    Yes thank you, I have noticed that now. Are injuries a lot more frequent in Niks file?
  • Stam's avatar
    @argyle_daz: There are 2 files for injuries; 1 of them is in Greek. You can skip that.

    Thank you so much for these files Nik. I just gave it a quick try last night, it looks like some of the injuries come up in a strange language. It looks like Russian? I dont know if there is a fix for this? Thanks

    Good afternoon, the links through Steam do not work. It says that you subscribe to be able to download, you do it and there is no download link.

    Thanks for your job.

    Hi there and thank you for your files! I really like to try them but could you add a direct download, I like it more than the Steam Workshop. That would be nice!
