  11. I have made a adboard pack (static and digital) it has been merged with the one on sortitout so find it yourself if you want to use it.
  12. Game is encouraged to be played with the Realism Files made by @Daveincid as they adjust just about everything to make the game even more realistic and accurate than it already is.
