Has anyone put one of these together in HMA?
If so, would you please upload your file so I can see how you put it together?

Thank you!

Where is a command Overlord being mentioned?
What details are given?

I would simply replace part of the Cargo with Quarters for the Officers and rooms for the HQ.

EDIT: found it, the fluff for the "upgraded Version" of the Overlord from the TRO 3057 has´this:
"Yet another variant reduces the 'Mech complement by one lance and uses the additional space for command and control facilities. These valuable craft are called Command-Overlords and often provide a decisive edge in planetary assaults. However, Command-Overlords are extremely rare. Most are owned by the Successor States, although Wolf's Dragoons possess a few as well."

this is my take:
I reduced the two cargo holds from 18 to 16 mechs each, then I added 5 Staff-officers of 10 tons, and 30 staff officers of 7 tons, raised the number of life-boats(staff-officers are valuable), added a HPG, added a HQ of 100 tons and finaly raised the amount of spare-parts, mainly that is spare-parts for the HQ and the HPG. I also adjusted the amount of food to the higher number of ppl.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==Overview:==
     The Overlord is the largest 'Mech carrier in service with the Successor
States. The standard version carries a complete 'Mech battalion, complete with
aerospace support, making it one of the sights most feared by ground forces.
The Clan variant is the only DropShip that carries a larger 'Mech cargo than
the Inner Sphere Overlord.
     The massive spheroid Overlord is employed primarily in large-scale
assault missions. It usually approaches the target world behind a screen of
fighters and attack DropShips. The Overlord can deploy its BattleMech cargo on
the ground, in high atmosphere, or in space. The last is the preferred option,
as it limits the Overlord's exposure to combat. The craft is especially
vulnerable in the atmosphere, where its spheroid shape is a major
disadvantage. However, when a secure landing zone can be maintained, Overlords
often land to reduce the risks to their BattleMech cargoes. The vessels often
serve as command centers and supply bases in these instances.
     Observers estimate some 1,900 individual Overlords, representing
two-dozen design variants, exist. The most common variant is the Overlord-One,
which features a single huge 'Mech bay that can accommodate 36 BattleMechs on
six decks. A seventh deck contains cubicles for an aerospace squadron. A
series of catwalks that run from the bay's central support column provides
access to these decks and also contains the main power systems, coolant lines,
and a series of cargo and personnel elevators.
     Another common variant of the Overlord replaces the lower two 'Mech decks
with garages for a company of vehicles. Yet another variant reduces the 'Mech
complement by one lance and uses the additional space for command and control
facilities. These valuable craft are called Command-Overlords and often
provide a decisive edge in planetary assaults. However, Command-Overlords are
extremely rare. Most are owned by the Successor States, although Wolf's
Dragoons possess a few as well.
     The Shipil Company, which also produces the new Claymore design, has
recently begun refitting existing Overlords with new technology, primarily
advanced weapons systems. The most radical upgrade involves the vessel's nose,
where the four autocannons, two lasers and two PPCs have been replaced with a
pair of ER PPCs and a trio of Gauss rifles. This modification simultaneously
reduces the Overlords total number of systems and greatly improves the craft's
long-range firepower. The energy weapons mounted in the original design's side
and aft bays have been replaced with either pulse or extended-range systems
for greater accuracy and range as well.
        Unfortunately, many of these new weapons generate large amounts of
heat, and the design of the original Overlord precludes the enhancement of its
coolant system. As a result, Shipil's refitted Overlord boasts considerable
firepower, but is unable to use it effectively.

a version without the HPG would cost only about 400.000.000 C-Bills

Question: is a staff of 5+30 realistic? what about the mobile HQ weight of 100 tons?
