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.

Hey Guys! I'm still alive and I've once again found myself itching to do some mod work and as a result I've decided to make some changes and see if I can't get some of those Centauri ships completed and ingame.

One of the biggest annoyances I have with the mod is the AI. It just doesn't work. So, I've decided to redo some aspects of the Control Point system in order to make it more usable by the computer. Now the computer will capture points without being given a free ship. I've also made it so that only a special ship can capture points, these Command and Control Transports will not only be used to capture points, but by placing them in designated areas within the control points you will be able to generate extra RU's.

I'm also hoping to help the AI along by making the roles of the different ships a bit more specific, right now everything seems to be able to do everything. With any luck, giving the different ships specific roles will help the AI choose its fleet compositions a bit more intelligently.

Something else that I have felt the mod has been lacking is interceptor technology for Earth Force. They really do suffer without it. Sadly, it requires recreating all the pulse weapons and turning them into missiles. At least as far as HW2 is concerned. They want be able to track there targets or anything and they should look the same as the do now (hopefully) but they'll be physical objects that can be destroyed.

Wow. I haven't made a wall of text in ages. Feels good. :)

Look out for progress. I'll post pics every now and then as I go. As always and comments or questions are welcome.

I must be a massive ******* cuz I can't get the mod to work....how do I get the game to launch using the mod files intead of the stock files? Please help. I downloaded using the tortoise svn and followed the instructions but, I don't know how to launch the game using the overrideBigFile. I don't know where/how to issue that command. I input the command in a location that I believed was correct but did not get any result the game did not include the mod files. I downloaded these files on 6-16-2009. I'm incredibly frustrated. Thanks.

You have to add that command line option to the shortcut to the game. If you don't use one to start the game already, you can just rightclick on the homeworld2.exe file and select the create shortcut option to make one.

Jusssst wondering. Is it ever going to get more tactical? I like the idea of fast combat but its kinda irritating when your throwing hundreds oh ships at a minbari base because they can pull in ships faster then you can blow them up. I had to hyperspace in with entire fleets and target his Cotton Ships to win.

That's because we're still working on the individual ships. We want to be able to get to the ships we want to test quickly. Once we have all the weapons on the ships properly set up, we can start balancing the sides with proper build times and costs. That will also allow us to tweak the maps to see if we need to adjust the income rates you get, capturing points.

If you mean the beta, then just go here: Thegamingunion.co.uk

The beta has been out for quite a while on SVN.

But it wouldn't be blindingly obvious if it didn't blind you by being so obvious... 8-)
