First Strike is a Star Wars total conversion modification for Battlefield 2142. The goal of First Strike is to totally immerse the players into the amazing universe of Star Wars by presenting the most accurate representations of famous Star Wars locales, weapons, and characters, and combining them with exciting, fast paced gameplay and features new to the Battlefield scene. Within this mod you'll find yourself as a soldier of the Galactic Empire or as a freedom fighter for the Rebel Alliance. You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

With the Rebel Alliance growing stronger every day and the Empire spread thin as it is, it's no longer a battle of technological might, but simply a matter of who strikes first...

Features include:

  • Famous Star Wars battles
  • An extremely authentic atmosphere
  • Dozens of Star Wars weapons, vehicles, and soldiers
  • Space battles!
  • Online multiplayer for up to 64 people
  • Co-op & Singleplayer Bot support on a growing number of maps
  • Persistent stat tracking

Greetings Troopers!

While we investigate ways to deal with this pesky lack of an EA Master Server (there are a few interesting potential avenues we're currently looking into). I thought I'd treat the First Strike faithful to a new work in progress video on the Echo Base location that features in the much anticipated Battle of Hoth map. Yes, we're still working towards getting that out there despite the recent developments. Depending on how things go you can consider this something to look forward to in the future, or something that might have been under different circumstances. Either way I hope you enjoy the video, and this peek at what we have planned for this most iconic of Star Wars locales.


We've also included a number of screenshots to give you a taste of what you have to look forward to, because they just look so damned pretty.

 
  

I'm also going to take this opportunity to announce that I'll be stepping down as leader of the First Strike Mod Development Team. It has been a Hell of a ride over the years, but I feel my very limited free time to mod would be better spent working solely on the Battle of Hoth map's art assets rather than having to deal with the various issues involved with leadership, then perhaps this fabled Hoth map will sometime finally see the light of day. Additionally these new complications that have arisen call for a different more technical type of leader, and I'm sure he'll be along soon to introduce himself to you.

So, so long and thanks for all the fish (wrong franchise, I know), not to worry though, I'll certainly still be around.

Hopefully soon we'll...

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

I think I found a bug.

The accuracy on all my guns except the DH-17 Pistol and Se-14r Pistol are the amount of accuracy you get as if I'm moving forward at full speed (not sprinting) even though I am stationary. And it wont go away until I restart FS 1.6.

Heres a screenshot with me standing completely still:
Moddb.com

This affects all the weapons; The rocket launchers, the blaster rifles, the carbines, even the shotguns! but the worst is the Packard Mortar Gun (as pictured).

We have a forum thread on the First Strike forums just for bug reports. We monitor those forums much more frequently.

Disregard that Bug I thought I found.
Turns out it was my Xbox controller left joystick ghosting! (i cannot figure out how to increase deadzone in this game)

I checked the forums and there was nothing on the topic which was too suspicious given the age of the mod so i decided to try and find the cause one more time. And success.

I found'em on Gamefront. Every one of them crashed. (loaded up but crashed as i pressed deploy) One of them wouldn't even extract lol

I would've even tried if they hadn't been made for a previous version of First Strike but it was worth a shot.

The SP mappack is posted on the First Strike forums. This works with First Strike proper now. This is a collection of 2412 conversion maps as well as some maps created for First Strike but not part of the official multiplayer maps. They all work in SP and Coop.

Yeah, I don't think they're compatible since it got integrated into the official mod properly. Most of the maps from that are now in the mod as the singleplayer portion, plus the AI support is much improved since the SP Minimod. If you have First Strike 1.6 you should be able to play singleplayer, you just have to do it off-line due to issues with the EA Master Server closing down, as mentioned in the latest news update.

You'd have to ask Dnamro about that, but I think that disappeared when it officially became part of the mod proper as co-op/singleplayer support. Though I think it might still be available somewhere as there were a few maps that we didn't feel were appropriate to officially add to the mod.
