Patch v10.2 - 2021/5/18
v10.2 (aka the "Buttkicking For Goodness!" release) has been released to the installer. This patch is mostly a bug fixing and minor content release.
NEW MECH: The Minsk, a 70 ton Clan mech from the Golden Century, has strode onto the field of honor. Find it with Clan Ghost Bear. Also, remember to always take your copilot hamster with you in the Minsk.
NEW PILOT: Dr. Grant has learned to pilot mechs. And besides, what are mechs but big metal dinosaurs? He also might offer you some work, keep an eye out for it.
FIXED MECHANIC: Support weapons were actually ignoring all evasion which was unintended. Now, they don't ignore all evasion. Instead, they ignore a set amount, you can see their evasion ignore in their descriptions. This was how it was supposed to work all the time, so this is just working properly now.
- We are testing a possible fix for the current melee soft lock issue. This is a temporary fix and is not guaranteed to fix all cases but has been shown to at least be slightly better in testing. Again, this is a *temporary* fix by t-bone and FrostRaptor. A true full-scale fix from KMISSION is still pending. If you have questions or issues, direct them to the BTA Team exclusively since we implemented the fix, do not disturb KMISSION about this for any reason.
- A large raft of weapon changes have happened. Weapons that changed include cLBX, cUAC, cGauss, cFlamer, cPlasma, cArrow, cSSRM, cNarc, cMPL, UAC, SSRM, MG Array, Narc, and Laser AMS.
- A number of support weapons have had the amount of evasion they ignore adjusted as part of the evasion ignore changes.
- Corsairs all assemble together now, like they probably always should have.
- The Whitworth was properly downsized.
- The Osprey OSP-05 was properly scaled.
- Due to some unfortunate behavior from a modeler, the Ballista prefab was changed. It now uses the Marksman's model.
- Some clarification of bonus descriptions took place.
- The Patton/Rommel/Axel tanks now actually use the correct model.
- Changed tank pathing profiles, should improve tank pathing somewhat.
- Starting drop tonnage was increased by 50 tons.
- Vehicle Slot 3/4 now also increase drop tonnage by 50 tons each.
IMPORTANT: v10.2 is an "update" update. Run the installer again to let it just update your files and you're set to go. The installer auto-updates the CAB and injects Modtek for you.
IMPORTANT: v10.2 is not a save breaking update, your saves are compatible and will work fine.
