  7. Our modpack has been updated; please update now. The following changes have been made: Updated: @16aa Fixed lots of our magazines being weightless (sorry) L85 and its variants now have working Emags (little magazine window that lets you see the first 10 or so bullets) - thanks to Morris, da12thMonkey and Tigg People will now spawn with randomised headgear The Foxhound's driver has a little more freedom of head movement Excorcised Zeus's fleas Added 152s to more units - JHC IC, Signallers, Platoon medics Platoon IC slots now have access to a couple of HuntIR rounds and a monitor Slightly increased cargo carrying capacity of the Foxhound and added useful gubbins to it, which should actually appear now Slightly increased the value of the 16AA units so that enemies will use some of their more expensive toys against us Size of update: ~10MB. Known issues: @sthud has a pop-up error. I'm investigating a replacement for it, but have hit some slight snags. Foxhound can only carry one unconscious person, and they have to go in the top-right cover seat.
  8. Our modpack has been updated; please update now. The following changes have been made: Updated: @16aa Quite a bit. I'll fill this in tomorrow afternoon. Size of update: ~6MB.
