Battlefield 1918 is a total conversion modification for Battlefield 1942. The mod takes Battlefield 1942 into a whole new scenario, the first world war. Next to historically correct equipments and vehicles, we try to recreate the atmosphere of these WW1 battlefields as close as we can, keeping in mind the game we're working with. To achieve this, we've drastically changed the gameplay from the original game like so that you must now rely on teamwork, artillery, trenches and slow vehicles....

Release BF1918 3.1

Major Release BF 1918 3.1

After possibly record-breaking three years of development we brought the last works on the new version of Battlefield 1918 to an end. Lots of new stuff (some never shown before) shall compensate for your endurance during the long wait.

The contents of our major release 3.1 are 65 new handweapons, vehicles as well as planes and ships. In addition to that we have 35 new maps and five maps which were completely redone as well as singleplayer support for 30 maps. Last but not least Belgium and Canada as new nations.

Release Trailer 3.1

Besides that we listened to our community and brought old maps which weren't included in version 3.0 back. At this point we want to thank everyone who participated in the making and betatesting of major release 3.1 (the whole dev-team as also our external supporters like Battlegroup 42, Eve of Destruction, Dnamro of or CamelNele). Without your patient and dedicated assistance this version wouldn't be possible. With a very small team with a partial changing lineup we worked one by one on this probably last version of Battlefield 1918 which we want to show you today. Depending on the feedback we reserve the making of a mappack with new content and in addition the third Forgotten Honor campaign for BF1918 is being prepared at the moment.

So we will stay with you for a while. We wish you lots of fun with this release of Battlefield 1918, hoping you'll enjoy it and finally here is the download link to our major release 3.1:

Important note:
This release is a full version - please delete all previous versions of BF1918 (in your bf42/mods folder) you might have installed!

No list of hand weapons? I suppose it'd be a nice surprise.

Although it looked like you only added a few.

Iron-sights/Zoom-sights could use some work. They're pretty inaccurate.

As the mod is more about arcade-like gameplay we're not using real ironsights for aiming but classic hair crosses/dots so please specify what you mean so we can check the quality.

Falleen May 24 2011 replied:

I already specified, they're tremendously off. Took me 20 mins of shooting to realize that the un-zoomed is more accurate than zoomed, and even when you are zoomed the reticle is nowhere near where you bullet is going. Even the sniper rifle's scope is pretty poorly calibrated.

cennedy1457 May 29 2011 replied:

I think what you've experienced is not that the crosshairs and zoom-ins are inaccurate but the weapons' accuracy itself. It's part of the game's balance as the MGs would be much too strong if they would shoot over 90% accurate on the spot which just wasn't possible in WW1.

For the snipers: the player is supposed to lay down and also hold still for 1-2 secs too ensure 100% (sic!) accuracy. If you're moving or not laying at all it's very unlikely that you'll hit your target.

Love the mod... but i was wondering, the botcount in singleplayer seems to be quite low, even with top bot number settings, and they seem to be extremeply stupid. Love the mod :)

Have you tried to adjust the bot numbers and AI inteligence/difficulty before starting a map in COOP mode (not in singleplayer but multiplayer)? They can be quite challenging if you want them to but we'll check your point for a possible issue, thx.
