Kasos (mapper)
MPC (textures and mapping)
William (Contributed some lovely models)

Without the help and dedication of all these people none of this would have happened, thank you all very much. If I have forgotten or overlooked anyone's contribution, it was not intentional and I am very sorry.

We hope you enjoy this latest addition to The Battle Grounds, have a very Merry Christmas!

God this mod is still played isn't it. If it wasn't for the retarded amount of racism people spout while playing this game, it would probably still be pretty fun.

if you cant handle racism, you should probably get off the internet. or you can open your own server and ban for it.

Believe it or not, the majority of people aren't racist, and I would just disable the voice com, but many of the admins in BG2 are racists, and not listening to them often results in a kick.
