Default Re: Battletech/Mechwarrior mechs in GURPS

I've used the basic BattleTech rules and GURPS skills. All I had to do was invert the BattleTech penalty sign (a minus two bonus in BattleTech becomes a plus two bonus in GURPS) and everything worked fine. Worked better then I expected, to be honest. It works, out of the box, needing no other modifications.

For 'Mech-scale damage, I just converted it to C-scale damage. That has a PPC doing 1,000 points of normal damage, which seems about right. Just state that 'Mech armor isn't ablative to non-C-Scale damage and you'll be fine.
