About

RogueTech has as goal to provide new challenges and a harsher sim game experience. Survive by any means necessary, because your enemies won't care if you live or die.


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 SMARTER, PUSH THE LIMITS OF THEIR MECHS, AND WOULD LOVE TO GUT YOUR MECH LANCE FROM THE REAR IF YOU LET THEM.

I mean, how fair would it be to just have the player have all these fancy toys?


Highlights

  • Massive emphasis on a full sandbox experience.
  • The entire game has been re balanced. This includes bringing persistent evasion back into the fold for light mechs, though there are weapons that handle the little guys more easily if you're willing to invest the tonnage.
  • Over 400+ 'Mechs: From the pirate commando with infernos, to the Massive King Crab-0001 with twin Gauss rifles, to the clan mechs like the Mad Cat Mk2 ,face off against all kinds of enemies.
  • Over 100+ Custom Tanks
  • With the great houses scrambling for superiority and unlocking the secrets of Helm, new weapons arrive on the battlefield, but nothing is cheap.
  • However, not everyone you go up against is using the best gear available. Some foes are welding weapons onto other weapons to try to get an edge with less money to work with. Don't laugh, you might get put into this situation just like them.
  • Tonnage means nothing!, Everything is balanced around what your lance costs, not what it weighs.
  • Tweak your campaign to whatever difficulty settings you feel like. Want to dance along the edge of bankruptcy every month while haggling your way to victory? Or would you prefer mechs hand-delivered with their original factory wrappings? It's all customizable.
  • Deployments: Head to a planet and dig in for a while. Missions will come at you randomly, whether you're ready for them or not. Bring multiple lances and spare pilots, cause you're gonna need 'em.

Online WAR!!

Basics

  • All factions are at war with each other.
  • Planets offer contracts from the owner of the planet, locals and each bordering faction.
  • Doing contracts for a faction raises their percentage of control and lower the percentage of the others.
  • The faction with the most control owns the planet.
  • If you get high rep with factions they offer you priority contracts that pay better and lead you to currently contested planets.
  • The amount of % a contract moves the control is based on skulls, negotiated rep and bordering planets. Each half skull earns 2% of control.



Online Economy

  • All not picked salvage goes into faction inventory for employer.
  • All sold items go into faction inventory of the planet owner.
  • Every 30 minutes a new shop is generated from the inventory.
  • A bought item is removed from the shop of that faction for EVERY Player (Only one can buy the item).
  • The more of one is in inventory the cheaper it will be.
  • The more of one is in inventory the more likely it will appear in shop and the more of it will be in there.
  • MRB rep shops still work the same.



How Does it work

  • Whenever the game updates the map it makes a request to the Roguetech server and updates your local map based on the current state of the war.
  • After each mission your computer send the result of the mission to the server and that calculates the new map.
  • There is no personal information transferred and no mission result can be tracked back to a certain user.
