No problem Mr March. Like most people here, I want the forums to stay as civil and courteous as possible. If there is to be any bad blood or flaming going on, it certainly won't be due to any contributions from my end.

And I'm sure Newton was just acting out of concern for a fellow Gearhead (what I call people that frequent these forums - not an insult mind you as I include myself in this group).

re-post of notice:
Hello again everyone. I can see from all the unread Private Messages here in my inbox and activity in this thread that many have questions and concerns about the Macross Mecha Manual during my absence. I'll try to answer as much as I can, but please be patient with me during this busy time.

Firstly, I'm definitely interested in maintaining the Macross Mecha Manual online. The whole point of the site was, updated or not, the content was to remain up as an online archive for as long as I was alive. I was aware that my current home for the M3 was going offline this year. However, I was told I had until the end of this month to find a new home. It appears the domain has expired much earlier than the end of February and the site has gone down faster than I had anticipated. As a result I'm being flooded with e-mails and e-mail notices from concerned visitors on forums all across the net. I suppose I'm to blame for initially advertising the M3 as widely as I did, lol smile.gif Nonetheless, the response is nice to hear and I'm glad everyone cares this much about the website.

Second, I have been sent notices from several people offering to host the M3. Thank you all very much for the offers of support. I will definitely be taking one of you up on these offers. Discussions are currently in the works and hopefully this will result in the M3 returning online sooner rather than later.

Thirdly, I am of course aware updates to the M3 have slowed. This is due to my real life demands (awaits inevitable collective groan). However, there is a silver lining. Before life demanded my attention elsewhere I had created a substantial amount of new/updated material to add to the M3 (which a few of you were already aware). I just haven't had the time and/or motivation to update the M3 website. If I can arrange a new home for the M3 online, it will come back online WITH all the new material from the postponed update included. The majority of the update includes new material for the Macross II section and a site-wide revision of virtually ALL black & white line art (improved scans, collated pictures in fewer files, previously unreleased line art and other improvements). The update also includes new Macross Chronicle trivia and numerous color corrections/revisions to existing mecha.

Lastly, I'd like to ask you all to help spread word about this post of mine to any concerned fans. It would really help me if we could distill all the e-mails and notices with questions/concerns to a few threads like this one on websites such as here at Macross World, the MAHQ or Gearsonline. Sadly I've been gone from all those forums as long as I have been from Macross World, so I might not post there. If I can locate my passwords for those other forums, I will log in and re-post this notice. Digressing, if you can help me funnel all the online communication into a few designated spots, it would really help. Right now there's simply too many e-mails for me to respond to in a timely fashion.

Thank you again for all your help and interest in the Macross Mecha Manual. I'm working to get the M3 sorted out as soon as I can. With luck, it'll be back soon and better than ever. During this transition period, I'll be visiting Macross World regularly again and will post in this thread with the latest information. So please make sure to check this thread first for any news about the current situation with the M3. Thanks again.

It's coming. I promise.

re-post of notice
Bad news first: the website isn't back up yet, lol
Good news: I've accepted an offer for server space from Seto Kaiba. I've tested some uploads and the server is functioning well. As soon as I upload the website again, it should be good to go. The M3 was left a work-in-progress the last time I touched it, which was about 8-10 months ago. So I'm in the middle of performing many housekeeping duties to make the site presentable prior to upload. I'm not doing any more new material than what was previously completed as unreleased updates, just removing all the "work notes" within profiles, finishing the writing on new Macross Chronicle trivia that was left halfway done and correcting a few links/pictures.

All I need now is time to work on it. I might get a chance to finish and upload the whole website today, but we'll see. Regardless, please be aware that things are moving quickly and within a few days at most all should be back to normal. I apologize for any inconvenience and thank you all for your patience.

It is done.

New address of the Macross Mecha Manual

I've tested several pages in all the sections to make sure everything is working and I'm happy to say the website appears to be functioning normally. There may be left over bugs or the odd missing image or two, but most of it looks good. If there are any problems, please feel free to send me notice. Again, I apologize for any inconvenience. Hopefully the new server functions well and the updated material will serve as a compensation for any inconvenience. Thank you.

Special thanks to again to Seto Kaiba as well as Uxi and Ignacio Ocamica who generously offered their help

Major Update
Macross Mecha Manual is now on a new server


Welcome back to the new home for the Macross Mecha Manual. I apologize to any worried fans regarding the brief undeclared shutdown of the Macross Mecha Manual that happened just recently. We have had to switch internet providers and our old site went down a little faster than anticipated. However, thanks to Seto Kaiba we have found a new home on the internet. While I haven't been actively working on this website for some time, I did complete a significant amount of work last year prior to my extended absence. This update to the Macross Mecha Manual features 12 new profiles and all previously unreleased work.

Very special thanks go out to Uxi and Ignacio Ocamica of the Macross World forums for graciously offering webspace for the M3. And of course, thanks again to Seto Kaiba.

This previously unreleased material was a major housekeeping effort, featuring extensive revision of colored art and replacement of uncolored line art pictures with revised art. In the past I have often gone to excess with vivid colors, a bad habit which has accidentally produced an almost strobe-like glow for some of the more colorful palettes. To correct this, I have desaturated and/or darkened many colors schemes, especially those using a majority of red or yellow. These revisions also help to differentiate like-colored mecha while producing an appearance more true to the animation. The VF-17 Nightmare profiles will be the most recognizably corrected art as part of this update. In the non-colored portions of the website, I have deleted hundreds of individual pieces of black and white line art that were terribly sub-par. These old pictures have been replaced with superior quality scans and the art has been collected into far fewer pictures per profile (in some cases, only a single picture for each entry). This method of presenting line art is more efficient, saves space, makes navigation easier and permits fans to examine/compare vehicles from multiple angles on a single page.

