=====================================================DESCRIPTION====================================================
Well basiclly, this mod is to make EF2 a lot more fun to play (and more like EF1)
I for one was extremely disappointed with EF2 after the long wait, this for me, just about justifies me buying EF2. :)

Remember, if you have anything you would like to see in upcoming versions, or if you find any bugs (whether they be
due to the mod or created by Ritual), don't hesitate to get into contact with me, Worf or Tempest by sending us
e-mail (wizgez@hotmail.com, sfiworf@hotmail.com, david.coles.wales@ntlworld.com)

And remember, this mod is completely SERVER-SIDE, which means clients do not have to download anything
