Battlefield 2'42: Redux v1.0 Release!

This mod ports BF2 maps and vehicles into BF1942. This mod still uses some vehicles from the original BF242 mod,
but most are now vehicles ported directly from BF2.

This mod features the following five maps:

1.) Dalian Plant

2.) Midnight Sun

3.) Operation Harvest

4.) Operation Road Rage

5.) Strike at Karkand


1. Commander UAV trailer for commander assets similar to BF2.
2. Full Bot support on all available maps.
3. Fixed more bugs that were present in original BF242 mod.
4. Stripped out unused assets. Old BF242 maps will NOT be compatible with this mod!
5. Ported new stationary weapons from BF2. Stationary TOW and Stinger weapons replace the old ones.
6. Wasp Carrier object (present on Dalian Plant) now have the Anti-Aircraft minigun and missle launchers present in BF2.
7. All maps now use DDS DXT1c format textures for lightmaps. This should improve game performance on low end graphics hardware.
8. Revamp of main menu to look more like BF2.
9. Rebuilt loading screen. Now looks more like BF2.
10.Replaced the "Ready" screen at the map's round start with a copy the loading screen. There is now no transition from the load screen
and the ready screen so it's even more like BF2's load screen system.
11.Menu mods to singleplayer menu enable more then 64 bots in Instant Battle mode.
No EXE hack required! Just set the slider to something above 400% to get more bots! (exe hack still required for more bots in multiplayer)
12.Replaced meshes on Anti-Tank handweapons. Now use the BF2 weapons with matching shell ejection effects.
13.Replaced all dropped kit geometries with those from BF2.
14.Mod uses Ragdoll animations. A couple animations were redone just for this mod.
15.Maps have CTF game mode. However note that currently the capture radio prompts are all in English currently as BF2 doesn't have them
localized in the MEC/China languages.
16.Made changes to ingame HUD including the ability to have more then 6 handweapons on a kit and a revamped minimap area.
17.Many other improvements/additions I can't recall at the time of writing this document. :D

This mod makes no ******* sense whatsoever why would you spend hours making a mod that is just Battlefield 2 in Battlefield 1942. This is the time when you need to actually go be a military officer and stop playing so much battlefield. you could have just played battliefield 2 or some actual mods for battliefield 1942
