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! Read More...

BFG Brief Update

7 months ago News 3 comments

Firstly, I must apologise profusely for this mod having 'died' over the last few months. My own personal life caught up with me and I have spent half the year trying to desperately recover a degree out of it, so my focus has very much been on finishing university, with this mod sadly put to the backburner.

However - within the month I finish university completely, and with that, I will have the free time and energy to dedicate myself to this mod and to finally releasing a full version before the actual game comes out!

However, in order to do so - I need to sound the horn of recruitment:

BFG desperately needs:
- A Coder
- a Texture Artist (3d and 2d)
- a Map Designer
- An Environmental artist.

Orginally, I myself did all of the above, but I realise I have been pushing far too much above my weight. With the absence of Gorb now, I must simply expand the team in order to move forward and release! So if you'd like to join the team, simply email me at haratac @ (remove the spaces!)

Thanks, and there will be an update soon.

Have you thought about doing a 3up scale chais cruiser set, like Games workshop did as a promo ship.

Possibly using it as a "Easter egg" in the mod?
Chaos battle ship?

Woah, support for BFG reduced as far as Forgeworld goes.
Or can anyone find BFG on Forgeworld?

I was looking for strike cruisers. :P

This wont impact on development will it?

GW and FW are pulling support for all specialist games apparently, which makes me massively sad - but it will not impact development at all!

So that would explain the rules compilations for Battle fleet gothic not produced by GW for sale on Ebay, using a lot of sources for the rules compilation., :)

I guess it had to happen one day.

But with organizations like shapeways, proxy models should be available.

And wit the compilation rules sets that keep being talked about online, the world looks like it is supporting certain specialist games.

I will have to check out your forum soon enough. :)

Crazy Idea Incoming. :P

Are you doung dynamic hull composition for the fleets?
I know chaos and imperials can use swappable bays.

Looking through a lot of the buildings it is possible to call on objects from within other models. and put them in in the position they are in in the original REF and then animate them as desired.

Just to cut down on file size, since a lot of objects get repeated throughout a race,

Crazy idea is that you could just do up one turret or hull and have it upgradable by calling on another hull / turret, that woudl automatically go into the position of the object.

Habscrapers i did is the best example of it. :)

It would allow you a lot of easy work needing to have one great looking turret and when you are working in the max you would only need to use low quality turret / hull. or during testing.

Or anyone can do it that understands how to call in higher quality objects in through the Whm...

I told you it was crazy... But it can be used fro more then that.
Might make some units easier to implement. :)

Ship meshes are already modular. Given that we build our art from scratch it allows for significant optimisation of the vertex count and thus of the final render.

Compared to even vanilla DoW, performance is not an issue, even if we put excessive detail into the ship models.

Lucky fellows. :)

You also cut back on a lot of surfaces using no ground terrain, I believe?

Bad Graphics. Took ages to be "somewhat complete" AI broken. Only Miltiplayer, "several" missed release dates. Broken downloads. Unclear instructions... this mod features all things a mod should "not" have / be.
