The neon-soaked destruction-heavy game Brigador: Up-Armored Edition just recently got updated, bringing in some new content and allowing everyone to jump in to make mods and maps with the Community Reinforcements Update.

Working with modders the game now has some extra F-series campaign maps to blast through, Quatro Santos and Long Roads Freelance runs which feature all new Freelance levels by community designers and also new combinations of 2-3 map Freelance runs suggested by the community.

While new levels officially added in are sweet, the chance to now add in more is even sweeter. They've released a set of modding tools, available on Steam as a free DLC. However, it's only currently built for Windows. From what they said in their Discord Channel, it is planned for Linux (and Mac) as well they just haven't had time.

Determined not to be stopped there, with thanks to some help from the super friendly people in their official Discord Channel, here's the steps you can take to enable playing extra content in the Linux version. Firstly, you need to manually download the mod tools pack here, then simply move all the files from the "BrigadorModkit" directory into your Brigador install folder.

Once done, you need to run this command (once) from the Brigador install folder:

./brigador --console -dumppack

When you've found some mods and maps you want (you can see lots in the uploads section of their Discord Channel), place them directly into your Brigador install and then run this to have them show up in-game:

./brigador --console -genpack

You need to repeat the last command above each time you add something new in, but it's really easy and it does work. Here's a little shot from a community map called "Life's a Beach" from modder Gotcha played in the Linux version:

I'm completely terrible at it! A surprisingly challenging map, as soon as an alarm goes off tons of enemy units start looking around for you and there's a number of really powerful enemies too. I don't let that stop me though, stomping over everything in Brigador is such a huge amount of fun.

As a reminder, Stellar Jockeys are also working on a sequel named Brigador Killers which is confirmed to be coming to Linux next year.

You can pick up Brigador from GOG, and Steam.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to see what other delightful extras their modding community have been cooking up, there's all sorts from maps to new mechs to pilot and weapons too.
