Just wanted to say a big thank you. I tried those gfx settings you guys gave me tonight and I gotta say, the game now runs a lot smoother and looks nicer (ala very high textures/object detail). I also sold 4 of my old mechs and got a Hunchback IIC-A per recommendation too. I like it's high mount points.
shame the ecm variant doesnt get any energy hardpoints - ecm might be an end all or anything but its still pretty amazing for midrange+ could be an ok mech as far as IS goes, provided it isnt med sized
The Cooling Efficiency Penalty from Side Torso destruction has been increased to 40% (from 20%).
Hunchback IIC Design Notes: Jump-sniping, particularly among the Clan forces, has seen a bit of a resurgence lately. While we're not touching the offensive capabilities of these HBK-IIC variants, we do feel that jump-sniping with cockpit-level mounts needs to come with a bit more opportunity for counterplay than they currently do. To that end, we're reducing Torso Yaw for the listed HBK-IIC variants to make them more vulnerable to mobile threats.
