DarkGunman's BC Improvements Pack



This is a massive Bridge Commander Improvement Pack that really adds to the Bridge Commander experience. It contains loads of mods with many new sounds and textures, a new interface font and new ship icons. This is a must have for any Bridge Commander user.

And to make things better, its compatible with MPMP so you can use all these enhancements online battling against others. And it comes with an installer so no manual work is required.

I strongly urge you to download this now!



DarkGunman's BC Improvements Pack FINAL

Compatible with Normal BC, DarkShimmer's MPMP

This Mod pack started as an idea put together all the mods i would usually have to re-install after installing BC, thus saving me time. However, this grew into the pack that that it is now - a mod to truely make BC a cinematic experience and make you feel like you really are in an episode or a film. As far as I'm aware, this pack is the first to collate all of this together to make installation easier and the BC experience better.

Best way to compare this to what the original looked/sounded like, is to create a copy of you BC folder and run a quick battle with the bases and the ships - then try it with the Improvements Pack, you'll notice it straight away :)

Please note that some of the mods in this pack have been the work of other people who have had these mods freely available for sometime, so where possible they have been credited for their original work but I will also say whether ot not I have tweaked them to further improve them for better effect.

Before installing, you MUST either rename your /SFX/Music folder to back it up, or delete it - while a lot of new music is added, it does not replace everything so a lot of the existing BC music would cut in.. spoiling the cinematic feel. Once you've backed-up/removed the /SFX/Music folder, extract the contents of this pack into your BC folder and overwrite the files if prompted. Since this replaces no critical files, it won't affect your multiplayer scripts.
