Set in an alternative history universe in which the grand European empires of the early modern era never fell. With almost the entire planet dominated by these empires, Stormaktstiden takes place between the years 2017-2021, and focuses on the 'Second Great Northern War' between the Swedish and Russian Empires as well as their respective allies.

Welcome to the second installment of monthly development updates for this mod page. After a short Christmas/New Years break from modding, the team is back at work! Due to the lack of recent work, we only have a few new things to show you, but rest assured we have lots more to come throughout the rest of 2018.

Welcome to the second installment of monthly development updates for this mod page. After a short Christmas/New Years break from modding, the team is back at work! Due to the lack of recent work, we only have a few new things to show you, but rest assured we have lots more to come throughout the rest of 2018.


Swedish Trench Knife

The new melee weapon for the Swedish Empire faction: the Trench Knife. A brutal yet very effective combination of a combat knife and a knuckle duster. This was a Christmas surprise from illness88 who did an incredible job as always modelling and texturing this weapon.


The very talented TUERIX is also helping us great this beautiful model into the game with an all new set of animations! (work in progress)

Automatgevär m/86 Finally In-game!

The Ag m/86 assault rifle for the Swedish Empire faction is finally in-game thanks to these brilliant animations by Develop013. Model and texture by illness88. Sounds and concept by NinjaTheCat.



Stormaktstiden Lore

I've also started a Google Docs folder containing stuff about the lore surrounding the world of Stormaktstiden including nation profiles, key people, battles, wars etc. It's very rough at the moment and isn't really that fleshed out, but whenever I get the time or the inspiration, I will add and edit new documents, so if you check from time-to-time it might have new stuff. Also feel free to suggest new additions, just PM me (NinjaTheCat) with your ideas.

Sorry it was just a short one, but future updates will have a lot more content to show you guys! Thanks again for all your continued support!

Wow amazing to see it in action! Develop013 animated our Arisaka Type 99 recently for BFKorea and it is some impressive work too like this! Man I really love how the sights look on this gun! Great job to everybody involved with the creation of the Automatgevär m/86!

I wish more people did alternate history/timeline mods it is sorely lacking!

Develop013 is definitely very good at what he does! And I couldn't agree more, alternate histories are such an interesting concept, I too wish more made mods and games based in them. To be fair it has taken a lot of research to actually come up with an entire alternate Earth starting at 1709 and going all the way to 2021, everything has to be consistent and link together somehow. Perhaps such time consuming stuff is the reason we are lacking, which is a fair enough reason. As someone who studies music at university instead of a really difficult academic subject and currently is unemployed, I have way too much free time than I probably should have to write all this stuff.

I agree on the alternate history/timelines being sorely lacking in the BF2 modding community.

nice work with the automatgevär m/86, i would like to se some swedish aircrafts in this mod such as gripen, tunnan or my personal favorite saab 105. I eagerly wait for the release of this mod. ps AIX has both draken and viggen

All good suggestions, but sorry the real-world Swedish air craft don't exist in this alternate universe. The main fighter for the Swedish faction I've designed the concept for is a rather similar design to that of the prototype WW2 Ho 229
