Star Wars Frontlines it's a very upgraded version of the amazing Galactic Warfare MOD for Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Adds several features from Frontlines MOD.
=== HISTORY ===
Originally created by BlackMonkey.de which was a clan from Germany which we bacame friends because Frontlines and they did lots of promotion of Frontlines around Germany and hosting Frontlines servers. When they decided to work with this amazing mod I was invited by their leader (Xiao) in 2009 to create new gametypes for the mod because they liked a lot the gametypes I created for Frontlines and would like to have new and exclusive gametypes to this mod. I proudly accepted this invite since I'm also a big Star Wars fan and would love to work with this universe.
I designed 2 gametypes at first, R2D2 as Xiao requested a game with a R2D2 droid and Shields. We started with R2D2 which I provided my ideas, with draws showing how the game would be, movement scripts (since R2D2 would not be a player in my gametype), even a video showing how would be. On that period even the R2D2 model wasn't created yet, so I used a suitcase model instead, so was needed to they finish the core of the mod first to let start my work. After several delays the mod was simply released at it in 2011 with a brand new gametype called Very Important Droid, which wasn't the R2D2 that I designed.
Then they simply closed the project, site, everything. Since I wasn't a member of BlackMonkeys I never didn't knew exactly what happened. Sadly this amazing mod was gone forever.
=== INSPIRATION ===
The main idea was create a way to play it in my LAN with my kid, wife and friends, so BOTs was mandatory since there's no fun playing with just few players, another goal was to make the gameplay less repetitive since have a very limited number of maps and gametypes, also adding several dynamic features and gameplay improvements like a full COOP mode.
With that in mind, the development of Star Wars Frontlines starded in 2014 and since then is beeing improved with several random options that changed completly the map on each round, what will give you a new experience on each time you play giving better life to the gameplay. In fact was were I pushed the idea of Forever and proved to be possible, which later with lots of improvements become the Frontlines Forever released in 2018.
I asked for the original source to Xiao back then, but he said everything was lost sadly. So I'm working with VERY limited resources since I don't have the sources, so I can't add new models, sounds, FXs or even change the menus, the only thing that I can do is with scripts using what is already loaded in the mod. That's it.
=== REBORN ===
I'm working since 2018 with COD4X bots which added the originally bot functions from Quake 3 into COD4, which made very happy in think that could be possible to have bots like the ones I did to Black Frontlines of Black Ops finally in COD4. But since work with Frontlines it's really hard because I'm on the edge of every limit of the engine, after had many weird problems with the bots I decided to work first with Star Wars since it's a much simplier code and I still have LOTS of space to work, then when it's ready I will simply port to the main project without much throuble.
But the bots became so good and so fun to play with, that I simply decided to improve a lot more the Star Wars Frontlines, fixing many stuff incomplete and adding new ones. You can take a look in details of the development in the link below:

Star Wars Frontlines was entirely created without the source code of the original Galactic Warfare MOD, and because that the changes were all made in unusual ways and are limited and was only possible by a weird combination of C, C#, batch files, Hex Editing and even PHP to make it work, and believe me, it's working great!
