Seems like a big update is upon us!

Source

A few interesting ones:
  • Lethality - when enabled, MechWarriors that are disabled in combat will always be killed.
  • 'Mech Destruction - when enabled, 'Mechs disabled from Center Torso destruction are permanently lost. This setting is intended for veterans and those seeking a significant challenge.
  • No Rare Salvage - when enabled, + and ++ items are no longer generated as salvage results (but remain purchasable in stores).
  • MechWarrior Progression - adjust the amount of experience that MechWarriors gain after each mission.
  • Ironman Mode. Your campaign is limited to a single save game slot that automatically updates as you progress. Run out of funds or fail a Priority Mission and it's game over!

Tried out the game and wondered why I'm not seeing any changes. Turns out I needed to turn on my GoG launcher for it to update the game. Duh!! smile
8.8+ GB to go.

I’ve never seen a disabled pilot that wasn’t killed.
I don’t see mention of pulse weapons, gauss or DHS being added for purchase or salvage.

Not even sure if mine updated. I verified the file via steam, says aok.

Not seeing any change in graphics choices for example.

I've been lucky then! I've had up to 95 days, but those were straight up injuries, not catastrophic headshots.

I've had 2 pilots killed. One was from wounds sustained, the other was a headshot.

Might be a bit of RNG when it comes to dead/injured after max hit count?

None of my "incapacitated" mechwarriors have lived.

KIA, hamburger, cockpit chowder, mechanized mince-meat.

Now Nix, he is INVINCIBLE! In game only of course. 4 months + in the medbays is the record I think.

I have no idea how mods work, but it seems it's a lot of text based stuff....So.... rare weapons are possibly within reach with a little knowledge and a text editor.

I am seriously considering not finishing this current campaign (only the Comodir mission left I think) and just starting a new Ironman campaign....Considering...

I would, however, like to see some type of recognition/rewards for folks who "tough it out" vs someone who just "games the game". Really hard to do that though, with the internet full of "gamers" competing to finish first, or fastest. BY rewards I mean maybe a few more LosTech goodies, a much cuter ships engineer (or at least a semi-attractive non-PC female) hahaha ...OH and maybe a way to fit a decent Mech for Her Wannabe Majesty when you get stuck with her in your lance.

Since I had not a CLUE how to play, my last Mech Warrior experience being MW3 or 4 at the turn of the century, I started out looking at a few early sites, some had great general info and most soon became the usual "step by step, how to 'win'" crap that permeates our lives now. I have enjoyed this game too much so far to even consider that route.

I just quit looking weeks ago and, once I "cheated" ( re-do for out of time) on a campaign mission I then felt it was easier to keep re-starting that hooribad, bugged, 5 skull-pumpkin mission from hell I ran into. (BTW, still chuckling at all the Learn to Play advice I received, I have more hours playing this than I care to admit and have been studying military use of terrain since I graduated from DC comics when I was about eight or nine years old). That mission was NOT normal.

BTW, what happens to your lance mates and their mechs when you eject them? Seriously was considered ejecting everybody but me in that Hell Mission, finally beat it, but not happily, gamed it, didn't really beat it. Prior to that mission I had NEVER left a living/functional enemy mech or vehicle in a mission. It's always been "Stay put, the bad guys are all dead, will pick up where you are at".

BTW, for all my whining, this is still a top shelf new game IMHO.

Some very satisfying kills for a video game.

They Blow Up Real Good! biggrin

Would like to see a multi-lance level tactical progression, as this will become boring without tons of story content.

It does need more campaigns and stories. I got tired of playing for the sake of playing. Thought it would be fun to play to find the lost tech, but it remains lost to me! I have no idea why they wouldn’t have those in the game properly but only sourced in the one mission. Unless it’s a teaser about upcoming dlc?
The wannabe does get something nice later in the story.

IIRC when you eject the mech takes a critcial hit to the head (loses all internal damage there), and your pilot is out of pilot from there on out.

What do you mean by "tough it out"? You mean for people who play Ironman mode? I admit that would be cool and an incentive to be playing that mode.

I guess that's taking a jab at me and RK's advice regarding your mission? Next time, probably nice if you'd say you were just ranting and didn't want or need any help or advice since you're already an expert.

Yeah, I was hoping late game would allow me to field maybe 2 lances. No such luck.

If I came across that way, I promise you that wasn’t my intent. It’s hard to know how far someone is in the game and if they’ve figured out what we all do at some point. Just trying to be helpful.

No big deal guys, just venting a bit.

Lots of RL bad news about other folks lately.

Venting by saying you LOL at suggestions and advice offered? Like RK, I was just trying to be helpful, suggest other ways that the mission may be tackled, obviously not knowing your history or what you've tried already in-game. I guess I'll just have to make a mental note that you don't need any help.

From the little I have played, I am seeing even MORE sniper-like head shots than before.

More than once I've 2 head shots to myself or lance mates. All have the +3 cockpits or I might have lost one or more of my best.

If it was just the Elite bad guys doing it I could live with it. Just plain dumb that it is happening frequently with the lower skilled bad guys.
