After a long wait the release date for Open Beta 2.0 is finally announced! Check this out!

Posted by on

I am proud to announce that today, Battlefront Ultimate Commander has a release date set!


Initially
thought the mod shouldn't have released this soon. Long story short I failed the diploma I was working on and I'm, since a few weeks, homeless. I change of home every week or two weeks which is, as you can imagine, a real pain for the Mod. Plus I currently work at the Police, so the schedule is tight. Moreover my future after September 1st is very uncertain. Judging by how life is playing with me right now I decided to play the safe card and set a release date.

Which day you may ask? What better date than BUC's anniversary? BUC started two years ago with this article (tltr: Fall of the Republic became BUC). Yep already two years went by! These two years were incredible, I discovered new awesome people, created a nice little discord, released Beta 1.0, and eventually BUC earned the 8th Place at Moddb's annual mod of the year contest!

Thanks to every single great member of this small community we build through!

Ah yeah so BUC Open Beta 2.0 will be released on August 25th, in 21 days (don't ask me what hour, I don't know!). Even if it's not full with everything I want in, it will be released.

Now, into the recent and awesome work I did not show.


The key point of this article is definitely the arrival of phase 1 clone troopers!

  • Unlike other Swbf 2 mod we do not use DICE's SWBF II phase 1 helmet, this one was made, UVed and textured from scratch! Moreover you will be able to play as phase 1 clones on almost every new custom maps and a good half of the vanilla/stock maps!
  • Phase 1 clones have a large variety of randomized skins with the four classic: sergeant (green), lieutenant (blue), captain (red), and commander (yellow). And since the mod is focused on Legends/EU material/content, Phase 1 clone legions will not happen!

  • Phase 1 clones isn't the only new thing! AT-RT Drivers joined the battle! Once again helmet mesh, UVs, texture made from scratch! Same applies for the gear. Plus, the helmet beauty is only 1700 triangles.

  • Also a new muzzle flash has been added:

  • Article not finished yet! Let me present you a new clone legion made out of the Bomb Squad Clones.

  • Last but not least, I reworked and touched up the Anti-Heresy Clone Legion based on WH40k's UltraSmurf UltraMarines. Playable in Order 66 Game-Mode (hint: Jedi are an heresy...).

  • Lot more have been done, new maps (few were teased in the pics above!), lot of scripting, new sfx, weapon balance, side balance etc.

Great Looking clones, especially the Ultramarines, now we need inquisitorial storm troopers for the Empire to hunt down the surviving jedis during the ICW.

Looking good! I really like the way the P1 helmets came out. I prefer the old muzzle flashes but those wouldn't be too difficult to replace for an end user.

I'm sorry about your current situation and I hope that it'll get better really soon. :( Also, I love these new models, especially the phase 1 Clones. These models (and the ones used in Improved Sides Mod) remind me why I used to like phase 1 armour better than the phase 2 version. :)

ISM doesn't use the same helmet model as this one in BUC tho. ISM uses DICE's helmet mesh :s

Actually, I think it's not DICE's helmet.
Moddb.com
Javitolo98, one of the creators of the mod, used this helmet here and wrote that it was fanmade (it's stated in the description). I believe that he kitbashed it with the JKA Clone Trooper model which they currently use. ;)

Mr.Slavko
Mmmh I'm afraid I'm 100% sure of what I wrote above. As I compared both models and they are the exact same (DICE's helmet was reduced in term of polys to suit ISM's swbf use). I then asked Javitolo to confirm my guess and yeah he definitely confirmed they were using DICE's model. Even other modder asked HF who confirmed the fact. So yeah that's DICE mesh.

Police and changing houses frequently have nothing to do with each others don't worry. I don't have my old small apartment anymore, parents don't want me back home and that's it mainly.
