Yup, finally another update. I'm really busy these days, college tasks and exams are really killing me, and I got to work on Recolonize stories. And I see the NProject Mod 2.7 is way too big above my prediction.

Well, here's the list of the NProject Mod current build I have. You will see why I see it's too big. The list still increasing

That unit is created for fun only, no racistic or provocative means. So there's nothing to taken up seriously.
If you don't like it, you can just ignore it.

And don't over-reacting it by giving minus karma to every post here (even the ones that unrelated to that unit)
