Info
- It's not a mod, You can play it with your Official Vanilla BF2 installation.
- 12 classic BF2 maps fully remastered. (1.65)



1) Visuals and Graphics

- 60% larger view distance in all maps maps, maintaining each map individual Fog signature
- All maps with much better Hi-Resolution 2048MB (Finest possible quality) Lighting with SoftShadows, original maps have an 512MB texture for object lighting and Low-Res shadows for terrains, that makes it much less realistic and whith far worse graphics in general.
- Much better Static Objects details, all static objects keeps the highest Level of Detail (LOD) no matter what. Needs a 1GB+ VRAM Card, capable of running the game at high settings except for AA filtering.
- New color palette, with more realistic look and not as bright and washed as the original one.
- Improved vegetation, more dense and higher, with improved mesh and textures
- New, more realistic Sky Models and Sky Effects
- More detail over distance for every soldier, vehicle, terrain and objects
- New, improved and more detailed textures for terrain and vegetation


2) Ai improvements and Dedicated Co-op Server capable

- All maps except for Kubra Dam, have dedicated server co-op option for training with up to 64 bots.
- Larger Navigation Mesh for infantry and vehicles for Dragon Valley and Daqing Oilfields, making wider epic Co-op matches possible in a true 64 players combat area.
- Elaborated Game-modes and strategies for all maps on singleplayer and Co-op, that can also be used for new Conquest tournaments.
- Custom Ai file fully compatible with Vanilla Official servers, for large co-op game modes with up to 64 Players


3) Performance & Fixes

- Fixed flickering on bridges and Airstrips, fixed detail flickering on rocky surfaces
- Disabled LOD switching for objects with complex geometries, this can reduce lag and stuttering at expense of using more video memory (1GB+ VRAM Recommended)
- Reduced vegetation and gravel being rendered in places no one will ever see, such as under big static objects or areas out of combat bounds
- Fine tuned vegetation, view distance and fog for best performance without weird objects pop-in the screen, but avoiding them to be rendered in distances over the max view distance, increasing performance and reducing memory usage.


4) Full support for Official severs and game-modes

- Official Vanilla compatible Conquest game modes for 16,32 or 64 players
- Custom MD5 checksums for anti-cheat support, compatible with PB and others anti-cheat tools.

2) Copy/paste the content of Levels folder into your EA Games/Battlefield 2/mods/bf2/Levels folder. Do the same for your BF2Server/mods/bf2/Levels to run the HD maps in a dedicated server or Lan mode.

3) Copy/paste the content of BF2Server folder into your EA Games/BF2Server folder to run a dedicated Co-Op server with up to 64 bots and 100FPS (instead of default 35FPS server) or an Official Vanilla Conquest server at 100FPS. Override when asked.

- Set the CoopBotRatio to 100%

Why not to rename mod "BF2 Project Remaster"? Since it embraces much more content then just sky and maps :)
