Changing Starting Mechs



To change starting mechs you need to go to Steam folder:

...common\BATTLETECH\BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\data\itemCollections

Open files "itemCollection_Mechs_Starting_0" 1,2,3 and 4 with notepad or alike and add mechs you want there.

List of mechs you can get in nearby folder /Mechs, you shall see things like "mechdef_urbanmech_UM-R90" there, that's what you need to add in line.

Within the file you will see lines like:

mechdef_wolverine_WVR-6K,Mech,1,2

Make sure yours have all the commas and no spaces. 1,2 or else numbers mean spawn chance? I guess. I keep them all on 1,1. Don't forget about word "Mech" too, add it to your line.

If you made a mistake, new game will be on endless loading. Come back and check if you missed a comma or made a spelling mistake or something.
