    Just a simple question to understand this mod.

    Did you use the Flashpoint mechanics to create your own mini-campaign?

      Yes, in that Flashpoints are mini-campaigns to begin with. This is a FP with the normal FP spawn odds and 180 day spawn timer like all the others. It does have a requirement of needing Black Market access to spawn, similar to how Alliance FPs need the alliance states to spawn. Consider this that kind of FP, as those are close in total missions and difficulty. This one just goes a bit farther with 5 missions vs 4.

      This is very good. This could open the door to a player's custom campaigns that we could share. How did you create it? I would love to create one of my own and share it with everyone to play in the "normal" 3025 campaign.

      Amechwarrior has made a 'how-to' for making FPs on the official battletech (paradox) forums in the mod section.

      I made this after making this FP. The OP is complete, but the second post with optional advanced stuff is still a WIP.

      Edit: Also, in the FP editor, there is a length setting of "Campaign" available, so you could make a 10 mission campaign. However, as HBS_Kiva mentioned, this isn't always a good idea as if you fail one mission of a FP all progress is lost unlike the normal story campaign. You could make a lot of branches for pass/fail at every step, but that quickly gets overwhelming and redundant.

      Incredible, thanks! I'll tinker with it as I'm kind of incompetent when trying to make my own mods.

      If you have an easy repetitive task that needs an extra hand, I offer my help as I want to learn how to do this kind of stuff.

      Thanks again!

    Will this be updated for 1.5?

      It should work with 1.5.0 and 1.5.1. Is there any issues once you've injected ModTek for 1.5+?

      Think i need to try this in vanilla, tried with the latest versions of Battletech 3025 Extended Mod, did not work.

      EDIT: Installed these first, then the Extended mod and the Community Asset bundle. Now it seems to work, at least the game didn't show the error message about not loading files.

      Thanks! What were your most and least favorite parts?

      I want to plan another for Urban Warfare, but HBS needs to let us know something about it first.

    I saw your thread over on the Paradox forums - congratulations on this amazing accomplishment.

    And...

    Putting my pedant hat on, I did spot a couple of typos in the Title Card image:
    "They want to use your companies Black Market access as a trojan horse."
    ->
    "They want to use your company's Black Market access as a Trojan horse"

      Thanks! I tried to correct them all and I think I totally forgot to check the title card text.

      EDIT: Let me know if you find more and I'll roll those in to the next update.
