File Description

Star Wars Mod v2.0 is a total conversion mod for Aliens vs Predator 2. It is easily the biggest mod for AvP2 (as of time of release) in that in changes over 5,000 files and overhauls nearly the entire look and feel of the game. 

The mod began as a sound and music pack, but I kept building upon it until it became the massive total conversion that it is now. The primary theme for the mod is the original trilogy and expanded universe (pre-Disney). 

This mod is completely client side as there are no gameplay changes at all. This is an intentional design choice as it was made to work on any multiplayer server that isn't blocking skins, which should be 99% of them. The only exception to this rule are the multiplayer custom maps, as all players will need the maps in order to play them. These maps are already included in UMP2 for those who have it already. 

Furthermore, this mod will overhaul the game in both singleplayer and multiplayer. The most dramatic change that players will immediately notice is that everything looks and sounds different. While many players will use this mod in multiplayer, I recommend replaying the singleplayer campaigns as well for a new experience. I can guarantee that players will find new surprises in their playthroughs. 

Enjoy! 

Remember! The force will be with you, always.

2) General Info:

Zip contents: SW_MOD2.rez and README.rtf.

Version: 2.0
New textures: Yes
New sounds: Yes
New music: Yes
New maps: Yes
New models: Yes
New everything: Yes

This mod is designed for Aliens vs Predator 2 version 1.0.9.6.

Known bugs:

1) The Death Star looks upside down in the intro, but then looks correct in the outro. Think of it as the verloc being upside down instead. Not a glitch, just the way the cutscene was designed.

2) Some cultists (blue poc guards) will sometimes wear a stormtrooper helmet in singleplayer. This happens because I swapped the poc guard helmet to a stormtrooper helmet and the orange poc guards are stormtroopers. Both the cultists and stormtroopers use the same character model. I didn't want all the cultists to be stormtroopers and I didn't have enough audio lines to replace all the cultist dialogue with stormtrooper dialogue. However, I did have enough audio lines to replace the dialogue of the cultists wearing the stormtrooper helmets.

3) Jaden Korr (Johnson character) levitates about 2 feet off the ground. Jaden will look like she's walking on air, although the model works completely correct. It's just that the Tomika model used to replace Johnson is a lot shorter in height. She is a Jedi, so think of her using some force power to levitate.

4) The first two Predator campaign missions were retextured to look like Hoth. The alien trees remain due to me not being able to edit the map itself. While I could have made them snow covered to match the rest of the map, then they would appear like that on other maps like dm_compound. I chose to take priority with dm_compound and leave the trees looking green and full of life. Unfortunately, it is one or the other. Try to imagine that these trees are special alien trees that can survive cold weather.

5) Due to Star Wars Mod v2.0 retexturing nearly the whole game, it will also retexture some parts of the Star Wars custom maps that were included in v1.0 of the mod. The authors of these maps didn't know I would be rexturing all the maps when I was making v1.0 (neither did I) so they used a few default AvP2 textures. If you wish to see the maps as they were originally designed, please replay v1.0 of the mod. It can also be downloaded from my website.

6) Those using the master server patch 2.4 aka msp 2.4 (current version at the time of this mod's release) may encounter the game crashing while navigating menus or loading in-game text. I noticed this only when filtering to msp mod's new game modes. The msp mod has its own cres.dll with new string tables that are not in AvP2 1.0.9.6. 

To make Star Wars Mod v2.0 compatible with MSP 2.4, download my Star Wars Mod - MSP 2.4 Patch and run it after Star Wars Mod v2.0 in your AvP2 command line.

This patch I made will fix all compatibility issues with MSP 2.4. However, if the msp mod gets new updates in future with edits to its cres.dll, there may be new crashing. The authors of MSP have informed me that they plan to fix their mod to no longer break compatibility with other mods in future MSP releases. Once this happens, my MSP patch will no longer be needed.

(If you find any others, please tell me)

3) Construction Info:

Tools used: DEdit, ModelEdit, Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, All Sound Recorder XP/All Sound Editor, dBpowerAMP, WavePad Sound Editor, ResHacker, Fraps and Bandicam.

Base: Star Wars Mod v1.0.

Resources: Textures and sounds from the games Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight 3 Jedi Academy, Star Wars Movies Ep. 1 through 6 and random images the Star Wars universe. Many sounds from https://www.sounds-resource.com were also used. The rest was made from scratch using promotional images from the films and references (memory and expanded universe). As you can see I tried to keep it as authentic as possible. I avoided anything to do with Disney Star Wars which I don't consider canon.

Construction time:

Short answer: On and off over the course of 13 years after version one of the mod was released.

