On the Map of the Inner Sphere I see icons indicating a 'Rare Mech available' in a system.

I travel to that system. There's a purple notification on the main console telling me 'Rare Mech (name) is available'.

I click on the purple notification, which takes me to the market ... but that rare Mech is not available.
I manually go to the market... but that rare Mech is not available.

Where did the rare Mechs go? Why am I still notified that they're available when they're not?

Once only I saw the rare mech, but insufficient c-bills, so I left to gain some c-bills then return but the rare mech is no more. I think somebody bought it :(.

In all honesty I think it is a bug, because if the notification still exists/persist than the rare mech must be available, else the notification should have changed to "You're too late, someone else bought it." PGI Dev should edit this to the program.

oh sorry, that's my bad, I had taken the mech for a test drive, Posted Image

came across this a few times, same can be said about some missions, arrive to planet and no contract available, go back to system and the mission is no longer there.

one thing I do know, if you leave far enough, sales change, first was thought it was a date thing, like it changes after so many days, but it's not, if you go far enough away, then return, everything changed, sometimes it's just a couple jumps into another system then back

I read somewhere that this is the case for every 5-jumps-jump.

"Rare" mechs are simply regular mechs that are not severely damaged and basically pristine in the Shop right?

Or rare variants. But yes, mostly just pristine normal mechs.

Usually pristine but also they have 1 or 2 dot equipment.

It's just so much cheaper to buy a normal one for a quarter the cost and just fix it yourself. 2mill vs. 8mill...

Rare mechs can also be starleague variants like the Kintaro-19 or the King Crab -000b.

I bought both of those and since sold them. What made them special?

Both have Ferrofibrous-Armour, the Crab has DHS and Artemis on the LRM, the Kintaro has a NARC.

I've also seen where it will saw there are "Hireable pilots in this system", then you go to the Barracks and no one is there. Posted Image

They were all bought and killed is why. As for the Kintaro with the Narc..might have to find one of those again then.

Yesterday saw a RARE sale, Grasshopper 5H pristine nearly 7 mils cbills but bought the 2nd GRH-5H damaged selling nearly 5 mils, bought it, repair all, mod max armor, remove jumpjets, add heatsinks, costs 140k cbills, good deal. Penalty is wait some 60 days, 1 MP, 5HS. Still is good deal if not need to use the mech urgently.
