Much of the “new” content in this release deals with added functionality. In particular, we’ve focused on making it easier to distribute and play game modifications (known as “mods”) created by talented fans of the game. These modifications can be as simple as substituting rail guns and rail ammo for all weapons in a map, or a new player model and skin; or as complicated as a “Total Conversion” (or “TC”) in which all game rules, graphics, maps and sounds are changed to make a brand new game. History has shown (with several games) that some of these mods can become more popular with on-line players than the original games alone.
