Hi, this is my most recent mod. I took the ideas behind the old 'Visually-Improved Sides Mod' and drove it into a sort of 'unofficial update' direction. So, with that, I've made some changes to balancing that can be found in the list below. This is not an 'overhaul' in the same manner as most of my older mods, because the idea was to keep to the stock sides setup as faithfully as possible while balancing things out a bit and tweaking a few things. I've also reworked things to make it more faithful to the source material.

Word of warning: this should be addon map compatible, with the exception of Jabba's Palace. I will be posting a separate update to Jabba's Palace to work with 1.4.
