Arise, ye workers from your slumber,
Arise, ye prisoners of want.
For reason in revolt now thunders,
and at last ends the age of cant!


FinnWars 1918 is a minimod of an older mod called FinnWars. It's based on Finnish Civil War. Finland declared independence after the fall of Russian Empire. Not soon after this, the Finnish Peoples Delegation consisting of unhappy Finnish workers, tenants and ideological socialists declared a revolution against the Finnish goverment. This mod allows you to fill the boots of a soldier from either side. You can choose to defend the goverment as a devout patriot from the White side, or if you feel a bit more disgruntled towards the bourgeois and landowners then join the side of the socialist Reds.


This mod is under development and it's currently in crude public alpha state. I've been developing this as a hobby for several years and now I have finally managed to get this mod into a state I feel comfortable publishing. It's rather rough around the edges but I will keep fixing it.

Differences to FinnWars and Battlefield 1942:
-Two new factions: Finnish Socialist Workers' Republic (Reds) and Finnish Senate (Whites)
-New weapons and maps
-Redesigned GUI
-Some new gameplay implementations
-Focus on more realistic and slower paced gameplay

FW1918 doesn't have singlepayer- /Co-op -maps. Semi-mobile machine guns and kit limitations would never work with BF42's AI-system. This is purely a multiplayer-mod just like FinnWars.

Installing:
Extract the .zip file to your ...EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods -folder. After that you need to delete all menu_***.rfa-files from FinnWars's folder. If this isn't done correctly the GUI-elements wont work! (A bug in BF42 I can't fix) Read the readme.txt-file for more information.


Server:
This server will close around early to mid january unless this mod gains popularity.

The mod propably has players on server during and around 6th of December 2019. This is Finnish independence day and that is the traditional day when Finnish FinnWars players gather to play FinnWars.

Feel free to give any feedback.

Ps. Can some mod change my username to VarmaKrapula? I no longer use this current nickname anywhere.

Great work, thanks for posting this. I’ll be checking the mod out very soon.

Also, you could post this on the SiMPLe forums if you want to get an event going. I can help you with that.

Thank you for your interest! I tried sharing this in SiMPLe forums but I can't post links there. Propably because I just created an account. I have to check that out later.

An event would be fun, so if it wont be a hassle, why not. There should be players already wanting to play on 6th of december from Finland so combining it with a SiMPLe-community's event would bring a lot of players. The only problem is the 16 players limit on the server. I can rise it tho but I don't want to pay for empty slots on the server so I wont unless it's necessary. :D

thx for the fast update fix.:) one guy ask for singleplayer support for this mod. Do you think it’s possible in the Future Ruuga?:)

I'm afraid it isn't possible to do, so that it works without issues. BF42 AI doens't know how to use mobile machine guns. Also the lack of vehicles and automatic weapons would make playing with bots kinda boring.

A FinnWars fan has set up a server for the Finnish independence day:

And here is the server of this mod (FinnWars 1918):

You can expect players on both of them in 6th of December. At least the FinnWars-server should have players in it.

I've released a new patch for this mod. It fixes some bugs and adds two new weapons and some random content:

If you have a previous version of this mod, I recommend deleting the old version from your "mods"-folder before extracting this one there.
First time installers: Remember to read readme.txt for installation quide! Otherwise the mod wont work as intended.

I also decided to hold a map making contest with a real prize!
