Weird how we're traversing the massive Inner Sphere and yet so many pilots look exactly the same, even on opposite ends of the sphere! :P

I've been working on other things lately so this probably won't get updated anytime soon unless a DLC/Patch completely breaks it and I have to remake it.
I do still take requests though, just send me a DM on nexus and I'll get to it when I can.

All new pilots appear in hiring halls throughout the game, but if you don't want to wait or hunt around for your favorite portrait with some randomized voice.
I highly recommend using the Pilot Overhaul mod, it's being kept up to date and adds a ton of awesome features to the pilots. It will also pick up on all the portraits added by this mod :)
While we wait for Pilot Overhaul to update, or if you don't want all the extra features of PO, Fake ID is functional again although it doesn't filter out just the portraits like PO does so you see ALL "portraits" including company logos


Current release:
134 female pilots
63 male pilots
52 generic (although most of these have male voices)

Battletech Edition:
140 Pilots using portraits pulled from HBS's Battletech game files.
32 Female
88 Male
20 Generic

Maleister Pack:
Adds in 57 new recruitable pilots, the portraits were sent in to me by Maleister.
If they decide to send more my way this may see an update in the future :)

MonkeyJames Pack:
Adds in 147 new recruitable pilots, compliments of MonkeyJames.
May see additions in the future, unsure at this time.

Mojomania Pack:
A requested pack of 24 pilots provided by Mojomania. May have more added later, unsure at this time.

Halo Themed Pack:
Adds in 34 new recruitable pilots, the portraits were sent in to me by MidAirMamba.
If they decide to send more my way this may see an update in the future :)

After enough requests and some prodding from friends I've made a Ko-Fi, I'll never ask anyone to send me anything but if you really want to you can do so here
