ALPHA v1.0.0 RELEASE
PSA: I've received reports of some of the AWARD Weapons not being disabled properly, so that's something I'll patch whenever I can get to the next version, but for now, I recommend users do one of the following:
1. If you have Anakin's Remaster installed, use Remaster settings to disabled AWARD weapons.
2. Create a new profile when playing on Post-Endor content that doesn't have AWARD weapons on it.
Back to the original description...
Finally, it is releasing. Something is, at least, before the Fall School semester here in the U.S. starts back up. So starting August 6th, 2020, this will be available for download:
What was initially conceived as a mod to introduce X1's Remnant to Battlefront 2 using assets from FRD's cancelled game gradually evolved into a general post-Endor mod. Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era strives to provide an expansion to the base game with new models, vehicles, weapons, and maps representing the different factions of that time. I cannot stress enough, however, that there have been creative liberties taken to flesh out content using assets that already existed or were easily modified. This is for the sake of fun, and for gameplay.
With the eventual aim of covering as many factions and unique bits of content as possible, the initial release of Battlefront II: Expanded - The Post-Endor Era will feature four major factions:
- The New Republic
- X1's Remnant
- The Zsinj Dominion
- The Corporate Sector Authority
Additionally, a couple minor factions will be present on a select few maps and modes. These include the following:
- The Black Sun Crime Syndicate
- Mustafarian Mining Guild
- The Banking Clan
- Felucian Natives
The Post-Endor era will show up on available maps differently at this time depending on what factions are available for play. Presently, these are:
- X1's War
- Corporate Sector Conflict
- The Hunt for Zsinj
Available/supported maps in the first release will include:
- All stock land maps
- Two space maps (select 1-Flag CTF for now, it is actually Assault. Did not change that before uploading)
- Daermor: Kon-Dragos
- Kashyyyk: Jedi Enclave (Calrissian97)
- Mustafar: Laboratory (Calrissian97)
- Chandrila (GTTeancum)
- Saleucami (GTTeancum)
- Tatooine Dune Sea (Marvel4)
Not everything in the first release will be what I want it to be or what it should be. There are more maps I want to support, more units and heroes to add, more factions, more of everything. There will be bugs, imperfections, and components in dire need of improvement or tweaking. However, I feel it is for the best that at the least some version of the mod is made available for play at this time, as I will have little time to work on it in coming months.

- Make sure you have the 1.3 patch or Anakin's Remaster already installed and are capable of running mods. I will not provide help with this.
- Download the Mod. You will get a file called BF2ExpandedPostEndor_Alpha_220.127.116.11z.
Its SHA256 is: CAF3CC4E7FD2BEEB50E038F1762C9F1E9986F829F301C67775801D4863CDA720 in case you want to verify its integrity.
- You will need either 7-zip or another tool capable of extracting 7z files to open the archive.
After opening, you will see six folders.
- Drag and drop zBF2ExpandedX1W and zBF2ExpandedUniverseCorpSec into your addon folder (Star Wars - Battlefront 2\GameData\addon).
zBF2ExpandedX1W contains all X1's War content and Hunt modes and zBF2ExpandedUniverseCorpSec contains Corporate Sector and Zsinj content.
- Drag and drop the remaining four folders (SAL, MS1, KS3, and CHA) into your addon folder for Saleucami, Mustafar: Laboratory, Kashyyyk: Jedi Enclave, and Chandrila if you do not already have these excellent maps by Calrissian97 and Teancum installed.
- Start up the game and get to the battlefield!
Should I have the time to return to this in the future, I have many wishes for the development of the mod:
- self-extracting installer
- bugfixes, tweaks, model improvements, gameplay improvements
- Support for all BF1 and XBOX DLC Conversions
- New Custom Maps
- Space for the Corporate Sector/Zsinj Era
- Expanding the Black Sun
- More Hunt Modes
- Pentastar Alignment, Empire of the Hand, Zann Consortium
- And many more
However, none of this is set in stone and is always subject to change.
This list is extensive, and because of that, I may have missed some people. Please, please, please, if you haven't been credited properly or you know someone who hasn't been credited properly, contact me and let me know so I can at least update the credits on the ModDB page, as well as the next release's readme.
