    What you want is to compare the Vanilla templates.ecf file against the templates.ecf file of RE using a program like Winmerge. That'll give you an idea of what is different and you can alter it to your tastes for a local game or on your own server. (Copy the scenario to your 'scenarios' folder, don't alter files in the subscribed folder, they'll just get overwritten.).
