Welcome to my first distant worlds mod, Battlestar Galactica.

Now this mod is vary much work in progress and not at all comparable to some other mods in terms of size or content. This is just my own little personal project to bring the glorious world of battlestar into distant worlds universe.

As I said this mod has some pretty limited content and is mainly just a pet project I felt I wanted to upload so everyone could use it. Please report any/all bugs you encounter and send your suggestions/requests to me.

Please visit this mods Matrix page and leave a comment on what you think.

The current features:



The Cylon faction is vary much done with ships mostly completed and characters about 40% done.


The Human faction is much like the cylons mostly completed with ships/characters working and about 80% done.


Both cylon and human ships are completed in terms of pictures/use. I have yet to fully design/name them all.
Ships include:

Galactica Class Battlestar (cruisers)
Mars Class Battlestar (carriers)
Mercury Class Battlestar (capitol ships)
Many CDF Ships... (Frigate/Destroyer/escort)
Many Civilian Ships...

Basestar (Capitol/Cruiser)
Unidentified Cylon ships (Frigate/Destroyer/escort/Carrier)
Many Working Class Ships...


Both Cylon and humans characters are mostly completed albeit rushed, I do plan on redoing the characters/portraits.

Currently the Cylon characters are the most incomplete.

Please don't mistake this mod for the one made by heree. Although I do use some base content from his mod (with permissions)these mods are different on the level of compatibility and race content.


Please check the downloads page.

How to install:

Open the .rar and drag Battlestar Galactica mod to C:\Program Files (x86)\Slitherine Ltd\Distant Worlds Universe\Customization and load it up in themes.

Whats to come?

Reworked Research trees (hopefully).
More Facility's (Hopefully).
Reworked/More Characters.
Reworked Designs.
More Factions (Hopefully)
First/Second cylon war scenarios.


Heree78 for inspiring me and allowing me use of some of his content.

Want to play this mod for Distant Worlds/Distant Worlds Shadows?

The original versions of this mod for both games can be located on the Matrix forums made by Heree78

Alpha 2.0


So what you have all been waiting for.... 2.0.

Alpha 2.0 Doesn't really have everything I wanted in but it does have a good amount of content. Also I realize that I didn't post a update for 1.0 so this update will contain both information from 1.0 and 2.0. lets get started shall we.

New Content in 1.0/2.0:

  • Reworked weapons tree. I have totally reworked the railguns in the weapons tree to auto cannons.

  • Extra techs. these techs are basically just for aesthetics, Combat Information center, Flak cannons and such.
  • AI tactics reforged. This was a hard one and I'm not sure if I even did it right but, with hope, the AI should standoff now with most ships equal to or greater in firepower.
  • Fighters/Bombers. Ships should now standoff with each other and use there fighter/bombers first instead of charging in.
  • New weapons. Along with the reworked weapons tree I have added in multiple components to completely replace the railguns. Right now these are just auto cannons but I would like to hear what you think about them.
  • Many Bug fixes. yup I fixed more then a few typos and bugs.
  • More characters. Still a little messed up here with some of the cylon/human characters, mainly spawning and such, also the fact that the human lore base character are extremely limited in some areas.
  • Dozens of new names for ships.

Upcoming Content:

  • More characters!!!! yes... lets try this again...
  • More designs.
  • More names.
  • More Research/tech rework.

So I know that the content coming out has been vary slow compared to what I wanted but it is coming none the less so expect more content coming soon and at regular intervals.
