Post news RSS New ships coming soon.

Hi all, some news on a soon to be incoming update.

Posted by on

Hey everyone,

So here's a little heads up on what's coming soon. I haven't had a lot of time to commit to the mod recently but I have managed to a little bit of work. As such a small update will be coming soon which will contain several new ships for the Colonial side. One is the Sleipnir class which I have shown previously on the page.

The others will be the armoured Jupiter class.

And the wartime Galactica, also known as the "Overkillstar"

I cannot give you an exact date for the update as the Galactica model has not yet been finished but when it has it will be a powerful opponent to face. The "Overkillstar" has more heavy turrets than a Mercury class (no heavy forward battery though) and with heavy armour and more flak turrets she will be a potent centrepiece for a fleet. My current plan is to introduce a tech upgrade called 'Wartime Footing' which will unlock armoured and overkill Jupiter class ships.

Please note that these ships do not mean that I have managed to find a VFX artist. Instead I commissioned these ships from the modder Jeroenimo who is a very talented guy, you should check out his awesome mod: Moddb.com

This of course means that you cannot expect future ships from this source as it is not a sustainable method of getting new models, rather just me adding a ship I really wanted to see into the mod from my own pocket.

Eventually I plan to introduce new heroes based on these ships but I have not yet fully thought through this yet so I will comment more when it happens.

Thanks for reading!

Awesome. Now I can have Aurora, a Ship I made based off the B&C Galactica. All it needs now is the blue stripes.

Blue stripes eh? Let me speak to Jeroenimo. If it's not too difficult maybe I could get an alternate texture with blue stripes you can swap in.

I wasn't thinking it would be that easy. Regardless. You don't have to do anything. The mod is enough for me!

Good news! He said that's easy to do. So I'll get the standard red markings version and another in blue.

Galactica has been commissioned by me. The Sleipnir is from Thomas39120 as I mentioned when I first announced its introduction into the mod.

Well I'm not going to Afghanistan to "defend freedom" this year so no. Update will be released shortly after the Galactica model is finished.
