Hello everyone. I know that a lot of people are looking forward to the mod Battlestar Armada, so I am making this new thread due to the old one being, well, old, really old.

As you might of noticed, the team has been appearing and disappearing over the last few months. Each of us has real life obligations that come before modding Armada 2. Work has slowed, but every so often we get sped up.

Don't worry, this is STILL GOING :)

Anyway, now that I have said that, here are the specs of the mod so far:

(You can read all this on our forums (check my sig for link) as that gets constant updates)

Sides: 2 sides, though there will be TOS and TNS

Multiple ship classes, each doing something different. Fighters Trying to make it as canon as possible while still keeping the Armada feeling.

A side note: The pictures that you will about to see contain ships that will not be in the main mod. However, they will appear in the ship packs we will put up. Yes, you heard right, there will be multiple ship packs along with the mod if you want more variety in your fleets :)

And here we have some screen shots to get your adrenaline pumping:

Hello: This is so awesome, I never get tired to see the works you have done. I specially like your TNS Cylon Basestars and that TOS heavy Battlestar :stallard: Keep up the great work.

Exciting stuff! But I want to see resurrection ships and hubs --and the Colonial Fleet!

I'm just selfish that way. ;)

:cool:

These images look great!

Just out of pure curiosity: have you gotten the FTL-effect right? I was/am, trying a similar effect (though for something non-BSG/Trek)...

Thanks HighGuardKnight. The fighters I had a lot of fun with. They're small enough to have a squadron, and low poly enough to make squadrons (each fighter was rebuilt to have 100-140 polys each)

Don't you worry. When there are decent pics of the res hub, a model will be constructed. As for res ships, wait and see.

Yes, the Helios Warstar looks great, though we are not sure about if we will use this or another one we have.

We have/haven't, it's in our "to fix" pile, cuz it sort of works, just not the way we want it.

Anyway. We have a lot more cylon ships that those posted above. What you can see is a very TNS geared cylon fleet. What you have to look forward to is the TOS fleet and the TOS/TNS (Guardian basestar-ish) fleet (much like the columbia battlestar-ish designs for colonials)

I spy some old screenshots, do I not? ;) Can't say I'm a fan of BSG though. I've never ever watched a full episode, even though have been told it is a good sci-fi show. I simply cannot find it all to watch and it is only on TV via Sky, which is in my living room, usually with other people watching different things. Regardless, I shall probably download and give this project a try once released. I figure, what people don't know, they can learn. Granted wont be like watching the show, but I should get to learn a little about the series via this project. ;) A question also: Are those Fighters in Squads (like various units in the B5 Armada), or are they single low poly units?
