  • civilian vehicles X
  • more detailed urban enviroment X
  • dynamic objects like ragdoll barrels X

X = work in progress
X = work done


This featurelist is NOT final, the aboth listed features are wanted but not confirmed!

I want to include as much of the aboth as possible, since the first battlefield 2 game was c# based and had more in common with battlefield 1942, some features might not be possible to implent.

Also some things might wont be possible because of engine limitations!
Thought i do my best on getting the battlefield feeling back into the game as it was planed before all those additional features were dropped...

Stay tuned on updates!

Talk to some of the gui experts on BF2 and see if it is possible to switch sights on weapons. IE: irons sights to acog to red dot to holo sights.

No doubt, that's a mod I would like to work on!
Battlefield 2 really looked good before EA rushed Dice. Plus, I really like your idea to keep a balance between arcade and realism, instead of thinking like those new games/mods who add rails on anything...
If you need a modeler/coder, just pm me and I'll help you to end your project.

1. Drop supply crates from transport helicopters (transport helicopters = blackhawk and chinook)onto the battlefield. Pilot must fly low enough to drop the crate. If flying too high, crate will break or crate will not even drop.

2. (a) - Soldiers must rappel onto the battlefield from transport helicopters.
(b) - Helicopter must hover (not exceed a certain speed) and cannot exceed a certain height otherwise soldiers can't rappel onto battlefield.
(c) - Soldiers can only jump out and parachute if helicopter has taken a percentage of damage.

3. Special ops and Snipers are able to designate a target and call in an airstrike. The airstrike will be a powerful air-to-ground missile which covers a large radius. This missile can only be launched once a target has been designated. The pilot will then have 45 seconds to act before you have to re-designate the target again. Fighter plane only holds one large radius missile.

4. Toxic gas grenade which slowly decreases the health of both friendly (including you) and enemy units inside the smoke radius. Does not affect enclosed vehicles (eg. Tank and APC) and aircrafts.

5. Orange beacon - The beacon can be activated by pressing a key on the keyboard. This alerts friendly units on the mini-map that they're looking for a ride. Remains active for 60 seconds until automatically deactivated. The player will know its active by seeing an orange icon flashing somewhere on the HUD.

6. Brown beacon - Can be activated using another key which alerts friendly units on the mini-map that the player needs backup. Remains active for 30 seconds until automatically deactivated. The player will know its active by seeing an brown icon flashing somewhere on the HUD.

All this writing has put me in the mood to play BF2. So I'm gonna go play now. I'll write more later! :D

nice ideas there mate, especialy like the idea of the beacons to be visible on the minimap for others, i am not sure if it is doable for b2 but i can imagine such stuff would be great for the next bf generation, propably bf3 :)

Could we get some 3D scopes too? Similar to what the Combat Mod had with its M4 before it shut down?

@naxphoenix That idea with parachute I don't like except for pilot and gunners.

An idea from myself. If the pilot dies in cockpit of a helicopter then co-pilot could take over control without changing the seat. Which made me think, no changing seats. Wouldn't it be better?

Is there any chance that you will make infantry a little more healthy with more energy and power in combat(i mean vitality), and not remain only as simple cannon fodder, like vanilla BF2. What you think about this?

Could the grappling hooks be put as a weapon for blackhawk? This way troops could rappel down into the battle like everyone wants.

Does the 3d sniper scope shader mean just a simple blur shader like in PR? If so i have made one based on this tutorial ( ) I made it so that it hooks into the BF2 engine through the TV effect.

4. New Tank/APC hud like AIX

Greetings Team Alpha Project,

I am a big fan of the work they are doing and would like to make a suggestion:

I thought it would be cool to add anti-air missiles to the soldiers, as the FIM-92 Stinger and Strela 2 Stinger mod AIX 2.0, of course zoom the 3D worked as it has been great in other guns they made.

I'm looking forward to the release of the new patch Alpha Project (Jones Relax, I'm not asking when it will be, but hopefully will be soon kkk):D

Hugs and good work to all

SpetsnazVDV Jan 8 2012 says:

This is a amazing mod, and I can't wait for all this to become reality.
I have only three suggestions, and one is related to NaxPhoenix's suggestion. Is there a way for you to program the AI pilots so that they actually land the Helicoptors? Maybe they could hover, then decrease height once over a flat area large enough for landing. Then the soldier riding in them could bail out.
My other suggestion is a bit more simple. Maybe vehicle wrecks could stay for a much longer time, but the vehicles could still respawn.
Finally, Russian forces?

SpetsnazVDV Jan 8 2012 says:

Two more things, does anyone know how if I could turn crosshairs back on? 'cause I don't really like it without them.
Also, maybe you could make a M4 aimpoint with a grenade launcher?

daemonma1 May 5 2012 says:

What about a grapple-hook launcher, or a system where the weapon can jam in certain circumstances, prompting the player to perform maintenance on their weapon, sounds silly and time wasting I know, but I'm just throwing some ideas out there, never know if you don't try eh?

Also, maybe think about customizing the player, E.G tradeoff between ammo cap or extra grenades (FRAG/40MM depending on the class) maybe also choosing special equipment such as the NVG's or possibly Thermal's (IR strobes?) like I said, just spitballin here.
