Patch 5.1 released!

We're now rolling out our 5.1 patch, it's been given the thumbs up by our internal testers, so many thanks to them.
You can find the patch in our download section, the patch is not so much a patch but the whole mod re-uploaded, this is because we wanted to avoid the issues of old mod files interfering and also the fact so many files were edited that it is much easier this way for us.
As such you will need to remove all old mod files before installing!

In this patch we see a fix to a number of the major issues that were present in our initial release. Thank you to everyone who reported bugs and gave suggestions, it's helped us greatly with this patch.
There are issues we are aware of and are still working on, but we felt now was a good time to put out all of the major fixes we have so far. We will be continually working to patch all problems with the mod, and we have internally began considering the new content for our next content update, so stay tuned for that! And even feel free to give suggestions on what you would like to see!

Thank you again for your continued support.

don't know if its just me but all the tanks have a crew that jump out of the tank instead of driving it and there is no fire at will button on the tanks so all the tanks are useless
