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.

I agree, superb work. The only thing that I could possibly complain about though, would be the cap' ship explosions. They just seem a little 'under-powered' and over too quickly to me. Sorry :(

The current explosions are just placeholders at the moment, they are just cut down versions of the original Homeworld 2 explosions. We'll make custom hit, damage and explosion effects once the main sections of the game are more complete.

What you're doing here is absolutely, mindblowingly, fantastic! It looks amazing and I can't wait to see the final release. I take it we will see the Narn, Centauri and shadows at some point? (Pretty please!)

Thanks!

Both Shadow and Vorlon ships are already present as bonus ships. If I can get the scripts to work, they will also be added as "monsters" which will guard an area of the map.

The Narns and Centauri should follow the completion of the EA and Minbari sides.

Its a Babylon 5 mod for the game Homeworld 2 by Relic Entertainment. The original game's graphics engine has been considerably improved through a rewrite of the main game shaders.
