One night at a lan party, it was at the point when we had tired of the games we had overplayed that night, and wanted something else. Within the space of a few minutes, I threw together this mini mod, in which one player commands the Galactica, and the second player mans Cylon base ships. It turned out that it is very fun, and we spent long periods playing it, and using it to "unwind" if you will, from other games, as a round of it only takes a few minutes usually. Hereâ€™s how it works: Player 1 starts with the Galactica itself, a ship armed with dozens of point defence batteries, and several heavy guns. Also in itâ€™s arsenal is the ability to make ftl jumps to any point on the map within a few seconds. It has good sight range, and only slightly less weapons range than Cylon missiles. Player 2 starts with 3 base stars, no one baseship is able to destroy the Galactica, but a couple at once, or all 3 can. They have no Ftl, and sensor range across about 3 quarters of an average map, meaning that while they may know where the Galactica is, they have to be able to get to it. The result is players laying traps, using nebulae to hide, cherishing those few seconds you get to repair while Cylons are chasing you, and always trying to outwit each other. Currently the mod consists of very little, 2 ship types, and some weapons for them. But it really doesnâ€™t need much more. Planned additions are as follows: -Second set of factions, sides 3 and 4. 3 would, instead of simply having the Galactica, have the Galactica and Pegasus. Side 4 would probably have 4 base ships, but they would be stronger. -New special weapons, like an array of Cylon viruses, including one based on nanites, a Galactica flak Barrier based on shield remodulation, and nukes. -Super side will be used to allow the players to fight in new Galactica, or old Galactica setting (mostly a graphics change) -Maybe some goal oriented maps, like one in which the Cylons must protect a resurrection ship, etc.
