BattleGroup42 Mod for Battlefield 1942 ====================================== This is Pre-Beta Release 0.5 of BattleGroup42. This mod is designed for all game modes (Conquest and SinglePlayer-Coop, Campaign and Instant Battle) NOTE: The Windows install program will default to installing in your Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield1942 \Mods directory - edit this directory during the install if you have Battlefield1942 installed elsewhere. This mod has three aims, in order of priority: 1) Gameplay 2) Teamwork 3) Historical accuracy, with correct vehicles This release concentrates on the BF1942 maps after Kursk (mid-1943) which is where the previous release finished. It adds the correct vehicles to each map, and features some of the most interesting and popular vehicles such as: German: Panther, King Tiger, Jagdpanzer IV, sIG howitzer US: Jumbo assault tank, M36 tank destroyer, M2A1 howitzer British: Crusader I, Bishop artillery The mod introduces appropriate vehicles as the war progresses and should ideally be played (at least once) in chronological order. Desert (95% complete): Battleaxe, Gazala, Aberdeen, Tobruk, El Alamein Russia (80% complete): Stalingrad, Kharkov, Kursk, Berlin Pacific (40% complete): Wake, Midway, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima Europe (70% complete): Omaha, Bocage, Market Garden, Bulge Although this mod is believed to be the first to introduce the correct historical vehicles for maps, it is not primarily a realism mod - it does not introduce one-shot kills or take away the engineer's wrench. This version retains existing Teamwork features such as strengthened infantry APCs with the ability to repair tanks and other vehicles. It also adds the ability for the Panzer II and Stuart light tanks to spot for artillery. There are too many changes in this release to list individually - please visit our website and/or our forums at BF42.com and TMT.com. Note the previous release included an 'Easter Egg' - the KV2 super- heavy tank (one of which stopped a German division for 2 days). This was due to be made available via a custom map which has not yet been finished. It has therefore been included in this release when Kharkov is played in singleplayer or coop mode - this may change in a later release once the custom map is available. The next release will concentrate on late war maps and introduce some more new vehicles including the Churchill, Brummbar, SU-85, IS-2, and others. However, future releases will also aim to develop further other areas of the mod including infantry weapons and aircraft. For further details visit our website: www.BattleGroup42.com This mod has been designed for Battlefield 1942 Version 1.4. To run, go into Custom Game, select BattleGroup050 and click Activate.
