2022/8/1 Patch v14.1.1
v14.1.1 (aka the "Been Awhile Since A Hotfix" release) has been released to the installer. This is a decently content rich patch (thanks to precisely 1 thing), so strap in for it! Let's go:
NEW MECH: The Koschei, a 65 ton Capellan Age of War design, has arrived. The Capellans both field and sell it, though the Canopians also sell one variant on Dunianshire.
NEW MECH: The Albatross, a 95 ton "Banshee-esque" Marik assault, has sped into play. The Albatross, also known as "the very best heavy mech", is a fun time. The Mariks field and sell it.
NEW MECH: The Mercury II, a 40 ton Early Clan design based on the Star League Mercury (which we currently lack), has arrived. It's Early Clan meaning it's all Inner Sphere tech (invented before Clantech existed) and it is fielded exclusively by the Dark Caste.
NEW MECH: The Coyotl, another 40 ton Early Clan design, has also arrived. Based on the Mercury II (to the point that they share a model because they're visually almost identical), the Coyotl has the distinction of being the very first OmniMech ever made. The Dark Caste also fields it.
FACTION STORES: The Lothian and Illyrian stores have been fixed! Whoops! Sorry about that.
PLAYER PILOTS: The BTA Team pilots now have a unique color tag to them (that little symbol next to their names should now be red, instead of purple) so you can pick them out of a lineup easier.
NPC PILOTS: The B-Team pilots (such as Burger Time and Guano) have a second unique skill now, Beginner's Luck (increases crit chance for 1 turn). The VIP in Show the Flag alsoo has a second unique ability, Taking Cover, giving huge DR but also terrible weapon accuracy for a turn.
COMMUNITY CONTENT: Remember that Scorpion/Mongoose/Grasshopper I mentioned last patch? Well, they were *so* stealthy that they slipped right out of v14.1 and I had to hunt them down again. They're in 14.1.1 properly now! There's a new hero mech, the Black Knight "Ebon Legatus". Get it from hero world duels. Also comes with a new weapon, the Ultra Plasma Rifle (think Ultra Autocannon but plasma).
- Fixed the Community Content Rotary cLPL to match the new cLPL ranges.
- The Capellans sell ECM in their faction store to help their Stealth Armor be functional.
- There's a new Bombard variant, the BMB-022.
- The Torso Cockpit now prevents bleedouts.
- Tandem-Charge ammo shouldn't cause crits anymore. Whoops!
- Several weathers now properly do stability damage (and weren't before). Whoopsie.
- Buncha buncha cruncha of dll updates.
IMPORTANT: v14.1.1 is an "update" update. In this case, clear your Mods folder manually and then run the installer, it'll do the work for you.
IMPORTANT: v14.1.1 is not a save breaking update, your saves are compatible and will work fine.
