An introduction to Homefront

News

What it does: Homefront is a mod dedicated to improving the gameplay of Star Wars Battlefront 2. It does this by adding custom eras to every map which will appear in the game menu as "Homefront CW" and "Homefront GCW." These eras will contain a variety of game modes which include conquest, hero assault, campaign, and a few custom game modes as well such as order 66 and a hilarious game mode which I love to call "Jar Jar's Revenge." I also hope to add space assault in the future. It features custom units, heroes, turrets, etc, better sounds, custom voices, better visuals (although perhaps not as much as seen in other mods), and it makes the game 100x more intense than the vanilla game (my friend seriously asked me if the vanilla game was this intense). You can play this mod online vanilla or with Homefront eras.

Design philosophy: My aim is make sides that improve the game without "overdoing it" in terms of custom units. Every unit should feel like it belongs in the game. Nothing weird like rebels wearing clone trooper armor. Every unit should feel like it offers something that no other unit is capable of: none should feel redundant. In total, each faction has 8-9 units, and those units will vary depending on the map you are playing to make things more asymmetrical and to reduce repetition. At times I have sacrificed game balance for the sake of making things more fun or lore friendly, although I try not to do so if it's not worth it. Feel free to call me out for anything that does not follow this philosophy, or really anything in general that you find weird or aren't a huge fan of.

Future plans: I will definitely add space assault. Maybe I will add hero assault on more maps and do xl, uber and hunt game modes. I would like to change vehicle spawns and add locals to more command posts. I hope for improved character models. Maybe i'll see if I can get the SWBF1 maps. We will see what else will happen.

Installation:

1) Install the Unofficial v1.3 patch

2) Download and extract the contents of this mod from this link: Star Wars: Homefront

3) Move the ABD folder to the addon folder where you have installed the 1.3 patch

4) That's all :)

I would like to thank the communities at Gametoast and SWBF Gamers for their tutorials, assets and advice. There is a full credits list in the readme. Enjoy the mod :)

I have a problem. I get a crash to desktop when trying to host this mod in multiplayer. Please may this mod be multiplayer compatible.

This mod is multiplayer compatible. I think that must be a different issue

Well, I discovered that "9 out of 10" maps will work just fine in multiplayer if I setup a dedicated server. Most of the maps crashed if I hosted a "server and play server". However, Mos Eisley crashes in dedicated server mode as well.

I am hosting by Lan because I have a phycial Lan Party. I did not get map crashes during loading on vanilla SWBF2 just with this mod on certain maps.

Hi, sorry if this question is redundant...

Does this mod affect space battle sides and vehicles as well?
