Installation:

! We provide 2 different installation methods for both versions:
- Simple Installation: If you didn't install any mods to your game before, just use this method to replace the files.

Notes:

- Textures for "Replacement" and "Add-On" versions are different:
- Replacement version textures are either in DXT1 or DXT5 (according to the original texture). If DXT5, alpha layer is painted in 50% gray (#808080) to avoid excessive brightness because of premultiplied alpha blending.
- Add-On version textures are in DXT5 without alpha layers.

- For "Add-On" version and "Advanced Installation" method, there is both of premade Aaron config to use with vanilla game; and a text file which has what to add into your Aaron config if you have added plates before.
