I just want to say how much I appreciate checking of this level.  However, I'm swamped at the moment (real life + paying BT writing) and so haven't been able to get in the update to the RATs I was planning, let alone have the chance to check this over.  So please don't take it amiss if it takes me a month or so to get to this.

Thanks.

Hey no worries. I figured as much. Like I said, I think I have my spreadsheets set up so that I could update the tables myself for you and save you some work... the only catch is verifying which of the above changes is legit or not (for example, because of something outside of the TRO's I missed...  :-\)

And I don't think I'll have caught up from 20 years of updated lore, books, rules, etc. in a month, so I think you're good.  ;) Looking forward to the new stuff you're working on!

Xotl, I just want to echo everyone's thanks for this excellent source of information. It's amazing and I love it. Thanks again, and I hope you'll accept my belated congratulations on your Ph.D. (Was in in proofreading? Data analysis? Sadomasochism?)

Sorry, wasn't specific enough. A post that linked this said there would be tables that actually have the quirks listed with the 'Mechs, which is useful because looking them up on Sarna all the time is a pain and the ones listed there don't have the variable bits specified.

Once the Battlemech Manual came out with an official quirk list for mechs there was no point to keeping my unofficial list, especially since the Manual drew on my quirk work anyways.  So it was removed as of version 10.  There was also a vehicle quirk list, and that hasn't been duplicated yet in official material, but it was quite small.

I've gone through and applied all outstanding reported bugs (and the usual extra stuff on my own end), and so here is what I hope is the final version of the tables.

Of course, I probably screwed something up, and there's always new checks and new canon, so I still expect incremental bug fixes.  But I'm hoping to stabilize this as fast as possible so that people can get to work implementing the tables in various electronic aids: I've asked a bunch of people to wait while I finished fixing everything up, but MegaMek and a few others should hopefully be able to draw on this particular set.

Let me know if you spot anything strange.  Hopefully it's not too onerous and can be fixed quick.  Thanks all, with an especial shoutout to jasonf this time around.

You might want to update your sig block, good sir.  I think that's what throwing some people about the quirks...

Thank you Xotl for your continued support!
I'm just updating Battletech Extended and what I have noticed so far, will update as I progress:

3039 Kurita A units lose the Crab 20 completely and gain the Crab 27, but the Crab 27 isn't represented at all in later Kurita tables, the Kurita 3057 A/B ranked units table instead has Crab 20s and Crab-Cs.  Are the 20s on the Kurita 3057 table meant to be 27s?

Yep, forgot to carry the update forward.  I'll compile a fix list over the next few days, starting with this, thanks.

Also, the updates basically cover the 3050 and 3057 House tables.

Awesome, I had also assumed the Flashman 7Ks disappearance after the 3039 Kurita A units for Kurita was intentional? Just mentioning it as it isn't a small amount of Flashmans.

That's strange: I didn't intend to remove the Flashman from Kurita, only to downgrade them from -8Ks to -7Ks (per 3050U, they had only downgraded models).

I'll double check that.  If they're gone I'll likely add them back.

It was something that occurred in the previous version, they got 8Ks in 3039 but weren't around later, I just assumed it was intended and didn't think to mention when I was working on stuff, I just reminded myself of it while changing to 7Ks.

Just wanted to reiterate your tables bring so much life to the game, thanks again.  It's often a much complimented part of the mod that your tables are included.

Heh, much obliged, but no need.  Maybe if we're both at GenCon one day we can meet up.

New version up with fixed Kuritan Crabs (3039, 3050, 3057) and Kuritan 3057 -7K Flashman (and some minor corrections to old text notes).

I was going to collate things to not clog up your thread but encountered the Marik thing and thought I should let you know before I do Steiner.  Going to eat now but if you give me an hour or 2 I will get Steiner fully checked which is the last thing I need to do, if you don't want to put something out before I may throw another spanner in.

Davion C/D/F rated Thunderbolt TDR-5D has been added but the roll values aren't updated so it's roll overlaps others.
Marik A/B 3057 table looks like it has accidentally turned in to the Davion or Steiner table?

Must have mispasted onto the Marik medium table there.  I also repasted the Davion and Steiner A/B mediums, so I could be sure I hadn't missed a correction when I screwed up the Marik table (and fixed the Thunderbolt issue).  Thanks!

EDIT: version updated.

One last thing, you added the Grasshopper 5J to the Marik 3057 A/B table as the 5H, so there is 2 5Hs, the first should be the 5J.  Thanks again.
