v15.1.2 (aka the "Some Minor Fixes and a Spider" patch) has been released to the installer. This is a small bug-fixing patch that also includes a new, highly requested, feature:

NEW MECH: The Tarantula, a 25 ton *quad* with a ton of jumpjets and speed, has scuttled into play. It's pretty cute, go get one! Most major factions field the Tarantula. However, it is also for sale on Stewart, in the FWL.

NEW START: QUAD START IS HERE! With the advent of the Tarantula, we finally have a light mech for the quad start to be a thing. You're guaranteed 4 quads, a bug, an APC, and some BA. Enjoy!

UPDATED WEAPON: The Bomb Bay weapons, found on the Screamer LAM, have been updated. They do more damage/stab now. However, they're also removeable now. They can only be equipped on LAMs though, as makes sense since only LAMs can deploy bombs in combat. You can also salvage them if you're so inclined.

COMMUNITY CONTENT: A new FASCAM InfernoAugmented ammo has been added to Mack's Dustball and a new Nightstar has been added.

  • Convoys still getting stuck has possibly been fixed. We'll try this fix out for now.
  • taintedloki's pilot skill has been adjusted to be a -1 penalty instead of a -2 penalty.
  • Several Atlases gained a CT slot.
  • Added a new emblem for Van Zant, Tex's planet from Tex Talks BattleTech.
  • There is now text on the mission ending screen that indicates if a pilot was captured after an ejection. If you miss it now, you're blind and I can't help you.

IMPORTANT: v15.1.2 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: v15.1.2 is not a save breaking update, your saves are compatible and will work fine.
