About this mod

The intention of this mod is to simulate the reemerging of LosTech due to the Helm Memory Core discovery.
For this purpose the mod adds mech and vehicle versions refit with LosTech equipment.
For balance reasions the core game lance compositions have been adjusted.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
- Adds Mech and vehicles versions refit with a varying degree of Star League equipment for all units in the game. Now also incorporates SolahmaJoes fantastic HotD mod along with LosTech versions of his original designs.

Note: This does not add new mechs but makes the existing models spawn with upgraded equipment. Since mechparts are based on Mechdefinitions rather
than chassis definitions I recommend the additional usage of Morphyums Adjusted Mech Assembly mod.

- Adds or unlocks ( Urbie! ) a couple of Mechs based on existing versions.

Note: I recommend using Janxious Mech and Vehicle Resizer mod to resize the Marauder models as originally suggested by SolahmaJoe. I offer his 0.5.0 version including the Marauder settings under additional files.
I also offer a AddOn to Bloodydoves Annihilator mod. His base mod is required for the AddOn to work.


- Redefines lance and AI roles of ingame mechs.
Implements a maximum of 1 LosTech unit per lance.
Some roles are just poorly defined in the core game and make for unchallenging encounters. E.g. Victors being treated as tanks or Banshees as assassins. Those have been adjusted to create more challenging encounters since the game will now spawn more dangerous mechs while benching the awfull ones more often.
Also overhauled fire, support, cavalry and scout lacnes to contain more defined mech selections e.g. made all cavalry lance mechs jump capable and increased the number of indirect fire units in support lances.


- Installation (requires ModTek) : simply unzip the content of the downloaded file archive into your Mods folder. This mod is intended to be used with the latest HBS BattleTech release including Flashpoints. I reccomend the additional installation of cFixes, a community driven mod with general fixes to current HBS releases.

- Credits:
I'd like to credit Janxious for maintaining the ModTek and BTML files as
well as the MechResizer mod. His work allows for structured modding
without overwriting the base game files, making all this possible in the
first place.
Another shout out to JustinKaseToo on who's original work I based some of my upgraded designs on.
A HUGE thank you to SolahmaJoe for allowing me to incorporate his HotD mod.
Another shoutout to Bloodydove for allowing me to build up on his Annihilator mod.

Cheers,
Dr. Banzai
