History: After discovering both Unreal II and MapMixer for UT2004, I wanted a mod like that for a long time. Since there was nothing like that back then, I ended up trying to change a few default properties of UTXMP weapons so they would appear in UT2004. This was my first big coding project ever. After the initial release, I found that basing the weapons on the UTXMP code is too incompatible with mainline UT2004 for the lack of custom pawns and changes that needed to be in the super class of all the weapons, so I rewrote the code from scratch, and right now it's near perfect, except the fact that some Unreal II weapons (SC, Laser Rifle, Spider Gun) are missing. I also have a few ideas about how I could improve the mod even further.
