Ok, I know this is April fool's day, but I decided it would be a good day to go ahead and release the updates and fixes I have put together for the mod so far, since I have all the fixes done and the mod seems to be at a stable point. After all the jokes and hoaxes I thought it might be good to have something real for April Fool's day.

New - Handweapon and vehicle AI fixes/tweaks

= Bots use grenades less often (tried to reduce bot grenade spam)
= Bots don't use Defibrulator (until I find a way to reduce the bots use of it)
= Bots weapon range increased on all air vehicle weapons.
New - All weapons in kits should be available without restrictions
New - Assault kit has pistol instead of shotgun (shotgun seemed too much for kit)

= Bridge of Remagen has goliath and Hamamchi
= Port Bavaira has Goliath
= Highway Tampa has Goliath.
>>> Port Bavaria is a lot more challenging with bots able to use the AA rocket handweapons and use of the Goliath (IFV).
>>> Bridge of Remagen 48 player mod sp/coop is a blast with only Hamachi vehicles (HOV light)
Future mod plans:
= add 16 & 32 modes for coop/sp in Operation Shingle
= Add Northern Strike vehicles into more maps
= Fix up and add Bridge of Remagen Night back in
= Get bots to use stationary Anti air and Anti vehicle weapons on a regular basis and fix the CTD problem with bots using the AA gun.
= Add autocontrollers to vehicle secondary weapons (no more waiting for a bot gunner or having one bail).
= Add a rocket firing version of hamamachi
= Add AI support for more BF2142 maps.
= Add custom maps with sp/coop support.
= Add unlock weapon customization support.
