BF2ExpandedPoster3


MOD DESCRIPTION



What was initially conceived as a mod to introduce X1's Remnant to Battlefront 2 using assets from FRD's cancelled game gradually evolved into a general post-Endor mod. Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era strives to provide an expansion to the base game with new models, vehicles, weapons, and maps representing the different factions of that time.

With the eventual aim of covering as many factions and unique bits of content as possible, the initial release of Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era will feature four major factions:

  1. The New Republic
  2. X1's Remnant
  3. The Zsinj Dominion
  4. The Corporate Sector Authority

Additionally, a couple minor factions will be present on a select few maps and modes. These include the following:

  1. The Black Sun Crime Syndicate
  2. Mustafarian Mining Guild
  3. Felucian Natives
  4. The Banking Clan

The Post-Endor era will show up on available maps differently at this time depending on what factions are available for play. Presently, these are:

  • X1's War
  • Corporate Sector Conflict
  • The Hunt for Zsinj

Available/supported maps in the first release will include:

  • All stock maps
  • Daermor: Kon-Dragos
  • Kashyyyk: Jedi Enclave (Calrissian97)
  • Mustafar: Laboratory (Calrissian97)
  • Chandrila (GTTeancum)
  • Saleucami (GTTeancum)
  • Tatooine Dune Sea (Marvel4)

Not everything in the first release will be what I want it to be or what it should be. There are more maps I want to support, more units and heroes to add, more factions, more of everything. There will be bugs, imperfections, and components in dire need of improvement or tweaking. However, I feel it is for the best that at the least some version of the mod is made available for play at this time, as I will have little time to work on it in coming months.

Corporate Sector Conflict: Moddb.com

Minor Factions: Moddb.com


Future Plans



Should I have the time to return to this in the future, I have many wishes for the development of the mod:

  • bugfixes
  • tweaks
  • model improvements
  • gameplay improvements
  • Support for all BF1 and XBOX DLC Conversions
  • New Custom Maps
  • Pentastar Alignment, Empire of the Hand, Zann Consortium
  • And Many more

However, none of this is set in stone and is always subject to change.


Credits



Detailed credits for each mod release will be available in a text document adjacent and separate from the readme within the archive containing the mod.

With that said, a huge shoutout goes to Pandemic Studios and GameToast for making all this possible. The community has been nothing short of amazing, and the original devs created such a great game.

ALPHA v1.0.0 RELEASE

MOD DESCRIPTION


EDIT:

PSA: I've received reports of some of the AWARD Weapons not being disabled properly, so that's something I'll patch whenever I can get to the next version, but for now, I recommend users do one of the following:

1. If you have Anakin's Remaster installed, use Remaster settings to disabled AWARD weapons.
2. Create a new profile when playing on Post-Endor content that doesn't have AWARD weapons on it.

Back to the original description...

Finally, it is releasing. Something is, at least, before the Fall School semester here in the U.S. starts back up. So starting August 6th, 2020, this will be available for download:

Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era - Alpha v1.0.0


What was initially conceived as a mod to introduce X1's Remnant to Battlefront 2 using assets from FRD's cancelled game gradually evolved into a general post-Endor mod. Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era strives to provide an expansion to the base game with new models, vehicles, weapons, and maps representing the different factions of that time. I cannot stress enough, however, that there have been creative liberties taken to flesh out content using assets that already existed or were easily modified. This is for the sake of fun, and for gameplay.

With the eventual aim of covering as many factions and unique bits of content as possible, the initial release of Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era will feature four major factions:

  1. The New Republic
  2. X1's Remnant
  3. The Zsinj Dominion
  4. The Corporate Sector Authority

Additionally, a couple minor factions will be present on a select few maps and modes. These include the following:

  1. The Black Sun Crime Syndicate
  2. Mustafarian Mining Guild
  3. The Banking Clan
  4. Felucian Natives

The Post-Endor era will show up on available maps differently at this time depending on what factions are available for play. Presently, these are:

  • X1's War
  • Corporate Sector Conflict
  • The Hunt for Zsinj

Available/supported maps in the first release will include:

  • All stock land maps
  • Two space maps (select 1-Flag CTF for now, it is actually Assault. Did not change that before uploading)
  • Daermor: Kon-Dragos
  • Kashyyyk: Jedi Enclave (Calrissian97)
  • Mustafar: Laboratory (Calrissian97)
  • Chandrila (GTTeancum)
  • Saleucami (GTTeancum)
  • Tatooine Dune Sea (Marvel4)

Not everything in the first release will be what I want it to be or what it should be. There are more maps I want to support, more units and heroes to add, more factions, more of everything. There will be bugs, imperfections, and components in dire need of improvement or tweaking. However, I feel it is for the best that at the least some version of the mod is made available for play at this time, as I will have little time to work on it in coming months.

