Silent Heroes v1.1
Major Changes:
- Recoil-driven spread for all handguns! True aim, true skill.
- All four new boats fully implemented and added to several maps.
- Engineer now has the ability to drop ammo-boxes. It refills bullets only.
- Bell412, HKP11 and Westland Lynx now has fosfor-launchers to be deployed when flying into a hot LZ.
- A LOT of textures gone over with a comb to improve performance.
- Four new maps, SH Arena, SH Byen, SH MonoZone and Vaderon.

Small Changes:
- 'True Angles' is back on the armour, i.e. higher and lower max-angles for the guns as used on the real ones. This ofcourse brings back the ability to shoot oneself in the rear. Use with caution.
- BF Server Manager should be able to see all coop-maps properly now.
- Hiteffects for all handguns tweaked. A lot more usage of hit-decals.
- Winter-textures improved to acctually give a blending action over distance.
- Sounds and soundscripts have been worked on.
- Several small tweaks and fixes.

Please note:
- RecoilDriven Spread is NOT easy at first, but gets easier every time you play - rewarding training to the full extent. Play a couple of times and it's eaasier to hit an opponent then in BF2...
- Since 'True Angles' is re-implementet on armoured vehicles it's highly possible to shoot oneself. But we think everyone is ready to handle this responsibility now. ;)

Admin note:
- Since 1.0b an admin is able to toggle 'Stress-darkness' via the server-settings called 'Enable Crosshair Centerpoint' in BF42 Server manager. We realise not everybody likes the feature of 'Stress-darkness', hence we leave it up to the server-owners to decide on a per server-basis.
