Unreal is a highly enjoyable classic FPS with some rough edges. Unreal Evolution seeks to address these and bring a high quality golden age game to the next level. Expect tighter overall design. If you've played my critically-acclaimed 'GMDX' mod for Deus Ex, you know what to expect: Unreal Evolution is intended to enhance the overall experience yet retain the original spirit and concepts: Unreal but better.

Enhances Unreal Singleplayer and the Return to Na Pali Expansion Pack. Multiplayer is not Supported.


Polished, Visceral Weapon Design with Faithful Execution
{
    1: Polished, highly refined weaponry. All weapon bugs squashed;
    2: Considerably overhauled effects: gore effects, impact effects, projectile effects, recoil effects, muzzle flash and much more;
    3: New weapon upgrade modules to customise Unreal weaponry to your liking, increase replayability, and make thorough exploration worthwhile;
    4: New input and weapon behaviour: Press "2" to manually reload the automag. Headshots with any weapon deal minor bonus damage + more;
    5: Enhanced satisfying audio design;
}

Expanded Artificial Intelligence 
{
     1. New AI attacks & tactics for almost all enemy types; Even tentacles have more diverse behaviour.
     2: All new enemy types add meaningful diversity to Unreal's combat;
     3: 227 damage and projectile speed scaling is removed. Instead a more engaging approach is taken: 
     Enemies are encountered in slight higher frequency on higher difficulty modes, and enemies are smarter.
}

Enhanced Level Design and Graphics
{
    1. Subtly Improved art direction. Faithful upgrades;
    2. New challenges, locations and secrets without changing the levels in any major way;
    3. Bugfixes and polishing;
    4. Utilizes advanced 227 engine features such as "true crouching" and skybox coronas;
    5. Improves all Unreal and RTNP expansion pack levels.
}

Upgraded Inventory & Player Control
{
    1. Vastly improved dodge mechanic: slightest inclines won't cancel dodge, small objects on the floor won't block it, you can dodge underwater + more;
    2. New optional player input such as dedicated dodge and grenade keys bindable from the menu; 
    3. Improved inventory system: Flares last longer. Forcefields are actually useful now. Scuba gear won't instantly drown you if deactivated and so on;
    4. New optional Hardcore mode for those seeking a true challenging but fair test;
    5. New useful autosave system with multiple save slots;
}
//This and much more!

Stupid question, how do I actually run the mod?
If i just launch a new Unreal Game with Unreal Evolution mutator I get bugs where Skaarj warrior enemies are unable to shoot weapons other than the blue laser gun you get at the start of the game. They just run around and dodge bullets.

Sounds like you installed incorrectly. The mod is also more than just the mutator. Preferably join the Discord.com to find out what you're doing incorrectly the fastest, else send me a PM.

Yeah a reinstall fixed the issue. In case anyone else has a similar issue, here is a simple way to check whether the mod is correctly installed:

In the first level there is the moment where you get your first gun. In the original the enemy runs away and disappears, but in Unreal Evolution he will wait to ambush you around the corner.

That ambush is only on hardcore mode.

Wait, Mothership Basement, it has a MASSIVE area that you can explore yet I have no idea how to reach it :o
Granted, I can completely ignore it and go to the next level if I want :/
