    Just wing it.
    Correct. There are better and worse builds, but you really can just use stuff and learn on the fly as long as you have even basic common sense.

    For a newbie though, I actually would recommend that you max frontal armour on all your mechs. It’ll help you a lot.

    For my next play through, I might play it pretty vanilla.
    But not allowed to refit 'Mechs.

    there's a proggie out there to speed up all the movements too - link here:
    https://github.com/ciaphas01/BTAccelerator/releases
    i run it all at 2.0 and it's noticbly speedier and cooler.
    animations are set to occasional as it's nice. sometimes

    more tweaks here:

    I wouldn't touch the animations really they are not so bad, it's the asinine forced delay for audio clips that makes it feel so slow and clunky. As per the bottom link above, go for this:

    go to: steamapps\common\BATTLETECH\BattleTech_Data\Stream ingAssets\data\constants

    and change the audioconstants.json file to have:

    "AttackPreFireDuration" : 0,
    "AttackAfterFireDelay" : 0,
    "AttackAfterFireDuration" : 0,
    "AttackAfterCompletionDuration" : 0
    "audioFadeDuration" : 0,
    And yo get a game that is STOMP STOMP PEW without silly delays.

    no you dont, my bone stock Hunchback 4G does fine with just waddling up to the enemy like a duck and blowing their faces off.

    you can actually beat the game just fine without ever fucking about with the layout of a single mech.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    yes, the Orions are especially notable for being utter heat-pigs, but they're still combat effective with bracket firing.

    Maybe you're just really bad at the game for how much you like to wank about the opposite.

    You can do just fine with stock mechs tbh.

    Just posting this here for refrence, not tried it yet:
    C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\BATTLETECH\Battl etech_Data\StreamingAssets\data\simGameConstants\S imGameConstants

    1)Open SimGameConstants with notepad++

    2)Look for:

    "Travel" : {

    "DefaultSystemTravelTime" : 4,
    "DefaultFuelTime" : 3,
    "FuelStationFuelTime" : 3,
    }

    2)change those 3 values each to 1

    3)Next look for time:

    "Time" : {

    "DayElapseTimeSlow" : 3,
    "DayElapseTimeNormal" : 1.25,
    "DayElapseTimeFast" : 0.5
    },

    change the 3 to a 1, the 1.25 to a .5, and the 0.5 to a .2

    Day 1953
    A armless Quickdraw does a DFA onto one of my Highlanders 733P's and lands on the head.
    Lost a 10/10/9/10 pilot.

    Day 1954
    Another armless Mech, this time a Victor charges another of my Highlanders and Headbutts it in the Head.
    Rip 10/10/10/10 pilot.

    Does that just shorten travel time? If so....nope.

    My modded playthrough is haaaard.

    It’s a variant of the “No Guts No Galaxy” mod I posted above.

    I just had a brutal early fight...my 4 mediums against a Blackjack, Hunchback 4G, Hunchbakck 4N, AND a Catapult C4.

    I now have a 4 month repair time....

    The definition of a bad day at the office.



    This was from the Liberation of Smithson campaign mission. I had no idea how it worked and assumed that if the mobile HQs escaped that I'd fail the mission, so I sprinted them down. That however left me taking a pounding from six mechs and the base turrets. Eventually Behemoth had to eject from the grasshopper but my other cripples finally won by beating the final enemy Dragon to death.

    Doing the same mission a second time was a doddle by comparison.

    Worst luck I have had so far was getting my main in an Orion K double-tapped in the head by a Demolisher. Destroyed a +++ cockpit mod (the main survived so I assume they can't die?).

    ONe of those great battletech moments.
    > first enemy lance all but dead after 'pulling' them into a firezone - just whittling down their Jagermech.
    > reinforcements barrel into scope range.

    > 4 FullAC Jagermechs charge in and start ripping shit up.

    Welp !
