Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

--- So yeah, while merging the individual files some of the Non-english strings went missing ( ). I have updated the packages with the missing Non-English strings.
--- If you want to help translate the mod, I have added the strings to this comment . The package contains 3 string tables. (translation will be much appreciated)
--- If any last exception appear then download the file icemunmun_Black_plate
