Optional Mods
NGNG MechCommander Mods (for all standalone versions)

Not recommended to be used in Multi-Player games unless all players have same settings - game will crash because to play Multi-Player all players need the same gamefiles. (Synchronization)

MCG Darkest Hours v5.0 - Visual Range & Weapon Range Rebalance mod v0.1a by RizZ (works for all standalone versions!)
(Optional Weapon Mod v1.0 (by SeanLang & NGNG modding team))*
(Vehicle Rebalance Mod v0.3 (by confused_shelf))*
(Mech Tonnage Fix v1.0 (all to be used single player only!))*
Hint: When you decide to try out these mods, make a copy of your game folder before. Make changes in copied twin folder and use the original one for multi-player. This way your not becoming in danger to mess up your gamefiles for other game features.
