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.

Guys, how's work on the modification? Something you do not hear the updates. Abandoned modification?

I wouldn't say abandoned, but as this modification is made by only a few people on a voluntary basis, motivation and inspiration can come and go sporadically, leading to sometimes long periods of inactivity.

I myself haven't really kept up with the mod lately, but as you can see, I still take a look back from time to time.

As for the others, I haven't heard from them since July. Guess I have to be patient as well as you.

Any chance you folks could upload the current (unfinished)version of your mod onto MODDB? I've followed your directions with the Tortoise program but it just stopped downloading halfway through and now can't be re-started. :-(
Your mod looks really great and I would love to have a look and give some feedback

Definatly. The mod is finally in a stable partly balanced state. I've been meaning to create a v1.0 download, hopefully with an installer and launcher so it's easier to install and play. The only thing stopping me is a lack of time. :)

Hi great mod ever!!! In early versions it was possible to play as Earth Alliance and Monbari in deathmatch, but in last versions in deathmatch it is only possible to build starfighters for EAS.

Is it possible to return possibility to build ships in deathmatch?

very easy to do it yourself. Open the file date \ skripts \ startingfleets. Open notepad files minbari.lua and earth. Lua kottontender changes the base of the Earth's Orion and Morshin on Minbari base. The names of the ships to copy the folder "Ships"

Thank you. But I still cant make it work. I had two file Earth00.LUA and Earth00Testing.lua. Which one I should open. In first there are two types of ship (Black omega and Cotton Tender) What should I add to Cotton?

Babylon_6 May 25 2013, 6:33am replied:

copy this configuration to replace the initial Earth00.LUA. I just replaced EAR_kottontender on EAR_OrionStation. Similarly, make and minbari00.lua. Testing mode just adds to the start of more ships and more resources.

PersistantData =
StrikeGroups = {},

Squadrons =

type = "EAR_OrionStation",
subsystems = {},
shiphold = {},
name = "",
size = 1,
number = 1,

type = "EAR_Omega",
subsystems = {},
shiphold = {},
name = "",
size = 1,
number = 3,

Happy to help. So you can create at the start of any fleet. Instead, you can put EAR_OrionStayshion Babylon 5)))))

Hmmm, not really. Non of the ships can gather resources. At present the mod is built around the Capture gametype. In the future I intend to have a Gathering gametype where you have to gather resources like in the original death match.

I've also got plans for Shadow War and Hyperspace War gametypes.
