Israeli Defense Force: Fight for Independence is a Total Conversion modification for the PC game Battlefield 2 (A.K.A. BF2). What we aim to achieve with this mod is to immerse the player into the historic wars involving Israel, Syria, Egypt, and Jordan, which are the 6-Day War, the War of Attrition, and the Yom Kippur War. The player will be able to play as a common soldier, crewmember, or pilot in these wars. The mod will feature historically accurate equipment such as the famous Russian AK-47, the fearsome SO-4050 bomber, the menacing IS3 and M48 tanks, and much, much more. Also, the maps will recreate actual battles that happened in these wars, to complete a historically-accurate and immersive modification. IDF:FFI is also a member of the acclaimed cooperative gaming studio Black Sand Studios.
In this update we have something very specail to share with you. We have our first orginal IDF:FFI game music to share! It was created by one of our newest mod team members Jeremy Aikens. So we now have our very own sound designer and audio engineer. Jeremy is a USAF and Army veteran, 17 years working in sound at home. He is a huge fan of IDF for years, and honored to be able to lend a hand in development. Here is a sample of what Jeremy has created for our mod.
Jeremy is created the music tracks from original material and some samples. He is trying to get a big, wide cinematic sound to fit the game. He is also creating some new sound effects for us to use in our mod. The sound effects are almost entirely sourced from real world combat use, as is most of the radio chatter. We are trying to go for as much realism as possible, but it's a very in depth and time consuming process. He has been doing a great job so far. So listend to the sample music tracks he has created so far and let us know what you think!
