This mod aims to bring strategic combat to the Babylon 5 universe. We'll start off with the Earth Alliance vs. the Minbari and go from there once we have those two complete factions.

A quick run down of of the mod at present and some plans for the future.

Posted by on

Hello ModDb!

Over the last week Ive been working on getting the Balvarian ingame. As always HW2 has been doing its best to be difficult. :-) So, since progress has slowed I thought Id give you all a quick update on the state of the mod.

The updates to the Area Capture gametype are pretty much complete and the AI is working much better. Speaking of AI, due to limits I dont understand HW2 doesnt like have more then the original two races so Ive been building the Centuari and ISA fleets on top of the original races. Dont worry about the other races, theyll be there too through the use of gametypes. These different gametypes will also bring back the old school resourcing methods.

With the Balvarian Ive started redoing the pulse weapons to make them destructable. Strangly it was a lot easier then I expected. This means the EA ships will soon have working Interceptor systems. The light weapons of the other races will also be able to destroy incoming fire. EA ships will also havevworking E-web systems through the use of defence fields. They may actually have a chance against the Minbari!

Along with Centauri and ISA, Im going to be adding more Shadow and Vorlon ships along with First Ones, Drahk and maybe the Third Space ships. Probably Psy Corp too.

So many ideas so little free time! First Ones ships, new Jump Gate effect, new explosions, new whips, updated weapons textures, formations, attack styles, resources, engine glows.... Anyone got some free time? I could use some help. One of the more time consuming parts of getting a ship in game is
setting up its damage and death effect. Anyone want to help with that? Its easy, all you need is CFHodEd.

Anyway, progress continues and I have plenty of idea left to add.

Try talking to the folks that made the stargate mod or the guy making simplex. L hw fx has lots of races as does ptv. Lots of mods have more that 2 races with working AI. Just ask for help they should be willing to help you out.

It has been a while since I looked at either of those mods, complex was always too complex for me :-) and the quality of Stargate was pretty poor. Ill have to have a look around and catch up.
