AIM is a BattleTech mod that fixes, enhances, and customize your combat experience, such as colored facing rings and targeting lines, tune down roll correction, show distance numbers, or a detailed attack log. The default settings aim to preserve the balance of vanilla game.

This mod does not modify game data. Saves made with this mod on will not be affected by disabling or removing this mod. ALL features can be enabled or disabled individually.
