No more custom refits?

Is this still a thing or was it culled? Will kinda determine my initial equipment once I get my unit going.

The customization rule is still a gray area. At one time your right, we weren't allowed any customization's at all, then the military hardware broker implemented custom made 'Mechs, then the board crashed and we weren't allowed again but now I 'think' customization maybe allowed because the MRBC has this available for purchase on the MHB page:

  • Refit Module (A) (Standard IS Tech) REF-A5 1 1 500,000

and another one for clans but not available for purchase;

  • Refit Module (B) (Clan, WoB, Experimental Tech) REF-B10 1 1 1,000,000.

And that's how we used to customize them in the past.

And we are allowed to build a 'Mech from the ground up evidenced by the Design Submission Forum and the Approved BTM designs, soooooo . . . what's the deal with making a few minor changes?

But Coyote, your only allowed to have one custom Unit ('Mech, Vehicle, ASF) per Player Character.

Yeah that was the idea. My character was born, raised, and got his fangs out in the Taurian frontier, so I was going to "upgrade" an old SHD-2H Shadow Hawk for him.

Customization of military hardware is still in discussion by the Staff. Other more pressing issues came up and we tabled that discussion at that time. We will revisit it in the near future and announce any changes to the community in general.
