ZATHRAS R1 official release
Here it is:

1.) Mod DB
2.) Download.com
3.) Fileplanet
4.) Mirrored on mediafire

For additional information, check out this thread  :lol:
To all who participated in the making or testing, you people are awesome  :nod:

The Babylon Project Public Development is proud to bring you Project Zathras.  This patch in the form of a mod allows you to both enjoy the game as it was originally released as well as experience new features from both Zathras and the FS2 Source Code Project.  It is also required for playing multipalyer on FS2NetD.

Over 5 months in development Zathras includes all kind of bug fixes as well as new content. It's also compatible with FS2_Open 3.6.10 which was released just over a week ago.  This allows players and developers to experience the new features the FS2 SCP team has added along with increased stability in gameplay.

Some of the features you may see in upcoming campaings include name plates and glow points for Nova class destroyers:



Poseidon class:



Explorer class and additional Omega Class:



New HUD animations and skyboxes:



Additional ship textures:



It also unlocks some hidden content from TBP 3.4b.  This Skybox for instance:



We'd love some feedback  :D

No-one ever listens to Zathras. Quite mad, they say. It is good that Zathras does not mind. He's even grown to like it. Oh yes. -Zathras

Re: Project Zathras officially released
I don't suppose you could upload it to some place like mediafire? Neither of those mirrors seem to work for me.

Re: ZATHRAS R1 official release
found a Zathras by accident on zdasia.com  ;7      it's spreading. Wondering who may have hosted it there...

This will be a pain in the ass if we have to update it.

ZDasia.com would most likely be a download.com mirror so it would update when download.com is.

Re: ZATHRAS R1 official release
Ah you guys unlocked the Earth Done skybox easter egg. I was involved in that of course. I did the setting up, conversion etc, but the render was Madaboutgames. It's a great one. The skybox was originally intended for BHX. Many times I've lost a campaign against the Shadows and seen Battlecrabs flying over it.
Be warned: This site's admins stole 100s of hours of my work. They will do it to you.

Re: ZATHRAS R1 official release
Hey guys is this mod compatible with the newest version of fs2 open 3_7_2?

Re: ZATHRAS R1 official release
I think that 3.7.0 is the last version of FSO that'll work with TBP without modifying one of the tables in the 3.4b release, not even Zathras can fix that one.
