Many mods for Star Wars Battlefront 2 have been about the Clone Wars. However, none have focused on the TV show like this. Great effort has been put into this era mod to make you feel like you are fighting in "The Clone Wars." It includes all the features players have come to expect from high quality era mods: New classes, AI heroes, unit models, weapons, animations and more.
And this mod includes many clone trooper legions, including the famed 501st, 327th and the 212th, as well as new clones like the Wolfpack Troopers; they are randomized from mission-to-mission, so you get a different legion every match.
The mod also features many heroes who have rarely or never been seen before. These include Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, Padme Amidala, Bossk, Barriss Offee and more. Plus, classic heroes done in TCW Style, like Obiwan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Assajj Ventress and more. Jedi heroes are assigned to their clone legions. But with SWBF2's hero system, only one hero is available per legion. By randomizing the heroes along side their clone legion, this will ensure that each hero will have a fair chance to command his or her troops. For example, when the 501st is the playable legion, the hero will either be Anakin or Ahsoka since they both command this legion. In addition, every clone legion has a clone "hero," like Commander Cody, Captain Rex, Commander Wolffe, and many others.
The CIS has not gone unchanged; their whole setup reflects what is seen in "The Clone Wars." Many special CIS units are randomized from mission-to-mission. For instance, one match you may have an Ultra Droideka to fight as or against and other times an Elite Commando Droid.
In addition, the stock maps have had changes. Many maps were given randomized and appropriate weather. For example, a match on Tatooine could take place in the middle of a sunny day as usual. However it could also take place in the middle of the night under the moons or during a dust storm facing the elements.
Also, probability determines the role of the Republic and CIS as either defender or attacker; the clones may invade a CIS-held Kashyyyk, or the Republic may be retaking their capital of Coruscant.
As an added bonus, Rahm Kota's Republic Militia is randomized as a "clone legion," allowing you to fight as Rahm Kota and his padawan Falon Grey before The Force Unleased.The Militia is a group of volunteer soldiers that Rahm Kota handpicked himself due to his mistrust of using clone troops.
With more surprises to come and planned expansion packs, this mod should keep you playing for a long long time...
Be sure to watch the trailer and keep an eye out for this mod in 2012.

I have decided to post news about once a month of what was worked recently, give you guys an idea where we are in the development of The Clone Wars.
First off we completely redid the scripts to be more efficient, easing strain off of the system and reduce crashes. This took a lot of work, and will be tweaked in the future to bring it up to full functionality.
Secondly we set the new music back up again, and we're adding more music than ever.
That's about it for January. In Febuary, we'll be going over the sides, improving the gameplay and balance.
