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.

The mod is being developed using a SVN repository. We have made this repository open to the public so you can download and experiment with the mod while its being developed. Instructions for downloading can be found in our files section.

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.

Possibly at one point, but it doesn't fit either of the factions we're working on now, so it would have to be later on when we get around to adding more factions.

The SVN version is our development version. Once we get the EA and Minbari races completed (models and balancing) we'll release version 1 as a self installing file and/or a Homeworld2 .BIG file.

That's true, and I can also add that if we do a self-installing version, it won't be the only way to get the mod. I've always found it limiting to have the mod dictate how it installs itself, so at the very least a big version will also be available at that time.

Sounds greeeeat! I remember complaining about the SVN thing at first too. Way back though.

For some reason GRBackPro Service doesnt like this mods files and wont copy them for a ghost each night. Its quite frustrating ; /

Are you guys going to be able to have a Shader 2.0 and a normal old fashioned shader version like the Battlestar mod does?

My old computer crashes just after it finishes loading this mod but it runs brilliantly on my new(ish) laptop... Can't try to have a multiplayer game until that's solved :-(

Eventually I'll make a cut down set of shaders, but I'm leaving that until I've finished developing the advanced shaders. We will then offer two versions.

For now, if you delete the shader folder in the data directory the game will revert to using the original HW2 shaders. You should be able to play the game on your older machine then. It won't look quite as pretty and some things might look a bit odd.

Thank you!

Another thing is if I have the shaderless version on one machine and the shiny shiny shader-ed version on another will they be able to play together in multiplayer?

I'll be experimenting myself of course but I thought i'd still ask ^_^

IIRC, the -forceLAN command line switch, as seen on this page: Hw2wiki.net should force the two computers to connect, even if it would lead to synchronization problems, which it shouldn't in itself do, since the change is purely cosmetic.

Once more, thank you!

Deleting the shaders file worked and it didn't connect in multiplayer, i'll try the forceLAN command line next. Keep up the great work guys! In the mod and in the community :)
