A bit of history
In January 2008, a small group of modders started work on a highly ambitious project called Battlestar Galactica: Exodus. Although the concept was decent and – at that time – unconventional for Freelancer mods, the modding team did not possess a skill level high enough to make their visions come true the way they wished to. Furthermore, the lack of a decent server made continuation of the project impossible and thus it was abandoned in early 2009. In autumn 2009 however, the project was restarted under a new name – Crossroads.
A new beginning
Crossroads is a total conversion mod for Freelancer based on the 2003 TV series Battlestar Galactica. It aims to provide a well-balanced game experience that closely resembles the series, but has its very own background story, set in a slightly alternated universe. A completely new map and system concept means that Crossroads will feel like no BSG mod you have ever played before. Additionally, a very unordinary set of equipment items will pay attention to every detail of the wide range of ships available to you in the BSG universe.

** 10/02/2010 :: Watch the Tech-Demo here!
This video was made to demonstrate that Freelancer can support over 1700000 polygons. Model made by Tan.J, this is NOT an in-game model but a test object. Please note that the lags experienced through parts of the video do not result from poor ingame performance while regular playing but from performance problems caused by the video software that was used for both caption and convertion of the video. Next time we make a video, we will use better video software. ;)
** 10/01/2010 :: Battlestar Galactica: Crossroads is now being developed in conjunction with Battlestar Galactica: Revenge of the Colonies, a Battlestar Galactica mod for Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption.
