Focusing on members of the Battlefield modding community the purpose of "Modding Spotlight" is to highlight contributions made by those community heroes.
Void's ESAI Add-on
Back in 2010 BFSP member Void created his Enhanced Strategic AI system (or ESAI for short) with the purpose of engineering a better bot commander.
So what exactly is ESAI? It is an alternative approach to BF2 & BF2142 Strategic AI scripting. It gives the AI commander many more strategy options. ESAI is designed to enhance each team's cohesiveness and overall effectiveness.
End result was a much better experience in AI combat for both friendlies and enemy AI combatants. Void's ESAI allowed users to customize how AI commanders would react to different situations, thus indirectly allowing users to affect AI troops movements more closely. Users could even craft their own strategies based on any given map, and assistance from user wilson212 made a user-friendly Gui interface possible.
affecting so many different levels of the AI, ESAI add-on made AI less predictable and thus more fun to play with. If you haven't tried it yet, be sure to take a look in the ESAI Thread in our forums.
Note Void also created Map Patch Kits for specific maps he edited for his personal enjoyment, and thought to share with the community. Check out his bug fixed and improved maps here in our ***BF DOWNLOADS*** forum section.

TheObscure has released a comprehensive article at BF2 Unlimited Action's Mod Database Page that is definitely worth checking out. Here is an excerpt...
in the first release you will have the main game integrated with Special Forces, as well as the two booster packs - Armored Fury and Euro Force.
He also lists details of bugfixes, HD Hud, lightmaps, HDR lighting, new vehicles, textures, and attention to Singleplayer, etc in the article. From the sounds of it this mod has great potential to be a community favorite. :)

Speaking of the now dead BFP4Free, BFSP community member Lt. Nomad has taken it upon himself to meshhack variants to the benefit of the community. Lt.Nomad had the following to announce...
the pack is small right now, numbering to about 41 guns. I'm looking forward to at least 120. I would call for open beta if the numbers reach at least 100
Something to look forward to as Lt.Nomad is no stranger to mesh hacking new variants of weapons. His content thread boasts hundreds of quality variations of the default BF2 weapons with multiple different scopes, rails, attachments, etc. If you haven't tried his original default BF2 weapons meshhack packs, they're readily available for download in his content thread in our forums.
