Lot of mechs are still listed incorrectly. Why are you typing these by hand? It should be a database output...



TYPO --------------> CORRECT
GRF-E --------------> GRF-1E
UZL-BL -------------> UZL-BE
TBT-LDG -----------> TBT-LG
ACH-SD -------------> ACH-SH
BLR-HS -------------> BLR-1GHE
FNR-5S -------------> FNR-5(S)
KFX-P ---------------> KFX-PR
HMN-PK ------------> HMN-PA
TDR-TD ------------> TDR-5S-T
ZEU-SKO -----------> ZEU-SK
SHC-MS ------------> SHC-MI
SHC- PRIME ------> SHC-PRIME



Why should we believe that the mechs are even listed in the correct divisions, if their names aren't hand-typed correctly? Please have somebody write a script to produce this list automatically using the source data.

Nice finds Tarogato. It's amazing that you find the time to notice these details, but PGI doesn't.

Maybe they should consider hiring you. If not for MWO, then at least the potential MWO2 of the future.

FNR-5S -------------> this mech literally does not exist (remove it)



Well I can't disagree more. PGI have created their own mechs in the past and its totally fine for them to do so. Beside, their hard point system is mostly not consistent with the table top game that doesn't have such constraints ... but was rather inspired as a game mechanic from a previous Mechwarrior title (don't remember which one right now).

I feel like they may call mechs whatever they want when it comes to the variants of a chassis at least, granted they somewhat respect the purpose of those they chose to bring in from the table top.

Down the road a variant is what it is ... a variant... someone can literally make those up if they wish ... it might just not be considered "cannon".

Dude he means it's not even a variant in MWO not that it isn't a lore mech [Redacted]. It's another typo.

Thanks, I forgot PGI also listed special variants. So it's a typo, not a removal, lol.

What a load of [Redacted]. I've never seen a more [Redacted] dev team. The amount of [Redacted] given just shows.
PS [Redacted] the mods.
