Regarding hosting this mission as a multiplayer server;
This mission is originally designed and intended for SINGLEPLAYER use only. There will be many issues and bugs that arise when you se t this mission up in a multiplayer setting. However, I do see the viability of this mission being used in a small private co-op setting, which does require you to host the mission online in some way.
I kindly ask that you keep it private either by password protecting or hiding it from the public server list when you host this mission. I also ask that you let me know if you wish to do so.
