Battlefleet Gothic is the game of spaceship battles in the dark future of the 41st millennium. Fleets of enormous starships engage in ship-to-ship combat among the darkness of the galaxy in a struggle for the domination of the Gothic Sector! All the action takes place in the game as you match wits and skill against your opponent. This modification is a total conversion of the base game and replaces the cityscapes and barren wastelands of Dawn of War with the endless cold void of space. Gone are the men and women under your command; you fight with battlecruisers and arcane relics inbetween the stars themselves!

A news update on the progress of the mod and why progress has been sporadic.

Posted by on

First of all, an explanation. This mod is just me at the moment, with Gorb incredibly busy with work - and I have been so too, working ten/twelve hour shifts six days a week on top of university work just to pay bills. But now I've come into free time.

The plan is to release an immediate patch/installer within the next week or two that will make installation easier and introduce some new 3d/2d graphics. Following numerous complaints about the previous installer, I am to use a generic package installer instead.

Now in order to motivate myself, I will be posting DAILY updates, small snippets of progress so I can continue this mod and get a full release out this year. The first of these updates will be this evening.

Thank you all for your continued support and patience. Modding is a hobby of mine, a hobby I have not been able to indulge for a very long time and it is nice to return to it.

PATCH DETAILS:

  • Full 3D models for Chaos, Imperial Navy and Environmental Assets
  • 2d Icons for Chaos and the Order Buttons
  • Tweaks and balance fixes
  • Refined torpedo code
  • New SCAR Scenarios

Excellent! It's wonderful news!

I hope BFG finally gets the mod it deserves since GW is too pants in the head retarded to try to do a video game for it.
