Editing lots of things:
Well, this is not a cheat proper but it helps. Thing is you can edit some of
the stats in game easily enough. You have to go to your installed game and
enter in BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\data\ (in my case the complete path
is C:\GOG Games\BATTLETECH\BattleTech_Data\StreamingAssets\data\pilot but
dunno if this can be different in some cases).
Inside that last data directory you can see a lot of archives named .json.
Well, you can open any of them just using texteditor (notepad works) and
modify anything there.
For example, if you open "pilots.json" you can change the initial xp of your
first pilots (Glitch,Medusa,Dekker and Behemoth), or even Kamea (although I
don´t recommend mess with Kamea, or npcs or generic).
In the same line you can get a ton of money.
Just, in game, buy as much smalllasers as you can, save, exit game, come to
and now in weapons you may change the smalllaser value for 1000000cb
and once you go back to game you can sell them for about 1000000 each.
You can mess with other things in this data directory.
I for example changed armour values for vehicles, lowering them so you can
oneshot them no matter the heavy they are. Same for turrets. You can change
the Mech stats too but remember, any change you do to one type of Mech, your
enemies will have them too. For example if you change Medium lasers in one
for +++ versions in a Spider, every Spider you face will have those lasers,
so be careful.
As I said, feel free to make experiments.
And of course and very important, save copies of any .json archive before
