You sure that is the right File? Cause the PDF itself says it is Version 3.0.

The file is labeled correctly, and the author didn't update the inside to say version 3. But you can tell from the change log that the 3.5 content is in this version.

Ah yes, dammit I missed that bit. It is correctly updated at 3.5 though. If there's anything you feel hasn't been explained enough, feel free to let me know here. I don't want to push out another update just for that error, but I'll be glad to do that for other changes.

You might want to cover MekHQ Options after the next dev release.

The auto save function needs explanation? Like just that it exists, or why you would want to?

Does AtB use custom/modded boards?

Not that I've seen.  The AtB uses generated boards.  That said, once you are in the MM Lobby, you can select a specific board.  I like to do that when I am the defender, indicating the defense's familiarity with the terrain.  That catch is there is not always a pre-made board with the exact dimensions of the board from MHQ, so you just need to use your own judgement.

If Peacetime Operating Costs are ON, and also Pay for Personnel Salaries is ON, would I be double-paying Salaries?
