First of all, this is incredible that you guys have transformed the game to look and sound so beautifully authentic and detailed - it is a true pleasure to experience.

I have wondered if it may be possible to mod the game so that there is the option to have checkpoints or the ability to quick save and quick load - I realize this may be a hard no, because that goes way beyond replacing visuals and effects.

Checkpoints or Quick save would be a huge quality of life booster in this game, as many missions involve trial/error for how to approach or thread the needle just right (or sometimes simply just what makes you fail an objective). I know many people may embrace the harshness of needing to play again from the beginning of the mission, but for those times when a player does not want to rehash some of the more tedious parts to get a chance at a redo, the option to skip the earlier part would be amazing.

Hello there and thank you for your appreciation! :)

I doubt this will be possible to implement given that it would be a fundamental change in how missions are handled.
Then again, so many things were considered impossible few years ago so you'll never know what comes next.

@JeremyaFr do you think something like that would be possible to achieve?
