Is there an updated AtB document
« on: 04 May 2024, 16:27:01 »
While I understand that many people use the random company generator I still like to make units by hand, often with Field Manual: Mercenaries revised. I was wondering if anyone had made an updated ability table from the Official AtB TT Rules document that includes some of the new Mechwarrior abilities. Failing that does anyone know of any other random way of assigning abilities to pilots?

There isn't. The writers of the documents have long since left.

You could build a unit using Campaign Ops and then input them.

New Units and RAT's aren't added until after the 2 month release moratorium is passed.

MekHQ already has random abilities built-in to its personnel generation, with an adjustable chance based on the personnel's experience rating.

What I typically do is build a unit by hand, and add them to the roster by using MekHQ's randomised personnel generator until I hit one that has the same experience rating (which will also automatically include randomised qualities like name, age, planet of origin, bonus skills, and special abilities).

I added a feature the other day that might help with this. It won't be available until 49.20 launches (near the end of the month), but once 49.20 is out if you go to the bulk hire dialogue (while in GM mode) you can specify the experience level you want your new hires to have.

I have a personal version of it I update for myself with all the new SPAs and etc, let me have a dig around my files and I'll see about posting it so people can have an optional ruleset for it. Generally speaking though if you compare the bonuses to the existing stuff it's not hard to work out the costs. I might have a copy of my generator laying around with them all in as well.
