About the mod


The total conversion modification Battlefield 1918 (or BF1918 for short) takes Battlefield 1942 into a whole new scenario, the first world war. Next to historically correct equipments and vehicles, we recreated the atmosphere of these WW1 battlefields as close as we can, keeping in mind the game we are working with. To achieve this, we have drastically changed the gameplay from the original game like so that you must now rely on teamwork, artillery, trenches and slow vehicles.

Battlefield 1918 combines fun with historical correctness, gaming with history, the memory of one of the most terrifying wars mankind has ever known, with fun had by people over the internet. Next to the battles fought on the Western front between mostly the Germans, the British and the French, wealso cover other scenarios, such as the Turkish battlefields at Gallipoli, the Eastern front where Germany and Austria-Hungaria fought against Russia, the Italian front and lately the battles in Africa. Next to land- and airbattles using historic weapons and vehicles, we also included the naval aspect of WW1 in a broad spectrum, as this was the time in which the great battleships still were the absolute rulers of the seas.This mod focus on Multiplayer, but has also Singleplayersupport.

For a lot more detailed overview we're very proud to gratefully present a work of our former member Fritz_Kempf aka Sniper-Snoop who has put countless hours of efforts into a very detailed and informative wiki entry at forumeerstewereldoorlog.nl which contains a lot of additional informations about this modification and it's content. We recommend it very much to anybody who not only wants to know something about the mod itself but also it's historical background - though it's written in Dutch the linked translator will give you the possibilty to gain all of the knowledge included. Please note that it's currently in a pre 3.1 state as our former member sadly had to retire from developing due to a lack of time.

Announcing V3.3b!

News 5 comments

Greetings everyone and welcome to a news update regarding Battlefield 1918, as we of the Battlefield 1918 Development Team are happy to formally announce V3.3b as well as some of the new features it will include. Many may wonder what this new build will provide, so first all us to present a new faction that will be added to the mod, the IMRO or Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization.

IMRO Recon

IMRO Regular

First founded as a militant independence movement in 1893 by mainly Bulgarians, by World War I the IMRO was supported by the Bulgarian government and became notorious for their raids. Of course, given the guerilla warfare nature of the IMRO it should be no surprise to players that this faction will mainly be focused on raids with mostly infantry and some cavalry support. In addition players may also expect a new map for the faction and that brings us to one of the new maps in V3.3b, namely Valandovo.

Valandovo 01

Valandovo 02

Historically a large raid by the IMRO against a key Serbian railroad on April 2nd, 1915. This map will see the IMRO raid multiple Serbian positions with the main goal being the destruction of the railroad bridge. A task that IMRO players would find much easier if they manage to capture some Serbian artillery during the fight. Of course this is not the only new map from the Serbian front that players can expect to see, with another map worth noting being Gucevo.

Gucevo 01

Gucevo 02

Fought as part of the larger Battle of Drina in the Autumn of 1914, Gucevo become notable for being one of the first battles of the war to become characterized by it's Trench Warfare nature. In this case the trenches being especially close to one another. As such our players, whether they be for the Serbians or the Austro-Hungarians, will find this map to have particularly hectic fighting, with grenades and dynamite really becoming effective tools of war. Speaking of tools of war, let's move on to some of the new vehicles players may be excited to see, the first being the Blériot XI spotter plane.

Blriot XI

A pre-war design that saw extensive use in the early days of the war, this aircraft will offer players the ability to call upon offboard artillery strikes to destroy enemy positions. While this aircraft may not have any real means of defending itself, it fortunately will be mainly on maps that predate effective fighter planes. That said, let's now move onto a vehicle that among the best armed in the entire mod, namely the mighty K-Wagen!

K Wagen

An experimental Super Heavy Tank design from Germany, the K-Wagen was not ready by war's end, although 2 were almost completed. That of course hasn't stopped players from wanting to have a chance at driving one and thus the K-Wagen will make an appearance on the Battle of the Giants map, where its 4 cannons and 7 machine guns will surely come in handy. With a crew capacity of 11, the K-Wagen is a mighty vehicle that should become an invaluable centerpiece on secret weapons maps.

There are of course more vehicles and maps that will be shown in the coming news updates in greater detail; however, for the time being here is a trailer for the new update. We hope it will be satisfactory to our long time fans and get you all excited for what else our mod will provide:

With all this said and done, the Battlefield 1918 Development Team would like to wish everyone a good day, and that we hope to see you all again soon!

Thank you for this amazing mod and I hope you continue the great work! I have a question related to the iron sights, I simply don't have them. I tried to look through and see if I'm missing something, but I don't see anything. I'm pressing mouse 2 and all it does is zoom like the vanilla BF1942. I tried to see if it was another control, but it doesn't seem to be the case. Any info is greatly appreciated

The iron sights function is only implemented in some LMGs, like the Lewis, MG 08 and the Benet-Mercie (and Chauchat, if i´m not wrong).

Unfortunately, rifles and pistols still do not have this function. Fingers crossed that future versions of the mod have this possibility included for most (if not all) guns.

Is it possible to add more maps to instant battle involving askaris? Like Battle of Tanga or Sanaga river. There are a lot of so good maps in this mod which are totally useless if you are alone in the map. Other hand there is only your mod, which portrays colonial troops and their battles, so it would be nice to add those two maps to be playable with bots. :) I love yor mod, keep up the good work!

BF1918 desperately needs the option to add more bots! All these great maps feel empty with the standard number. I have been able to make more bots work in several other mods, but not BF1918 or EOD. If anyone knows how, please let me know. And please incorporate more bots in the next update!

Just follow the tutorial made by subzer096 - Youtube.com.

Works like a charm (I say it because I've used it myself and I attest that it works) and it´s easy. So don´t worry.

As observation u might have problem finding the Winrfa program. My recommendation is to download the MDT - Modder Development Tool - for Battlefield 42 (which u can find here on Moddb), which comes with the Winrfa tool.

I hope it helps and stay safe :)

* One more singleplayer-mode crash report :

The Map "BattleAxe 1918" in this BF1918 mod,

it always encounters "Crash back to DeskTop" crashing-error after entering SinglePlayer/COOP mode with bots for 2-3 minutes AT EVERYTIME,

Please fix the SinglePlayer-mode of "BattleAxe1918" map, thanks !

So, this is an old problem of BF1918.

I remember that since the first version of this map with bots, in version 3.0 (or v 3.1, maybe ?) of the mod, the BattleAxe 1918 causes a CTD.

If I remember correctly, about 8-9 years ago, in the mod v 3.1, I tried to investigate what caused the crash. It was something related to the interaction of the bots with the map objects (tanks, planes, mg nests,etc). Now, what specifically cause the CTD (because it had a specific object causing it), I don't remember exactly.

Anyway, I tried to fix the problem myself, but due to my limited coding knowledge (which is close to null), I couldn't solve it. I tried in every possible way, but regardless of my efforts, always that CTD, on average between 2 to 5 minutes after starting the match.

Maybe someone from the mod development team can help you (and us). I just came here to clarify that this is an old problem, and not just smt related to the current version.

Thank You very much, Dear developers, for the clarification and upcoming solution ! :-D

To be honest, we ourselves do not fully know why the map crashes. There are errors that do not even give a hint of the cause of the crash. And sometimes you can play a full-fledged game without a single crash. We assume that the problem is either with the artillery batteries or with the aircraft. We will try to solve this by the next patch.
