About this mod

Several options to make AIs in Instant Action fit your tastes ! Mods are mostly about Prequel era but you'll find many options for other eras !

Not MP safe due to gameplay changes !

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Not MP safe due to gameplay changes !

Changelog :
- In OT and ST Accurate AIs, FO Officers are now Stormtroopers on all maps but Starkiller Base and the FO Star Destroyer, Death Star 2 Officers are now wearing the right outfit, Ewoks are removed from all maps but Endor, a few Shoretroopers are added on Yavin IV as this is a planet they fought on.
- In other mods, I simply updated them to work with latest BF2 Update. They shouldn't crash on Venator and Kamino Mission anymore.

Due to the amount of mods and combinations, I admit I can't reasonably test everything on every maps. Let me know in the bugs section if you face any problems !

Main mods
"Accurate AIs from all eras" : Two mods, one for PT, one for other eras. Each map uses trooper, hero, and reinforcements skins that fit best according to films and The Clone Wars series. PT is separate from other eras if you want to deal differently with this era.



Republic AI changes :
  • Geonosis Mission : AOTC, clones are made of Phase 1 shinies. ARC Troopers are Phase 1 Default, Commandos are Default and Jet Troopers are Phase 1 Legacy. Use the add-on "AI clones with Phase 1 ranks - Geonosis Mission" with a Phase 1 ranks mod for the most accurate 1rst battle of Geonosis.
  • Kamino Mission : AOTC era, clones are made of Phase 1 shinies. ARC Troopers are Phase 1 Default, Commandos are Default and Jet Troopers are Phase 1 Legacy.
  • Venator : TCW S01-S03 era, clones are made of Phase 1 shinies with some Navy officers. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Default, Commandos are Default and Jet Troopers are Phase 1 Legacy.
  • Kamino Supremacy : TCW S03 E02, clones are made of Phase 1 shinies and 501st troopers. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Default and Colbat Hero, Commandos are Default and Jet Troopers are Phase 1 Legacy.
  • Geonosis Supremacy : TCW S02 E05-E06, clones are made of Phase 1 shinies, 212th, 41st and 212th ARF troopers. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Default and Umbra Operative, Commandos are Default and Urban, Jet Troopers are Phase 1 Legacy.
  • Naboo : TCW S04-S07 era, clones are made of Phase 2 501st and 212th troopers. Both legions were often seen fighting together, especially in urban areas. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Cobalt Hero and Umbra Operative, Commandos are Default and Urban, Jet Troopers are Phase 2 Legacy and 501st.
  • Dreadnought : ROTS, clones are made of Phase 2 501st and 212th troopers. These legions make sens in helping Anakin and Obi-Wan save the Chancellor. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Cobalt Hero and Umbra Operative, Commandos are Default, Jet Troopers are Phase 2 Legacy and 501st.
  • Kashyyyk : ROTS, clones are made of 41st Scout troopers. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Default and Lambent Seeker, Commandos are Urban and Jungle, Jet Troopers are Phase 2 Legacy.
  • Felucia : ROTS, clones are made of 327th troopers. ARC Troopers are Phase 2 Default and Lambent Seeker, Commandos are Urban and Jungle, Jet Troopers are Phase 2 Legacy.
  • Due to the Republic having 2 enforcers, I removed AI Wookies from all PT maps but Kashyyyk. I did not do the same with Ewoks due to them being the only Rebellion infiltrator.



Droid AI changes :

OT Trooper changes : AI rebel troopers use all of their skin across different maps. AI wookies use both skins. AI Stormtroopers appear on Scarif alongside Shoretroopers. Some AI Shoretroopers appear on Yavin IV (cf Wookiepedia). On Death Star 2, AI Imperial Officers now wear the right outfit. AI Ewoks are removed from all maps but Endor. 

ST Trooper changes : FO Officers now wear the former FO Jet-trooper skin on all maps but Starkiller and the FO Star Destroyer.

How to use it with other mods ?

Compatible with Mophead's Instant Action Improvements 1.20 : https://www.nexusmods.com/starwarsbattlefront22017/mods/1056 but not 1.21.
Should you want to use it and the AI Phase 1 ranks mods, you'll need to set up mods in this order :

  1. Instant Action Improvements 1.20
  2. Attack of the Clones Phase I Overhaul or Ortho's 4K Clone Legions
  3. 4K Legion replacer - Classic Phase I Captains (when using Ortho's 4K Clone Legions)
  4. Whatever AI clones with Phase 1 ranks mod or another of mine
  5. Whatever of my add-ons

Note : Mods that change Clone's equipment, such as kamas, pauldrons, gear and backpacks, will not affect AIs. Only textures will change for them, as this mod overwrites some AI skin files. But to be closer to these mods, I removed visors from Phase 1 Shinies, 41st, 501st, Coruscant Guard (or 212th) and 327th heavies in the mods involving Phase 1 ranks.


What's to expect in the future ?
I may turn my mods into add-ons for Instant Action Improvements in a few months. Time will tell if I'll be able to do so.
