Playing as the 62nd/Camo CIS sides in the Vanilla maps


Thanks to Eddy1 for asking if this was possible, prompting me to actually test it.

This is a quick lil tutorial on how to use SOME of the units in the vanilla game, its basically a side mod


  1. Open the "CCC" folder which should be in your Addon folder
  2. Go into CCC\data\_LVL_PC\SIDE and you will see a bunch of .lvl files with the faction names on them, the ones we need are cis.lvl, cisshell.lvl, rep.lvl and repshell.lvl
  3. Select these and copy them
  4. Next go into your Battlefront 2 folder and follow this directory - Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\data\_LVL_PC\SIDE
  5. Here you should see about the same files as you saw in the CCC folder, including another cis.lvl, cisshell.lvl, rep.lvl and repshell.lvl, these are the regular sides for the game, if you ever want to go back to the original units, you'll need to keep these (you could just reinstall your game though), so make a new folder in SIDE and call it something like "stock sides" or whatever you want
  6. Move the existing cis.lvl, cisshell.lvl, rep.lvl and repshell.lvl into the "stock sides" folder you just created for safe keeping
  7. Paste the cis.lvl, cisshell.lvl, rep.lvl and repshell.lvl files we copied earlier from CCC, into this SIDE folder
  8. Das it, run the game and you should notice that the clones and droids should be from YVR, they play the same too!

Of course you don't need to do this for both the CIS and REP, you could just do one, for example only using the REP files so the CIS are still original, and vice versa

NOTE 1: This was not intended to be possible, its a surprise to be a sure, but a welcome one. Therefore, not all the units show up, and Republic will only have 4 units, the Trooper, Heavy, Sniper, and Infiltrator. The CIS will have their full vanilla roster but replaced with the YVR versions

NOTE 2: The scout trooper you see in Kashyyyk and Felucia is the really early version of the 34th Scouts, you can tell because it has the old 62nd logo and uses the vanilla model

NOTE 3: The Heavy Troopers cape is light grey with yellow highlights instead of dark grey as in YVR, this is a bug, not the light grey one, but the dark grey one, it showed up as dark grey for some reason one day when making the map and I just went with it

NOTE 4 (ok last one): The 62nd Trooper's helmet resolution bug is still apparent

DOES NOT WORK WITH SPACE MAPS
