Site Patched to 2.18.5:
A few more updates to be had, including a big change to the filter functionality. Details are below:

Defects
  • Fixed an issue where site messages you saved as a Draft were not showing up in your Drafts folder. They appeared to be lost, but in actuality they still existed. The query to retrieve them from the database was incorrect. So all Drafts will now appear as expected in your Drafts folder
Enhancements

  • I added the filter functionality present every else on the site to the Downloads section. You can now perform a filter against the downloads on this site and search on a number of varying fields.
  • Enhanced the filtering capabilities while using the advanced filter dialog. The way it worked previously was you could add a field to the query just one time, and all fields were joined using an AND statement. The filtering capabilities are far more robust now, and allow for the following:

    • You can add a field to your query as many times as you'd like.
    • You now specify the logical operator used to join two or more fields together. This is done on a per join basis. So you can select AND for some conditions, and OR for other conditions.
    • You can group fields by adding brackets around the fields you want to group. Brackets will evaluate grouped fields together before joining that result to other field.
    • You can change the order of the query by moving fields up or down depending on where you want them in your logic.

    An example of the above functionality in action can be seen by viewing this filtered unit list. The search returns all BattleMechs with the following conditions:

    1. Is an Inner Sphere Technology Base
    2. Has a Battle Value between 2,000 and 3,000 (inclusive); adjusted for a warrior with a 3 Gunnery and 4 Piloting
    3. Mounts a Light PPC or a Heavy PPC
    4. Is not Mixed technology

Touring the Stars: Wynn's Roost:
While the Outworlds Alliance shrunk on ComStar’s maps for two hundred years, not all of disappearing worlds died. The “Outworlds Wastes” also included secessionists, would-be pocket imperial capitals, abandoned worlds, pirate havens, pirates’ victims, and imagined sanctuaries from the bloody Succession Wars. Wynn’s Roost was one such world, alternately seceding from the defenseless Outworlds, attempting to build an interstellar nation, being abandoned by collapsing civilization, and suffering pirates’ depredations. The sulfurous world has outlasted its pirate tormentors, rebuilt its industrial base, and hosts a growing population that is now reaching out to the stars. It is a glimpse of the potential of the modern Periphery.

Touring the Stars is a whistle-stop tour of the universe! Every system and planet where mankind treads in the BattleTech universe has a story, for those with the drive to explore it. Take a tour of the stars humanity now calls home, experience awesome new worlds, immerse yourself in the local civilization, and prepare to do battle in exotic locales.

Touring the Stars: Wynn's Roost is available from the following eBook/PDF vendors:

================================================================================================
Overview:
    Rogue Phoenix began as a GHR-5N named Rogue Angel by it's original pilot. It was rebuilt as
    the GHR-5RA as a graduation present for the current pilot. After Rogue Angel was crippled
    during the fighting on New Avalon in 11/3066 the decision was made to rebuild it with a XL
    engine and to upgrade the Medium Lasers to Medium Pulse Lasers. Due to the extensive refit
    the pilot decided to rename it Rogue Phoenix.
    
    
    
    Note: as anyone who's seen my other design can tell I love energy boats and the
    Grasshopper-5N always was a favorite of mine.

Capabilities:
    The switch to Medium Pulse Lasers means that Alpha strikes are no longer recommended outside
    of emergencies. While this cuts the maximum damage potential I felt that the trade off of 3
    points less damage for 8 points less heat at short and medium ranges was worth it. While the
    XL engine is more vulnerable to damage I felt that the upgrade to Medium Pulse Lasers and
    the extra armor more then compensated for that weakness.
    
    The distribution of weapons means that even with both arms destroyed Rogue Phoenix has a
    decent close range bite.
    
    

Deployment:
    One of a kind Rogue Phoenix fought on New Avalon during the last stage of the Fedcom Civil
    War.
    
    
    
    (Note I made both designs for use in a fan fiction. If I can ever find some decent
    information on the Blakeist Jihad I might have the pilot and mech serve during that
    conflict. Also I might consider doing a story about the original pilot's son set during the
    Dark Age era.
