MW Mod 2.0 is now released!
With over 2 years of spare time development, we are pleased to announce the completion and release of MW Mod 2.0 for World in Conflict.
MW Mod 2.0 brings World in Conflict to "Battlefield-style" modern combat, unleashing the maximum potential of this real-time tactics game.
Also new to the 2.0 release is our new Flexible Interceptor (FLINT) Missile Simulator system, where various homing missiles have been reconstructed to behave authentically to real life behavior.
NOTE: This mod requires your World in Conflict to be patched to version 18.104.22.168. or it will not work.
To patch your game, simply start the game, sign into multiplayer, and it will detect that your game needs patched and update your game.
Use these links to download the mod. Regardless of what version of the mod you have you will need to download both the mod and the map pack.
Just click on your Operating System and it will take you to the download.
If you want to manually install the mod, you can downloads these files. This will also allow the mod to work with Windows XP, although this is not officially supported by us.
NOTE: If you downloaded Map Pack from Release Candidate (RC) 1, you don't need to download it again!
To get the map pack just click whichever version of World in Conflict you use. If you are unsure, check the shortcut that you use to start world in conflict (right click it and go to properties) or browse to program files and check where World in Conflict is installed.
A Word About System Requirements
WiC MW Mod requires higher-end system than which is specified on World in Conflict system requirements.
At minimum, your system (including video card) must maintain 35 frames per second or higher. Below 35 fps, numerous homing projectiles may miss their targets or fail to perform altogether. Try lowering your graphics settings if you cannot achieve enough frame rate.
World in Conflict and MW Mod both support multi-threading. It's recommended for your system to have quad-core or better CPU, at minimum of a dual-core processor.
If you have not read our tutorials yet, we highly recommend that you do. The gameplay is significantly different from un-modded World in Conflict in many aspects and there may be a steep learning curve if you do not read these tutorials.
Here are the tutorials:

- Air Role Guide Part I: The Basics
- Air Role Guide Part II: Surviving from SAMs
- Air Role Guide Part III: Attack Helicopters for Experts

New Features and Improvements
- Dropped installer support for Windows XP.
- Improved low altitude handling of attack helicopters. Units do not crash as often.
- Optimized and reprogrammed various bot AI scripts.
- AI air players now share targeting data and coordinate attacks between each other.
- Improved scripting of AI air players.
- Fixed a bug where AI armor players constantly targeted friendly occupied buildings with APFSDS rounds.
- Fixed a bug where AI air players attacked friendly infantry players with rockets.
- Optimized Graphics and EX3D Assets for better performance
- Patriot Weapons Control Computer (WCC) 3.1 update (from 3.0 in RC1) for US MIM-104 Patriot IADS. Bug fixes and optimization during saturation air & missile attacks.
- S-300 SAM Software update. Fixed a bug where 64N6 radar script "locked up" during TBM attack and would no longer authorize any further missile launches.
- AN/APG-78 Longbow Weapon System 2.0 update (from 1.5 in RC1) for US AH-64D Attack Helicopter for Experts. Program has been upgraded to support FLINT missile system.
- Joint Targeting & Designation System (JTDS) 1.0. The first implementation toward "network centric warfare." Units using FLINT munitions share target engagement and status data between each other to increase battlefield awareness and firepower. JTDS also allows other units, such as infantry to "lase" targets for air players and air-launched munitions. Certain AI bot players now use JTDS to improve their skills.
- Re-programmed Active Protection System (APS). APS now runs through 3 phases when faced with advanced ATGMs. Initial phase is detection & alerting only and system will begin tracking the missile. As missile closes in, system will move to 2nd phase and auto-release smoke screen in an attempt to jam the missile. If the missile is still incoming, during last moment, APS will move to third phase and intercept the missile with a hard-kill countermeasure.
- Flexible Interceptor (FLINT) Missile Simulation Software 1.0. FLINT provides high-fidelity simulation of numerous guided missiles and munitions for Real Time Strategy (RTS) games.
- (FLINT) Proportional Navigation guidance for homing missiles. Certain missiles now lead their targets rather than chasing after them (lead-pursuit guidance).
- (FLINT) Inertial Navigation System (INS) Module for homing missiles. Certain missiles can now provide auto-pilot guidance (i.e. Hellfire, AIM-9X) to extend their engagement range. Course corrections can be received from launch platform over data-link to "correct" inertial drift.
- (FLINT) Passive & Active Terminal Guidance Module for FLINT Missile Simulator. Used by heat seeking and "fire and forget" missiles employing active radar seekers.
- (FLINT) Semi-Active Terminal Guidance Module for FLINT Missile Simulator. Used by semi-active laser and radar homing missiles. When fired, the illuminator (i.e. helicopter, X-band radar, or an infantry with laser designator) must have a valid line of fire to the target while guiding the missile.
- (FLINT) Beam-riding Guidance Module for FLINT Missile Simulator. When fired, your helicopter calculates the constant-bearing/lead-collision path and projects an invisible beam to desired intercept direction.
- The missile flies inside this beam, thereby "riding the beam." Air player *MUST MAINTAIN THE BEAM* until target impact. If your missile flies out of the beam, guidance will be lost.
- Note: Beam-riding missiles cannot be fooled by smoke screen, as missile does not lock onto anything (it simply rides inside the projected beam). However, smoking up the tank and moving inside the smoke, will fool the fire control computer of launch platform, as it cannot track you anymore. Staying in the smoke and not moving will lead to successful missile hit however.
