MegaMek client
« on: September 19, 2014, 10:01:35 PM »
The work I am doing on the automation (turning it into a big REST web API) is geared towards allowing anyone to write any client they want for the NBT automation; the "NBT engine" is the part that matters in terms of the automation. So it occurred to me, does it make sense (or, is it even remotely possible) simply to add features to the MegaMek client such that Classic users would never actually have to visit an NBT website to participate in the league? And is that something that Classic players would like, or is there still a desire to use a web site as the primary automation interface? Note that what I am thinking about would also include an interactive starmap in the MegaMek client.

Doing it all through the client is great along with the star map, but would this require forking MegaMek? or would it just be an addon type of thing? I am now just getting back into it and haven't played around too much ha.
