Sol Map Pack (R1)



1. OVERVIEW


The Sol Map Pack adds maps set on various planets and moons throughout our Solar System to Instant Action. Both stock eras include new sides with enhanced visuals and sounds, as well as new hero units. Also supports the Mass Effect era if installed.

1.1. This map pack currently features:

  • 5 new maps set on Earth, Luna, Mars, Titan, and Venus
  • Support for the Clone Wars, Galactic Civil War, and Mass Effect era on all maps
  • New Battlefront: Evolved-esque sides, meaning gameplay and layouts stay the same, but models/textures/sound FX have been changed/upgraded to fit the map pack's theme
  • An eerie ambient soundscape that supplements each map's music (except Earth: Pioneer Trails), unique to each map
  • Several new hero units, including but not limited to Rahm Kota and Asajj Ventress
  • Game mode support for Conquest, 1-Flag CTF, 2-Flag CTF, and Hero Assault (Note: Game mode availability varies from map to map)
  • A new Hero Assault soundtrack, set to selections from Holst's The Planets, Op. 32

1.2. What to expect in future updates:

  • New maps, including but not limited to ones set on Jupiter, Io, and Pluto
  • Bug fixes
  • Extended era support for future Mass Effect: Unification releases

Good news everyone! We've created a public Discord server for Frayed Wires! Click HERE or on the image at the bottom of this article to join it!

Hold up, slick. What's Discord?

Discord is an "all-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life."

If you're familiar with Slack, it's pretty much the same thing but free and made with gaming instead of workplace productivity in mind.

Big deal. What does this mean?

Well, my friend, now there's a place where you can do the following (and more)!

  • Receive exclusive news and WIP updates regarding our mods' development!
  • Chat with each other!
  • Easily coordinate/set up online Battlefront (or ME3 Multiplayer) matches with other players!
  • Provide feedback on our mods!
  • Report bugs!

Great! How do I get it and join the server?

You can either download and install the Discord app for Windows/Mac/Android/iOS (and soon Linux) by clicking HERE, or you can use the web app (which is identical in pretty much every way to the desktop app, just less convenient) by clicking HERE.

Once you've created a new account, you can join the Frayed Wires server by clicking HERE or on the image below. After you've done so, feel free to introduce yourself!

Could you consider some more 'Earth' maps perhaps set in an urban area or somewhere famous (National Monuments or Parks?)? This was something was never properly explored in map modding for BF2.

Yeah we've definitely thought about it. Currently, future maps set on Earth are uncertain but always a possibility.

Love this awesome mod. Will you plan to add the Red Alert era into this mod? In my opinion, Red Alert era only sets on Earth and Luna.

That's why I support this. Looking forward for the upcoming updates. :)

I absolutely love this mod! It blows my mind how much detail are put into them! So far, Earth is my favorite. The textures are mind blowing for this game and the rain adds a awesome touch to it. I'd recommend getting this mod. If the creator is reading this, I'm exited for future updates! I can't wait for Saturn to come. I know Jupiter and Pluto are coming soon. Again, awesome, awesome mod.

Hey, just wanted to say, these are really well done. I would call the whole pack some of the best mod maps I've ever played anyway, but the fact that Holst plays in the background absolutely makes it for me. Keep up the great work.

Thanks a lot! :)

"The Planets" is undoubtedly one of my all-time favorite classical suites of music, sitting up near the top with various works by Rachmaninoff and Whitacre, haha
