Flasche has a point, if someone modifys vanilla so they can get an advantage ingame and still play with other people that don't have those same modifications you'll be getting alot of angry players that just quit alltogether. Firewarrior's removal of the BE rpg shield isn't bad looking at all and there is no real reason not to include it in offical releases. Infact I don't see how you can expect new players to have fun or stick around when they don't have access to the same things the "better" players do. I.E. norollerbar jeeps, nowireNFwalls, removal of all particles, modifying infantry skins so they appear black and purple pokadot, and the list goes on.
