Rotating Items 1.0
Crater Creator on May 15th 2013
Back when items were strictly 2D sprites, there was little reason to care about their facing angle. We now have plugins that replace items with 3D models, yet in nearly all existing maps all weapons and ammo face the same direction.
This plugin addresses this cosmetic oddity by making all items slowly rotate (yaw), as seen in other shooters like Quake and Unreal. The 2D sprites were easy to identify because you could see them in profile from any angle. This animation restores that property, and the movement also makes them stand out more. Unfortunately, because the script physically manipulates the items in the environment, it's only expected to work in single player.
I've been using this for myself ever since thedoctor45 released his excellent 3D items plugin in February 2012. However, it's very simple and should work with any 3D items, for any scenario. Anyone making a "3D items" or similar plugin is welcome to bundle this into their work; one look at the lua and you'll see how simple the effect is to create.

This is my first plugin uploaded to this site, it adds hi-res weapon in hand graphics to replace the original, low-res sprites with redone 3d rendered sprites.
Constructive criticism/tips are very welcome.
Notes for version 1.2:
revised the hands a bit more, added 3d weapon items.

Navigate the path without stepping off, nor letting your crosshair fall upon the many enemies about the room. The result of which would be unspeakable.
Turn on auto-center camera and turn off the overhead map display for a greater challenge. Difficult but beatable.
A provided lua script also allows crushing enemies with your mind if you are into simple pleasures like that.
Notes for version 1.00001:
Added a film showing a completed run.
Clarification in ReadMe file.

A simple Autohotkey script binding the 'quicksave' cheat to F5. Also includes a stock script allowing easy FOV modification.
Notes for version 1.0:
The exe included will only work on Windows I'm afraid - Autohotkey isn't available for Mac or Linux. The FOV script should work on any version of Aleph One.

Rubicon Magnum v1.3
MarathonPfhorever on Mar 24th 2013
The only true person I'm really bringing this back for is the editor on Marathon.Bungie.Org. Have a nice day that I made! I just didn't feel like I was making a good first impression with RM v1.2, but now I regret it taking it down in the first place. I haven't really used it since.
Notes for version v1.3:
Designed specifically for the editor at marathon.bungie.org lol stop making a big deal out of it. I mean, really?

Realism Pack 2.0
PerseusSpartacus on Mar 1st 2013
This shapes, sounds, and physics pack is designed to make the play of Marathon Infinity more realistic. In future, I may modify even more of the game's workings, such as monster movement speeds or attack speeds.
NOTE: This physics model is not designed for multiplayer use; it would make the weapons incredibly overpowered and many maps almost unplayable.
Notes for version 2.0:
A comprehensive list of changes can be found in the Read-me file.

The original Marathon weapons were not really designed with people in mind. They were designed to be effective against slow and stupid aliens that could not dodge shots and could not operate their weaponry while they were being blasted by the player. Human players are a bit more intelligent, and faster than that.
Note that this is not designed with monsters in mind!
This physics model addresses those changes and has undergone thorough balance testing during its development. Weapon switching delay is now nearly non-existant and random damage has been taken out of the game. Weapons that would normally never see action in an otherwise SPNKR filled multiplayer match can now go up against a SPNKR armed player under the right conditions.

Notes for version 1.5:
(more thorough changelog in readme)
- Speed increase of all regular bullets up to 4096.
- Alien Weapon is now a dual function with a regular primary trigger but secondary trigger set as chargeable long range high damage weapon
- The good old automatic KKV-7 SMG is back.
- Bug fix: Enforcers now use "unused 1" shot slot instead of Alien Weapon Blast so not to make them overpowered
