Battlefront Redux



Description:

Battlefront Redux is a mod for Star Wars Battlefront II that adds improved eras to the stock game to the Conquest game mode and new maps (in the future). The main purpose of the mod is to replicate the major battles shown in most Star Wars media (comics, movies, tv shows). Some unique features it will have are the following: mechanics of every aspect of the game changed and inspired by modern shooters, new sound effects and new models & skins. Currently, the mod is in-progress and there is no release date yet since there is too much content to cover (Don't get hyped, this mod will take years to finish). However, snapshots will be released frequently.

Planned Content:

PHASE 1: Custom sides according to battles on the default maps/Era mod.

PHASE 2: New or edited maps with new vehicles.

References:

Basically, every major battle found in Wookiepedia but the ones I will focus most of my time on will be from:

  1. Clone Wars (Episode 2, Episode 3, SWTCW(2008 TV series), SWCW(2003 TV series), Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures)
  2. Galactic Civil War (Episode 4, Episode 5, Episode 6, Rogue One, maybe SW Rebels)
  3. First Order–Resistance War (Episode 7, Episode 8, Episode 9)

Hey guys, Raigiku here! I want to share some news on the progress of the mod.

The next snapshot is taking a while to get released, sadly I don't have a release date. but we hope to get it released near the start or mid of September. The main reason on why it's taking so much is that the development team is really small, right now we have RepJunkieJr sound developer, HyugaN3ji gameplay designer and me, making it all appear in-game, porting the models, editing textures, etc; basically doing the heavy stuff. Worst of all, university takes a huge amount of my free time and depletes my "stamina". However, I recently entered a 1-month break which will last until the 13th of August, so development will be faster at least for the time being.

I just updated an article I posted long ago where I pointed out which areas we need help on. Please check it if you want to be part of the team, we desperately need a 2D artist to help us retexture units like clone troopers and a 3D artist with experience in modding the game, that way we can port all these cool models to the game and make you guys feel like you are truly in the star wars universe, where you can choose to be any character from the almost unknown ones to the most recognisable ones. If you don't possess many technical skills, don't worry, we have a few areas which are not so technical and where you can apply! All the info is in the article below.

Moddb.com

There are a ton of new heroes/villains planned for the next snapshot. From TCW characters like Ahsoka, Ki-Adi-Mundi, Barris Offee to movie ones like Kit Fisto (brand new model from TFU), Plo-Koon, Obi-Wan and Anakin from Episode 2 and much more! If any of you are modders and want to use my assets you can get them in the next 2 links: GameToast Raigiku's Assets (need to update it x( <-- It's a face). I'm a huge fan of open source and plan on releasing all of the assets that I can when I finish the mod.

Going back to the heroes/villains, I don't know in which order to implement them in the mod, so I thought it was a good idea to let you guys decide! I've created a Google form where you can vote on which hero/villain you want to see next. You can choose multiple heroes/villains if you can't decide on one in particular and the form will be updated whenever I finish implementing the most voted hero/villain or when I move on to develop the next battle. The link is below.

Docs.google.com

Since the Trello page where I put all the units is getting really cluttered up, HyugaN3ji and I have decided on making a wiki page where all the units, battles and info about the mod will be available. This way, all the information presented will be more organized and easier to process. Currently, it's in a very early stage, so it's going to be a little while until we release it to the public.

I've been thinking in setting up a discord public server, every major mod has one and I think it's a cool idea since it helps you get more involved with your fans. Let me know in the comments below if you want to see one and I'll see what I can arrange.

This mod is a very big project, it's very difficult having a very small team, dealing with stress at university and having relationship issues, sometimes I feel like giving up but then I see your support and how you want this mod, this idea, this dream of mine to become a reality. I get really motivated to keep on going and not give up, I really appreciate your comments guys and I want to say thank you. This won't end up being just another dead mod, I'll keep on fighting my inner negative self 'till we are done with the mod.

This is the end of the post, let me know if you liked reading this. I think of doing a monthly dev-blog where I go into detail about the development of the mod during the month, I hope you like the idea. Anyways, I wish you have a great day and as always "May the force be with you".

I played #3 so close before #4 came out I didnt even notice. So here's some late feedback. Visually, impressive mod. Good classes too (I don't like the grapple droid but that's just me). However there is a huuuge problem.

Its pretty much impossible to win as the clones because they can't dish out any damage. I'm lucky if I can kill 3 droids with a clip. (Specifically the DC-15 which has a ridiculous rate of fire and deals very little damage, even to geonosins.) Give the clones a damage buff on their weapons and you got yourself a near flawless mod.

P.S. I realllly would like the glowing saber trail back, it looks like a glowstick without it. At least give us an option.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely tweak damage in snapshot #5, add the glowing saber trail back along with tons of new characters and improved models. I still, don't know when I'm going to finish it since the mod is basically a one-man army lol. Expect a long time for the new snapshot. Sorry :(

We hope it gets released at the start or mid of September. It's not 100% confirmed though, but if everything goes smoothly, then snapshot 5 will probably be near completion at that date. - Raigiku
So at a estimate sometime in September

Why are there a lot of units missing for me on Geonosis?

BOG 2 right i think its because the map is incomplete and might be finished with TCW Styled clones in the next snapshot atleast thats my point of view

Yeah it showed up as Birth of the Rebellion so I did’t know it was the 2nd Battle of Geonosis. That makes a lot more sense.

I forgot to delete the "2nd Battle of Geonosis" testing era before releasing the file. That era is in incomplete and there's nothing new in it so don't play it. Birth of the Rebellion is not part of my mod, that should be from another mod. The only eras in snapshot #4 are 1st Battle of Geonosis, 1st Battle of Kamino and 1st Battle of Felucia.
