There is a wealth of information available from the
HeavyMetal Software web site. Please check out the
various links below to get to them, and just look
around; you may find something you didn't know about.
If your program main screen never appears when run, you can fix it by going
to the Screen Fix page.
Download the latest release of your HeavyMetal programs, as well as check
what changes have been made in them.
If you have HeavyMetal Map, you'll definitely want to take a look at the
added graphics files made especially for use with it on the
HeavyMetal Map Additional Graphics page.
The Weapon BV Calculator has always been very useful, but now it's been
updated to cover even more. All of the possible missile/cluster hits from
Total Warfare have been included (like17 and 29), maximum range has been
increased to 40, and most important, you can enter separate damage values for
Short, Medium and Long Range (for those Heavy Gauss Rifle lookalikes)! The
expanded range table shows all the values as before, and you can check
calculations the whole way through. Best of all, you can simply save this page
to your computer's hard drive, and calculate weapon BV even when you're not
connected to the Internet. Be sure to check it out!
ART (or ARTy to his friends) is a much-improved artillery planning and
resolution program, allowing you to specify the weapon and ammo type for your
artillery, select your targets and gunnery skill, and randomly calculate and
display damage based on the standard scatter rules from BattleTech. You
can even display the damage on standard map sheet graphics, and print out the
damage grid, with or without the map sheets. Good for planning
artillery barrages for that next game, and give your enemy a real surprise!

Download designs made by HeavyMetal users all over the world, as well as
upload your own designs.
The extra pictures added by TR:3067 have been made available for download.
Although it is normally our policy to not post pictures, due to the huge amount
of space they take up, the 3067 designs were released after the original
HeavyMetal Plus was released. Adding these pictures brings your older copy of
HMPlus up to date with the latest ones.