Detailed answer:

	Version one of the mod started in late October 2004 and was completely finished in April 2006. However, I barely worked on anything but the sounds from October to January, and only worked on weapon skins from January to March. I worked on it very little until Ep.3's release to get more ideas and resources. About 75% of the mod was made in-between mid-May 2005 and August 2005. Also a lot of time was used to make the maps and testing. While the mod was 100% complete in August 2005, the map and models were not fully completed until April 2006.
	Version two originally wasn't intended to be a v2.0 but an add-on for v1.0. I started experimenting with retexturing the multiplayer maps (dm_compound and dm_leadworks) into Star Wars maps during the end of v1.0's development in 2006. In 2007 I started to also convert dm_alesserfate and other maps. From here it is mostly a blur as I would periodically stop and resume progress on the mod. I eventually realized that this add-on would cover retexturing all the maps and be a v2.0 of the mod, not merely an add-on. During some years of the mod's development, I would spend just one month working on it. In other years I didn't work on it at all due to being busy or wanting to work on other projects. I was burned out from working on it many times as there were thousands of files that needed to be changed and the process was very grueling. In May 2018 the mod was about 60% done and I decided to complete it without taking another break. I winded up expanding what I originally set out to do with the mod (just like I did with v1.0) by trying to change everything that I could that would still coincide with the Star Wars universe and remain a client side mod. The mod was 99.9% complete in January of 2019.
	At this point I knew I wanted to add a stormtrooper, but I needed a break as I was extremely burnt out. After a few months, I figured out how to add a stormtrooper to the mod. Once I did so, I realized other things I could change to benefit the stormtrooper's addition, including a few new ideas as well. This extended development up to 12/07/19 when the mod was finally 100% and released.


Date Built: 12/07/19

E) Maps:

F) Worldtextures:

1) Retextured all singleplayer and multiplayer AvP2 maps.
	a) Nearly all maps should appear 99% overhauled with the following exceptions:
		- Alien hives remain alien hives.
		- Infested areas (areas with alien goo) remain the same.
		- A few default signs remain because I had nothing else to replace them with.
			- I replaced most of them though.
		- A few keypad/control panels or other miscellaneous default textures remain.
			- Some textures are cropped and mixed around on multiple maps.
			- Changing some of these would mess things up.
		- A few default textures remain because it makes no sense to change them.
	b) Upgraded the skyboxes. 
		- Some v1.0 skyboxes are gone.
	c) There are easter eggs on some textures.
2) Primal hunt multiplayer maps will also be overhauled about 99% except for dm_predator.
3) Any custom map using default AvP2 textures will also be overhauled.

This is a small entry here in this changelog, but this makes up the majority of the changes in this mod. Keep in mind that this changes 2,200+ textures in the game alone.

The following is a rough guide of what themes each AvP2 and Primal Hunt map was converted into. Note that hybrid maps are a mix of themes, some of which aren't used on other maps.

	a) Singleplayer version has the helmet pop off the npc's head when killed.
		- This was done as a workaround to not lose cultist skins.
		- The cultists share the same player model as the stormtrooper.
		- Some cultists wear the stormtrooper helmet, but most don't wear it.
23) Count Dooku (Ivan) is gone and replaced with Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker).

v1.0

A) Menus:
1) New splash + splash sound.
2) New Menus depicting mostly Vader in Ep.5 - Including new animated Alien, Marine, and Predator singleplayer menus. The menus should look and feel more cinematic now.
3) Battle Of The Heros, Vader Defeats Luke, Battle Of Endor 2, and Imperial March themes used on the menus.
4) The Harrison character on the singleplayer menu has been skinned to look like Luke Skywalker.
5) Many new text changes in the menus from the opening menu, to the difficulty select, to option settings and to player select.
6) New custom level/loading screen background.
7) New loading menus.
8) New "You were killed!" or "Game Over" menu backgrounds.
9) New in-game credits.

B) Huds:
1) New Marine Hud
2) New Predator Hud
3) New Exosuit Hud

C) Music:
1) All and I mean ALL of AvP2's music has been changed to Star Wars Music from the 6 episodes. I selected only the best (most suitable) music from the movies since there wasnt enough to use them all. Alien music is mostly taken from Ep.1 and 2., Predator Music is mostly from Ep. 2 and 3, and Marine/Corp music is mostly taken from Ep. 4, 5, and 6. I carefully edited all the music to provide looping and to give each of the three species a different mood or emotion during gameplay. The music files should also suit all custom levels as well. Humans should feel like they're in an Empire era, aliens in a Republic era, and preds in-betweeen the two time periods. Note that the music files arent cheap and most are longer than the original AvP2 music. Furthermore the new music should support most (mainly all) custom levels at the time of this release, pretty well.