Installation



Download: Moddb.com

  1. Make sure you have the 1.3 patch or Anakin's Remaster already installed and are capable of running mods. I will not provide help with this.
  2. Download the Mod. You will get a file called BF2ExpandedPostEndor_Alpha_1.0.0.7z.
    Its SHA256 is: CAF3CC4E7FD2BEEB50E038F1762C9F1E9986F829F301C67775801D4863CDA720 in case you want to verify its integrity.
  3. You will need either 7-zip or another tool capable of extracting 7z files to open the archive.
    After opening, you will see six folders.
  4. Drag and drop zBF2ExpandedX1W and zBF2ExpandedUniverseCorpSec into your addon folder (Star Wars - Battlefront 2\GameData\addon).
    zBF2ExpandedX1W contains all X1's War content and Hunt modes and zBF2ExpandedUniverseCorpSec contains Corporate Sector and Zsinj content.
  5. Drag and drop the remaining four folders (SAL, MS1, KS3, and CHA) into your addon folder for Saleucami, Mustafar: Laboratory, Kashyyyk: Jedi Enclave, and Chandrila if you do not already have these excellent maps by Calrissian97 and Teancum installed.
  6. Start up the game and get to the battlefield!

Should I have the time to return to this in the future, I have many wishes for the development of the mod:

  • self-extracting installer

  • New Custom Maps
  • Space for the Corporate Sector/Zsinj Era

Pretty cool mod to use, it adds new units, weapons, a new death animation which is pretty good and even some cool maps. A thing that i also liked is the "New Jedi Order" era where you can also play on "Conquest" mode which is pretty cool, wish there were more mods that let you play heroes vs villains on conquest. There are some multiple issues i got while playing:
- localization is missing for all new units, weapons and even for the first custom map (it's probably not the first. It's the map where you can only play corporate and clone wars).
- On Chandrila the player's icon on the map is reversed.
- Unfortunately the mod uses vanilla options for instant action and increasing the number of units doesn't increase the total number ingame.
- All the custom maps like Chandrila have Hero Assault mode but you can only play it with "New Jedi Order" era and it's only on Chandrila, meaning you can't play that mode on other maps even if you can select it. The only exception is "Mos Eisley" and "Mygeeto" where you can play "Hero Assault" using X1 era.
- You are already aware of missing award weapons but seems it only appears in Hunt mode on "Mustafar: Laboratory", i don't have that issue on other maps/eras/modes at least (i don't have all the award weapons tho).
- Would be cool to be able to play Space Assault instead of CTF only.
- This is more a personal thing but would be great if you manage to increase the quality of the models. I'm talking about the "Empire" side both on Corporate and X1 era, the firsts seem made of plastic and are pretty weird, the seconds are ok but feel a bit low texture. My favorite unit is the broken armor empire trooper but looks like a PS1 model, please make it better i'm begging you.

I'm not sure if my message will reach the creator considering that the mod hasn't been updated since 2020 but the modder still alive uploading assets for others so there is still a chance to receive some updates.

Thanks for the feedback! Not sure what you mean by the broken armor empire trooper, but I assume you mean the Spoiled Clone, in which case that's just what the model rip from the PSP game (ES) looks like

As for the plastic look on other models, it's aggressive specular, looks worse on lower lighting settings, but in any case should be toned down if I return to this

Localization missing is because this was one of my first mod projects and I only localized it for English copies of the game, other languages have no entries

Always happy to hear that an old mod may return. Yes i meant the "Spoiled Clone" from ES. As a first mod, it's amazing, nice job.

While I REALLY LOVE this, some things:

Not localised, and the weird different angle is kinda destroying the vibe...

But you did so well!

Thanks!

Re: localization, like a lot of other mods, this is only localized for English. Fix is simple but tedious to make a new core.lvl, although I'm happy to share the mod folder with anyone who'd like to do that

Re: camera angle; was a big fan of Battlefront 1035 at the time I made this so tried to emulate it, in retrospect I get why people don't like it but I'm still partial to it. It's defined in the unit .ODFs so again, a simple but tedious change to make.
