Hey Bear's Pit, I just decided to give up on Flashback until another patch or two come out, and I was wondering if there were any killer mods for JA2?

I've played most of the way through with the 1.13 mod, years ago, and I liked it. Have there been any new mods since 1.13 that stand out?

Well, 1.13 continues to evolve, so there will be plenty of features added since the last time you played. If you want a newer campaign with a different story I'd suggest Urban Chaos 1.13. Otherwise you could still play in Arulco, but with different maps and characters in Arulco Revisited or Arulco Reloaded. I haven't played any of these, but can highly recommend Renegade Republik, which is for an older revision of 1.13.

Another option if you want to test the waters more, rather than sink into a full campaign is try one of the many UB mods, some of which are using 1.13 features.

Check out these and other mods at the download guide here: http:// thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=14663& prevloaded=1&&start=0 most links are up to date now, 'cept for the ones that have been taken down by hosting sites.

Hi All,

An old JA2 veteran here, looking to get back into the best turn-based game ever made. I've only played the vanilla JA2, UB and Wildfire before, so I'm a bit lost in all the mods, so would appreciate any advice on what to play first and how to go on installing them.

I take it for each mod I need a fresh install of JA2 or JA2UB (Gold edition ok?) patched to latest 1.13 with the mod files on top of it. Do I need to wipe & reinstall every time I want to try a new mod?

Thank you.

Yes each mod does require a clean install of JA2 or JA2UB to begin with, but some vary from mod to mod. You can also set up mods to run from a single JA install and then certain mods using externalised sub folders from there, though I tend to just install each time.

Check out the list of mods available here;

which also include more info and installation details.