1) New bar ambient sound of the cantina theme.
2) New Alien Sounds
	a) Facehugger sounds of Ewoks.
	b) Chestburster sounds of Jawas.

	a) Standard Pred sounds of Wampas.
	b) Heavy Pred Sounds of Jabba the Hutt.
	c) Light Pred sounds of the Sarlacc Pitt and Rhino.
	d) Assault Pred sounds of Jabba's Pig Guards.
	e) Some random sounds of Tusken Raiders, Bossyk, and Chewbacca as well.
5) New Human Sounds
	a) Jump land sound.
	b) All male sounds changed except for two.
		- death, pain, inspect, attack, cower, retreat, and cocooned sounds changed.
	c) Nearly all female sounds changed as well.
6) A few new event sounds.
7) New Impact sounds.
	a) Bullet impacts now sound like laser bolt impacts.
	b) Spear Gun impact changed to a bowcaster impact sound.

	- Alesserfate has Alderann and the Death Star in the skybox. It should feel as if you're in-between the two as the Death Star is positioning itself for an attack.
          - Lucifer's Fate has Kashyyyk and Mustafar in the skybox.
2) Intro and Outro cutscenes now have the 2nd Death Star and the solar system from Ep.5.

I) Skins:
1) New attachment textures for helmets, hats, smartgunner, and shoulder lamp.
2) New powerup skins for some weapon pickups, ammo pickups, armor, and health. The health pickup also uses a new model of a bacta tank as in many Star Wars games. 
3) Various props skinned including ammoboxes, motion tracker, and uniforms to match character skins.
4) New SFX skins
	a) Debris textures for muzzle flares and effects. Synth guts are also human like now.
	b) Rockets, grenades, and flares skinned black to match guns. Energy bolt is now green.
	c) New bullet shell textures.
5) All marine weapons/tools skinned to match weapons used by the Rebel Alliance, Empire, and Republic.
	- Except for the flamethrower which uses Boba Fett flamethrower textures, and the sniper rifle which is based on the sniper rifle in the game Star Wars Bounty Hunter.
          - The knife, pistol, and pulse rifle use a custom models to make them appear as a lightsaber, blaster, and a blaster rifle in 3rd person view.
6) All predator weapons/gear skinned. I know they look nothing like anything in the movies, but the weapon models look nothing like anything in the movies. Therefore I tried to give some of the weapons a matching look of custom bounty hunter gear and somewhat tie it in to the green laser fire by the Empire. It was either this or nothing for the predators since this is mostly a human mod.
          - However, the spear and speargun use custom models to make them appear as a Sith scepter and a bowcaster in 3rd person view.
7) All human characters skinned for both singleplayer and multiplayer. The guard skin was the only skin not made by myself, as it was made by Artalavista. Also note that many of the skins use model changes and the Tavion character uses Coty's "Tomika's Daughter" model. I also added hair, ears, skin, and nails, to many skins/models that didn't have them originally. Probably only the modders and skinners will notice all the little changes though. Anyways, here is a little list for those who want to know who's who:

J) Vision Mode Skins:
1) Heat Vision - All humans skinned to look like the vision mode textures in Zem's Sniper Rifle. (In Ep. 2)
2) Electro Vision - All aliens skinned to appear like the vision mode textures in Zem's binoculars. (Ep.2 as well) Although this one isnt as exact as the heatvision since it would look messed up in AvP2 if made it so.
	- Humans skinned to preserve character skins in this mode as well.
3) Nav Vision/Pred Tech Vision - All humans are skinned in this vision mode also. However I made this one up by myself just to keep characters like Obi-Wan to stay looking like Obi-Wan and not Ichiro. Characters look jelly like and hi-tech in this vision mode. Looks cool anyway.

K) Misc Changes:
1) New multiplayer icon for Server Control (Star) = Yoda
2) "You were kicked from the server" changed. I'll let you see this yourself.
3) A bunch of multiplayer messages changed to various quotes from the movies. I made one or two up for laughs.
4) A few mission objectives changed to support the new skins.
5) Marines are labeled as Jedi, Iron Bears as Sith, Weyland Yutani employees as the Empire and Dark Force users, and Predators as Bounty Hunters. This is actually an important change in the mod, but couldnt find anywhere else to state it.
6) I chose to use only Jedi and Sith for the multiplayer skins, since they are mainly the most important characters.

A) Extract or copy the SW_MOD2.rez from the .zip and place it in your custom folder in your Alien Versus Predator 2 directory. If you dont have a custom folder, you must make one. *Hold mouse>Right click>New Folder*                                                                                                                                                                                                             

B) Start AVP2.exe. Click "OPTIONS" on the launcher window with the picture of the queen.

C) To run Star Wars Mod v2.0, type the following in the command line exactly as follows: 

-rez custom/SW_MOD2.rez

D) Check "Always specify these command-line parameters."

E) You will know if you installed the mod correctly if you see a new splash menu and sound.

