The Conversion Pack is a comprehensive add-on to the original Battlefront II. It adds 25 new maps - including all of the maps from Battlefront 1 not originally featured in Battlefront 2, 5 new gamemodes, a new era, and a substantial amount of expanded unit content to the original game.
Since there are no doubt people seeing this mod for the first time as well as people who've followed this mod's progress in the past, this'll hopefully be a catch-all for anything you might be wondering.
State of the Mod
First of all - despite its only-recent introduction to ModDB, the Conversion Pack is a project that's been in development for over two years, by various different people. It was led by Teancum for the vast majority of its development; recently I've taken over as project lead after having finished the KotOR era's development. It started out as a map-pack addon to Battlefront II and developed into a veritable chimera of different mod ideas. It's been released publically twice (at beta versions 1.0 and 1.75) and semi-publically a few more times.
Right now the mod is at its 1.91 build (a closed beta build) with the intent for the next and final public release to be the 2.0 build. The release date for this 2.0 Final build is estimated to be in late September (as seen to the side). Currently all that remains are minor bugfixes; if you wish to follow along more closely with the remaining bugs, a buglist is posted here: Gametoast.com

Meet the Team
Before I mention any of the individuals who play a large part in the development of this project, it should be noted that a huge percentage of what has gone into this mod has come from smaller contributions made by many members of the Gametoast modding community as well as the TAW clan.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Star Wars Battlefront Conversion Pack. We love games like Star Wars Battlefront II that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
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.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. 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 #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
