Just a small note to let players know that v1.10 of the Balance Mod is coming along nicely. The current version history has over 70 entries, including fixes, new items, and lots of AI improvements. The v1.10 update should be released around the same time that the next patch for SE:V arrives. If you have bug reports or suggestions, use the contact information below to send me a message.

I've added a couple new Balance Mod resources. One is a Balance Mod help page that provides information about installation and adding items to the mod. The second page contains some Balance Mod FAQs that cover different items in the mod. I'd like to update both pages regularly based on the feedback from SE:V players.
