I was going through my email and saw in the Fileplanet weekly newsletter mention about a new mod for Battlefield 1942. Talk about original! This one turns BF:1942 into a game about pirates!!. You get stuff like sloops and galleons, coastal mortars, and ‘turtles’ (little submarine things) and balloons.
I haven’t played it yet, but I’m going to have re-install BF:1942 and check it out. BTW, the lead developer worked on the XBox version of Crimson Skies as an environmental artist.
