I disagree with the sensor range changes, but otherwise consider this excellent work and am downloading as I type. Would it be OK with you if Stardock simply rolled this mod into the next patch? (Some people want the credit, so I thought I'd ask). Stardockians, everything except the GC2types changes looks like a no brainer for inclusion in the next patch to me, and those are worht considering also. If Saber Cherry gives his(?) blessing, please roll this into the next patch!
In the meantime, perhaps this could be stickied?