Unfortunately updates have been few and demands of life have called my attention elsewhere for this past year. I will make every attempt to continue revising and updating the Macross Mecha Manual. However please be aware at this time I am still unable to prioritize the M3 and future updates will appear infrequently. I'd like to thank you all for your concern and support during our recent technical troubles. Your continued interest in the Macross Mecha Manual makes the effort worthwhile.

That's great. Thank you. This also reminded me that I was going to add a link to Gears Online a long time back, but I forgot prior to my long absence. I will make up for that error immediately. Acknowledgements page has been updated and a link to Gears is now included.

Thanks for the support Tachyon. You're the best.

Major Update - The Zentradi Invasion!


Today a Zentradi-themed update to the Macross Mecha Manual is complete and features 27 new profiles. The focus of this latest update is new Zentradi artwork as well as new Macross Chronicle trivia and numerous other corrections/revisions.

A concerted effort was made in this update to improve the VF-25 Messiah profiles in the Macross Frontier section. The inclusion of revised color art, additional black and white line art, color code transformation guides and fighter schematics should elevate the VF-25 Messiah profiles to a level that equals the comprehensive format of the other hero Valkyries featured on the Macross Mecha Manual.

As the many temporary Zentradi-themed banners and buttons would indicate, this update also features a major overhaul of many Zentradi vehicles and mecha. The special theme will draw attention to the newly colored Zentradi mecha and hopefully the improved art helps maintain the uniqueness of the Macross Mecha Manual. The many Zentradi-style graphics on the website will be featured for only a short while after which the Macross Mecha Manual will revert to its traditional appearance. Enjoy!

Additions/Corrections

Complete Revision of the "Icons of Mecha" profiles, now moved to a dedicated page titled More Mecha. All profiles have been revised, the Patlabor, Nausicaä and Cowboy Bebop colored art have all been improved and new profiles have been added for The Five Star Stories and Mobile Suit Gundam.

Revised all text-based pages (Updates, FAQ, Books, etc) with new HTML tables that format all paragraphs to no more than 1,000 pixels in width. While this new code does increase vertical scrolling it should make reading the website much easier, especially for those users operating with the new high definition standard (1,920 x 1,200) wide screen monitors.

Added new banner for Master List of Macross Mecha section

Major Update - We Remember Love!


It has been five years since the last update to the Macross Mecha Manual and it is time to remember some mecha love. Despite a lengthy absence, today marks the largest update ever completed for the website. The combined total of debut profiles and revised profiles amount to over 250 new individual pieces of artwork featured across the website. I do appreciate all the emails and love fans have for the website, but please remember the M3 is an archive (not an active news or community website) so updates will remain infrequent.

Today's update to the Macross Mecha Manual features 63 new profiles.

The task for this latest update is to share colored Macross artwork unavailable elsewhere. In much the same way the Zentradi artwork was improved, numerous other mecha are now showcased with enhanced colored art. It is my hope the new colored art will continue to distinguish my website from others and from the artwork found in official publications like the Macross Chronicle. Similarly, all gun pods and missiles site-wide have been revised with new scans and enhanced coloring to give these memorable weapons a place to shine. Other additions include improved black and white line art sections with some new line art pieces not previously featured on the M3 website.

There are two standout features in this update. First is the debut of the Macross Technical Manual, a new dedicated webpage for all fan-made analysis and technical guides about the Macross universe. The debut of this webpage features an article discussing the "Firepower of the GU-11 Gun Pod". The second standout feature of the update is the presentation of fan-made artwork by the talents of Jeff Sorley, Neldorwen, lazyMK, Daniel Dugarte/vectormz and others. These artists have created line art that has either been redrawn from rare published source books or they have drawn completely original pieces based upon the animation. This update features dozens of these pieces for fans to enjoy.

Another feature in this update is the revision of common/support vehicles. Since variable fighters, robots and ships are the stars of the Macross series those designs were prioritized for the Macross Mecha Manual. Most other vehicles were added only to provide a varied catalogue of content. Lacking sources for Macross line art and color reference meant many of these common/support vehicles were featured in tiny, poor-quality scans with inaccurate colors. Now with a much larger book collection at my disposal, many vehicles have been scanned in high resolution and feature superior colors. I have also added a small portion of new vehicles - some not found colored in any Macross publication - to once again add a little variety to the website catalogue.

Still other features of note in this update come thanks to the release of the Macross franchise on the Blu-Ray format. The benefit of these High Definition releases is access to sharp, vivid color reference from which to build better art for this website. All pre-existing screenshots site-wide have been upgraded to High Definition and numerous new additional screenshots have been added, many of which help highlight those blink-and-miss vehicles that some viewers may have overlooked.

A few final additions to round out the update are several new profiles for the More Mecha section. These additions feature mechanical designs from Neon Genesis Evangelion and The Vision of Escaflowne.

As always, make sure to Refresh the webpages you view and/or clear your browser cache to view the new pictures that have replaced existing artwork.

Thanks dude. Make sure to go through the site as there is a lot to see. The Five Star Stories section has some great new material, including a colored drawing of the SR-4 Last Junchoon ODK. Also, thanks for your help with the FSS art and trivia. That section wouldn't have been possible without you!
