There are still many textures left, but this is how the game looks at the moment. (Final version will look much better)

Video comparison and gameplay.



Mostly showing desert maps, because textures for these maps are mostly done.

Suggestion! Please add better animations and 3D iron sight aiming to all weapons? I am pretty sure there was already a mod that did that which you could contact the makers of and get permission to use with this mod. I highly suggest it with a project like this, because if you are going to try and bring it into the modern age with better textures, why not give the original weapons at least better animations and sights while you are at it?

I am going to be tracking this amazing mod! Looking forward to future progress!

P.S. If you want to know the mod Bluedrake grabbed 3d iron sights from to make his PR style mod, look here.

If anything I am sure just giving credit to the guys wouldn't be looked down upon if you can't make contact. Hell not everybody is able to get permission from content for 100% abandoned mods anyways, and the Doom, and Quake and Unreal and COD communities hijack content from other mods all the time to make new ones haha, so no reason for the BF community to get too bent out of shape by it. But still, you should try to get permission first. It is the right thing to do.

Thanks for suggestion. There are amazing mods by other modders. Like moving clouds in the sky, "fake" ragdoll death animations, etc. It would be nice to combine them.

But for now i want to make a mod which is multiplayer compatible. And new textures, shadows and ReShade can be used for current servers.

Later i can make an even better looking version for single player and for mod servers. It would be nice to add more vegetation and other objects to the maps too. Some of them are way too empty, like Guadalcanal.

Ah ok I totally understand that! I didn't know textures could be swapped out in this game and still allow connection to normal servers. XD

Very nice start to the mod. I am following this and the equally awesome 2142 remaster as well. Will be great to see progress often.

Keep up the great work!

I honestly don't like the fake ragdoll death animations. They look kinda ****** and gives the game that asset flippy feel if you know what i mean
