New Development Snapshot 0.47.6 for Megamek, MegaMekLab, and MekHQ
Hi Everyone,
About a month since our last dev release and we had some nasty bugs in 0.47.5 for MekHQ. Those should be fixed for this version.

There isn't a Mac release and you'll have to use the Unix release. We are having issues with the Gradle packaging scripts and various security settings in MacOS.  We are working on the issue and have no ETA for a fix.

We got bug fixes. Abandon ship! Large spacecraft can now launch escape pods, giving the opposing player more opportunity to commit war crimes. Princess has also gone back for a couple of combat classes at flight school and learned that turrets should be mounted on the top floor to be more effective. A ton of new sprites (Thanks Deadborder and Saxarba). Speaking of Saxarba we've made his tileset (we were using Atmospheric) the official default tileset of Megamek.

In a word bug fixes and one feature - overhauled Battle Armor Record Sheet printing.

For MekHQ we've got a chunk of bug fixes and a few QoL new features. See the impact of the war crimes in Abandon ship! first hand in MekHQ.

Also a reminder to drop into the Slack channel to meet other players and harass the devs that drop in and out. If Slack isn't your thing check out these Discords with Megamek channels - Everything BattleTech and Classic BattleTech

As a reminder when moving between versions:
1)   Make backups of your campaigns and customs.
2)   Always treat each release as a stand alone release and only copy your data forward from older versions.

There is a good chance you’ll have issues in MekHQ with unit name changes.  If you get errors loading your campaign as result of unit name errors please see this post.
