For those of you that missed the release of 0.5.7, we are pleased to announce the immediate release of MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.6.0 public open beta.
Easily being the largest single content release for MechWarrior: Living Legends since our initial beta release in 2009, the MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.6.0 open beta includes 9 new playable assets, 4 new maps, revisions and improvements to the TAG laser designation system, weapon convergence and procedural arm animation for the ‘Mechs and an almost innumerable list of additional enhancemenets, bug fixes and optimisations to existing game features. One of the key features of 0.6.0 is actually the result of the cummulative asset set being released with this patch, that being that 0.6.0 is the first MWLL release that achieves a reasonable assset partity between the Inner Sphere and Clan faction vehicle selections. This will allow for an accurate assessment of the Clan vs. IS game mode options and balance as we go forward.

Download MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.6.0
Before downloading MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.6.0, please reference the installation instructions provided in the Community Wiki here: http://wiki.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php?title=How_to_Install_MWLL
Before installing MWLL 0.6.0 you may wish to copy/move all custom maps to another location, since you most likely will not want to download these again, although if you have them as a backup elsewhere they can just be extracted afterwards to the correct location (MWLL/Game/Levels/Multiplayer/…).
You may also wish to backup your existing Player Profile(s); copy or zip the folder to a new location if not already done, though the Profiles folder should not be touched upon a new install.
Then delete the entire MWLL folder from your ../Crysis Wars/Mods directory.
Download the MWLL installer package from mwlldownload.com and follow the prompts.
MechWarrior: Living Legends is only available as a complete download package (approximately 2.4GB) and there is no upgrade path from 0.5.6
As with all releases since 0.5.0, MechWarrior: Living Legends 0.6.0 only supports Crysis Wars.
Thank you for your continued support of MechWarrior: Living Legends, the premiere MechWarrior/BattleTech total conversion modication for Crysis Wars.
