Well, for the record, I've been (halfway) working on several Heavy Gear
conversions into DS II; if I ever picked up SG II, I'd probably do them
there, too.  (How close *are* the two systems?)  In fact, having all the
gears that I go (what, 12+ and counting?) I'm finding it likely that I'd
buy SG II so I can use the things there... they certainly won't work in
DS II. ^_-

One problem is that some of the weapons systems (i.e., missiles) have
different levels of importance in the games... in HG, guided missiles
are fairly nasty weapons, while they seem to be considerably less so in

Anyway... I'll see if I can dig out some of my conversions (I know
there's a Kodiak around here somewhere...) and post them, if anyone's
