The armistice had held for forty years. The Colonials had spent the time wisely, creating a huge fleet of vessels, including over 120 battlestars. Defence platforms and shipyards ring each of the twelve Colonies, sensor posts watch the demilitarized zone. The Colonial defences are on high alert after a back door was found in the recently installed CNP program, its existence revealed by the defected Cylon Caprica Six who betrayed her race for the love of scientist Gaius baltar. Their plan revealed, the Cylons had no choice but to launch an all out attack with everything they had, gathering all ships old and new.

Despite their preparations the Colonials still struggle against the sheer size of the Cylon attack. The wreckage of both Basestars and Battlestars alike litters space.

This mod aims to create a complete Battlestar Galactica experience, encompassing the scope of the entire second Cylon war. Take command of the Colonial Fleet or the Cylon armada and wage war on land and in space. Use cannons, missiles, rockets and nukes to destroy your foes.

Features:

Battlestars: Enormous battleship/carriers which carry squadrons of Vipers and Raptors inside their thick armoured hulls

Basestars: Missile armed carriers which can launch wave after wave of raiders, both light and heavy, to overwhelm the enemy with massed fire

Vipers: Agile fightercraft piloted by the best of the best

Raiders: Nimble fightercraft with numbers on their side

Nuclear missiles: Some units carry these deadly weapons in their silos, capable of crippling ships and wiping out whole squadrons of fighters

Colonial marine corps: Well trained professional soldiers with a range of vehicles and armour to back them up

Cylon Army: Legions of Centurions and a host of heavy armour to support them in their conquest of humanity

Hi everyone,

So it's been a long, long wait since the last release but I am almost ready to give you the latest version of the mod. The work I'm doing to it should be finished today and i will upload it sometime tomorrow. This mod includes a bunch of new stuff which I've covered in the articles but here's a list of the main changes:

  • New Cylon Hero, Scar.

thumb 53833ac93feecc53857d16d757


Scar is coming to the mod as a hero squadron lead by the legendary raider himself! This squadron will be a tough, hard-hitting group of veteran raiders that are more than equal to the best of the Colonial Viper pilots.

  • New Colonial Hero, Battlestar Aurora.

A veteran Jupiter class battlestar which has retained it's full wartime layout and been progressively updated over the years to include new Colonial technology such as missile jamming fields.

  • New Explosions! So all new explosions have been introduced to the mod thanks to Jeroenimo who recently declared that all of his mod content was free to use. These Beautiful explosions really add to the mod and truly titanic ones accompany the death of capital ships.

  • New Colonial space station. Another model from Jeroenimo's mod, this space station looks much more fitting for the Colonials and also features turrets on the upper surface.

New units! The two new Jupiter class variants and the Sleipir class will be featured in the mod

There's a bunch of smaller changes in the mod as well such as alterations to Nukes to make them more balanced and fair to both sides, tweaks to unit health and regeneration factors, new icon pictures for some ground units and other stuff.

Now I dare say that some people may be disappointed at this update seeing how long it took to come out. All I can say to that is that while it may have been close to a year since the last update, what I am releasing is not a years worth of work. I've stated why this is so before and ask that you be understanding.

Below are some screenshots from a skirmish battle over Tauron between a Colonial and Cylon strike force.

Enjoy!

I did. I'm pretty excited about it. My only worry is that they might issue a knee-jerk take down of mods like what happened before the release of BSG: online. I'm hoping that maybe they've realised it's a stupid thing to do and won't do it this time....

Looks like a fantastic mod :) however your description if your going with the canon story line isn't quite right.
The colonies were not prepared, the administration had reduced the amount of prepared war ships significantly which is one of the reasons why they had no chance against the Cylon assault. The virus naturally didn't help but numbers and the Colonial significant battle experience would have most likely have been enough had they been prepared. (most of the Cylon vessels had not yet been in a war, so had no battle experience)

Any how, awesome mod, great work and glad to see more BSG mods resurfacing.

I believe it's suppose to be an alternate reality scenario.

There was definite a mention of this somewhere, maybe I got mixed up with all the fan fiction out there haha read way to much of it.
Indeed the admirality did believe a war was inevitable.
Ignore my comment!

Had a go, fantastic models

There is a lot a fan fiction out there.... especially annoying is the stuff that's written up all properly with good pictures so you think it's genuine, then you find a non canon picture or it states something blatantly wrong right at the end after you've wasted ten minutes reading it.
I wish there were some better sources of information out there. I mean for example we have no idea how strong the Cylon fleet was! I've seen people arguing that it was 30-40 ships strong, other saying thousands and every number in between.

Anyway, comments are always welcome, even if the content later proves to be mistaken :)

Clearly you did not see the episode that depicted Adama's previous command aboard the Valkyrie. They deduced that the Admirality was pushing for a war which is why they had Adama pushing the Armstice Line and sent Bulldog into Cylon territory. They wanted the war, but they had no idea how infiltrated they had become.

This is not the canon storyline, hence why I describe the Cylon virus as not working, the entire premise of the mod. This mod is meant to portray the Colonies being attacked after the Cylon plan is discovered and the Cylons realise they must attack now before the Colonies use it as a justification to attack themselves.
As for the Colonies not being prepared? They had spent the last 40 years building a huge fleet (120 battlestars, presumably many more than that of other support vessels)
Please provide a source for your claim that the Colonials were not prepared and were reducing the number of ships. As a big fan of this series and having watched it many times I do not recall any evidence of this.

Great work! This came out of no where and has a fun playable campaign map with both space and land battles. Download it and give it a try.
