This is a big side mod for the original maps in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Everything has been changed (every single stat from Wookies to V-wings). This will make Battlefront more accurate to Star Wars, more challenging, more complex, more battle-packed and more of what it should of been in general. I try to explore every possibility with side modding in SWBF2. Battlefront Project includes my redone side layout that includes hundreds of new models, re-vamped weapons interface, improved AI and improved Jedi/Sith light saber combos.
For side mods in Battlefront II. Includes: Recovered SWBFII code and models for sides. Some source code from BFP weapons and powers. "Soldier Side" contains assets for characters with some weapon models I made. "Vehicle Side" contains recovered Pandemic Vehicles and Remote Frigate Ships for space maps. "SoldierAnimationBank" has source animation sets for knife, prone, chaingun. "BFP REQ" folder and "addme" file are for loading BFP sides. You have my permission to load BFP sides in your mod maps. Not included: BF3 models, BF2 stock models, and work of other modders. Not Full Sides! Add files to your mod map side. ( You can copy a side from "Modtools\assets\sides" and put them in your XXX mod map folder "Modtools\data_XXX\Sides" to start ) Many files include my notes about code functions. I renamed things and added notes without testing the files again so there maybe some typos. Modify these files as you wish! If you release mod with BFP V.2 sides, include all credits from BFP V.2.

Source Animations (SoldierAnimationBank):
Not for SIDE folder, for mod folder "Modtools\data_ABC\Animations\SoldierAnimationBank"
*"recon", default munge output is set to the local "ALL" side, just edit munge.bat and change "ALL" to a side in your mod.
"bfp", default munge output is local "REP" side.
"gunner", default munge output is local "REP" side.
"munge_animation", the most recent program from Gametoast.com for compiling the animation files in SoldierAnimationBank.
*Note 1: Only Battlefront 1 base poses work with prone the in "Recon" animation.
**Note 2: Loading too many different animations will crash your mod.
"BFP REQ" is for modders. It has my req files that list all the names of units and vehicles you can load in your map (BFP V.2 files not included).
Option 1: Copy the sides in "Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon\BFP\data\_LVL_PC\SIDE" into your mod map addon folder.
Then load the sides and units you want from your LUA file, example:
Option 2:Load the files direct from the BFP mod in your addon folder like this:
If you load rebels from the "ALL2" side, also load the skins from the separate urban, forest, or desert sides in your LUA like this:
The "REP2" side with clones may also need skins loaded from the urban, forest, or desert sides in your LUA like this:
"addme.LUA" file shows how to use the Unofficial 1.3 SWBFII patch to add BFP CW and BFP GCW eras to your maps.
For BFP era your LUA mission scripts must be named "XXX_p_con.LUA" for clone wars and "XXX_q_con.LUA" for original gcw (Replace XXX with your 3 letter mod name).
> To use these files for SWBFII, you need to download Pandemic's Star Wars Battlefront II Modtools and read files in \Modtools\documentation\
> If you are new to modding SWBFII, Gametoast.com has the files to get started.
> To process the game files in newer versions of windows, you may need updated munge programs (because of a code glitch using "" marks in the munge path).
> Animations for BF1 males, wookies, droids, BF2 females, and heroes all use different baseposes and skeletons - to munge a new animation you need the matching basepose. Look at \Modtools\assets\Animations\SoldierAnimationBank\
> New models float on the HUD, fix with the below code in the "weapon.ODF" file under [Properties] , or use the tutorial by Gametoast.com member FragMe! >>> Gametoast.com