If you still don't undertand how to get this mod working, I have a video tutorial on how to install rez files here:

A) Whatever site is hosting this mod as is, thank you.

B) Extra special thanks to the following people for their contributions:

v2.0

Rasirez for helping me find seemingly impossible to find textures on maps for over the course of 13 years. I really needed the eyes of someone who made maps to know what folder paths certain textures were in. He also bugged me for 13 years asking if the mod was finished. Thanks.

The Canon Master for his ABCD model conversion tool and some Milkshape 3D help. It was this very tool that helped me import a bunch of new models into AvP2. Go download his client!

x-M-x for hosting, helping me find a few textures, beta testing and being the person I could annoy all the time asking "does this look good/bad?" in the mod. He would also periodically ask me, "what is the status of Star Wars Mod?" when I wasn't working on it at all. Thanks.

The One for also helping me find seemingly impossible to find textures. He is another person who had the eyes of a mapper to help me find the folder paths of some textures.

Ayleia for help with getting the new multiplayer character models to appear in the exosuits.


v1.0

HHO and Artalavista for their Star Wars maps.

Sir Huntly for providing prefabs to HHO for his Death Star map.

Coty for his Tomika's Daughter model and ModelEdit teachings.

RaptorRed for importing the lightsaber, blaster, blaster rifle, Sith scepter, bowcaster and bacta tank models upon request.

Alain, Hevoc and x-M-x for helping me test v1.0 of the mod.

Jerod for hosting.


C) The haters. There are very few, but they exist. I would get comments from them saying that I "never did anything", "never made anything" or never made anything noteworthy. I even received the comment that I don't play AvP2. Those who follow the popular AvP2 websites will know who I'm talking about. All this despite running an AvP2 website and releasing mods for over 15 years for what is considered an abandonware game as of 2019. While I never took their comments to heart due to how ridiculous they were, the thought of releasing this mod, knowing full well that they would download it and play it, brings me great joy. They are most certainly welcome.

I would also like to challenge these individuals to try and top what I did with this mod. If their mod is even close to being as thorough and expansive as my mod, I would love to try it.


D) My fanbase. Over the years I would see a bunch of people download my files. I was always grateful that other players took the time to check out the files I released. Furthermore, over time a lot of other AvP2 players would randomly contact me and tell me thanks for making something that they liked. While I always made these mods for myself primarily, I also wanted others to enjoy them too. For this mod in particular, due to how grueling it was to convert thousands of textures, the nice comments I received encouraged me even more to finish it. Thank you all.

9) Future Releases:

A) More Star Wars custom maps?

I'm not a mapper and I have no intention to start making maps for AvP2.

However, there are still a handful of active AvP2 mappers around in 2019. I tried to get some of them to contribute a new map to this mod but nothing came of it. While it would have been nice to see new maps packed with this mod, that doesn't mean they can't come in the future.

Star Wars Mod v2.0 presents an entirely new texture set that I hope will inspire other mappers to make custom AvP2 levels for. I encourage any AvP2 mapper out there to make their own Star Wars map with this new texture set, sounds, etc in mind. It can be singleplayer or multiplayer.

Their maps can be considered "add-ons" to be played with Star Wars Mod v2.0 running. This means they can release the map as a standalone map to be run like the following:

-rez custom/SW_MOD2.rez -rez custom/newstarwarsmap.rez

If they wish, I could also pack in the new map with a possible update to this mod (more on that below).

Even if no new Star Wars maps are made, I would advise players to revisit all the other custom maps that are already out there while running this mod. That means revisit UMP2 and other standalone maps. Everything will be different for better or for worse. It can be fun to see how the maps change.

B) Star Wars Mod - Version 3.0? 

When I released v1.0, I said v2.0 may include gameplay changes and that the worldtexture add-on would be just an add-on. It turned out that v2.0 winded up being the add-on plus a LOT more minus the gameplay changes.

I COULD still make a v3.0 with just gameplay changes. This would primarily be making lightsabers more deadly, blasters shooting actual laser bolts, maybe some force powers, extra multiplayer character classes, etc.

However, I'm completely burned out from making this mod. I need a big break from it all and if I make other files I would want to try making some non-Star Wars stuff. I have other ideas that might be cool too.

I won't rule out a v3.0, but I feel really satisfied in finishing off v2.0. v2.0 fixes so many bugs and things I found I could improve on from v1.0. The changes from v1.0 to v2.0 are so massive, that the changes possible from v2.0 to v3.0 seems minor in comparison. The problem is that it would be a lot more work and I worry about going overboard again. This is time consuming stuff and it doesn't pay the bills. I also would want to implement new features that I may need a programmer for which is out of my wheelhouse.

Please consider v2.0 final unless I change my mind. I'm sure most players will be more than happy with this mod as is. =)

Remember! The Force will be with you, always.
