Unit Search has had the "Only units with Battle Value" checkbox changed so it now defaults to unselected. A default search for a unit will now show all results, regardless of whether it has a Battle Value listed or not.
The MUL has made some updates to the Alpha Strike Unit Cards. We now have separate unit cards for BattleMechs, Aerospace, Vehicles, ProtoMechs and Infantry! No stats have changed, it's the card layout for which stats are shown, which criticals are listed, etc.
The Alpha Strike Force Builder print PDF option is now working again. Thanks Skyhigh!
Several weeks ago now, the Master Unit List moved to a new web host, along with several other BattleTech related websites. The new web host does not have all the functionality of the old one, and our developer is working on making the changes necessary to return all the functionality. For the MUL, the remaining known issue is the Alpha Strike Force Builder not being able to provide the PDF when the print option is selected.
As some of the other sites have more problems, they are curently the priority and it may be awhile before the Force Builder print option is working again. Sorry for the inconvience. The best workaround I know of at this time is to copy and paste the individual AS cards in to Word or another software and print them from there.
Battle Armor units now have three Alpha Strike cards. The first is for 4 suits (standard Inner Sphere Battle Armor squads). The second is for 5 suits (standard Clan Battle Armor squads), and the last is for 6 suits (standard Comstar/Word of Blake Battle Armor squads).
Eventually we plan on adding BVs for each squad size.
It's been hiding there for a while, but there's now a link under Tools to an Alpha Strike card generator for custom units. You supply the Alpha Strike stats, it will build a card for you. Thanks Skyhigh!
We hadn't included a PV (Alpha Strike Point Value) cost for the TOR (Torpedo) special ability. Unlike other special abilities, it is not included in base damage. All units with TOR have had their PV updated.
Skyhigh added a new feature a while ago, I just wanted to point it out to everyone. Next to Units (in search, or on the Unit's page) is a +Force button. Clicking this button will give you a note about the unit being added to your force. You can do this multiple times, with the same unit or other units.
Then when you go to the Force page (from the top menu), you will see a list of all the units you have added to this Force. You can remove units if you'd like, or clear the entire Force.
Finally there's a Print icon in the upper right. From here you can choose to print a unit list (basically like you see on the page) or Alpha Strike cards (or both). This actually creates a PDF that you can then either save or print.
Alpha Strike unit cards now show the 0* for those units that use the minimal damage rule found in the Alpha Strike Companion (and errata to the Alpha Strike rulebook).
The database was not set up to allow non-numeral damages in the Short, Medium or Long range damage values. So when the import tried to place 0* in those fields, it just put a 0.
We're working on correcting this, but the change affects a lot of things so it may be a while.
The Master Unit List was updated today with new Alpha Strike cards using the new Point Values (PV), Minimal Damage rule (0*), special abilities (REAR, FUEL, etc) from the Alpha Strike Companion. If the unit has a card, as of today, it has been updated.
Battle Armor is currently showing 4-man squads for Alpha Strike cards. We've got a new system in place to allow each Battle Armor to have a separate card for 4, 5 and 6 man squads, but we're still working on how to get the data in the database. For now, it's showing 4-man squads only.
The ability to search for BattleForce and Alpha Strike special abilities is back! You'll find it under the Basic Filter in the Unit Search. Enter separate special abilities with a space between, and the search will find units that have all special abilities you listed.
For example, ENE C3S will show you all units that have both ENE and C3S.
Technical Readout 3145, the PDF series, has had its units added to the Master Unit List database. Battle Value and faction availabilities are listed now. Art and Alpha Strike Stats will come later.
My host is moving servers around and my server's IP will be changing. You may not be able to load the following websites until DNS changes have completely propogated.
XTRO Boondoggles Units are now available with BV and availability. Have fun with the strangest XTRO of all time.
Units from Interstellar Expeditions: Interstellar Players 3 have been added to the Master Unit List along with their availabilities during the Jihad and Republic eras.
Units from Experimental Technical Readout: Succession Wars Vol. 1 have been added to the Master Unit List along with their availabilities during the Jihad and Republic eras.
Units from Record Sheets: 3067 Unabridged have been added to the Master Unit List along with their availabilities during the Jihad and Republic eras.
Added links in Notes to the BattleCorps webpage that is the Technical Readout entry for units that were "TR'd" there. We've also marked which units had full Technical Readout entries there (the Featured tag), as opposed to which were just mentioned as variants. These are all marked as BattleCorps for their TR source.
The ones we've done so far are all available without a BattleCorps subscription, anyone can go the link and read the entries. These are all additional, new at the time, Project Phoenix variants. The Record Sheets have generally been done in RS 3085 Unabridged - Project Phoenix, but their Technical Readout writeup is still only found on BattleCorps.
There were later entries done for new RS 3060 Uanbridged units. These have not been marked/linked in the MUL yet.
There is now a Notes field on Units that will tell you where to find the correct record sheet if the unit uses another unit's record sheet. Example, VTR-9D is just another name for the VTR-9K. The VTR-9D unit page now has a note saying to use the VTR-9K record sheet.
Welcome to the BattleTech Master Unit List. Since even before Total Warfare was first published, it has been our goal to provide BattleTech fans with a comprehensive list of game units and their corresponding Battle Value.
This product is the first Battle Value list for units using the Total Warfare rules set. It offers over 3,500 variants for well over 900 individual combat vehicles.
We have also provided faction availability for the Jihad era and Early Dark Age (Republic) era.
Future releases on this free version of the Master Unit List will be updated with new information as well as units from upcoming product releases. Also planned for upcoming releases include complete Dark Age faction availability and faction information for the Homeworld Clans. This release is focused on the Jihad and Early Dark age era and does not cover Homeworld Clans.
We hope you find this tool useful and welcome your feedback to make it a better resource, in the future.
