v6.4 (aka the "Come On, More Mechs? Really?" 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 Dragon Fire, a 75 ton Steiner/Kuritan heavy designed by the SLDF. Find it with the Lyrans/Kuritans.
  • NEW MECH: The Crosscut, a 30 ton loggermech used to clear trees. If you want it, you can get it in the Periphery, probably.
  • NEW MECH: The Guillotine, a 70 ton SLDF line heavy that's basically a Grasshopper but cooler looking. Find it with ComStar, the Clans, and a few great houses (Kurita for one)
  • NEW MECH: The Starslayer, a 50 ton pseudo-SLDF but really Steiner jumping medium. Find it with the Steiners.
  • NEW MECH: The Ion, a non-canon 70 ton militarized arena mech. Find it with all five great houses.
  • NEW MECH: The Raptor, a 25 ton light Inner Sphere omnimech. It looks like a space shuttle and you can find it with most great houses.
  • NEW MECH: The Lancelot, a 60 ton super-fast SLDF heavy. Find it with ComStar, Kurita, and rarely the Clans.
  • NEW MECH: The Grendel, a 45 ton Clan fast response scout. Find it with the Clans.
  • Added Retrainer (shift-click on your pilot's skills tab when you have Training Module 2 to retrain that pilot, it costs some money so come with cash)
  • Gauss Rifle stab reduced, it was a little too high
  • MG crit reduced (Array/HMG/LMG unchanged), it was too easy to cheese with MGs
  • Unique mechs for Victoria and Kamea added back to the Arano FP chain
  • MissionControl updated to 1.1.2
  • Weight limit argo upgrades unlocked to only require MechBay 3, not Expanded Drop 3.
  • New pilot, Aether, representing team member BlueWinds
  • Grayson Carlyle event disabled, since he's dead in 65 and shouldn't be poaching your pilots.
  • Smoke animation changed to be less seizure inducing.
  • MechBay 5 works properlike now.

IMPORTANT: v6.4 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.
