Homeworld 2 Mod — Battlestar Galactica Fleet Commander
This Homeworld 2 modification aims to recreate the atmosphere of Battlestar Galactica.
Essentially, it’s a BSG space RTS.
You issue complex tactical commands — such as suppression fire, defensive tactics, and movement under fire — as you try to survive the Cylon onslaught. You can even set up skirmish games with the included maps.
Although it’s not perfect — it has some balance and AI issues — to quote one reviewer, “It frakkin’ rocked!”
Check out this trailer:
The action starts around the 2:30 mark. We see a ship perform some physics-defying flips around 2:40 — as I said, the mod isn’t perfect — but the intensity of the battle more than makes up for it.
