Eighteen years have passed since FreeSpace 2 and the destruction of Capella, and the shattered colonies of man are finally ready to re-open the jump node to Earth. As the Alliance teeters on the verge of total social collapse, the Security Council deploys the elite 14th Battlegroup to re-establish contact with Earth, and young pilot Samuel Bei finds himself once more under his estranged father's command.

Age of Aquarius describes the journey of the 14th Battlegroup as its mission to the Blue Planet goes shockingly wrong. (StrategyInformer has very kindly provided a mirror for us.)

War in Heaven takes place eighteen months after the events of Blue Planet: Age of Aquarius and details the final stages of the civil war between Sol and the rest of her colonies: a war without good or evil, only shades of gray.

Built at the cutting edge of the FreeSpace Open engine, Blue Planet is a fan-made conclusion to the FreeSpace saga, a story of sacrifice, triumph, and destiny, and one of the most beloved FreeSpace mods of all time.

2014 update!

News 1 comment

Hey everybody! Just wanted to deliver a quick update, since we've neglected ModDB for too long.

As those of you who've been following our forum on Hard Light Productions know, we released Act 3 of our story, 'Tenebra', and we hope everybody enjoyed it. If you had technical or gameplay issues, please let us know.

We're also closing in on finished with our voice acting efforts for Acts 1 and 2 - please get involved! We're currently particularly interested in women's voices, both because we need to cast our female characters and because we want our cast to represent the diversity of the FreeSpace future. Once these efforts are complete, we're planning to release a standalone Director's Cut version of Blue Planet that will not require FreeSpace 2.

Hammerfall

Our short story 'Morrigan in the Sunglare' will appear in an upcoming issue of Clarkesworld, one of the finest science fiction and fantasy magazines in the world. We're eager to hear your response.

Lastly, as ever, work continues on our ongoing story. As always, the demands of life and chance mean that the pace fluctuates, but the team's all here and happy and we're looking forward to bringing you the conclusion of the war between Alliance and Federation.

At long last, news

Hey, how're you guys going with the voice over of the first part of War in Heaven? It'll be nice to have an update on that. (and one on the 2ยบ too, of course)

It's going on. We're making some progress on both fronts, but it's way too soon to give any kind of realistic estimate on both.

However, one thing that will happen in the near future is a big update for the released War In Heaven, bringing new, optimized models (The ones we've been showing off in the images section), as well as some bugfixes for rare edge cases.

So, wait, is this for FreeSpace 2, or is it stand alone?

It is a mod for FreeSpace 2, you still need FS2 (as well as FSOpen and the MediaVPs) installed in order to play it.

This is amazing! It feels like a true sequel to the main game. Will we be seeing Samuel Bei or his father again? Perhaps the same voice actors? Lol.
I must say, the story grips you, the characters you grow to respect, the music works really well, it's brilliantly written also.

Glad you liked it! Yes, Sam and his father should retain their actors in future appearances (they had a cameo at the end of WiH R1).

I noticed that! And I liked the direction you guys took the story in.
From the bottom of my heart, this mod is very special, there are so many great moments in it, both in this and Age of Aquarius. I don't think a mod has ever had this much of an effect on me before, it's like a true sequel to FS2.

This mod is a drug, it sucks you in and does not let go. I wish more games like this were out, but that might push the limits of the phrase 'too much of a good thing'.
