it's just a bodygroup and attachments for the effect and missile origins. Still trying to get those to work. I'm also trying to add a fly mode like the Delorean when crossing water. Or I may just have it in constant fly mode since hovercraft.

    I finally gave up on a jointed collision mesh for the body since it kept coming in sideways. I also found a work around to call in the turret and gun collision mesh. I get stuck trying to walk up the turret but dropping on top of it directly can walk right off no problem. Starting to work on weapon coding.

    Latest update- I've got the yoke and rudder turning correctly. Not synced up with the hands but progress. Fixed the hull issue with $concaveperjoint in qc. Now however it seems the collsion mesh keeps coming in sideways

    Update: I've got the turret and gun moving by just having them as tower and turret like the V92 halftrack turret.  May go back and try the other later. Also figuring out how to use blend sequences to get the steering yoke and rudder to move with turns by following the QC for the Halo warthog. Biggest problem is skinning causes the collision hull to glop again.

    Got the turret and main gun to come in and weld in place without exploding the vehicle on spawn...yes that was a neat as it sounds. Even got the spawn menu icon to work. Still working on getting the right combination for turret functionality. Will try to update zip soon.

    Finally uploaded new zip, it's got a copy of my current folder in addon's, my modelscr and materialscr plus the current max file I'm exporting from. I'm not including obj and 3ds since I'm past modeling now. If you want to inspect the model in those formats post a request.

            Also in good news I've got the chassis to spawn in game. I finally started moving in code slowly leaving out turret and weapon info and it works. Problem so far is I'm dialing in the positions of the wheels, driver and lights as using max coordinates has them too far out. Also tried using the rudder as a wheel to get the side to side movement when turning. It's not the best solution though it moves...and dangles there. Once I get everything in place and the tires invisible I'll move to getting the turret coded, then the main gun and laser.
