Eve of Destruction: Classic is a free modification of the popular Battlefield 1942 game by DICE/EA, based on the Vietnam war. No other military conflict is comparable to those dramatic years of the 20th century. Most rumors spread about the Indochina and Vietnam War are not honest, even though it was the best documented war in history. No other military conflict was ever so controversial, pointing to an unloved fact: our enemy was not the only source of evil, the evil could be found within ourselves. The "Eve Of Destruction" mod is a tribute to the U.S., ARVN and Vietcong/NVA soldiers who fought and died in Vietnam, and also to the Vietnamese people.
Eve of Destruction Classic v2.40 - 10th Anniversary Release 10 years Eve of Destruction!
Posted by Lotte|EoD on Feb 6th, 2012
Founded in 2002 EoD is getting 10 years old now.
It has been the first released mod for Battlefield 1942 and still has players all around the world!
Some guys of the team went to EA in the early years of the century and maybe they worked on BF-2, BC:Vietnam or BF-3, we just don't know.
EoD was growing from it's first release and got a lot of help from the community and other mods, especially from Battlegroup42, US Intervention MOD, Forgotten Hope and many many others.
Also EoD got famous cause of the nice music that was made just for the mod. The talented musicians were Prozac Ltd., M'busy'Most and last but not least Taichi and some of us hear their music while driving car or at home. But the most important help was the help from our players, from YOU. Without your suggestions the mod wouldn't live anymore and no one would be motivated to improve anything.
Right now we want to say THANK YOU!
Thank you for the help and support, for your ideas, voices, maps, models, code, graphics, videos and much much more. Also a big THANKS to all the mirrors -like MODDB- who have hosted these large files with a lot of terrabytes of traffic!

Of course there are many more fixes and improvements so take a look at the changelog for detailed information.
It's a full version so you need to manually uninstall and delete any older version of EoD before installation!
Otherwise the game may crash or you can't connect to any server.
With Infinite map we've got one of the largest map Battlefield 1942 ever has seen. We just know about one released map with that size of 4096x4096 but don't know if it ever was played anywhere. The huge map is 4x as big as Operation Hastings so it will take a while to learn every mile of the landscape.
But we don't release anything as an 'experiment' and of course the map was well tested and special thanks go to my little son Sven (SirVen|EoD) for testing some hours with me and fixing all dificiencies.
He was the first who found the hidden easter egg in that map and we had a lot of fun, especially about his aerial acrobatics.
We wish you a lot of fun with the new build and all the best!
