FoC Real Rescale 1.0

This mod brings the scale (and look) of the space ships and space projectiles closer to the source material. 
It is inspired by past mods for EaW that did similar things but i noted that no such mod had been made for FoC yet, So i decided to fill this gap.

Make SURE you have the 1.1 patch installed for FoC before installing this. Also make sure you rename, move or delete any folders named XML or Scripts from your Data folder as they can cause problems.

How to install: Extract the folders into your FoC folder (Should be C:Program FilesLucasArtsStar Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption) and run the .bat file to play the mod.

How to uninstall: Delete the "RealRescale" folder from your "Mods" folder and delete the .bat file.

Changes:

-Almost all space units rescaled. The new scales are in most cases almost to-the-meter, With some notable exceptions. There should be little-to-no problems with moving the ships in the maps.
-Most space projectiles rescaled and/or changed to more movie/source material accurate ones.
-Engine glows rescaled for the new scales. Some have had their colors corrected to more movie accurate ones.
-Flak explosions added to most space lasers. They should cause no performance problems. The flak explosions are based off of EP4-6. They also have sounds.
-Rescaled a number of effects (Buzz Droids, Fighter Explosions).

No gameplay changes have been made.

Notable Exceptions

A-Wing:

I have gone with the "offical" size of 9.6 meters as the "movie" size of 4.8 meters looks strange in the game engine.

Home One:

In home one's case i have gone with the "movie" size of 3.0-3.8 KMs. Which also happens to be the game's stock scale.

Executor Star Dreadnought:

I had to scale it to the 12.8KM size due to concerns about how the game engine and maps would handle such a big ship.
In the future i hope to rescale the space GC maps to allow for the proper scale to be used.

FoC ships:

Almost all the ships in FoC have not had official specs posted for them yet. So i used the stock scales when possible. For anyone who is interested in what the scales would
(roughly) translate into meters, Here's what i figured:

Intercepter 4: 150 meters
MC30c: 550 meters
Vengance Frigate: 400 meters
Agressor Destroyer: 1400 meters
Kedalbe Battleship: 1450 meters
Crusader Gunship: 200 meters

Please note these scales are unofficial. But when/if official sizes are released i will rescale the ships to them.

To-Do for future versions:

Rescale ground units.
Rescale GC space maps.

Feel free to use any part of this mod. Just give credits.
