That annoying crashbug has been fixed. Other than that, this is the same BOTA as the last. Enjoy!

===From the Readme===

---Basically OTA 1.5---

This mod is a modification of the OTA mod for spring.

It was created as an improved OTA mod that addresses the problems caused by the move to Spring.
While it does keep the same core gameplay of OTA, it is not an attempt to perfectly recreate OTA.
Stats for many units have been changed either for balance or gameplay reasons.

it includes the evolva models along with other models and scripts salvaged from other mods.

To install drop the BOTA_15.sd7 file into the mods directory
