Realistic Rebalancing Mod for Crossfire
for Jagged Alliance: Crossfire v1.01

This mod adds a lot of improvements and bugfixes to the game without changing the base gameplay, much like a Community Patch. All weapons have been reworked to be more realistic and have also been perfectly balanced. Armor penetration of all projectiles has been reworked. i took extra care to make sure the weapon changes dont affect gameplay in any negative way. The ACTUAL ACCURACY of each gun has been added to the weapon description, among other useful info (weapon class, restrictions). The guard mode works more reliably, the accuracy penalty for standing/crouching stance has been reduced and mercs can get more levelups before they reach the levelcap. Traders have better variety of weapons and gear available and 18 new weapons have been added to the campaign (MGL-105, SW Model 66, AK-74M, G3SG1, SCAR-L, PP-2000, Glock 21...). Many errors have been corrected. (eg Ak47 is using 7.62mm instead of 5.45mm ammo). AI and Stealth mechanics have been noticably improved.

The Readme file says:

Instructions:
-copy and paste the "configs" and "interface" folders to "Jagged Alliance Crossfire / bin_win32"

So for Steam the path would be: "Steam / SteamApps / common / Jagged Alliance Crossfire / bin_win32"
This mod can be deactivated without a trace. simply rename/delete the two folders. This mod can not damage your game installation. There is no need to re-install the game. ever.
