We strongly recommend installing the Project Remaster mod for an enhanced gaming experience. If you are new to modding, our tutorial heavily relies on this mod, so it is advised to follow along.

Project Remaster is a high-quality enhancement modification for Battlefield 2142. It aims to remaster this 15-year-old game for a complete modern experience by introducing high-quality textures, realistic animations and new weapons into the game engine.

The mod is developed and maintained by a modding group called Project Remaster Team. You are encouraged to join their Discord server to receive support and the latest updates about their project.
