This version only adds hammer replacement option in the mod manager as a response to many feedbacks from users that don't like pistol in the first weapon...
What this mod does?
This SP mod makes game longer and gives you opportunity to taste all bitterness of truly uprising such as lack of valuables or countering enemy superiority in numbers and equipment.
It is more difficult to liberate sectors, get salvage, freed hostages etc.
Game patched to v1.0.2

- Guerrilla reiforcements modified. You can meet first volunteers around 15 morale points but if you raise support of citizens to 100, you can overwhelm EDF in some situations.
- Accessibility of key upgrades modified. For example now you have to use grinder with explosive ammunition because rocket launcher will be unlocked in later game stage. But this fact won't do grinder useless then, it has same damage but much faster rate fo fire. Disadvatage is absence of heat seeking. The whole game is carried in this spirit of compromises.
- Sniper rifle has smaller magazine and is much less accurate, if you shoot without scoping.
- Heavy tank is slighly tougher, its projectile has very high damage against vehicles and has small explosion.
- Medium tank is slightly weaker and less accurate, its projectile has low damage against vehicles but has big area of effect lethal for infantry and better against buildings.
- Game is livelier. There are more people on Mars, more EDF, guerrilla members and civilians.
- Marauder squads are huge threat. They have high amount of members and have better weapons.
- Don't try to face EDF on open areas. Buildings and covers are more important. Mountains are nessesary place to hide agains heavy armors.

- Cost of upgrades increased so you have to think, which one you really need.
- MGs modified, they're less accurate but overheating tendency decreased too. Cooling of overheated MG takes much more longer.

- Ammunition for guerrilla weapons is easy to obtain (ammo boxes), for hi-tech EDF weapons it is quite difficult (droped by dead soldiers).
- Alerts changes. You can evade to EDF atention only during yellow alert. To delete orange or red alert levels you have to find safehouse.
- Heavy weapons such as tank turrets or airship weaponry have decreased fire rate and increased spread. This gives player more possibilities to evade or hide agains heavy regiments.

- You can carry three times more amount of ammo for bullet weapons (pistol, assault rifle...) and two times more for others.
- You can carry very high amount of ammunition for hi tech EDF weapons such as rail driver and gauss rifle but getting it is quite difficult.
- Tweaked last mission. Getting top of the mountain is long and there're many guerrilla members and marauders supporting you during this effort. EDF has air support and Roth has strong guards.
- Attack on guerrilla safehouse in Badland is much heavier. You'll need good managing of resources to complete this important mission.
