Its time to return to the snow: A new version of our Mod has been released: V. 2.7
Basically, it adds a whole bunch of new models and some new units. But thats not all.
New effects,lots of new and even random skins, more map details and last but not least Loran Korns ( r.i.p ) Soundmod raise the bar for realistic athmosphere.
But its not just new eyecandy:It also features updated weapon stats (again, as always big thanks to Xalibur ),
big efforts have been put into bugfixing and stabilizing the mod, we made a german text version , added useful abilities,
corrected prizes, made some new upgrades, added some new units.
Of course we still left some nice bugs for you guys to find out.

We are proud to announce, that every unit in BotB now has the correct model.
It took years, but finally it is ( almost ) as it was supposed to be.
Big thanks to Tankdestroyer, Loran Korn , DMz , Sweeten and Slayerknecht for all their great work. And to Darkblade, for making all that possible.
