Just like he did with the Great Machine on Epsilon 3 Zathras will keep The Babylon Project running. This patch in the form of a mod is also required for multiplayer.

While 3.4b was the final official release of The Babylon Project

development continues by the public. This mod allows you to still play

TBP as it does not change the original installation. Instead when

activated it overrides all the errors that were found with fixed

versions. It is also compatible and meant to run with FS2_Open 3.7.0

The required builds can be downloaded here: Along with the fixes

there is quite a bit of new content. While most of that content is geared toward the development

side this version also includes the addition of normal maps for most ships.
Installation instructions and more info can be found here:

I actually do not know, where to report one bug report, because i am not on HLP for some years anymore because of problems with some of the so-called SCP developers regarding my own builds back then, and most of them are still there ^^.

Currently i am playing "Drums of War" for an Insane video playthrough and encountered a problem with the Zathras' nrcontainer.pof. If a NR Freighter is docked with a NR Container, it is unable to dock with a G'Quan destroyer. But if i use the "retail" TBP nrcontainer.pof, everything works flawlessy. So i hope you can fix this model in future releases, because this game needs to be state-of-the-art, because it is a wonderful game. Unfortunately it do not have an active fredding community :(
