Warzone 2100 will download the mod directly from the game when joining a public game. Some public games are hosted with a defined set of rules. You can download the mod to open your own rooms or play locally.

Download Warzone 2100

Battleplan is a multiplayer mod for Warzone 2100. You must install Warzone 2100 first. The game is available for free on the official website. Other versions may show incompatibilities.

Then, you can open the multiplayer lobby and join a room.

Download and install Warzone 2100: Battleplan

This step is required if you are planning to play Battleplan in single player mode against the AI, or host a game.

You don't need to install Battleplan to join a multiplayer game. The mod will be downloaded and activated automatically from the host.

Download files

Download at least the game data, and add optional mods.

You can get the source code of the mod by cloning the git repository directly with "git clone" or view it from GitHub.


To install mods and additional game data, you must put the archives in subdirectories of your configuration folder for Warzone 2100. You can open this folder from the game, in the bottom-left corner of the option menu.

Install game data

The simplest way to activate the game data is to put the wz archive (without uncompressing it) under mods/<current Warzone 2100 version>/autoload inside your configuration folder. The tactical rendering mod can be placed in the same folder, but it is not recommended to play online, because all players will download it before starting a game and it is ugly.

To deactivate the mod, move the wz archive out of the autoload folder.

When a mod is active, it is listed on the title screen of the game in the top left corner.

Install additional maps

Uncompress the map pack under maps inside your configuration folder. It will add some wz files there, one for each map. You will be able to select them when configuring a new skirmishs or multiplayer game.

Maps cannot be deactivated when a mod is active or not. The title of maps that were made for Battleplan begins with Bp-.

Hosting games

To play singleplayer matches against the A.I. or host a multiplayer game, you must download and enable the mod like described above. The title screen will list which mods are activated.

Opening ports

If you want to play across the Internet, you must either enable UPnP or forward port 2100 TCP from your router to your machine. When this is not done correctly, you will still be able to create a game but noone will be able to join.

Starting a game

To create a game, select Multiplayer > Host in the main menu and configure your game. Once you click on Start the server it will be listed in the lobby and can be joined by IP too.
