JA2 1.13 Mod (Named as such because it's an unofficial upgrade to JA2 GOLD version 1.12) is an enhancement to the game engine for Jagged Alliance 2. It's a community project and has been in an Open Beta phase since June of 2005, with new updates being released regularly through our public SVN. We also have official releases that are downloadable Install packages every few months (Which will be posted here as they become available). Key features can be read by going to the homepage or the wiki, but here is a rundown: The AI has been vastly improved, and a new difficulty level, INSANE, was added. Enemies will now lay down suppression fire to make your mercs drop to the floor and waste AP's. They'll flank you, and they will set up sniping positions complete with spotters and they'll even climb on the roof tops to come after you. So much data has been externalized, it's hard to keep track of it all. Just about everything dealing with items has been externalized,...
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like JA2 1.13 Mod. We love games like Jagged Alliance 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
To thank those who participate in spreading the love and awareness, we have partnered up with many awesome mod-friendly games (Killing Floor 2, Mount & Blade Warband, Space Engineers, Insurgency, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Black Mesa, Contagion, Amnesia - get involved) & have hundreds of keys to giveaway. To win one of the games, after you have linked to a mod on Mod DB (or anywhere else) in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post, let us know by leaving a comment with a link to your post. At the end of the week we shall be picking members at random who followed these rules, and will send them a key from one of these games.
