Haree78 -> Battlestar Galactica Legends 1.1 Released (11/30/2011 10:42:41 AM)

*Spoiler warning*
This mod and the descriptions in this post contains mild spoilers, you have been warned.

Release 1.1:
Battlestar Galactica Legends
Extract the contents to the Distant Worlds folder on your hard drive. It will ask you to replace 2 files, say yes if you want to convert Distant Worlds jumps to sound like the ships jumping in the reimagined BSG series.

Battlestar Galactica has been updated for Legends.
This will allow you to play an alternate story of the re imagining of Battlestar Galactica.
"All this has happened before. All this will happen again"
Characters roles are based on their role in the show but have been born in to a Galaxy where the Battlestar Galactica fleet are not the only surviving humans.


Included in this release are unique ship sets for Humans, Cylons and the Cylon Guardians, based on TOS as they appeared in Razor.
Also included are many characters for both the Humans and the Cylons.
All 3 new races are playable with their own victory conditions and unique feel.


Installation
This mod requires Distant World Legends and at least version 1.7.0.2 update or higher.
Extract the contents of this .rar file to your Distant Worlds directory. This will replace the default sound effects for Hyperjumping. I advise you backup your sound directory first. These sound effects work better than the default effects no matter whether you are using this mod or not though [:)]

Credit where it is due:
The following people have allowed me to include parts of their work in to this mod.

Thanks to the great efforts of Conflictx I have used his colonial ships:

Thank you Haree :).

The pics looks great [:D].

Are we still able to use original DW races with this mod?




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 10:49:01 AM)

Yes all races are included and they use their own ship sets.
They may look slightly different than you are used to though ;)

Hmm interesting [:'(].

Just wondering if the victory condition for humans is to reach a colonise a certain planet ;)?




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 10:52:48 AM)

Unfortunately I couldn't do that. It's possible I can in the future but right now I kept the objectives fairly similar to base game as we don't have the modding guide yet.

Ahh I wasn't really serious. I mean you guys put so much work into these mods, we shouldn't really be demanding new stuff.

Did you find that game is a big laggy with 1702 patch with your mod?




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:00:36 AM)

Yes I did, when I wacked the size of the Galaxy right up. Wasn't sure if it was the mod causing it or not.




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:06:21 AM)

I think it was the 1702 patch. Few other people are saying the same thing.

Are you looking forward to the BSG movie? It will be based on the new series.




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:10:37 AM)

Do you mean the new series Blood and Chrome?
I'm going to wait for the pilot.

I'd hoped Caprica was going to scratch the BSG itch even though I didn't like the concept anyway. That was a huge let down though and felt like it lacked the character design BSG had, I couldn't even finish the series.

I've not heard about an upcoming BSG movie?




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:16:48 AM)

Nope, I meant the movie. It's actually based on the original series, I was wrong about that.

Here is the link;

Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:24:02 AM)

Well I thought the original series was crap. The sort thing I would watch for fun when I was a kid but never actually turn the telly on for it, like Buck Rogers.
Funny how much hate is being put to the reimagined series in those comments on that link, everyone I know loved it, weird :)




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:25:32 AM)

I love the new series, it's as realistic as sci-fi can be.


But you never know, the movie might be good. Until then, we got your mod [:'(]




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:28:44 AM)

I'll probably check it out no doubt. I know Richard Hatch has been campaigning for this movie for years, like ever since they did that earth based BSG. I guess someone finally listened to him!

I hope it is good though, not many Sci Fi movies these days are.




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:54:34 AM)

Damn, I downloaded the file but fore some reason it won't extract.




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 11:56:04 AM)

Hmm I'll check, should do. The one I have here does.
You have winrar?
What does it say when you try?




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 12:01:15 PM)

I have Zipitfree. When it extracts it just says 0 files extracted.

I used Zipitfree with your previous mod with no problems (as well as Igard's ST mod).

I'm try to download it again and I'll see how it goes




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 12:07:05 PM)

There's nothing wrong with the rar file, I just downloaded and tested it.




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 12:13:27 PM)

Damn, I don't know what the problem is on my end then.

I'll play around with it and see how it goes




HectorOfTroy -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 12:36:55 PM)

Got it extracted and just had a quick 5 min game. it looks great [:D].

I'll give it a whirl tommorow.

What do you think, which other races should I include if I play a bigger map?

Maybe another human empire (if it's possible to have original humans from DW- forgot to check)?




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 12:39:52 PM)

I like it on random. I actually replaced the original humans so you can't select them.
Putting the Cylons on average distance with Young starting and Guardians on Young but distant works out to a nice game. Add in several random starting empires.

Is there a way to add original humans? That way I can have them in the game and I can ally with them vs Cylons :).




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 1:26:07 PM)

I could do it, the original race pic for humans would look out of place but might be able to find a suitable alternative. I'll look in to it when I find some time.

Don't worry about it, you must be busy. I jsut thought maybe I could copy all the race stuff from DW legends in BSG folder. I don't know much about modding so that might sound silly.




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 1:34:47 PM)

It's a lot more complex than that I'm afraid.




tjhkkr -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 3:50:34 PM)

This is some really good work.
I have never seen the new series; it looks a little more frightening than the old one... especially with those pics of people in the tubs sweating and looking very unhappy...
The mod is well done!




Igard -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 4:44:13 PM)

Excellent work, Haree. This looks terrific.

I've installed, and I'll try and squeeze in a wee game later on. [:)]




Haree78 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 4:44:17 PM)

Thank you :)

The new series is pretty dark, as a show about a race being reduced to 40,000 people all fleeing death should be!




WoodMan -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 6:11:47 PM)

I've not seen the old series, but I love the new series.  Series 1-3 beat all Hollywood sci-fi and the other sci-fi TV shows in my opinion [:)]  A shame series 4 and 5 sucked though [:D]




ehsumrell1 -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 6:48:47 PM)

Way to go Haree! Looks great! [:)]

Grisha -> RE: Battlestar Galactica Legends (11/30/2011 8:36:05 PM)

Many thanks, Haree! Love this mod and the music is the best.
