The Mech Bay

The number one site for MechCommander content on the web!!

Welcome to my fan-site for the MechCommander video game series!! Feel free to look around and leave a comment :)

This site is best viewed on desktop, and is still largely a work in progress.

The MechCommander games are set in the BattleTech universe, a futuristic sci-fi setting in a dystopian age of war, which originally started as a board game that released in 1984.

The MC series consists of MechCommander (1998), its expansion MechCommander: Desperate Measures (1999), MechCommander Gold (1999) (a compiled version of MC1 and MCDM), and MechCommander 2 (2001). They are real-time strategy games for the PC in which the player is in command of various BattleMechs, piloted by MechWarriors, and must complete missions with different strategic objectives.

Although it is not a part of the MechCommander series, the 2018 PC game BattleTech is considered a sort of spiritual successor to the series. There have also been a number of fan-made MechCommander mods and games.

Site updates

3rd April 2024

  • Added to the links page and combined it with the mods page (which didn't have anything on it anyway, but since I'm not really into modding I though I'd just put the mods I've found on the links page rather than have an entire separate page for them - other people have much better mods list pages so I'll simply link to them instead).
  • Updated the MC2 page and the MC2 characters page. Started to update the MC2 Mechs page.
  • Managed to get MCG working on my laptop yesterday, so I've been having a lot of fun playing that again :)

17th July 2022

  • A few updates to pre-existing pages - to prove I'm still thinking about this site and the games!! I've also been possibly thinking about either expanding this site, or making an entirely new site, about the MechAssault games, since I've been replaying MA2 recently. I want to finish writing about MC first before I possibly branch out to that though.
