Much of this project’s goal was based around making changes to the game in order to make it feel closer to the BattleTech universe, as such, many of the weapons’ names and descriptions were changed to be more lore-friendly.
A handfull of core mechanics have been manipulated as well greatly increasing ammo capacity to drive home the feeling of being an unstoppable machine of war; furthermore, weapons no longer explode when overcharging.
As is common with a number of hacks that alter gameplay, this hack provides the player the option to start off with more lives at the beginning of the game to put padding on some of the difficulty.
An extremely important feature added by the developers is the fact that environmental hazards no longer damage your mech and only increase your heat instead removing some of the games already overflowing lethality.
