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.

GREETINGS TROOPERS!

Well it has been a long time coming, but it gives us great pleasure to be able to announce the release of First Strike 1.6 at long last. The content itself will be available through automatic update through the First Strike Launcher, but in addition to that new content we also have a new launcher for you to try which you can link to here:


UPDATE:

FS Launcher Installers updated to fix a number of issues including allowing people to install it wherever they want. The Launcher itself will automatically update itself with the hotfixes we've rolled out this week to address other issues which have been raised since the launch of 1.6. Enjoy.

Later on we'll also release a full First Strike 1.6 installer for those who wish to install this from scratch rather than updating from First Strike 1.55. So just to clarify, you can now update to FS 1.6 from an existing copy of FS 1.55 via the launcher. The file linked to above is just the new First Strike Launcher, and not the whole mod, you'll need a copy of FS 1.55 in addition to this to play the mod. A full First Strike 1.6 installer will be available in a day or two.

We hope you enjoy these improvements, and look forward to seeing you all on the servers soon.

Is there a way to download 1.5 and 1.6 together? The torrent is down for 1.5, and 1.6 will take forever to download from ModDB.

There will be a full 1.6 installer released shortly. However if you have FS 1.5 use the launcher to auto update, this will download and install 1.55 and then 1.6 for you and you'll be good to go.

Has been for a long time, just needed a tweak to a certain file to make it so. But as I've mentioned before, the new launcher sorts it so you no longer need to manually tweak any files to make it compatible.

Sorry you're having trouble Scripty, we have covered it multiple times in the comments, but check out Twigs' video on how to install the mod, that should make things clear and help you out.

two servers last time I looked. Check your server settings in game, make sure you select the centre tab (FirstStrike servers) and that along the bottom, only same mod and same version are ticked, then hit refresh.
