Map pack set on various planets, moons, and other satellites throughout our Solar System. Includes Luna, Pioneer Trails, Mars, Titan, and Venus.
TITLE: Sol Map Pack (build 10927/01)
DEVELOPERS: Frayed Wires Studios — Aaron “Marth8880” Gilbert, AQT, James “THEWULFMAN” Plummer, and Scott_W.Pilgrim
1. Run SolMapPackSetup_r1_standalone.exe and follow the on-screen instructions to install.
2. Launch Star Wars: Battlefront II and enjoy playing the first release of the Sol Map Pack!
Around the summer of 2011, Marth8880 and THEWULFMAN had an idea to create a map pack whose maps are based on locations found in our Solar System, and thus the Sol Map Pack was born. Not many maps had been released during the timespan of 2011-2014, but the project was sparked back into life with the help of AQT.
- All maps will show up in purple-colored text in the Instant Action roster.
- The Mass Effect era is only available if Mass Effect: Unification R5 is installed.
- This map pack adds 27 missions to the runtime heap if Mass Effect: Unification is installed or 20 missions if it is not.
GENERAL KNOWN ISSUES:
- Occasionally hero music won’t play at all in a single match.
- Every once and a while, if a lot of missions in a playlist have been played, a crash will occur during the loading screen of one of the maps. This issue might have some relation to Mass Effect era missions being present in the playlist, but it is ultimately unknown.
- There is a small chance that a map will have glowing terrain after loading. Restart the map in order to fix this issue.
