/All Primaries (with melee): Melee Damage 50 -> 70
/Shotguns: Minimal damage 7 -> 9, Damage 10 -> 12, All accuracy/spread penalties resulting from moving or repeated fire removed. Basically, the weapon always has the same spread now, though being crouched or prone will affect it.

/NFHR: Accuracy modifier for Ironsights: 0.85 -> 0.60

/Ranged Rifle: Clip Size 10 -> 5, Base damage 45 -> 75, This will affect body shots, but not Headshots, which are unchanged. Stamina based Scope swap has been removed, there's now a constant but minimal amount of sway that's unaffected by stamina or anything else.

Thanks for the feedback!

Empires has been distributed on Steam since after version 2.3 at this URL:

I'm currently posting a backlog of changelogs that were not posted on moddb when the release was made. The latest (and current) 2.6.1 changelog will be more fleshed out with a proper download link and other resources.

Let me know if that will work. Thanks! :)
