Nightstalker's Universe Mod has been in the works for 9 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.
Highest Rated (4 agree) 9/10
A lot of potential here, on the NSU mod. I would have given it a 10 if there was a open single player option. But NS wants it only as Multi-Player, shame really. But with that aside, this mod has everything for the Sci Fi Geek in all of us..lol Graphics on most of the ships are sharp and detailed, only a few along with some stations that need a revamp. Almost no trade lanes, but your cruise engine's are increased to 900 to cope with the large distance's, a 1000 cruise would be better as that would…
