Installation Instructions: 8
Overall Rating: 8.4
jdee's Second Sides Mod is, in its essential form, a large mod expanding on all four sides and adding a huge amount of custom content to a game that rarely sees it anymore. It incorporates a wide range of assets both from the community and from the other game in the series, Battlefront II. It also includes a few new maps and new localizations for the global sides.
This mod covers all of the main sides, including the local sides which are rarely seen. No unit has been left untouched, seeing either a weapon modification or a visual redesign. Every weapon has been redone, with each bolt looking more vibrant and colorful and dealing more damage as well. The units are fairly well balanced throughout the sides and versus their opposition, with powerful units dying somewhat easily and less powerful units able to take them down.
The vehicles have been modified as well. Most of them are models converted from Battlefront II or community created. They all have their respective animations, which must have taken a good deal of work on the part of the creator. Gunships are now more like tanks, which is what they should be, and fighters are faster and less powerful in comparison. Tanks are much more powerful, and can take out their opposition very quickly as well as the infantry running around.
Visually, the mod is very polished. There are a lot of new skins and new weapon models for units, and pretty much ever unit looks good. Lasers are edited to some degree, and explosions are much bigger and more powerful. A downside to this is that the mod may crash some less powerful systems and even on powerful ones, some effects will disappear and hits will not go through. This does detract from the mod somewhat.
Aside from the issue with some hits and effects not going through, the mod has relatively few bugs. The author lists some custom maps that are incompatible, but those are not too commonly played. There are some missing localizations, but that can be overlooked considering that there are localizations at all- usually there aren't in large scale side mods like this. Another downside is the complicated install process- it will take a lot of hard drive space to install this mod and still maintain backups of all your game files. I suggest overwriting everything and then simply reinstalling the game after you are finished playing. An installer would definitely be nice for the next version.
Overall, this is a very good mod. My review may not be the best impression of it, but it is fun to play and I think that it is definitely one of Battlefront 1's best mods. I highly recommend it.

NOTE TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO USE THIS MOD IN THEIR MAPS
Dont release a map with this mod until the final version of this comes out. Then I will release the source files in different parts because its so big. (Like the way the convo pack people released the convo pack assets
The sides will not work properly in:
imp strikeforce/rebel scums Utapau (AT-RT doesn't work there for some reason)
Bespin Escape Final works perfectly fine if you don't use the Jedi Interceptors or Droid Bombers (they crash the game, but for some reason AI can use them without a problem)
