MW5 Editor Hotfix #01

MechWarrior 5 Mercenaries Editor Hot-Fix Patch Notes

Greetings Mercenaries,

With the recent release of the v2 Mod Editor on the 23rd, a few critical issues and areas of improvement were identified as the Modding Community dug into the new changes. As a result, we are planning to release a hot-fix to cover the lion's share of these items on Monday, March 30th. Please note that this release could be subject to delay, as we are continuing to test the changes outlined in the notes below and may defer this release if any critical issues are identified.

This hot-fix applies only to the Mod Editor, and will not require an update to the game itself.

As before, if you are sitting on any modified versions of source game assets (that is, you've modified game assets directly that were not 'Saved To Mod' using the v2 framework), prior to the release of this update we strongly recommend that all Mod makers disable the Epic Games Launcher auto-update feature for the MechWarrior 5 Mod Editor and back-up any source assets that have been modified (in their pre-cooked form!). We cannot stress enough how important this is, as any modifications you’ve made to existing game content is likely to be overwritten by this update.

Along with this update we have also added three new entries to the Mod Editor Guide. The updated version of that guide can be found here.
