Nightstalker's Universe Mod has been in the works for 7 years, the mod itself has gone though many incarnations including being rewritten several times. The concept of NSU is to give SciFi junkies what they are looking for. There are several sections of the mod dedicated to different SciFi Shows such as, BSG, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Firefly, and Star Wars. There are several sections of the mod that come from different ideas I have come up with and each system is uniquely different with custom suns, starspheres, and a few planets. The Mod has a lot to offer for a wide range of players. At the start you are given 5 choices though the use of one way jump holes (one in ST, SW, B5, Nightstalker Space, Terran Alliance Space). There are also 4 unique Factions in the mod, including Rogue Asteroids, Comets, Derelicts (Moving wrecks), and monsters (They hurt too). There is an update coming but I do not have a date as of yet for release.
This mod gets a 7 out of 10 for some reasons, some overlooked after being released. First of all, the Jumpholes from the starting system are a one way ticket. This causes some problems for people that want to select a new system. The other issue is that NPCs have overpowered weapons, although you are given 5 million credits at start on the offical server, all the better ships are hundreds of millions of credits. Finally, the last part which got me ****** is that the so called 10 players on it, they're really Bots that are programmed to change profiles after a certain time. To me, if they used only one set or theme, instead of using ships from differenet universes, it might have gone better. It's worse than Discovery at its current state.
Although the Mod is HUGE... and I mean really Big (which can deter some), and the enemies can be tough... this is a great Mod for a community. You do not treat it as if it is a single player adventure. You need to rely on the experience and assistance of others. That's what Multiplayer is all about. The systems and ships are great for any fan of SciFi. There is something for everyone to enjoy here.
Very nice mod once the download is figured out. It's deffinately a good chalange but not ridiculously hard like some. and with a plus it has several excellent universes to pick from to satisify the Sci FI fan in you.Not to mention the use of capitals and a rather nice hyperspace zone in the Babylon 5 universe.
Good work Nightstalker mod team, this deserves a 10/10!
