Hey folks,

This simple mod removes the animated characters from the background of the island map. This makes the game run with 25fps and more on a intel HD3000. Previously the map screen crawled at 5fps for me.
This is a modified file that needs to be copied to a "worlds" folder within your Carrier Command directory. Just extract this with folders and it should work.

NOTE: This may not be compatible with all versions of the game, at least until a patchfile packer is available.

File packer is working, but I have not been able to get additional PAC1 files to work in my game (Steam version) yet.

Also, I'm currently writing a bogus number into the file header because there are 4 bytes I have no idea about. The game runs after I unpack and re-pack all the big original files, so my tool can't be all wrong.

Awesome!

I haven't noticed any performance change on my rig, but I do much prefer the clean look!

Well done, nice job!
