v6.2 (aka the "Mechs And Auras!" release) has been released to the installer. This comes with a fairly small list of changes, but there's a little bit of new stuff in there.

  • NEW MECH: The Wraith, a 55 ton hyper mobile medium pulseboat. Find it with the Mariks.
  • NEW MECH: The Prometheus, a 75 ton frankenmech. Find it with locals and mercenaries.
  • NEW MECH: The Swordsman, a 40 ton Age of War Davion trooper mech. Find it with the Davions and locals.
  • NEW MECH: The Razorback, a 30 ton Steiner/Davion trooper light that neither excels or suffers. Find it with Lyrans/Davions.
  • NEW MECH: The Phantom, a 40 ton clan superfast medium. Find it with the Clans.
  • NEW MECH: The Hecatoncheires, a non-canon 65 ton e-war heavy. Find it with the Mariks, ComStar, and the Steiners.
  • Updated Escorts with a few minor fixes.
  • Tweaked Arano Campaign FP difficulty in early missions.
  • HVAC jam chance was reduced
  • Panic System was updated
  • Removed Bribes from reward crates
  • C3 Slaves and all ECM systems are now area of effect. C3 slaves give targeting bonuses against enemies in the radius, ECM protects allies in the radius.
  • Test Drive contracts are now randomized, to a degree. Never know what you'll get!

IMPORTANT: v6.2 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.
