Patch Number:   1.3.400

Greetings MechWarriors,

The improved MechLab is here!

Strongly driven by community feedback, the new MechLab is intended to provide a more intuitive and consistent experience when building and customizing your 'Mechs. Beyond many 'quality of life' improvements, we wanted to ensure that this new MechLab retained the same core functionality as its predecessor. With the implementation of an array of additional fixes and feature improvements since the end of the PTS session, along with the integration of some excellent community feedback, we're excited to officially introduce the revamped MechLab.

The release of the new MechLab comprises the bulk of this patch, but rounding things out we have the addition of an FOV slider and Cockpit Glass toggle to the Settings menu, a slight buff to Clan Autocannons and Clan Ultra Autocannons, fixes for the Invalid 'Mech and partial item redemption issues, tool-tip functionality throughout the client, and the introduction of an itemized redemption window when redeeming any content.

This patch also sees the initial release of the special Resistance 1 Variant 'Mechs for eligible owners of the top-tier Resistance 1 and Resistance 2 Collections (as part of the Irresistible Resistance promotion).

Read on for all the details, and we'll see you on the battlefield!

Change Log

The Improved MechLab

  • New methods of viewing and customizing the loadout of your BattleMechs
  • A more intuitive interface
  • Easier indications of which equipment can go where
  • More detailed information for each item in the MechLab
  • A new Select 'Mech window, featuring the ability to filter by Clan and Inner Sphere 'Mechs
  • Additional features and changes, informed by community feedback

The new Select 'Mech window that you'll see in this release is the same system that was shown during the MechLab PTS session. We know there was a lot of feedback about this change in particular, and future adjustments to the new Select 'Mech window are being evaluated.

The Expanded view allows you to view and customize nearly all aspects of your 'Mech loadout in a single screen, without having to view by individual components.

  • To use the Expanded view, select it from the Layout dropdown inside the Warehouse window
    • Please note that the Expanded view of MechLab requires a minimum resolution of 1600x900
