Mod Description

News

Firebird is a mod I built with a balance of realism and arcade gameplay. There are no hit indicators on most hand weapons so you have to look for blood or dust to see if you hit someone. The sounds, weapon damage, bullet/rocket velocity, penetration, and explosions are much more realistic. The bots are smarter and use vehicles and stationary weapons. I released a mod previously and took many complaints as constructive criticism and came back with a much better mod. My previous mod was built with Jones customization and I couldn't make it work with custom soldiers without breaking the player animations so my new mod has been built from scratch using the BF2 unlock system with levels instead. There are many new kits and expanded teams and much more to come. There are over 100 new high-quality guns and vehicles for you to use with custom armament on planes and vehicles. I am one person so I don't have the time or motivation to make the mod smaller, the total size on disc is around 10gb with most of it being maps followed by weapons and vehicles. The detailed models and textures take up lots of disc space.

To use the unlocks you will need to download "Unlocks" and change the target and start in properties in the shortcuts to match where you installed your game and put the new BF2_unlocks.exe in your games main folder.

Because of how detailed and large these maps are you will need to restart Battlefield 2 after each level because the game doesn't unload resources and runs out of space. If you are having problems, please try restarting your game as this fixes the issues

A big thanks to the modders who created this content, and have helped teach me how to mod. PonysarusRex, PR team, AIX, Jones, Kanos, Demonfrompripiat, N@W team, Clivewell, MasterChiefRulez, SatNav, LT-Fred, Dickie, and many others. Without you, this mod wouldn't be possible.

man, I just wanted to leave this comment congratulating you on the excellent mod, and I would like to ask if you can add the helicopter Bell OH-58 Kiowa again, it would make me very happy

I never removed it. It's named us_ahe_kiowa if you would like to add it to your maps. You can also add _hellfire or _hydra to the end if you wanted it armed with either of those

Hmmm, is it possible to combine both BF2 and BF2 Special Forces? Like, weapons and stuff like that?

Nice mod - after replacing the overall mod´s ai and editing all the handheld weapons.ai files with vanilla values. Now I like it. I also added the add on "BLOOD_ENGINE" from Sniper67
Moddb.com
for all the "good guy" factions. Nice mod now, thank you very much!

I'm glad you like it now, I personally prefer a challenging match against bots but I know some people enjoy a less difficult enemy to beat. I personally like the challenge because I think it makes me a better player and I like figuring out new ways to win and that's the fun in it for me.

Yes, it seems to be a matter of taste. Being a modder also means being able to tune the game in terms of difficulty/ai to suit one´s needs. Thank you for your help to find the location of the relevant weapon ai files- that really saved me some time. :)
