Nexus - War of The Damned is a mod taking place around 20 years after the game "Nexus: The Jupiter Incident" ended. Work has been slow, and if anyone is willing to help us make this mod then please message us with what you can/will do. Information on the current features and story below.

Story and Information about important ships

A group of Rebels, Pirates, and Dissidents battle their way into a military research facility where a new ship is being built. They managed to capture the ship and undock from the station. However before they can jump to subspace they are captured by the military. Then after a while, and many failures, they finally find a way to escape, and return to their waiting fleet. However when they rejoin their fleet and try to leave the system through one of the wormholes they are ambushed by many military ships, but a fleet allied with the pirates jumps in and lends a hand allowing them to escape... for now...

The name of the ship they captured was "Coron", and it possesses technology salvaged from the wrecks of the "White" ships destroyed near Pluto. The technology included the "Rift Drive", which allowed a wormhole to be opened for a short amount of time, Improved laser technology, Shield penetrating "Crack Guns", and Advanced Shield technology. All of the research and development of the technology on this ship took nearly 19 years, for the next year they were building the hull and fitting the new technologies.

I will be adding more to this section as the mod is developed.


    Custom Ship Models
    Custom Weapon, Engine Effects
    Multiplayer Cooperative missions, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch

Removed a bunch of old data from the description.
For anyone who wants to help me hunt down bugs before releases, there is an SVN that you can use to download the developer version of the mod as I make it. Please report any bugs by PM.

Note: do remember to remove the space in the // before attempting to use that. There's always a chance that things in this SVN might be buggy or may not work at all.

Hey guys, I should be releasing the latest playable beta some time in the next 2 months. If you have any ideas, comments, or criticism now is the time to give it to me. Here's some stuff I have already done:

  • Changed the models of a few ships
  • Changed some sounds to play properly
  • Added some new weapons
  • Made a new video

  • Reduced amount of unused content
  • Started on a trailer
  • Fixed most bugs from the last beta
  • Other stuff I always forget about

Well that's about all for now, I'll post here again when I'm about to release it. Please send any messages to either My MODDB Account, or my forum account ( ).

Right now it's still in development, I honestly don't have any idea when it will be done. It's not high on my priority list right now, but it's certainly not dead even if I don't seem all that active. I'm considering releasing a new beta after I finish updating my device info and make sounds for the new weapons.

Well, i played it and i have to say it's pretty bad...
No story, no level design, no proper device names and no interesting gameplay whatsoever. This mod needs a lot of work...
First of all, don't throw the player directly in a firefight right out of the briefing, he won't even have time to understand what the hell is going on. Second of all, your missions have no timeline, no story, just get in and start shooting, and whoever has the best guns wins... This is a sci-fi game, but so far your missions lack any kind of fiction. Watch a few episodes of Star Trek or Stargate and at least try to make some kind of story before, during and after battles.
Your missions all look like simulators and that is not cool. The narative is missing completely. And pls fix the weapon names for the next version, it is confusing not knowing what weapons to use...
Good luck.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood your comment but I took most of that as an INSULT.
Ehm I'll just explain some stuff here, the missions in this mod are currently only testing. You must remember that this is still in beta, there won't be much other then getting thrown into a battle until I finish the campaign version. On the note of the weapon and device names, I had finished 75% of them, however, I had accidentally used an old backup when I messed something up and lost them before I uploaded beta 3. Also, you seem to not really understand that until the campaign is made I can't do briefings or any of that story stuff the normal game had. If I manage to get anything done in those areas I'll release it, but right now I'm just setting the stuff out so I CAN do the story. I need to do a lot before I can do that.

So please, before you go and complain about something like device names or the missions, just remember that this is in beta and isn't even close to being done. Just another note, I'm the only one making it so it's going to be a while before most of the detail work is done.. if you want it a lot your more then welcome to make some stuff and send it to me. Again, sorry if I took your comment wrong, but you should consider these things before you comment.

Yes, i apologize for being so rough, i was tired and i seem to make bad posts when i am tired. I only meant it as feedback, but it came out wrong.
I realise it's the beta, i was just hoping for something a bit more playable. I will wait until u get a playable version of the campaign.
Sry about the rash review.
I want to make a campaign of my own, indeed, but i'm just getting started and i have no idea what tools i will need and where to get them. I have the Nexus Skirmisher but that is it. Perhaps u could give me some pointers on what i need to make a mission with titles, objectives, dialogues and ships :). I'm new but i want to learn as i love this game and i would like to make a campaign with the TJI models in my spare time.
