About this mod

Any weapon in any Slot of the same type, they are now ballistic, laser and missile slots. Second version with a less drastic change, restricts slots to only the next size up. *** Read description for more info***

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Changelogs
NO LONGER changes the weapons to small. All the weapons Are NOW VANILLA.  And it is now possible to make MWO builds, sort of. Tonnage etc is still the same so builds are not totally insane, it's basically now a ballistic slot will allow any Ballistic weapon for e.g. as long as you have the tonnage.

Installation Instructions

To install

1. Unzip folder to your MW5Mercs\Mods folder (if you don't have a mod folder then create it)
2. Start Game
3. Select "Mods" from main menu and activate 
4. You should see Mod listed as available.
5. Tick the box
6. Apply
7. Restart game.


Example of the file structure  \MW5Mercs\Mods\Loadouts\Paks     for my mod, take extra care the unzipping doesn't create another folder making it look like this   \MW5Mercs\Mods\Loadouts\Loadouts\Paks


This will NOT conflict with other weapon mods.

All other mods should work just fine as long as they dont change the Slots on Mechs.




Load Outs Reinvented (Optional) Use Instead of original file

The basic changes here are pretty simple. Any ballistics slots that used more than 4 slots have been reduced to 4 slots, so you have more free slots, but the tonnage required remains the same. The other weapons have been left pretty much as they were, only difference been small slots will now only accept up to medium weapons. 

This should balance the loadouts a little better until there is facility in the editor to allow the changes I really want to make. 

Ballistics changes
