v6.3 (aka the "Jesus How Many Mechs Are There??" release) has been released to the installer. This comes with a fairly small list of changes, but there's a a good handful of new mechs to account for.

  • NEW MECH: The Kingfisher, a 90 ton super durable zombie Clan omnimech. Find it with the Clans.
  • NEW MECH: The Sunder, a 90 ton Inner Sphere omnimech, famous from its appearance in MW4. Find it with the Dracs/Caps/Davions/Lyrans/Mercs.
  • NEW MECH: The Viking, a 85 ton Inner Sphere missile boat. Find it with ComStar and the FRR.
  • NEW MECH: The Devastator, a 100 ton Inner Sphere death machine. Find it with the Caps/Davions/Lyrans/Mercs.
  • NEW MODEL: The Longbow now has a much nicer model that is far truer to the OG Longbow. Enjoy!
  • The Arano campaign flashpoints are updated to have a nice green color now so you can spot them quicker on the map.
  • PanicSystem's dll updated, no major changes just programming stuff
  • Melee now ignores only 2 evasion instead of four, this is an attempt to cut down on charge spam and is experimental.
  • Charges now do half their prior stab damage, again experimental.
  • A brace of 16 new units have been added that use C3i, find them mostly with ComStar.
  • There's a pair of new mechbay upgrades, Mechbay 4 and Mechbay 5. They're what they sound like. You asked for more slots, we gave it to you.

IMPORTANT: v6.3 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: If you have issues with the installer, see this post (https://discordapp.com/channels/587764595888881670/659490692955111485/725078952665940041) for details on the BTA pre-cache.
